Mathematics

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday in the month from 2.00-4.00pm at Manor Park Sports Club.

Each session will focus on a particular theme and is intended to suit new members as well as those who have attended previously. Please see the schedule below. There will be exposition by the session leader (who will vary) and the opportunity to answer practice questions of varying difficulty. Plenty of help will be at hand for those who might be a little rusty, but if you still have that mathematical curiosity you will be more than welcome. Details of the different sessions will be published three times a year, at the beginning of each ‘term’.
