Think Maths is a team of experienced mathematics speakers who visit schools to run workshops and give talks for a wide range of ages and abilities. Our sessions are interactive, engaging and cover mathematical content which will grab the attention of students and inspire them to get excited about maths.
Think Maths was set up by Matt Parker, the Stand-Up Mathematician. Ex-maths teacher, Matt now talks about maths in the media, is a YouTuber and maths author. Matt is joined by Katie Steckles and Zoe Griffiths. All three are experienced speakers and regularly speak at Maths Inspiration, Maths in Action and AMSP days.
