Workshop Leaders

Python workshop for school pupils and teachers

Dr Stephen Lynch NTF FIMA SFHEA @DrStephenLynch

This workshop will introduce delegates to Python, the most popular programming language in the world. The workshop leader is a National Teaching Fellow, winning the award for programming in the Maths curriculum, widening participation, and research feeding into teaching. Delegates need no programming knowledge, and they will be shown how Python is invaluable in the STEM subjects and provides a means of levelling up in this technological age. Stephen runs national workshops with the Institute of Maths and its Applications (IMA) on “Python for A-Level Maths and Beyond.” He also runs international workshops on “Python for Scientific Computing and TensorFlow for Artificial Intelligence.” A book of the same title is due to be published by CRC Press in May 2023, and includes an introduction to Python for new users.

The best maths you don't teach

Peter Williams @mathsimpact

An exploration of some of the maths students cover in GCSE and A-level computer science, focusing on connections to the maths curriculum, and ways we can bridge the gap meaningfully for students.

Expect some hands on puzzle solving, but don't worry, no prior knowledge of computer science is required!


Maths Cake Competition

Our cake competition is always a highlight of the day. Dozens of delegates battle it out to be crowned the winner of the maths-themed cake bake-off.

Be sure to check out your colleagues' handywork on Twitter at #MC31Cake. And, of course, remember to tweet a picture of your own cake before you finish it all! We know how delicious they are!

Treasure Hunt

Throughout the day you will have a collection of mathematical questions that you need to find and solve, with each question labelled with a greek letter. Solve the questions, and using our cipher, convert the greek letters to give you a mathematical word. If you get the correct word, you will be entered into a prize draw and be in with a the chance of winning an Amazon Fire Tablet.

Charity Raffle

As with all of our conferences, we want to take advantage of this incredible opportunity to contribute to worthy cause! We will be running a raffle where you can win a selection of mathematical prizes, with all proceeds going to the Macmillan Cancer Support.

Friday Night Meet-up

It's a MathsConf tradition for delegates arriving on Friday to meet up at a local bar to catchup with the community, network and talk all things mathematics.

We'll be sending out further information to all ticket holders nearer the time.
