The Royal Institution coordinates enriching masterclasses for students across the UK. The mathematics masterclasses are designed to encourage, inspire and engage young people in the art and practice of mathematics. The highly interactive sessions introduce students to aspects or applications of maths which are not usually covered in the school curriculum. The age range varies from Primary Mathematics Masterclasses, Secondary Mathematics Masterclasses (Year 8 and above), Engineering Masterclasses (Year 9), and Computer Science Masterclasses.
The Mathematical Institute runs and hosts the Oxfordshire Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses (Years 9-11). Teachers at local state schools will receive a pack each October asking them to nominate students for the classes, which run on six Saturdays from January to March.
