Discover our various outreach projects, designed to share our enthusiasm for mathematics with school and college students.
Current activities and events
Our undergraduates are involved in the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme (UAS) and the Students in Classrooms Scheme whereby students are placed in schools to inspire and encourage younger students. UAS is incorporated into the module MA3511 Communicating Mathematics, and as such may be chosen as part of the Mathematics degree course.
If you are a mathematics teacher in Leicester or Leicestershire and would like to get involved with either UAS or the Student Associate Scheme, please contact Professor Stephen Garrett.
Year 12 and 13 problem-solving courses
