posted 19 Oct 2015, 04:36 by

I would encourage all young people interested in mathematics to consider joining The Society of Young Mathematicians organised by The Mathematical Association. 

Members will receive the following every term (3 times a year), delivered direct to their homes: 

Mathematical Pie – an eight page A5 magazine aimed at pupils from 10 to 14 years of age (but is read by people of all ages) which contains interesting maths problems, puzzles and activities. The questions vary in their difficulty so that there are suitable starting points for all ages. 

SYMmetryplus –  The SYMS sixteen-page A4 newsletter, aimed at all ages but particularly those aged 10 to 18  contains short articles, news, things to do, calculator hints, book reviews, games, puzzles and competitions. 

The Mathematical Association levy a small charge of £9.99 per year for membership of SYMS.  

If you are interested, please complete the SYMS application form available from your maths teacher and return to the Mathematical Association or you can complete via The Mathematical Association website at:
