As part of a collection of activities for Maths Week Scotland 2019 the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh is hosting a reception for mathematics teachers.

All primary and secondary school mathematics teachers are warmly invited to this celebratory evening where we will share our passion and love for mathematics, and give a glimpse of the fun and creative side of the subject discipline.
