Mathemagician workshops: maths magic for schools

If you’re a maths teacher, you probably spend a good deal of time trying to think up new ways to show your students the power of maths – to convey to them how intriguing it is and how relevant it is to their lives. What you need is a mathemagician.

maths taught with magic

Our maths magic workshop is a great way to bring the maths curriculum to life and enrich your lessons. We’ll entertain your students with magic and mind reading tricks that are rooted in maths and then explain each of the maths principles at work in a way that your students will understand and – importantly – remember.

Your students will be gripped by the magic of maths and have a lot of fun learning through maths tricks and games.

Our maths magic workshops are effective because they've been developed by experts in both fields – professional magician Ian Carpenter and Garrod Musto, a highly experienced secondary school head of mathematics. All of the magic tricks that we use in the workshop are closely matched to the maths curriculum.
