Outreach - For students
MESME Maths Circle
A Maths Circle is a group of students who come together to grapple with intriguing puzzles, discover and explore exciting ideas and learn to think like mathematicians.
Our experience is that the students who most enjoy the Circles are high-attainers who love problem-solving and imaginative, creative thinking.
Applications are now open for sessions starting in January: find out more and apply today!
Extensions: mathematics beyond the classroom
Online sessions of problem solving and mathematical thinking that will take place every Monday, 17:00 to 18:30 during the Spring term. The sessions will involve deeper thinking and groupwork to tackle problems that you may not get to learn about at GCSE. They will get you out of your comfort zone, and discussing new maths with your peers.
King’s Maths School are offering Y12 Extension Physics sessions. The first priority of the sessions will problem solving as preparation for university admissions exams such as the PAT, ENGAA & NSAA, followed up with interview practice. There will also be some training for the British Physics Olympiads. Essentially the focus will be on meaningful physics enrichment.
GCSE+ Physics is a free fortnightly programme for students in Year 11 who enjoy physics and seek a deeper understanding of physical concepts. You will get the chance to take part in practicals and solidify your understanding with experienced, skilled and knowledgeable physics teachers.
GCSE+ Maths is an extensive programme of enrichment for students in Years 9 and 10, with sessions running fortnightly on weekday evenings during term time from September.
GCSE+ Maths Year 11
The focus of these sessions is preparation for GCSE: each week we look in detail at a particular topic from the syllabus and, together, work through some challenging questions on that topic. These sessions are designed for those Year 11 students who are aiming for a top grade in GCSE Maths, and are thinking of studying Maths and perhaps also Further Maths in Year 12.
GCSE+ Maths Year 11 sessions take place online on Fridays, from 16:45 to 18:00, starting Friday 10 September.
If you would like to join us, please email KCLMSoutreach@kcl.ac.uk.
