Maths Masterclasses

Ri Masterclass Network logo

The Royal Institution Mathematics Masterclasses gives S2 pupils an insight into how Mathematics can be applied and utilised outside of the classroom. 


The Aberdeen Maths Masterclasses series has been kindly sponsored by Chevron for over 12 years and the Masterclasses have become very popular with students and teachers in this time.

The main focus of the series is the application of Mathematics to real life problems, a message which can often get lost in the school environment. 


The Royal Institution’s (Ri) purpose is to harness science for the maximum benefit of society, encouraging people to think more deeply about the wonders and applications of science through education and heritage activities for people of all ages and backgrounds. These include the world-famous CHRISTMAS LECTURES; public talks from the world's greatest thinkers in its historic lecture theatre; a national programme of Masterclasses for young people in mathematics, engineering and computer science; hands-on science workshops in its Young Scientist Centre; animations and films from its award-winning Ri Channel and the preservation of its scientific legacy through the Faraday Museum and archival collections.
