Workshops are held one evening per week for 6 weeks and resources are made available for teachers or other institutions to use.

There is no charge for this event.

That's Maths Blog

Professor Peter Lynch has a twice-monthly column "That's Maths" on the science page of the Irish Times (first and third Thursday each month). This is aimed to try to assist public understanding of matters mathematical. The blog is available at thatsmaths.com

 Undergraduate Ambassador Scheme Module 30060

 The Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme (UAS) module is a module offered by the UCD School of Mathematics and Statistics, University College Dublin. This module offers Stage 3 or Stage 4 undergraduates who have taken an appropriate level of undergraduate mathematics, the chance to work with mathematics teachers and students in local secondary schools. The undergraduate receives five academic credits for successful completion of the module and this contributes towards his or her final degree.
