TICKET SALES NOW CLOSED!
Following the success of Christmaths 2015 and Christmaths 2016, we're back on Sunday 27th August 2017 with another enrichment event for maths teachers.
The full provisional programme is now available to view here.
10.00am - 2.45pm: Explore Bletchley Park, the home of British code breaking. Attend optional workshops including a demonstration of a real working Enigma machine.
2.45pm - 4.45pm: Visit The National Museum of Computing to take a look at the world's largest collection of functional historic computers, including the rebuilt Colossus (the world’s first electronic computer), the WITCH (the world's oldest working digital computer), and lots of computers and games consoles you'll recognise from your youth!
4.45pm - 6.00pm: Gather together with fellow maths teachers for a cup of tea and a catch up (three days after GCSE results are released, there'll be lots to discuss!). We'll play some maths games and try Jo's annual mathsy quiz, and there'll be some freebies.
From 6.00pm: Optional drinks, dinner and night out at a local hotel.
This is a non-profit event.
£15.50 + booking fee
The event will take place at Bletchley Park and next door at The National Museum of Computing. These venues are easily accessible by car (close to the M1, M40 and A5) and there is parking on site.
Annoyingly, there will be no direct trains to Bletchley from London that weekend because Euston is closed. There are numerous other engineering works happening. Please contact me if you can offer lifts or if you need a lift.
Drinks & Hotel
For those travelling a long way, there are dozens of affordable hotels nearby.
Most of us will be staying on the Sunday night at Premier Inn Milton Keynes South West (Furzton Lake) which is where we will have drinks and bar food in the evening. Book the hotel as soon as possible to get a good price.
All welcome in the evening, even if you're not staying at the hotel!
How many tickets are there?
There are only 80 tickets available so book quickly! Ticket sales close on 14th August 2017.
Can I bring my partner?
This event is aimed at maths teachers but you're welcome to buy two tickets and bring your partner if you like.
Where can I eat?
You can buy your own lunch in the cafe at Bletchley Park or a bring packed lunch to eat in the grounds.
What's the hashtag?
Please tweet using the hashtag #summaths.
What's the dress code?
I can't make the date! Will there be another one?
Sorry if the date doesn't suit you - The National Museum of Computing has limited opening times. This date was chosen to be as close as possible to the start of the new school year - it's a good time to get excited and inspired. There won't be a Christmaths event this year but there might be a #summaths18 next year.
