Maths Workshops

The NZMOC run regular 'maths workshops' in various locations in New Zealand. A maths workshop is a place for recreational mathematicians to meet and practice solving problems. Our attendees are mostly high school students, but anyone is welcome to attend. If you would like to attend, simply sign up to the mailing list below and then show up.

Discuss the workshop problems online

We have a fairly active community online, consisting of students and helpers from all over New Zealand and some from other parts of the world. If you cannot attend a workshop in person, then feel free to have a go at the problems anyway, and discuss them with others.

The NZMOC is usually happy to support the creation of new Maths Workshops at alternative venues. If you are interested starting a Workshop at your local school or university then contact the NZMOC secretary, for information.
