Looking for something different in maths?
Something that will bring maths alive in a unique and entertaining way…
Something that will not only engage students with maths, but leave them astounded by the hidden power and wonder of numbers…
Something that will have students (and teachers) roaring with laughter, wondering ‘wow’ how did that happen, then trying to solve amazing mathematical puzzles…
Then why not try The Maths Show?
The Maths Show is a live stage performance like no other.
The Maths Show is full of mathematical history, puzzles, magic and fun – designed to entertain and engage students while substantially increasing their interest in mathematics.
During the show, students will be astounded at the amazing power of numbers to control the mind, predict the future, reveal secrets and much, much more.
As part of the performance, students will meet famous and (not so famous) mathematicians from ancient Babylon and Greece, Pioneers of Algebra, Famous Women of Maths, Champions of Chance and Data, as well as Experts in Shape and Space.
The Maths Show is highly interactive, with substantial audience involvement, and will leave students wanting to know more about the mathematical principles that underly the onstage antics.
The Maths Show is a wonderfully fun maths activity that is perfect for a Maths Day activity, a Maths Week activity or as a unique maths incursion at any time of the year.
We are proud to partner with the Mathematical Association of Victoria, the show’s principal sponsor, and with the Mathematical Association of New South Wales to provide teachers with a resource kit and lesson notes for optional follow on activities that can be built into a unit of work.
The Maths Show is brought to you by the same team that created the long-running stage shows, The History of Maths, and Famous Female Mathematicians, seen in hundreds of schools throughout Australia, and who produced the Maths and Cricket and Maths and Soccer DVDs that have been seen by students throughout Australia, America, Europe and Asia.
Two versions of the show are available, one designed for Junior Secondary students, and one designed for Upper Primary Students.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to bring maths alive for your students.

‘Our students really enjoyed The Maths Show. The presentation was absolutely what we were looking for to engage and educate our Year 7s and 8s. 45 minutes was a perfect amount of time. The performer (Patrick) was funny and thoroughly entertaining. The “follow-up” material helped to make the show even more relevant. We plan to book The Maths Show again.’ Vanessa Rich Tintern Grammar
