Due to the global pandemic, most MathsJams are not meeting in person, and we're encouraging people to stay safe and be careful. In some parts of the world, Jams are meeting again, at the discretion of local organisers - use the find a jam page to find your local.
Arrangements for a central online virtual MathsJam (via Slack/Gather.Town) are in place for anyone who wants it, with individual online Jams in some locations, and you can follow along as usual on Twitter. Please contact your local Jam organiser for details of how to get involved.
MathsJam is a monthly opportunity for like-minded self-confessed maths enthusiasts to get together in a pub and share stuff they like. Puzzles, games, problems, or just anything they think is cool or interesting.
We meet on the second-to-last Tuesday of every month, from around 7pm in the evening, in locations around the world.
For more details of local events, choose your region from the menu, or visit the find a jam page.
The next MathsJam evening is:
Tuesday 19th October in Auckland, Bexhill, Bristol, Canterbury, Cheltenham, Christchurch, Dunedin NZ, East Dorset, Edinburgh, Gold Coast, Guildford, Manchester, Melbourne, Online (UK), Spokane WA, Stockholm, Suzhou, Sydney, Turin, Vancouver BC, Växjö and Wellington.
Thursday 28th October in Timaru.
If there isn't an event in your area, and you'd like there to be one, please email email@example.com for details of how you can set one up!
MathsJam is not for children. MathsJam is an event for adults to meet and socialise, which is why they are mainly held in licensed premises, where under-18s are not allowed. MathsJam™ is a registered trademark of Stand-up Maths Limited.
MathsJam also runs an annual gathering which takes place every November in the UK, and also in Oceania (New Zealand). More information about the gatherings can be found on the gathering pages.
Conduct at MathsJam events: We hope that attendees will maintain a standard of behaviour at our in-person and online events, including not engaging in any exclusionary behaviour or language against anyone based on their race, gender (binary, assigned or otherwise), disability, mental health, sexual orientation, level of education or age. Harassment, unconsented physical contact or sexual attention, aggression, elitism and pressure or judgement about people's choice of drinks are also not acceptable. We encourage all attendees to assist in applying this code of conduct, and to step in or report it to the organiser if they witness or experience anything violating it. We want MathsJam to be enjoyable for all attendees, and everyone should feel welcome and safe at our events. If you have any issues or questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
