COVID-19 NOTICE: Some MathsJams may not be going ahead during the pandemic, at the discretion of local MathsJam organisers. Please email them, or check the Twitter accounts of local Jams, to confirm whether events are going ahead. We will try to keep this site up-to-date, but you should check before going along in case of last-minute changes.
Arrangements for an online virtual MathsJam (via Slack) are in place for anyone who's missing their usual Jam, 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.

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. Do let us know via email@example.com if you come across an event for children being called "MathsJam", or you see MathsJam being promoted to young students. 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 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.
