How it works

I’m a Mathematician, Get me out of here is an exciting opportunity for students to deepen their understanding of maths and explore how it is applied in the world around them.

It’s an online STEM enrichment activity where students connect with people who have maths at the heart of their work.

In the activity, students:

    • ASK their own questions to mathematicians about everything and anything.
    • have conversations with mathematicians during a 40-minute, text-based live CHAT.

They will connect with mathematicians from a variety of backgrounds and industries, helping students see the wide range of careers that are available to them.

I’m a Mathematician aims to improve motivation to learn, enabling students to see how the maths taught in the classroom is relevant to them and how it is applied in the real-world. We hope to broaden aspirations, break down stereotypes and enthuse students about mathematics.
