Math Club Uppsala

Math Club Uppsala is a collaboration between Uppsala municipality and the Department of Mathematics (UU) It is an activity for children who are good at math, but want to explore more difficult math than the subject at school. The math that is discussed at the meetings lies usually outside the school program and the focus is on developing problem-solving and reasoning skills.

Please note that your child can only go to the Math Club if you go to a school in Uppsala municipality (regardless of whether it is a municipal or an independent school).
