!! #COVID-19#UPDATE#13NOV2020#

The Society has now released some puzzles for home use based on existing
FunMaths Roadshow puzzles. The Roadshow remains on sale and purchasers
are welcome to adapt problems for online or home use. We are planning to
release a selection of puzzles online with guidance for how they may be used
in teaching.

Aoife Hunt's Popular Lecture on 19 November will be given online. #The#Christmas#lecture#will#consist#
#of#two#short#talks#by#Colin#Wright#and##Yolanda#Ohene# #of#two#30 minute#talks#by#Colin#Wright#and##Yolanda#Ohene# on 11 December.
Two lectures are planned for the early part
of 2021, namely the Presidential lectures of Anna Pratoussevitch and
Gaynor Bahan; these may well be held online.

Open Challenge will be as normal and the
Pop Maths Quiz will take place in some form, so we should have a full
programme of activities in 2020/21.

The LivMS Bursary Fund (charity no. 1156909) remains open for business.
The next deadline is
#31#January#2021#(urgent# applications will be considered on a first come first served basis). The Bursary Fund
has been fully funded by the Society since its inception but this
funding is currently in doubt, so donations to the Fund would be
gratefully received. If you would like to donate, please email
newstead@liv.ac.uk for details.
