This grant is to stimulate interest and enable involvement in mathematics from Key Stage 1 to 5 (and beyond) by enhancing and enriching mathematical study beyond the curriculum, engaging the public with mathematics and encouraging unusual ways of communicating mathematics.

2) Teacher CPD Grants (up to £400): http://www.lms.ac.uk/grants/teacher-cpd-grants
This grant is here to provide opportunities for mathematics teachers to attend training which is specially mathematical. It is intended to facilitate mathematical professional development to allow teachers in UK schools to develop their subject knowledge, engage in a deeper understanding of how to develop mathematical thinking, appreciate the interconnectivity of mathematical topics, update themselves on mathematical curriculum reform and the use of technology where appropriate.
