Counting down to Maths Week

East Lothian Museum Service is delighted to have received funding this year from Maths Week Scotland. In John Muir’s Birthplace we have purchased some scales for families to explore the world of weights an measures – just as John’s Dad would have used in his meal dealership on this site. We also have some old fashioned scales of the type that would have been used in the 19th Century, see how different they are from your kitchen scales today.

Drop in activities are available from 25 September – 3 October, and if you ring us your correct worksheets, we have maths week themed prizes for you. Hone your maths skills and have fun at the same time, what’s not to love!
