Fields Trip

We are excited to be offering the Fields Trip program both online and in-person this year! When you request for a workshop, please specify which format you would like to attend.



Attention teachers! You can bring your class to the Department of Mathematics for a half-day program on the University of Toronto Campus or join virtually. This program is offered at no cost. At this time, we do not offer off-campus school visits.

The lessons provided give students a chance to explore math concepts not typically covered in the standard curriculum. Students will see how these concepts connect to the real world and to the research going on in our department by some of the world's top math researchers. They will also get to experience a class at Canada's largest university. Whenever possible, classes are held at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematics, a wonderfully math-rich environment.
