International Day of Mathematics
The International Day of Mathematics takes place annually on 14 March. These activities are designed around the IDM's theme of “Maths for a Better World”. With Easter following shortly after the event, the activities for this year are themed around sustainable chocolate consumption. The resources look at particular parts of the chocolate industry and have different tasks for you to choose from.
How to use the activities
You might like to explore the ideas with other food stuffs or industries. You could also use these activities for Fairtrade Fortnight.
Design a poster competition
We are running a poster competition, with one winner picked from each key stage group.
Turing Tumble have kindly donated four of their kits as 1st prizes for the competition. These are a great way to explore logic and coding, and come with challenges that would be well placed in a maths classroom. There will also be some other smaller prizes available.
For access to the Key Stage 2 resources and competition details please visit the MEI website.
