This week the AMSP are taking part in celebrating the very first Maths Week England.
The event aims to raise the profile of maths throughout England and enable children and adults from all social and economic backgrounds to access and enjoy interesting mathematical experiences. MEI and the AMSP are both supporting Maths Week England.
Alongside our fantastic competitions, we have also released some useful resources that teachers can use in the classroom to get involved in this exciting event.
Where’s the Maths in that?
These resources are designed to demonstrate to students that mathematics can be found all around them. They are very easy to use, as they simply display a photograph and ask, “Where’s the maths in that?”.
Using photographs helps to stimulate creativity, discussion and debate, and will demonstrate to students that maths is not always about the right or wrong answer or written methods. You can view the resource on our website.
Maths Club Activities
These resources aim to support the many Maths Clubs that schools run across the country. Each activity is fully resourced and accessible to all 11-16 students at different levels.
The resources are designed to take around 30 minutes to work through, with extension activities to develop the ideas further according to students’ engagement and interest. You can view the resource on our website.
