As part of our Mathematics curriculum this term, we invited World of Maths (a travelling, interactive Maths Workshop) to visit our school.
World of Maths gave our Year 4 to 7s an ideal opportunity to see how maths is applied to everyday life situations and to explore Maths in a practical, hands-on environment. Students were encouraged to communicate their Maths ideas and answers as they worked through the 17 challenges in small groups. Students gained insights into problem solving, working in teams, and real-world applications of Maths, demonstrating that Maths truly is everywhere. And even more important, that Maths is FUN! But don't take our word for it......
