Description

(click here to see curriculum links)

Imagine a maths lesson with no pens or paper, lots of noisy teamwork and the students scrambling to cram in just one more problem before the bell...

 

Hands-on Maths uses a range of beautifully designed and presented puzzles to extend the foundational mathematical skills of your students. Students compete in teams, earning points for their team by solving puzzles that will stretch their numeracy, shape comparison, spatial reasoning, logic and problem solving skills to the limit.


The puzzles are loosely grouped by difficulty and the range presented will challenge students of all abilities.  The more difficult the puzzle, the more points they are worth for the teams. The session is split into two rounds with a short whole class challenge during the interval.


Give your students the opportunity to practice their mathematical thinking skills, and to prove to themselves - and you - that they can do it!
