House of Maths School Workshops Primary & Secondary in Dorset & South - Primary School Maths Workshops

(or head over to Secondary Maths Workshops)

How can maths help you to win at Monopoly? How can you tell a hexahedron from a 664?  Why do road-gritters love their even and odd numbers? And why are multiples of four so important to pirates?

Explore the laws of chance, construct your own 3-D shapes, or discover the enormous numbers that helped an American schoolgirl prove her maths teacher wrong. Or try a selection of interactive maths games and puzzles: work as a team to solve the puzzles, or discover how the hidden maths makes the games work. All House Of Maths workshops have been thoroughly road-tested, and are designed to reinforce mental maths and problem-solving strategies, while using mathematics to reveal surprising patterns in both the human and the natural worlds.

House Of Maths Workshops are designed for one class size at a time, from Years 1 to 7 – so ideal for small schools or one-form-entry Primaries. The Maths Workshops typically last from 30 – 60 mins, with a maximum of six (or occasionally seven) half-hour workshops during one school day, or combine the workshops with a whole-school assembly to start the day off if you like. The workshops can take place in either a classroom or school Hall, but Barney prefers to remain in the same room where possible. Or how about a custom workshop for your “nurture” or “Gifted&Talented” groups, or for a specially selected group plus their parents?
