Event type: 

Making primary maths more creative: a seminar with Rob Eastaway

Make learning maths creative and achievable for children and young people inside and outside of the classroom. 

Key learning: 

  • Ways of making maths more engaging for all abilities, with activities that have a low threshold and high ceiling 
  • Problem-solving through games, puzzles, curiosities, and mathematical “magic” that can be transferred straight to the classroom 
  • How to engage parents in their children’s maths, including activities for parents to incorporate into their busy lives 
  • Enriching teachers’ own views of maths beyond some of the narrow constraints of the curriculum. 

* The content is ideal for the upper years of primary (P4 to P7) but there are many ideas that are relevant to younger and older children too.
