Raise achievement in Maths with these challenging and exciting enrichment activities, by John Senior and Elizabeth Hind
Enriching Maths is a collection of brand new activities that aims, through challenging enrichment work, to inspire more children to study mathematics, to encourage mathematic literacy amongst all students, to stimulate creativity with regard to mathematical thinking and to promote an informed debate amongst students about the application and direction which mathematics takes in our increasingly complex society.
Enriching Maths will allow you to:
Enrich Maths lessons for all students and provide extension material that will challenge more able students
Improve students’ performance in this core subject by enriching the curriculum
Enhance students’ enjoyment of Maths and promote it as a subject for further study
Support whole-school improvement by raising standards in core subjects
Provide opportunities for students to expand their thinking skills through problem-solving and develop their social skills through teamwork
Improve students’ ability to self-direct their individual learning and help them to have fun and gain pleasure from thinking
This brand new collection brings enrichment to this area of study, designed to stretch a young person’s thinking. The activities can even provide a strong base for applying further study in Maths.
Enriching Maths presents activities that are based within the national curriculum but that will also enrich and extend it. The activities are presented in three sections:
- 10-minute activities
- Lesson-length enrichment activities for Key Stage 3 and 4
- Day-long enrichment and extension activities.
Each activity is accompanied by teacher’s notes on how to use it and suggestions for further work and research, should your students wish to take the project even further. The book also includes a CD-Rom containing all of the activity task sheets for ease of reproduction.
