- Theme Park Maths
Back to the classroom. Keeping up the core skills with children is essential, especially with the challenges that face them in secondary school. Keeping pupils engaged in maths can be challenging (“What’s the point…we’ve finished our SATs”), but inspiring them with a mathematical project can keep minds buzzing whilst completing maths challenges. One such activity, popular with quite a few teachers is a ‘Theme Park Maths’ project, which is freely available at PrimaryResourceCentre (click here), comprising of a multitude of tasks that help them plan and budget a theme park. This task can be a group project, or some may wish to design their own, but the maths skills within will challenge children, providing some problem-solving issues which pop up throughout the project.
