Our Maths Challenge Carousel is a collection of 32 hands on Maths Puzzles and Problem Solving activities. The students in teams of 5 will choose which of the activities they wish to tackle. They can choose from three difficulty levels with each activity providing an opportunity to score some points for a fun competition.
The day can be run from 2 hours up to a full day and can be complimented with one of our finale finishes.
Curriculum topics available: Fractions, Logic and Problem Solving, Measurement, Geometry, Statistics, Ratio and proportion, Algebra, Shape, Graphs and data.
The Maths Challenge Carousel covers large range of mathematical topics, all without text books and computers.
We can accommodate any number of students from 10 to a whole year group.
Due to the hands on nature of our activities, those children with Special Educational Needs will find themselves able to access our activities with great success. Class teachers are often apprehensive about how those pupils will be able to input into the workshops but are quickly put at ease when they see how easily they take to the hands on and visual challenges.
We are The Problem Solving Company and we travel nationwide delivering maths workshops in schools. As a company, we have developed a series of activities to encourage core skills and fundamental thinking in mathematics. We have broken through the "boring" stigma attached to mathematics through play, discussion and team work. Pupils are presented with a series of hands on challenges which require reasoning, logic and trial and error to get them to their solution whilst at the same time using the correct mathematical terminology and hitting curriculum links.
