Raise the profile of maths at school with an As Creatives workshop
The UK’s leading providers of creative education, As Creatives’ workshops provide a fantastic springboard for raising the profile of maths in schools. Rooted in the Curriculum for Excellence, their unashamedly fun workshops engage, motivate and, crucially, challenge the children and young people they work with.
Situated in fictional worlds, their workshops offer opportunities to practise skills with numbers, shapes and concepts in exciting, imaginative and interactive ways.
Over half a million children and young people have taken part in their Creative Maths workshops to date!
Popular workshops include:
If it hadn’t been for the quick thinking of one of her teammates, Michaela Maths, one of Scotland’s most promising young sporting stars, would be dead – slain by an unseen hand! Pupils will need to use their mathematical skills to help the police solve the mystery.
CSI: Bake Off
All is not well in the world of the Bake Off – one of the judges, Saul Pinewood, has had food poisoning – and he knows it wasn’t an accident! Can pupils use their understanding of fractions, percentages and measurements to help him find the culprit?
The Trading Game
As Creatives high energy Trading Games provide students with opportunities to think about maths in some very different ways. Working in an ever-shifting environment, they’ll come to understand that value can be a concept that changes depending on circumstances, that the ability to prioritise is an essential mathematical skill, and that the properties of 2D shapes allow them to be arranged in a variety of ways.
Inspired by the work of Alan Turing and his fellow mathematicians at Bletchley Park during World War II, The Bunker is based in the writing and reading of codes. Working in teams, students need to identify as closely as possible the location of a Enemy Radio Transmitter by cracking a series of increasingly fiendish numeric, geometric and semiotic ciphers.
Big Maths Activity Days.
Big Maths Days allow up to 240 students to carousel around a number of maths workshops in the course of one day. Different configurations are available for differently sized schools, just ask and As Creatives would be delighted to design a Big Maths Day for you!
