Why not celebrate Maths Week Scotland 2023 (25th Sept - 1st Oct) with a high energy, imaginative and fun Creative Maths day for all pupils to take part in, then take a look at what's on offer from As Creatives. From sending Scotland’s first astronaut into orbit in The Race into Space to delving deep beneath the Earth’s surface in The Riddle of the Sphinx, each of our whole-school programmes supports this year’s theme of Maths in Motion.
All of our maths workshops for primary and secondary schools in Scotland have been carefully designed to put into context and actively promote the keystones of the Curriculum for Excellence – as well, of course, as supporting the push to Make Maths Count.
Tapping into pupils’ own creativity, our unashamedly fun workshops engage, motivate and, crucially, challenge the children and young people we work with.
