FunMaths Roadshow

The FunMaths Roadshow is a collection of 350 bilingual mathematical activities suitable for use with school pupils between the ages of 5 and 15.

The Roadshow is an ongoing attempt to provide a brief experience of some elements of what practicing mathematicians do in real-life. These include:

  • problem solving
  • ideas exploration
  • discussion with colleagues
  • insight development
  • solution achievement
  • outcome interpretation

All this takes place in a non-confrontational and non-competitive setting both challenging and enjoyable.

How does it work?

The FunMaths Roadshow currently consists of 'boxes'.  Each box contains 25 mathematical activities which are set out on tables in a hall or large space. All participants need is a pen or pencil.

Students move around the room tackling the activities in any order they choose. In a typical session of 50 - 75 minutes, with pupils working in pairs, most will complete around 10 activities.
