Fun Maths
Students work in pairs/threes to solve different maths puzzles that challenge them to use mathematical reasoning, number facility, deductive reasoning, reading comprehension and critical thinking - all while having fun and working in a team.

Curriculum Topics: Number, Measurement, Geometry, Statistics
Years 3-9
How the day works?
The challenge is held over 1.5 hours and accommodates up to 60 students at a time. Students work at their own pace in groups of three self selecting from a range of mathematical tasks that are graded to cater for all abilities. SATRO bring age appropriate puzzles and set them up on tables in a hall. Students will then have the opportunity to complete as many puzzles as they are able. The sessions will be adapted to work within your timetable. 

 In Years 7-9 this workshop is often aimed at lower sets and SEN groups.
