Timings

Most sessions we offer are designed to fill a one hour lesson time slot.

Group Sizes

Sessions can be delivered as large group presentations or as smaller hands-on workshops (40 students or fewer). 

Age Groups

Our sessions are designed for age groups ranging from KS3 up to KS5. The content can be adapted for all ability levels unless otherwise indicated in the literature. Mathematical Magic and Shapes and Smoke Rings can be adapted for Year 6.

Other Audiences

Think Maths can also deliver teacher CPD*. Our session ‘Engaging Enrichment in the Classroom’ covers a variety of enrichment topics, and can be adapted to suit a theme. It includes interactive enrichment activities that can be used in the classroom and suggests further places where enrichment ideas can be found. Get in touch with us to find out what topics could be included.

Many of the sessions listed for students can also be adapted as a CPD session, and a teacher 'team building' CPD can be delivered. Also, don't forget about our free classroom resources here

Think Maths have also delivered at science festivals and community events in the past.
