*Please note Mathematical Magic is a cross between a workshop and a presentation for 80 students or fewer.
Most sessions we offer are designed to fill a one hour lesson time slot.
Sessions can be delivered as large group presentations or as smaller hands-on workshops (40 students or fewer).
Our sessions are mostly designed for age groups ranging from KS3 up to KS5, with a couple of options for broadly more able Year 5 and 6. The content can be adapted for all ability levels unless otherwise indicated in the literature.
Paper Folding and Problem Solving may be adapted for some higher ability Year 6 groups depending on teacher support and timings.
CPD and Other Audiences
Some Think Maths speakers can also deliver teacher CPD. Our CPD sessions cover enrichment material to complement the curricula that can be used to hook students and excite them about maths (rather than something more pedagogy focused).
The sessions give teachers a chance to explore the activities and ideas that they could use in their classroom and are also as much designed to get the teacher themselves excited about maths (an excitement they can bring back to their schools).
There’s a range of possible enrichment topics that could be included.
Whichever topic is chosen the session will also provide teachers with some electronic classroom resources that can used to implement some of the activities in classrooms.
Also, don’t forget about our free classroom resources here.
Think Maths can also deliver sessions for families at science festivals, and at evening events in schools.
