Having Fun with Maths

This popular, hands-on workshop will enable participants to experience a variety of games and activities suitable for classroom use with a range of maths, numeracy, literacy and ESL students.  The activities focus on the development of core maths skills through approaches such as cooperative group work that also encourage the development of mathematical language, the use of real-life and hands-on materials, as well as having fun with maths. The maths content will focus on areas such as numbers, measurement, statistics and data, location and direction, and will illustrate alternative approaches to the traditional worksheet or textbook approach for teaching numeracy and maths. The activities have mainly been developed for youth and adult numeracy students but are suitable for all students, especially middle years and VET students.

Activities based on the resource, Having Fun with Maths: Activities and games for developing maths language and skills by Dave Tout, and published by Multifangled PL in 2007. Volume 2: Having More Fun with Maths: Activities and games for developing maths language and skills is due out soon.

$150 registration fee includes a copy of Having Fun with Maths: Activities and games for developing maths language and skills by Dave Tout, RRP $29.95
