Fun in a Maths Class?

Maths is much more than boring equations full of numbers!

Mathematics is bursting with shapes, patterns, science, history, art, the list is goes on. so why do we just assume that maths is challenging sums?

Islamic art is a perfect example of how maths links with other subjects. As Eddie explained how angles and shapes fall into this art piece, i was enjoying the maths that i once hated! Everyone, no matter how young or old, are more engaged when they can physically make, play or colour-in. I believe this is a vital fact to remember when teaching a class a subject like maths, that can go one or two ways; enjoyable or fearful.

Geometry- if uni students found it enjoyable, primary kids will love it!
