Your Big Number Natter resources

The Big Number Natter is the first ever nationwide conversation about numbers. It’s an opportunity to have a chat about numbers and change lives for the better. The story behind your lucky number, tips for bagging a bargain, calculations in your career or helping kids with homework…love it or loathe it, everyone has something to say about maths!

Whether you need ideas for quick conversation starters and helpful video examples, simple step-by-step sessions for the workplace or social media filters, you can use the resources below to get everyone in your organisation nattering about numbers.
