Confidence through creativity
At Maths on Toast we want everyone to be able to feel positive about maths and it is our mission to show families how fun, creative and enjoyable maths can be. We believe that creating enjoyable, playful experiences and memories of doing maths together helps to foster a positive can-do attitude towards maths and builds the confidence to tackle any mathematical challenges that may arise.
A creative maths approach demonstrates the huge variety of maths that exists and reveals the fact that maths is everywhere in our day to day life. It gives the chance to explore and investigate mathematical concepts in a playful, non-pressured way. Fancy some games, puzzles, construction, craft, patterns or nature exploration? Then creative maths is for you!
We created our Maths on Toast Bites films to give families and communities a taste of creative maths activities that can be easily tried out at home.
Each film shows a short ‘how-to’ activity demonstrated by children – there’s a construction challenge, shape-building, you can make and decorate a hexaflexagon (a hexa-what-agon?) or check out some simple dice games. You can find the films on our website along with other useful resources:
