Maths Week Scotland is upon us again – it’s always a great week and the events, resources and opportunities available during this week seem to get better and better each year.
For a full run down of the events, activities and resources go to the Maths Week Scotland website.
There are a whole host of events taking place online both within school hours and after that you can access as a class or pupils could access individually. Click on the Events section of the website to find out more.
I’ve already heard lots of schools planning what they will be doing throughout the week… and beyond! If you’re taking part, don’t forget to pin your school to the Maths Week Scotland map.
If you’re in Highland and you teach pupils working at Second Level, remember that all Highland schools were given an Outdoor Maths Kit by the Science Skills Academy last year. These should still be in your school and just as relevant now as they were last year. The recordings of the training delivered for these can be found here.
Education Scotland have put together this Sway to help you navigate the range of events happening. You can access it here.
Finally, as a keen photographer myself, I wanted to highlight the Maths Inside photo competition. This is open to both pupils and adults and the idea is to see the Maths Inside. Entries need to be submitted by October 1st! Take a look at the video below to find out more.
Have a great week and I look forward to seeing what people are up to around Highland and beyond.
