Deputy First Minister’s Easter Holiday Maths Challenge

DFM EHMC

The Deputy First Minister’s Easter Holiday Maths Challenge has been designed in partnership with the Scottish Mathematical Council and is aimed at Primary 6 pupils for the Easter Holidays.

“It’s very much hoped that this will be a fun activity to promote maths outwith the classroom and ideally something that families can do together over the Easter holidays.  The initiative is a feature of the Making Maths Count approach to making Scotland a maths-positive nation, and of the Scottish Government’s commitment to promoting parental engagement in learning.”

EASTER THE GREAT EGG SCAPE 2018

Packs of the resources will be issued to schools for Primary 6 pupils this week. A few additional have been included and they hope that teachers might identify p5 and/or p7 families who would also engage with it.

Workings and solutions will be available here – www.blogs.gov.scot/making-maths-count/ – from Wednesday 4 April 2018.

The Scottish Government are encouraging schools and families to tweet images of the activity with the hashtag #eastermaths and based on this plan to choose a school that will help them to design the Summer Holiday Maths Challenge. It would be very exciting if this was a Highland school!
