In a series of workshops to promote enthusiasm for maths within the school, a class of children aged 8-9 years old created Mad About Maths, a CDROM of 8 maths games, which encouraged them to test their ideas, use their own words, and try new approaches. The games were presented in a school event in which the pupils demonstrated the games to their family members and teachers. The pupils were able to share their learning and knowledge of calculation with their siblings and families in an engaging and fun way.
The CDRoms continue to be used in the home and in school with other classes to support enthusiasm and skills in maths.
