Numbers can be Fun – Honest!

A day of fun and games, challenges and puzzles, designed to build your skills, confidence and application when working with numbers and the important functions in maths.
Learn to co-operate with others as well as work on your own to find the solutions, through a whole range of tasks, hands-on puzzles and challenges which will boost your mathematical skills.
Not a text book in sight! You will be amazed how new skills will develop which will make you an even better 'maths practitioner'.
You will soon be able to design your own maths games and puzzles and challenge the rest of the group to solve them: 2D or 3D, it's up to you.
Challenge yourself to learn more about number, shape, time, dimension, even simple algebra. The sky's the limit. Let the fun begin!
