Maths Improvisation (Upper Key Stage 2)

A fun look at how Maths is involved in every area of our lives. Pupils fill in slips, completing the questions ‘What is the Maths of...?’ or ‘How can Maths help me to...?’, and the presenter attempts to answer these in an informative yet humorous way. Ideal as an end-of-day session.
