Maths – D – Using and Applying Number


Coming soon!

This section is designed to help children apply and refine the ideas they have learned so far. Each investigation requires children to use number to plan and justify their decisions in real-life scenarios.

This “flat pack” has 5 extended mentor-led investigations into how to use and apply mathematics to projects from designing a herb garden to producing a newspaper. With these investigations come 15 supporting sets of videos, lesson plans and ideas to help your children learn the fundamentals of using and applying number.

You can download individual maths plans and videos for free here.

Alternatively, you can download this together with the other maths flat-packs here
