Maths on Toast
Maths on Toast is a charity that runs family and community maths events, developing activities that make maths creative and social.
Opportunities for families to support maths out of school
- Maths Mash-up – free family maths event at Pancras Square Library, just by St Pancras Station. On the second Saturday of every month, between 2-5pm, families can drop in and try out creative, crafty activities that are also full of maths. Flyer attached!
- Number Rumbler – a new game developed by Maths on Toast and a finalist in the 2016 Science Toy Award. The game was developed in response to requests to make times tables more enjoyable. It supports ‘number sense’ – a deeper understanding of number. Flyer attached! The game is available for £7 – more info via www.mathsontoast.org.uk/all-about-number-rumbler
Parental engagement with maths – workshops available
Schools in Camden, Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea or Brent might be interested in an opportunity for Maths on Toast to deliver a free workshop in their school, for parents/families.
