Developing Maths Eyes

The activities in this pack include going out and about, taking photographs, doing maths investigations, developing a Maths Trail, and keeping a Maths Diary. These activities will help individuals to recognise and appreciate the mathematics that surrounds them in their everyday lives. So, let’s start developing those Maths Eyes!

Creating Maths Problem Pictures and Posters

This guide offers step-by-step instructions and examples to help you identify interesting mathematical concepts, capture them in a photo, and develop questions that encourage problem-solving and mathematical thinking. Creating maths problem pictures and posters is an engaging and practical way to develop Maths Eyes mathematical thinking skills and promote real-life applications of maths.

Maths in Motion: How to Create and Use Maths Trails

Once individuals have started to use their “Maths Eyes”, Maths Trails are a great way to help everyone to develop their eyes further. A maths trail can be a journey or a walk where mathematics is explored in a real-world context such as a local park. The steps to developing a Maths Trail are outlined in this guide. Maths trails can be developed by individuals, families, communities or groups of learners.
