'Play to learn'
Maths CLUBS

A series of free after school clubs where students learn Maths and problem solving by playing games.

The clubs are inspired by the latest research in Maths learning from Universities like Stanford and Cambridge as well as by the best Japanese pedagogues

1h after school club ran by two facilitators (Alice & Novella) where students will:

  • Practice mathematical thinking through games and visual tasks

  • Explore and discover the fun & beauty in Maths

  • Engage in "low floor high ceiling" tasks

  • Explore the big ideas in Maths

  • Work independently and collaboratively with others

  • Develop a Growth Mindset while unlocking confidence in their Maths abilities

What?

Cost?

The workshops are free
and accessible to any student that wants to take part!

When?

Workshops will start during summer term and will be one day per week

Where?

Location to be discussed with the school

For who?

Groups of 5-10 students from 4th and 5th grade

Exploring the big ideas in Maths:

Multidimensional thinking

Multidimensional thinking is about looking at Maths from different angles, connecting numbers, visuals, expressions. We want kids to experience Maths in various ways and to engage with it, unlocking their ability to reason outside of strict frameworks as well as rote approaches.

Number sense is the first step towards a good understanding in Maths.
we encourage kids to familiarise with this concept and to develop 
the ability to work with numbers, see what they are made of and to combine them in different ways. This includes
 composing and decomposing numbers, multidimensional operations, fractions, percentages, up to probability and statistics.

Number sense

Pattern seeking

Maths is all about finding patterns.
Patterns define several phenomenons
in the world around us and exist throughout nature. We lead kids to observe and understand them in the form of contextualised Maths puzzles and to use mathematical thinking to generalise and predict their growth, decay and overall transformation.

We reward process over results
We value questions over answers

It's more about the process (journey) then answer/solution (destination) Maths is about asking questions before finding answers.

ABOUT US

We are Novella and Alice, lifetime Friends and now cofounders. Our Passion is
helping the young ones discover the beauty and fun in Mathematics, and
develop self-confidence in doing any kind of Maths. We are currently
developing a video game to learn Maths and problem solving. In the
meantime, we’ve decided to bring creative and game based Maths to
students locally, here in London, as an after school club activity!
