Maths Investigations - Learning is Awesome!

Encourage your children to investigate and to take time to think & talk about Maths, and they will come to understand it. Make it fun, and they will love it!

The activities and guidance on this web site will help you to do both...

Here's what the kids say...

I think that maths investigations is amazing and everybody should be on it

It's so interesting to see that a teacher could make such an awesome website and I would like to make something like this. I really enjoy playing and learning on this website.

Activities for Tablets - Children eager to learn maths, in school or at home!

If you want a supplementary Maths programme for home and school learning, with differentiated practical activities that both encourage thinking & investigation and consolidate core skills, take a look at our tablet-based learning programme for early number skills development. Children love it, teachers love it and parents love it!

Here's why...

The children's materials are colourful and captivating - so much so that the kids are clamouring to use them before and after school and at weekends as well as during lessons!

The differentiated programme makes it easy for teachers to give targeted skills practice to less confident children while allowing more capable pupils to stretch and challenge themselves.

There is full guidance for parents so that you can reinforce learning at home.

Driving it all is a passionate belief that, if children are given the scope to explore and investigate numbers within a carefully structured framework, they will come to love Maths and really understand how it works.

Welcome to Maths Investigations!

If you'd like to bring Maths alive in your school, or get your children enthused at home, you can sign up for a full years access here.
