The problem with numeracy

Mathematics is like Marmite - some of us wince at the very thought of it and some of us can't get enough of the stuff! However, mathematics is 'the most fun you can have at primary level' – when you go about it the right way. From 'Skittle Sharks' to 'The Functionator', this training aims to provide any nervous, reluctant, inexperienced teacher with ideas and the confidence boost to kick start their mathematical creativity. Leave those negative thoughts at the door and Nick will help you find a new enthusiasm for maths that you'll be bursting to pass on to the children you teach
