Further Information

If you require any help in making MathsAlive! at home or in the classroom we have produced a series of handy guides that explore the world of maths around us. These are free to download by selecting one of the links below:

  • Family Guidebook : The activities in this family guide are designed for parents with
    children in primary and secondary school (ages 7–14). We’ve also added a few suggestions so that their little brother or sister can join in and an Expert Challenge for the real maths lovers. Each activity relates to an area of the MathsAlive! exhibition.

    If you're worried because maths wasn’t your strongest subject at school, don’t be. These activities are fun, easy and hands on. You’ll only need simple, inexpensive supplies – things that you probably already have around your home.

    We’ve written and illustrated the activities so that you can hand this guide over to your
    kids and they can work things out.

  • Teachers' Reference Guide : This guide is designed as a resource for teachers who are
    interested in more information about what specific mathematics concepts are explored in
    the exhibition, and how they are presented.

    It is designed to help with planning a school trip, allowing you to identify relevant maths in advance of your visit, so that students can get the most out of the experience based on what they are currently learning. It will also help when encouraging students to experience the exhibition with their families, allowing you to suggest specific “don’t miss” exhibits and activities.
  • Teachers' Activity Guide : The activities in this Teacher’s Activity Guide can be used before
    or after your visit to the Exhibition. They are designed for teachers, community group leaders and museum educators who work with students at the end of primary school and start of secondary school. The Guide is organised into six sections that match the theme areas of the Exhibition: Adventure Sports, Environment, Style/Design, Entertainment, Gaming and Robots/Space.
