Maths Snack Videos
ATM experts share ideas through Maths Snacks videos, supporting children whether they are in school or at home.
The videos are a mix of tasks, puzzles, challenges and games; selected to support and enrich mathematics taught at school.
Many videos can be accessed by very young children, with a little bit of adult support, and all are relevant to pupils across the school age range. There’s hardly ever a single right answer and there are many ways of working on tasks.
The videos are designed to entice and to focus on working in the ways mathematicians do; such as exploring situations, looking for patterns and rules, asking questions and seeking answers, and trying out and testing ideas.
