Maths Clubs

A good Maths Club gives pupils the opportunity to experience maths outside the normal classroom environment, and should make maths engaging and enjoyable. The club should raise the profile of maths in school and support your pupils to: Improve their subject knowledge, Improve their attitudes to maths and Increase self-confidence.

Following a three year project involving 26 primary schools across London looking into best practice, we have created this practical Toolkit to help you and your pupils get the most out of your Maths Club. It contains all the information and resources you need to start your own Maths Club in your primary school, including downloadable activity guides, worksheets, videos and case studies.

The PMC from the Mathematical Association

The FMC has been created for all your pupils. It is our intention that mathematics is portrayed as enjoyable, exciting and engaging for younger pupils and the FMC should provide an entertaining yet educational ending to the school year.

The challenge paper will include 20 multiple choice questions. Children will start with easy questions to encourage pupils in their own ability and gradually get harder throughout the paper. Pupils will have 45 minutes to complete the paper. They can use as much scrap paper as they wish but no calculators, rulers or other aids may be used. The paper will encourage your pupils to think outside the box and approach questions in a logical manner.

Key Stage: 2 (Years 3 and 4)

London Underground Activity

The map of the London Underground has always been of interest to mathematicians.

The map does not show a scaled down version of the underground rail network but does show how to travel between stations.

Some of the questions are based on the actual railway system, others use the map as a basis for puzzles that develop mathematical thinking.
