Whole School Mathematics Projects

This resource from SMILE contains eight projects to enrich students' experiences of mathematics.

The projects are:

Fair and unfair games - applying ideas of probability

Fractals - investigating area, perimeter, ratio and the concept of infinity

Mappings - exploring the connections between number, algebra and graphs

Mathemagic - number tricks leading to algebraic proof

Modular codes - long division, investigating modular arithmetic

Problem solving - in a competitive team context

Quadrilaterals and triangles - geometric properties with an emphasis on justification

What's on TV - testing hypothesis by collecting and presenting data.

Each project:

  • focuses on mathematical process
  • stresses the importance of justification and proof
  • encourages mathematical discussion
  • fosters the development of mathematical vocabulary and incorporates whole class teaching, collaborative group work and a plenary session
