Active Maths uses PE and physical activity to raise achievement in maths. It helps to support progress and attainment across the whole school and raises aspirations to narrow the learning gap. Written in line with the maths curriculum, the Active Maths solutions available will help guide school staff to deliver engaging and innovative learning.
If your school is trying to engage students who don’t respond well to traditional teaching methods, the active learning principle uses physical activity in the classroom to support achievement in core subjects such as maths.
