Maths in the Museum

Maths in the Museum shares the excitement of maths in everyday life with children and young people through the Museum’s extraordinary collection of mathematical instruments which stretches back over at least a thousand years of history. 


This project will:

Develop a range of facilitated workshops linked to the maths curriculum in schools from Early Years to Key Stage 4 

Support maths learning in the classroom, particularly for those who find maths more challenging, with links to practical problem-solving such as in measurement, calculation, time telling and surveying 

Enhance maths learning for young people through kinaesthetic experiences such as object handling linked with history and storytelling, drama and music 
Create opportunities for all audiences to enjoy learning about maths through public events that engage with history and the Museum’s mathematical collections
