Maths is a numbers game - at least it can be! This program shows how to encourage students to learn and develop their numeracy skills through fun and challenging activities. Activities are designed with a clear purpose, helping students to explore and think for themselves, share strategies, and gain understanding. Time to practise and discuss enables students to learn from each other and share their experiences. As students explore the activities, they develop stronger numeracy skills and methods to find solutions.
