MAKE IT COUNT - ACTIVE LEARNING IN MATHS AT FLEETWOOD

Maths has come to life at Fleetwood High School as students have recently benefitted from active learning sessions which aim to take Maths out of the classroom and show its real-life relevance and importance in today’s society.
One hundred and eighty GCSE students at the high school recently took part in a revision workshop run by Living Learning Interactive Theatre Workshops. The session not only involved students in highly entertaining drama, but also challenged them to solve mathematical problems in a real-life scenario. All skills covered in the interactive play were relevant to those required to attain a good grade in GCSE Maths, and included such mathematical topics as Fibonacci, trigonometry, algebra and finding the area of a circle.
Younger students’ have also enjoyed some interactive Maths. High achieving Year 8 and 9 students were motivated and challenged in a problem solving “hands on” workshop, run by the school’s guest Angela Goulding, an associate of Kings College London. This workshop involved a variety of active Maths, including students making pyramids in order to solve a mathematical problem they had been challenged with.
