Using art to teach maths * Using maths to create art

Home Page



This website has been designed to promote the teaching of mathematics in ways that are visually stimulating, for pupils of a wide range of abilities in Key Stages 3, 4 and even 5.

As a teacher in an 11-18 comprehensive school my objectives are to:

  • Increase pupils' self-esteem in mathematics lessons
  • Challenge preconceptions of what maths is
  • Explore the beauty of maths
  • Increase pupil motivation and enjoyment
  • Make connections between different areas of maths in a meaningful way
  • Make cross-curricular links
  • Develop pupils'independent learning skills

Not all pupils who are 'good at maths' like maths


This site is a collation of some of the inspiring ideas I have come across - I make few claims to originality and I welcome suggestions from other teachers...
