The LOVE MATHS concept was originated by Mark Robson and developed by staff at Westminster School, Adelaide. It has been further adapted by Dr Pauline Carter of the Mathematical Association of South Australia (MASA).
What is Love Maths?
It is a series of mathematical and numeracy related events designed to appeal across the secondary school and wider community. The aim is to create opportunities to experience success and enjoyment in a mathematical context. Love Maths aims to extend mathematics across the curriculum.
The aim is:
With differentiated activities to suit different abilities and ages
With fun, engaging and relevant activities
Including students, teachers, parents, non-teaching staff and school leadership
Teachers are busier than ever. Love Maths provides a resource of materials for specific events but also suggests how schools can take advantage of other Maths events that are scheduled in August.
MASA hopes you enjoy using this program and invites you to use all materials freely within your school.
If you find it a valuable resource, please let other teachers and schools know about LOVE MATHS and respect that it remains our intellectual property and encourage them to purchase this publication by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org .
