Maths and Mum

What does a maths workshop entail? Well as a recent attendee of a “maths workshop” what I discovered was not as I expected. I had been asked as a family member to attend a Saturday workshop at my nieces Primary School. As an accountant I had been nominated by my sister whose daughter I was supervising, basically,  because she had always disliked maths. In fact I believe she has always been scared of maths. It was a shame because it would have been a great experience for her as the type of activities were not sitting crunching numbers more hand on large puzzles that people were solving in groups. Their was a buzz in the air and people were having fun whilst participating in maths. Next time,  although I thoroughly enjoyed the day with my niece I shall make my sister go as she may surprise herself and her enthusiasm for maths workshops and the activities they provide.
