Hi there - I am new to forums so please be gentle!

Hi there, I am EmilyW, an ex primary school teacher and big fan of teaching maths! I now work for a charity promoting numeracy skills in schools. I am always looking for interesting ways to engage children in maths - so if you have any ideas I would love to hear from you. EmilyW

Hi Emily, and welcome.

Sounds like a great charity!

Re: Hi there - I am new to forums so please be gentle!

Nice to meet you!

I am always keen to chat to people who love maths as much as I do. I had a chat with someone last week who was telling me about their own new project aimed at raising the profile and enjoyment of numeracy in schools.

The project is based on using story telling to engage children in maths. Children are asked to help solve a mystery (ie the mystery of the missing cow Buttercup!) and they use maths to work out what has happened to Buttercup and discover some new characters along the way!  The children solve number problems in order to progress in the story.

This was new to me, but it sounded brilliant!

Hi EmilyW;

Welcome to the forum! Why not post there questions right here. Everyone and I will give them all the interesting solutions they will ever want to see.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Hi Bobbym,

Good to meet you. I will give them a ring and see if they would like to join this forum too. Is anyone getting involved in World Maths Day this year on the 3rd March?

Hi EmilyW;

I was born ready. Got that phrase from a very bad movie.

Anyways, once while driving, i came upon this SignBoard which said "Be Gentle on Curves..." and i still don't get if that's a Parabolic/Hyperbolic/Alcoholic Curve or ... ??  dunno:

Hi S.G Shredmaster!
I meant to say that "Other Forums MAY be Rude but Our Forum is NOT BY ANY CHANCE!"
I see how my reply made the other sense however... sad   smile

Hi ashleylobo;

Welcome to the forum! We do math, and play games and post interesting ideas. I don't do any of that, too boring. But that is the point of the forum.
