Hello and welcome to the first edition of the Maths at Home Newsletter.
In response to the Covid-19 situation Maths Week Ireland are making resources available for pupils that are at home during the school closures. We will have daily activities that teachers can share with their pupils and activities that parents/ guardians can easily manage. Parents/guardians feel very pressured that they have to act like a professional teacher and these activities are designed to relieve that pressure.
The MathsWeek team are continuing to work remotely and we will produce this newsletter every Monday for the duration of school closures. If you have any feedback on how we can support education during this difficult time please let us know. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through social media.
These resources will be available on our website www.mathsweek.ie and offer a fun way for students to engage with each other while also practicing mathematical proficiency. They should also be of interest to adults and parents. These recreational maths activities are a great way to keep the brain sharp, learn and have fun.
