Welcome to MathsAlive! To support you in planning a field trip or bringing MathsAlive! into your classroom, a range or materials and resources are available to help.

  • Teacher’s Activity Guide: this guide is designed to be downloaded and can be printed by activity or in its entirety. Click here.

    The activities in the Teacher’s Activity Guide can be used before or after your visit to the exhibit. They are designed for teachers as well as community group leaders and museum educators who work with students at the end of primary school and start of secondary school. The Guide is organised into six sections that match the theme areas of the exhibit: Adventure Sports, Environment, Style/Design, Entertainment, Games and Robots/Space.

    The activities take an inquisitive approach to learning and have the flexibility to be adapted to younger and older students. They are written with a casual style, addressing students directly, requiring only supplies that are easy and inexpensive to obtain. A chart is included to show the links between the activities, the maths content and the related component from the “Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.” Also included is a brief overview of the exhibit itself to prepare for your visit and support your follow-up activities.
