Helping pupils become #positiveaboutnumbers

Addressing maths anxiety as a barrier to learning

We understand that maths anxiety can be a real concern for teachers, parents and children, which is why we are committed to finding ways to make everyone feel more positive about numbers.

To help you and your school combat maths anxiety, we’ve gathered advice and tips from our publishers, professional development leads, and are hosting three Hackathons at Numicon and Inspire Maths Advocate Schools. Hackathons are a great way of bringing together specialists from a particular sector to come up with creative solutions to a specific problem. You can find out more and book your place below.
