Abstract

Learning mathematics outside the classroom is not enrichment, it is at the core of empowering an individuals understanding of the subject.

The three activities described in this article can all be used outside the classroom in a maths lesson. Teaching mathematical concepts in this way engages and reinforces learning. It puts the ideas learnt into a setting and allows time for those ideas to be developed without any of the maths hang-ups which can occur in the classroom. By taking maths beyond the classroom, we can more clearly illustrate the connections between the real world and what they are studying in school. In so doing students and teachers alike are enthused by the wealth of resources they have all around them in their own environments.
