A visit to
the Museum can offer an important opportunity for developing Investigative
Mathematics. Mathematics is embedded deeply in all of our buildings. Usually
deliberately, but often unconsciously, people in the past used the
wide-ranging skills of mathematics, number and algebra, shape, space and
measures, to provide for their comfort, enjoyment and to show their status
attracts large numbers of visitors and data produced from these numbers can
in itself be a structure of enquiry and investigation. Please contact the
Schools Services Manager to discuss this type of activity.
provides valuable contexts for using and applying mathematics and situations
where children can see the need to gain new skills back in the classroom. Children need to be given the opportunity to select and use the appropriate
skills in response to an enquiry, to collect data and to present the results
of their investigation in a variety of ways.
must therefore include deciding what questions will structure the enquiry,
and ensuring the children have the necessary skills.
