Maths on Toast’s Join-In projects and galleries offer everyone – families at home, community groups, libraries and schools – the opportunity to take part in collaborative, imaginative hands-on maths.
There are 3 key Join-In moments in the Maths on Toast calendar, with a project launching each spring, summer and autumn. The galleries stay open and you can send in your creations at any time.
How do I take part?
All you need – resources, templates, instructions and videos for each season’s Join-In project – are available for free on our website. Simply take part and create – then send us a picture to feature in our online gallery!
Parents and families – take part at home and tell your friends and family!
Schools / Home Educators – take part and create at school or print the resources out and send home for families to join in. Or why not invite parents and carers to take part in a session at school?
Community groups and libraries – run a session in your venue or print our resources for families to take home.
Example Text to share with families
We are taking part in Maths on Toast Join-In Project – Terrific Tangrams. This is a great way for families to engage with their children’s maths learning in a fun and hands-on way. Please do take a look at all the resources and see if you can create some Tangram pictures (maybe over the Easter holidays) and share them with us and online at @mathsontoast
We love seeing the creative maths you do at home. Share a picture of your work and we will add it to one of our online galleries!
To be included in the gallery, email a picture of your work (with you if you like!) to email@example.com and tell us which gallery it is for. You can be anonymous, give us your child’s first name and/or age or tell us your school class maybe – it’s up to you.
You could also post it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, tagging us @mathsontoast
And don’t forget to share and spread the word – we want everyone to Join-In!
Join-In projects are a great way to enjoy doing maths together as a family or group, building a positive attitude to maths and exploring mathematical ideas at your own pace and in your own way. Why is this a good idea? Find out more about the 5 Key Principles of the Maths on Toast creative maths approach.
