What we do

What we do

We’re the family maths charity!

We’re on a mission to give all families and communities creative, human and social experiences of maths – we want everyone in the UK to feel positive about maths.

Thanks to our funders, we’re able to achieve this with our three main areas of work

  1. Community Maths in Schools
  2. Family Maths at Home
  3. Community Events in Public Spaces

Community Maths in Schools

We enable teachers to give the children they teach positive family maths experiences by supporting parents to get involved with their children’s maths learning. For example, with our Festival of Triangles community maths event!

This is significant as almost every family has a connection with a state primary school and they are an essential means of reaching families we would be otherwise unable to communicate with.

Family Maths at Home

We want parents to be able to create positive maths experiences at home, one way is with our Number Rumbler game which we developed in 2014 in collaboration with families. It’s designed to be first and foremost a fun game to learn multiplication and division facts, and it can be played in lots of different ways. We also offer resources and advice on how to have fun family maths at home.

Community Events in Public Spaces

As a community charity, we’re really keen to spread the positive maths love far and wide, not just in schools or homes. So far, we’ve collaborated with museums, heritage sites, and theatre companies as well as libraries, festivals and even farms to bring our activities and message to an audience of families who may not specifically be looking for maths.

How we’re funded

We’re funded by a mixture of grant income, trading income and donations from members of the public.
