Making the numeracy strategy enjoyable

New ways of making the numeracy strategy enjoyable and workable are always welcome. The Milk Maths Challenge traces the route of dairy products from cow to child while offering a range of questions for primary pupils. Fields, milking parlours and tankers, cheese and butter factories, depots and delivery vans provide the contexts; calculations, fractions, percetages, weights and capacities, speeds, distances, clocks and temperatures provide the problems. A table of appropriate vocabulary and learning objectives supplement the cheerful "cowculations".

The Milk Maths Challenge is free from the National Dairy Council, 5-7 John Princes Street, London W1G 0JW. Tel: 020 7499 7822. Email:
