Famous Mathematicians
These two files describe a task whereby pupils investigate the lives of various mathematicians, and create a poster/booklet to show what they have found. For many mathematicians, their work will be too advanced for KS3/4 pupils, so the emphasis is on finding out about the person. Pupils could also investigate maths in sport, the history of pi or prime numbers.
