World Maths Day Assembly for Key Stage 2 - Problem Solving / Number

A brilliant SMARTBoard file to launch a Maths Day / Maths Week at school.

The presentation looks at the wonder of numbers and engages children with questions such as 'Were numbers discovered or invented?' and looks at 'number trickery' where real life situation are explore through photographs of supermarket offers and parking tariffs that don't actually provide the special offers that they suggest they do. A clip from Young Apprentice is also shown to demonstrate the importance of basic maths calculation skills as one of the teams cannot work out the cost of their overheads.

Engaging and inspiring curiosity, this assembly has been made with Key Stage 2 in mind but can be utilised as a whole school assembly also.

Also available is a Key Stage 1 assembly that is to be used in conjunction with this Key Stage 2 assembly looking at maths problem solving through storytelling.

*PLEASE NOTE* As SMARTBoard files do not generate a preview, I have added a very brief preview of slides (as clipart) to demonstarte the quality of the resource.
