I often get asked “When is Maths Week?” to which I respond, there isn’t an official, nationwide Maths Week. There is a World Maths Day, usually on the first Wednesday in March but no official Maths Week…. There IS a Science Week.
At the moment, schools celebrate their own maths week at a time that works for them, which I think is great, since I would only work one week a year otherwise! However, we should HAVE a National Maths Week, just like we have National Cake Week and National Storytelling Week
When do you think we could celebrate National Maths Week? When everyone is playing with shapes and numbers and seeing the maths in everything!
