  • to create a positive and can-do mentality towards Maths.
  • to change the culture of thinking around Mathematics.
  • to make real life connections. #MathsIsEverywhere 
  • to show the link Mathematics plays across all subjects
  • to share and celebrate the enjoyment of Numeracy / Mathematics.

 

 

“We firmly believe that if we tackle the ‘can’t do maths’ culture in our schools and communities with a challenging, consistent and persistent approach, we will improve the educational and employment outcomes for the young people of Liverpool “.
Judith Lang and Dave Carden - Liverpool Counts

 

What you can do to help:

  • Be aware of what you say about Maths, especially around children.
  • Challenge ANYONE that you hear making negative comments about Maths,
  • Any time you hear celebrities in the media saying that they ‘can’t do Maths’, or making negative comments about maths, discuss it with your children.
  • Share your own enjoyment of Maths and highlight when you have used it in everyday life.
  • Dispel the myth that there is a Maths gene and that only a few people can be good at Maths
