What better way to enhance your students’ interdisciplinary skills than with a games day?

A Maths Games Day is an opportunity for students to:

  • develop their mathematical talents and thinking skills in a setting where maths is regarded as fun and worthwhile
  • work with like-minded students from a diverse range of schools
  • participate in mathematical activities without the usual class room pressures
  • win prizes and rewards
  • get excited about maths!

Maths Games Days are a very effective vehicle for getting young people – particularly in the middle years of schooling – enthused about maths. Problem solving and mathematical games address the Victorian Curriculum proficiency strands.

Teams of 4 students (maximum 2 teams per school) compete for a variety of prizes including individual prizes for creativity, contribution to group work, and lucky door prizes. The participants are drawn from those who have a keen interest in mathematics and who can operate as a team. Lateral thinking wins the day.

Teachers also have an opportunity to meet colleagues from other schools, attend a professional learning activity and to inspect displays of teaching resources.

Maths Games Days are organised and run by host schools and supported by the MAV.

Cost per team:
