Adults believe that the real world mathematics they can do in life and work is just ‘common sense’ the real world mathematics they can’t do is mathematics. Having Maths Eyes changes the view of mathematics as being something everyone just does in school. With “maths eyes,” people see the mathematics they do every day so mathematics becomes real and meaningful. It helps to build confidence in mathematics.
The Math Eyes website contains a variety of resources including posters, an activity guide and instructions on developing maths trails.
