Lego Based Maths Reviewed

This is a review of the potential of using lego to build a maths curriculum:

1. The use of simple blocks and models to create primary lessons

There is a huge room for use of Lego in the primary curriculum.  It needs structuring a nd codifying but I think it could be a real hit.  Here are some key examples.

  • Lego fractions
  • Lego ratios
  • volume and area calculations of cuboids
  • Sequences
  • multiplication tables built as quickly as possible

2.  The development of models to explore maths concepts

3. The use of robotics to enhance maths and learning

Our interest is to create a brilliant practical applied maths programme for teaching students who struggle with engaging in Maths. Our interests range from building bridges to making beautiful silver objects.
