Using the outdoor space of Castlecomer Discovery Park, students work as part of a team to solve and understand a series of numerical problems. Guided in parts, students will explore mathematical topics in a real-life setting (e.g. basic numeracy, shapes, patterns, measurements, reasoning, geometry). This module aims to bring maths to life for students and to show how and where maths knowledge can be used in "real-life." This activity is accredited by Discover Primary Science and Maths.
