Event description



The key aim of #SmashedMath is to help children succeed in mathematical learning through colourful fun and play, a new set of eyes and a whole bunch of methods that math geniuses routinely use in their heads! but are not taught in schools.

Interactive, colourful, noisy and fun is the name of the game with #SmashedMath

For 9-17 year olds

What is #SmashedMath?
#SmashedMath is a free, social learning group for young people. Anyone aged between nine to seventeen can attend to learn mathematics in an informal, non-school, non-curriculum, creative, and social environment.

#SmashedMath is particularly keen to support children from low-income and unwaged households to succeed in learning mathematics.

#SmashedMath believes that a sound understanding and working knowledge of mathematics is crucially important now more than ever before to support and enhance our modern lives.

From personal banking and family budgeting to making major purchasing decisions through to computer programming and coding and advanced security and encryption systems to all aspects of STEAM (Science, Techology, Engineering, Arts, Maths) through to music, design and the arts through to theoretical maths..... the possibilities are almost literally infinite, #SmashedMath believes that it’s both better and easier to learn solid math skills earlier rather than later!

The initial five week, November 2017, program of #SmashedMath is an unfunded volunteer-led pilot to determine ongoing interest in running it as a social learning group for kids on a regular basis in 2018.

#SmashedMath embraces the values and principles of social inclusion and validation, social and cultural diversity and equality for people of all abilities.

What #SmashedMath is NOT
#SmashedMath is not a homework help group.

#SmashedMath is a group to help kids who have difficulty with or indeed have learned to hate mathematics. We aim to help kids to open up their mathematical creativity and discover or rediscover a love of learning maths.

One common-thread complaint about many of the commercialised tutoring systems is that the child in need of help "getting" mathematics is still handed the same old same old worksheets and book work type exercises and expected to rote learn without any motivation to experience the joy that mathematics actually embodies.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion

obtains no hold on the mind. ~ Plato

Knowledge is that which benefits,

not that which is memorised. ~ Imam ash-Shafi'i

Inspired by the need to support our sons to smash the math, we are running #SmashedMath as a not for profit, social education program to support children learning mathematics.

#SmashedMath : we want to totally smash the math and help other kids to do it too.
