Exploring creative practice in maths and creativity

Coles, A and Hay, P (2013) Exploring creative practice in maths and creativity. In: Tackling Underachievement Through Ceativity in Primary Mathematics, 27th November 2013, Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution.

Abstract

The first line of the new national curriculum states: “Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected subject”. This event is a chance to engage actively in some of the work of a research project that, for the last three years, has been tackling underachievement in primary mathematics through a focus on creativity. The project is a collaboration between the University of Bristol and 5x5x5=creativity. We have had some striking successes with our research together and in this session we will share what we have learnt. We will offer our thoughts on how and why students can get engaged through creative processes in mathematics, show how these need not be in conflict with curriculum coverage and can in fact help with the need to work on complex ideas with young children. Participants will engage in one or more of the activities from the project, we will look at some students' work, hear the teachers’ stories and open up a discussion of issues raised.
