About Inquiring Maths

Inquiring Maths is a new, Cambridge -based pilot project designed to introduce statistical concepts and understanding to Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) children through fun, inquiry-based learning. The resources encourage questioning and discussion, allowing learners to experience practical applications of statistics, including reasons why they are both loved and derided.

You’ll receive a ‘ready to teach’ pack, featuring ten Inquiring Maths sessions. Your pupils will increase in confidence as they come up with ways of helping the fictional Galileo class with data and statistics topics, including:

  • Estimation
  • Patterns and sequences
  • Probability and data

While the materials are linked to the UK KS2 curriculum, Inquiring Maths is applicable in many different school settings and countries because of its focus on exploring concepts through classroom talk and discussion:

  • Encouraging talk around mathematics
  • Challenging the popular myths that surround maths
  • Emphasising the importance of asking the right questions
  • Validity of data sources

    Register now for access to the materials – there’s no cost or obligation! And, you’ll be supporting research at the University of Cambridge.
