Maths for the Wise

Foundation Phase Foot Parade


This activity allows students an opportunity to think creatively about numbers. Students use animals to model different ways to make a total by adding the number of feet in their parade. The activity includes animal cards to colour, cut, and paste.


For younger students, we have now added even bigger cards you can download below.

KS2 Maths Multiplication Matching Cards


In this activity we use the familiar structure of cards, but we have moved the emphasis to number sense and the understanding of multiplication without any time constraints. This activity encourages students to make connections between different representations of numbers and gain flexibility with multiplication. The cards are all laid out on a table and the student matches all the cards that represent the same number.

What’s Going On Outside Your Window Wat's Dyke?


This activity encourages students of all ages to take a deeper look at a familiar view: right outside their window. Students are asked to collect data on what they see and report it in a creative visual representation.


Pick a time window: It can be 5 minutes or all day long, and keep an eye out for what happens. Are people walking by? Birds hanging out? How many trees can you see? Find a way to visualize the information you collect. Maybe a timeline or a chart? Be your most creative self! Share your findings with us by using the hashtag #YoucubedAtHome on social media!

And I’m A Mathematician


Everyone is a mathematician! Make posters sharing the many aspects of your identity and add to it “And I’m a mathematician” – because we all are! You can see a couple of examples above for inspiration. Tweet us your posters @youcubed #YoucubedatHome!

Youcubed at Home


In these times of uncertainty, youcubed is here to help students at home continue to explore and learn maths in rich and creative ways. We are collecting here modified versions of our tasks to be more home-friendly, as well as some new explorations designed for learners at home.

Please help us distribute these to anyone who might use them and share your students’ work with our community using the hashtag #YoucubedAtHome in social media.
