    As part of our INSET day today, we spent some time within our department looking over some OFSTED criteria and trying to determine whereabouts we, as a department were at.

    One of the areas we all agreed we were coming up short on was offering extra-curricular activities to pupils. Even after throwing a few ideas around we couldn't come up with anything particularly inspiring or concrete - can anyone give examples of what they do or offer here?

    Thanks loads...

    Cipher Challenge?
    Maths Club?

  4. In addition to DM's ideas you could team up with colleagues from other faculties for a STEM club.

    The ideas offer so far are all great, but on the more fun side (for those who feel a bit intimidated by maths) what about something on fractals, origami, constructing mathematical objects, and the kind of stuff you find in Cundy and Rollett. Oh, (and not my idea) if its after school I've heard that ordering in pizza at the same time goes down really well - honestly.
     
  6. we do at least 3 of these- but, to repeat dm's opening q
    what age and stage?

    I've been thinking of writing a Maths book with some form sixers for the extra murals.
