Who would have thought . . .?

Maths lessons tend to be quite predictable. Follow the curriculum set way back at the start of the school year. Relevant or not! Helpful or not. Boring, or not.

But then . . . along comes some real-life event that interests everyone — yes, EVERYONE!

And what do Maths lessons do? Well, nothing new, usually.


You see, each week we write and email out Maths resources DIRECTLY RELATED TO REAL-LIFE HAPPENINGS. And not just current affairs! Often they are about the latest movie releases for children, or the latest pop tunes, or the top-of-the-ratings TV shows, or sporting heroes, or the weather, or . . . whatever!

Things that interest EVERYONE. But with a worded Maths question attached. Fun. Stimulating. Positive Maths!

You’ll never know how helpful these resources could be in YOUR CLASSROOM unless you try them out — FREE — and share them with your teaching colleagues, and chat about them in the Staffroom.

All we can do is encourage you to take a look at these worded maths problems.

Tens of thousands of students Australia-wide are using them each and every school week.

Could they help YOU and YOUR CLASS?

Please consider

And that’s what WE do, here at The Education Shop.

Make maths meaningful! (Just dig that alliteration!)

Primary Teachers, Shane Warne, Baked Beans & Maths. REALLY??

Who would have thought that Shane Warne’s baked beans habits would make a great Maths question for primary students?

But they did!

And they do!

Here it is . . . the BIG QUESTION . . .

“Aussie cricketer Shane Warne had 1,900 tins of baked beans flown in and addressed to him personally in India in 1998. (But they weren’t ALL just for him!) If each tin cost 80 cents, what was the total value of all those cans of baked beans?”

And there are HEAPS MORE topical, FUN maths questions where that one came from.

For an OBLIGATION-FREE 3-WEEK TRIAL SUBS., go to and ENJOY the fun, and the maths success, that we bring to that all-important subject — maths!

Go on, give it a go.
