Underground Mathematics

Many of our recent student features have involved resources from Underground Mathematics. Underground Mathematics provides creative resources that support teachers in the classroom. They help students build firm foundations for mathematical understanding by connecting ideas and developing techniques. The project is aimed at KS5 but there are many resources that could be tackled by students at KS4.

Its freely available site is at undergroundmathematics.org. Explore the site or access some of their resources by clicking on the titles below.
