Maths Meets Art

Here are some numbers


When we think about maths we also think about numbers.

When children are learning basic maths, that is a great time to give them positive associations to numbers.

Look at these numbers. Here are some examples of colourful number by Tracy McGuinness-Kelly, author of the brilliant ‘Bad Cat Books’.

This is where maths meet art. Encourage your children to colour and decorate their own numbers. By using artistic ability they will be creating new associations with numbers using their whole brain.

Encourage your children to create bright, colourful, creative and unique numbers. Have fun. The numbers don’t have to be works of art, just numbers which you would call art.

Provided below is a template of all the numbers together.

Building on this we have created a unique way to remember the basic additions and subtractions.
