Maths and road safety

The department's campaign #Mathstrainsbrains links parents to resources within the Everyday Maths hub, bringing new maths solutions, challenges, games and fun experiences into students’ homes.  

Parents and carers can explore everyday activities and support both their child’s mathematical skills and understandings, and have conversations that can reinforce being a safe road user.

Check out these activities where everyday conversations can occur in real-life situations and be a great way to discuss the importance of how to be a safe passenger, pedestrian, cyclist and future driver.
