  • I like Active Maths because you get to play football.
  • It keeps your brain fit.
  • One thing I like about Active Maths is that its fun!
  • The stations are fun and it is a fun way of learning about maths.
  • The stations are about different things.

We started Active Maths when we were in primary four. Mrs Smith runs Active Maths. We like the independent stations because they are so much fun, where as the taught stations are more boring because you have a teacher there. Most people love independent groups.

Active Maths helps you learn better and is better than reading a textbook or just sitting at a desk.

We would recommend it to other schools!
