-- How many of us can honestly say that we associate Maths with fun? Maths and fun are words that simply do not go together! Maths reminds most of us of hours spent trying to understand long multiplication, or a particularly nasty equation to be solved but maths, challenging as it is, can be fun. It’s the dull, abstract presentation and context that often makes students blood run cold when it comes to number challenges! Place a maths problem into an interesting or exciting context and suddenly it can appear relevant, and understandable and potentially rewarding. Footee, an online social gaming website for children aged 7 -13, makes learning fun, by placing each mathematical challenge into an exciting football themed electronic game This approach to education, via placing academic problem solving into an exciting video game world - is central to the Footee site. The children who play the games are not even necessarily aware that they are being educated, and therefore they show no reticence to get involved. It is the perfect scenario; they are having fun and learning at the same time!
So maths can be fun! It just requires specialists to integrate the learning process into an appealing rewarding, and safe interactive environment.
