Magic Mathworks Travelling Circus

Experiencing Mathematics through Sight, Sound, Touch and Movement

Welcome to the Magic Mathworks website

Magic Mathworks is a travelling hands-on maths exhibition for schools, museums
and discovery centres. This touring maths lab demonstrates and explores a multisensory
approach to the learning of mathematics based on the Multiple Embodiment Principle
of Z P Dienes.

To find out more about our work

For the background to our two current exhibitions, the blue for secondary children and the purple set for primary and lower secondary children, choose Magic Mathworks exhibitions.

For a flavour of our work with younger children, take a Photo tour or a Video tour.

Investigate Masterclasses, which we offer at both primary and secondary level.

Following up a Circus visit

See Extension activities. Under Using the Circus you will find activities sorted by type – drawing, measuring, and so on. Heuristics submits our stations to a dozen problem-solving techniques. For a complete inventory of the stations comprising the blue set, consult Stations/Bestandsliste. Also listed here are hands-on maths ideas beyond those catered for in our current exhibitions. They take the form of downloadable .pdf files. Under the heading ‘Publications’ are notes accompanying articles which have appeared in print.
