Schools can win crazy World Maths Day lesson at golf centre

It’s back! Hastings Adventure Golf has launched its 2019 schools competition to celebrate World Maths Day.

Aimed at both primary and secondary schools and with the support of East Sussex County Council’s lead member for education, the crazy golf complex is offering schools the chance to win a fully prepared practical maths lesson for an entire class at the crazy golf attraction.

Kate Richards, former maths teacher and manager of Hastings Adventure Golf, said: “I know from experience that demonstrating maths in a practical way is often the key to pupils’ learning success.

“So once again we are giving schools the chance to win this immersive and fun learning opportunity. It’s also a ready made, planned lesson – so teachers won’t have any prep work.”

“Maths knowledge is a vital skill and finding new ways to involve pupils in the practical applications of the subject is very much welcomed.

“I am pleased to support Hastings Adventure Golf’s innovative learning platform for World Maths Day. It gives more pupils across the county a chance to play and learn maths in a very creative way.”

A range of maths lessons for primary and secondary curriculums complete with worksheets and key learning points have been developed to turn the game of crazy golf into a practical maths learning experience.

Areas of the curriculum covered include, geometry, basic operations, fractions and percentages, measurement and distance.

This the second year that the crazy golf complex in Hastings has run the World Maths Day competition.
