Maths on the go

On Friday 10 June at 7pm, Rob Eastaway will deliver a public lecture as part of our free lecture series. The talk is part of York Festival of Ideas and will explore how busy parents can engage in maths with their children.

Maths on the go

Maths on the go

When life is busy, it isn't always possible to sit down with your child and help them get to grips with important maths skills like multiplication, fractions and general problem solving.  In this lively talk, Rob offers a range of simple tips and games that you can try anywhere, any time.  Find out how to make the most of time spent in the car, at the shops, at the breakfast table and much, much more.

Tickets for the lecture are free and are available on our Eventbrite page. If you have any enquiries or accessibility requirements please telephone us on 01904 527315 or email

Please either print off your ticket or display it to us on your smartphone or tablet on the evening.
