New Maths in the Real World Resource Pack

SYW Resource Pack Header

For a few years now, we have been running an annual campaign called "Show Your Working" which aims to show that maths is everywhere and highlight the importance of maths in all careers - from athletes to artists, and from farmers to fire fighters. People from across different sectors were invited to share how they use maths in their jobs, with the examples being turned in to digital postcards.

We have created a new 'Show Your Working' resource pack that pulls together digital postcards, videos and blog posts that have been shared over the last four years of our ShowYourWorking campaign, highlighting the maths behind a variety of job across all sectors.
