**Recommended Website:**

Motivate – maths enrichment for schools

**Age Range: 11-18 **(Grades 6-12, with parental supervision)

This archived site from the University of Cambridge presents downloadable multimedia explorations of **how math relates to real life issues such as nutrition, disease, vaccinations, and the economics of health**. The math topics covered include percentages, graphs, probability, equations, contingency tables, tree diagrams and much more!

When you get to the site you’ll see a description of what’s provided on the site. Click on the links under the title “Pack Topics” to get to the engaging math activities that answer questions such as:

- Is eating bacon sandwiches bad for you (or are the statistics misleading)?

- What are the odds that you test positive for something and the test is wrong?

- How do mathematical models make predictions about epidemics?

Explore these and other health-related questions from a mathematical perspective.

You can also do an in-depth study of “Babylonian Maths” that hone skills in number and place value, multiplication, division, inverses, shape, and symmetry.

If you still want more, click over to the “Cross-Curricular Resources” section to find **correlations between mathematics and art, geography, history, music, science, sports and more**. Some of the videos (VCs) in this section don’t work any more, but there are plenty of good suggested activities to stimulate learning over a wide variety of subjects.
