The Maths Zone at Education Interactive is a specialist maths games and puzzles shop and maths education consultancy. If you are a teacher, student or a fan of maths generally, you will be amazed at the range of games, puzzles, books, posters, calculators, and more that we stock. We are passionate about using games to enrich learning and have hand-picked all of our games very carefully.
The business is run by Chris Olley, who has been working in maths education as a teacher, author, advisor and teacher trainer for over 25 years. While not at the shop, Chris is director of the secondary maths teacher training course (PGCE) at King's College, London. Val Johnson is the manager of the retail business. Val is a primary school specialist, with a background in equalites and language issues in education. Val worked for many years as a teacher and in local authority advisory teams, in the UK and East Africa.
Both Chris and Val can be booked to run sessions in schools, local authorities or any level of audience. Please ring to have a chat about your ideas. You can be sure of a wealth of experience in the response.
The principal products that we design and produce ourselves are our exciting range of financial literacy and enterprise games; the maths-for-a-day box, which came from Chris's work with Maths Year 2000; the gifted and talented maths boxes - Illuminate and Wondermaths and the data handling activities books, called 'The Data book' (also available in Welsh).
We would be very happy to set up training and support, come and demonstrate any of these or discuss personalising them to your needs. Alternatively, why not hold a staff meeting at our shop - just ring to book in a slot and bring your colleagues and have fun playing and choosing maths games and puzzles to use in your school to enrich learning in maths.
We look forward to working with schools and families across the country - and beyond.
