Mathematics Task Centre

Hands-on Problem Solving

Tasks invite students to work like a mathematician.

Use the links below to explore the wisdom of practice collected here from more than 40 years of using tasks in classrooms around the world. Tasks are designed for Years 2-10.

In Sweden, Maths Tasks are called Mattegömmor...
a place where mathematics is hidden.

It is really amazing how the tasks are a never ending learning experience. Each year, through my students, I am getting to know more and more of 100+ tasks I have. My students really enjoy the exploration experience ... and I am getting very comfortable with that part of the three lives of the task!

Isn't it wonderful how you can do the tasks class after class & always wind up in a different place or just go so much further in a short time ... I love it!!!!!
