New resources from youcubed!
This is one of those newsletters I really enjoy as we have new and exciting things to tell you about. Thank you to all of you who used some of our Week of Inspirational Math materials, they were downloaded one quarter of a million times! so we know they were used far and wide, which is wonderful.
First, we have made a new video for students. It is 8.5 minutes long and it shares the messages that we think are extremely important for students’ relationships with maths. Please share it with your students – and their parents – and also please share it on social media to get the messages out as widely as we can. Viva La Revolution!
