We’re the family maths charity! We’re on a mission to give all families and communities creative, human and social experiences of maths – we want everyone in the UK to feel positive about maths!
Maths on Toast was set up in 2012, in frustrated response to the lack of opportunities for families to have fun doing maths together. If a parent wants to support their child’s literacy, they can go to the library, support them in the school play, or read them a story. Why wasn’t the same support (and fun) available for numeracy and maths?
We provide free online creative resources to enable families to explore and enjoy maths at home together, discover how maths is everywhere you look and find out for themselves that maths can be for everyone! Our resources include craft activities, games, challenges, videos, tips and advice.
Our family-friendly offer
Enjoying maths together is the first step you can take to support children's learning. Creating positive memories of doing maths together as a family is an important step in building a confident, can-do attitude towards maths.
All our at-home activities are free to download and accessible for all.
