Play with Maths

Often when I meet kids at the park, all I hear about is mobiles, laptops, video games, shopping, travel, food and friends.
Often when I meet people at informal places like office canteen, café, or parties – topics which I hear about are mobiles, laptops, video games, shopping, travel, food and friends.
- I do not listen Geography
- I do not listen Maths
- I do not listen Science
- Or about Grammar
While the maths, science, geography and grammar are all around me, I use it in my life to live……….but I do not feel it, I am not aware about it, I am alien to it. Maths is seen as calculations and is used to check intelligence. Children meet maths, through checking: “do you know this?” “Can you do this calculation?”
When I give calculator to kids to play maths – they look at me with wonder, can maths be played ?
When I give playing cards to kids and play maths – they look at me with wonder, can maths be played ?
