About the Show
This unique live theatrical performance follows the adventures of Sam, an energetic and bubbly young student who has been selected at random to represent her school in a prestigious national mathematics competition.
Sam unfortunately struggles with a lack of self confidence in maths and general apathy towards STEM subjects. She is worried about how she will perform in the competition and what her friends will say if she fails.
Everything changes when Sam meets the amazing Hypatia – a time travelling, maths tutoring, super hero and her crew of maths mindset mentors – who have been helping students through the millennia deal with similar problems.
Hypatia takes Sam on an amazing journey through the world of maths, teaching her that with the right mindset and good study skills everyone can be good at maths.
During her fun filled adventure with Hypatia Sam learns:
How to build a positive attitude and growth mindset in maths
How to combat maths anxiety and overcome her fears about maths
That making mistakes helps to build a better brain
You don’t need to be fast with numbers to do well in maths
Persistence is a key to maths success
Powerful ways to boost self confidence in maths
The show combines humour, live performance, storytelling and audience interaction into a unique maths experience for students.
The show utilises the latest research into how students learn maths and is inspired by the work of academic luminaries such as Jo Boaler and Carol Dweck to make a positive difference in the way students engage with maths.
The Maths Mindset Show is supported by a resource kit to help students further embed their learning from the show.
