Watch how inspirational magic can help make maths and science fun, exciting and creative. Also, learn how to do the tricks yourself.
Former space scientist-turned-mathmagician, Dr Mark Biddiss, visits a north London school and demonstrates magic tricks and wacky science investigations to a group of thrilled pupils and teachers.
Find out from Mark how to use card tricks and simple experiments to help stimulate higher order thinking skills, problem solving and communication and reasoning skills.
Teachers can use these as starter activities or as full maths and science investigations, and they cover curriculum topics including number pattern, space, shapes and measures.
