Maths the Wacky Way is a course designed to help students to achieve their full potential in mathematics in an enjoyable and unforgettable way. Many consider mathematics as difficult/boring but Maths the Wacky Way brings maths to life using dance moves, comparing methods to computer games, generally breaking it down so children (and adults) find it easy and fun!

Maths the Wacky Way originally came about after praise by students and parents alike for my highly successful teaching methods. Six years ago my book Maths the Wacky Way was published. Four years ago I produced three sample videos and received feedback as shown below:

  • 'Love it!! Super helpful for my son. Thank you!!!'
  • 'Claire - I am 52 years old and for the first time in my life I understand fractions thank you thank you thank you'
  • 'Cool way to learn! =) Thanks!'

  • 'I love the way you teach! Your style is engaging with youngsters, I wish my teachers were as cool as you are. Thank you for sharing!'

  • 'All your videos are brilliant. Thank you for the simple and affective (and fun) methods. Phew, to think I struggled with these concepts 40 years ago and it is this simple!!!!!'

I have now created the course below which includes 12 videos covering over two hours of lectures, the wacky way! There is a quiz containing five multiple choice questions after each topic, so 55 questions in addition to the lectures.

Who this course is for:
  • Adults needing a refresher
  • Parents wanting to assist their children
  • Children 12 years old or above
  • Teacher looking for ways to teach
  • Anyone that wants to learn the wacky way!

+ Percentages, Decimals, Fractions, Ratios and Probability
3 lectures 31:54

Solutions may be required in decimals, fractions or percentages. This lecture helps you convert between them all showing all six possible conversions.

Conversions between Percentages, Fractions and Decimals
5 questions

Ratios can be used to split amounts. This lecture shows how to convert the ratio into a fraction and therefore avoid any confusion with the actual ratio.

5 questions

Probability is the chance of something happening. This lecture considers multiple scenarios including the 'or' rule and the 'and' rule by translating these words using maths!

5 questions
+ Rounding
1 lecture 16:26

This covers rounding to decimal places and significant figures. This is extremely important especially on a calculator paper where you may need to give your answers to decimal places or significant figures.

5 questions
+ Triangles
2 lectures 27:12

There are four main types of triangles. This lecture shows all four and how they can be tested in the exam so you will be able to answer any type of scenario.

Triangles - Types and Angles
5 questions

Pythagoras Theorem is used to find the missing length in a right angled triangle. This lecture converts the formula in a way that can be used by everyone to find the missing length. This also covers the various sneaky ways examiners may test this topic.

Pythagoras Theorem
Pythagoras Theorem
5 questions
+ Inequalities
1 lecture 14:02

Also known as greater than or less than, students always struggle with this topic. This lecture shows an easy way to read inequalties but also how this can be tested with algebra. These should be straight forward after watching this lecture.

5 questions
+ Quadratic Equations
2 lectures 27:45

Part 1 of this lecture shows you how to expand quadratic equations using smiles and frowns or a straight forward grid.

Quadratic Equations - Expanding

Part 2 shows how to factorise quadratic equations and also solve them. This also includes many examples to help with your understanding.
