## The Maths Snacks Shed.

*Math Snacks*are short animations designed to present mathematics in a very different way. In fact, we hope these snacks don't look like traditional math at all.

*Math Snacks*give students, especially those who don't particularly like math, another way to look at math concepts. Each animation comes with resources to help teach based on the video.

We have received permission to use Maths Snacks videos and resources on the Numeracy Shed, but please visit the site by clicking the logo. You will find details of interactive games and other resources.
