## The Maths Magic Show with Mathemagician Andrew Jeffrey

Children are taken on a magical journey that subtly changes their attitude to mathematics. Right from the start, interwoven with the magic, there are clear positive and motivational messages about the learning of maths. Frequently teachers who watch the show say that they too have been really recharged and motivated! Along the way, there is comedy mixed with the magical maths. As an experienced teacher, Andrew knows how to communicate with children who find maths hard, as well as giving a challenge to those for whom maths is a joy.
