What a year it’s been – our lives have been turned upside down and spun around. We cannot help but worry for learners around the world. With lockdowns (yes, plural), school closures (although they never really ‘closed’, did they?) and constant change, 2020 can certainly be described as challenging. But, despite this, we absolutely do not want learners’ education to suffer – and we are pretty sure you feel the same.

So, at Numerise, we’re running a competition to try and keep learners focused and motivated in maths for the rest of the year. Introducing Winter Numberland…

Winter Numberland

Practice really does make perfect, and we want to keep everyone practising Maths throughout December. What better way than to run a competition?

We will be crowning not one, not two, but FOUR winners at the end of this competition. What's more, every winner will receive:

  • A brand-new Google Chromebook
  • A year-long subscription to Numerise

It’s super easy (and free) to enter. All your students have to do is create a free Numerise account and answer 30 questions correctly in one week to be entered into that week’s prize draw. Full details here.

What is Numerise?

If the competition has sparked an interest, we should probably explain what Numerise is. 

Numerise is the easy way to build confidence in Maths at home. With personalised practice and over 9,000 explainer videos to help when the Maths just doesn’t make sense, learners can work at their own pace and take all their progress back to school.

The Maths aligns with what learners are taught in school and every major exam board in England, so you can rest assured that everything they work on will help them with exams, and beyond school. Plus, they can set goals and earn achievements along the way to keep them motivated and on-track. 

Parents and carers get their very own dashboard, which means that they can see the amazing progress by made by their child(ren), and celebrate with them when the time comes. 

Numerise is brought to you by the same brains behind award-winning products Sparx Maths and HegartyMaths – already helping 1.4 million learners around the world.


In October, we launched our #GetMathsConfident campaign. The campaign aims to boost learners’ confidence in maths with tips, helpful resources, videos from experts and much more. Teachers, parents and learners can find a whole host of confidence-boosting resources including videos, recipes, podcasts and playlists over on our Confidence Lab. Here are a few of our favourites:

  • ‘Focus room’ Spotify playlist – designed to improve concentration
  • 10 brain-boosting snacks to help focus and motivation 
  • Downloadable positive affirmations to empower learners when they look at their phone
  • A special video from Mr Hegarty himself explaining the power of practice 

Don't take our word for it

We know that it’s really easy for us to tell you how much we like Numerise, but that’s not helpful. So, we recruited a few Numerise Ambassadors who can tell you how Numerise has helped them with Maths.

    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.

    Employable young people or human robots?

    STEM skills have been a major focus in education for over a decade and more young people are taking science, technology, engineering, and maths subjects at university than ever before, according to statistics published by UCAS. The downside of this is that the UK is now facing a soft skills crisis and the modern world will also require children to develop strong social skills as the workplaces are transformed by technology.
