Mike Leigh Cooper and Jonathan Sillence have recently finished working on an exciting video promotional project for The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) with an aim to make people aware of how valuable maths can be as a skill. The video starred both Mike and Jay (Jonathan) walking around the streets of Manchester asking the public a diverse range of maths questions to test them. Some people were more happy to answer than others, of course.
How are you with maths?
The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE) is an independent charity which promotes adult learning across England and Wales. Through its research, development, publications, events, outreach and advocacy activity, NIACE works to improve the quality and breadth of opportunities available for all adults so they can benefit from learning throughout their lives.
Mike says: “It was great to re-learn some of the skills I hadn’t used for a while! We had a lot of fun working on this one.”
