Our Games

Lightning Maths make fun maths resources that present maths puzzles as games rather than worksheets.The games are physical and tactile, they involve flipping over cards and moving counters.

Lightning Maths games are social. It is the social interaction and support during the game that helps build mathematical confidence.

Lampogo 3 is the first game that Lightning Maths has produced.

"Lampogo 3 is a good game for building confidence and giving children the opportunity to say, 'Guess what, I can actually do this - I'm actually capable of doing maths.'"

Our work with Schools

Lightning Maths works with schools to support targeted groups of children. We have developed teaching resources for schools to use as well as a programme to support the learning of problem solving strategies.

We are currently carrying out a project funded by the SHINE Trust to research our the effectiveness of our ‘Lampogo 3’ game in schools. So far the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! Thanks to all the school who are taking part,
