The Big Ask Maths Week Spreadsheet Challenge

In the spreadsheet challenge, you can create a summary table and chart using 1,000 randomly selected observations from The Big Ask, the largest ever survey of children in England. Tutorial video on the right!

The Big Ask Maths Week Worksheet Challenge

In the worksheet challenge we’ve selected a smaller sample of results from The Big Ask survey for you to work with and provide sets of questions to look at different elements of the data.

Where can I go with maths?

Where can I go with maths? is an interactive quiz connecting the maths you learn in school to careers, skills and everyday life. It allows you to match yourself to careers that use maths or maths skills that relate to the areas of maths you like and the skills you feel are your strongest. It showcases lots of different careers from scientists, engineers and analysts to designers, carpenters, bakers and special effects artists.

The Big Ask

The Children’s Commissioner launched The Big Ask survey so you could tell us about your lives. It was an incredible opportunity to think big about how we make your lives better.

Over half a million of you answered our survey. The Big Answers report shares what you told us in the survey. And what the Children’s Commissioner thinks needs to be done to sort these problems out.
