Dave spoke about how everyday things can have a creative effect within the classroom:

Labels in shops and supermarkets for ‘deals’ which are not extremely good being used to interest Maths students.

A ruler on the spine of Ikea, using electrical tape on signs, a 21 percent sale….

Amazing pictures taken by Dave himself had the audience chuckling with laughter, not to mention feeling shocked when realising they are all very real. Students can be inspired by the fact these things actually occur, plus knowing where they are will add real interest.
