MathsPad on the Ipad
We are updating our resources to work on the ipad. You can read our latest news on this here.
A great maths book on Amazon:
This month we've added dozens of new resources to help students learn about fractional indices. This worksheet and activity pack contains matching activities using numbers and algebra, dominoes, a 'find the missing power' worksheet and a short assessment of the topic.
We've also put together a lesson plan for standard form, including a new interactive student task that requires students to think about multiplying by powers of 10 as well as converting to standard form, a powers of 10 puzzle, a match three activity and an extension puzzle based around writing the number 1 million in as many different ways as possible.
For younger students we've put together a new interactive student task for practising working with prime numbers. There's also a lesson plan with ideas for getting students to relate prime numbers to the area of rectangles.
We started thinking about multiples with this game where you have to guess two numbers, but you are only allowed six clues about whether the number you have guessed is a multiple of either of the target numbers. It is quite hard, but we do think its possible to win every time! (and we played many times!)
We then moved on to thinking about resources for the lowest common multiple of a pair of large numbers and produced a lesson plan, student interactive task and a set of worksheets to support students trying to understand how the prime factors help us determine the multiples of a number and the least common multiple of a pair.
