Magic Vs - Year 5 Lesson

Thursday, 23 July 2015 ·

Screenshot of Magic Vs SMART Notebook file.Today I had the fun of 20 Year 5 students in my classroom. I used the Magic Vs problem from NRICH. NRICH have lots of good leading questions, solution discussions and videos. There was lots of great thinking and discussion.

I made a SMART Notebook file to aid the discussions, available on MathsFaculty.
