For a few years, I’ve noticed that kids not only don’t know/struggle with their times tables, but also general ‘number sense’.
The “automatic simple random number generator” on MathsStarters got a little fix-up today.
For “Arts and Crafts Thursday”* we made a foldable to summarise the formula in the topic Series and Applications (Topic 7 in the NSW BOS Mathematics Syllabus).
It’s the last day of term here, so teachers might want to spend some time today fixing up their room. So, I brought my Made4Math Monday forward.
I needed some times table posters for my classroom, but the posters you can buy tend to be for younger students and I haven’t seen a grid version (rather than each table listed separately).
A foldable for reviewing the Rules of Differentiation. Click the preview to see the full version.
Year 11 Mathematics have one of their three periods a week, last period on Fridays. Of course, they’re not highly motivated at that time.
The other week, we folded parabolas, I called it “Arts and Craft Friday”.
The next week, they surprised me by asking what we were doing for “Arts and Craft Friday”... I had nothing!
