A blog about teaching and learning in a maths classroom.
I've updated the electronic dice on MathsStarters. Includes ready to go Multo and Addo cards.
Variations of dice include two six-sided dice, two ten-sided dice or two custom dice (0 to 20) - the dice can show multiplication or addition and answers.
I've added an additional game under the Fractions category on MathsStarters Bingo:
Just added to MathsStarters: Number of the Day (junior) is for Stage 2/3 students (Years 3 to 6) covering:
represent numbers of up to four digits using objects, words, numerals and digital displays
identify the number before and after a given two-, three- or four-digit number
count forwards and backwards by tens and hundreds on and off the decade
arrange numbers of up to four digits in ascending and descending order
use place value to partition numbers of up to four digits
round numbers to the nearest ten, hundred or thousand

I've had Make bingo for trig exact with radians on my To Do list for a while.
Here's a starter activity I have built on MathsStarters: Number of the day.
The “automatic simple random number generator” on MathsStarters got a little fix-up today.
Try out the Word Search on MathsStarters. There are only three versions at the moment (although the placement of the letters is different each time you play the game). If you’d like to add a game, just send me a comma-separated list of words and a title for you game. For teachers in NSW, Australia, my current aim is to make a word search for each topic in the NSW General Mathematics syllabus.
Also, I’ve added the search functionality back on this blog.
School holidays… it’s been quiet.
Looking forward to seeing Dan Meyer present in Sydney this week, looks like there are still places at the afternoon session.
Yesterday, I announced that I added a Maths Bingo game to MathsStarters. Since then, I’ve added Expansion (algebraic) and Unit conversion games.
I reckon Maths Bingo is a great starter, ender or in-betweener…
I’ve updated the Quick Quiz app on MathsStarters.
On MathsStarters, I have added a Frequency Distribution Table tool. The tool lets you have 3 to 10 scores, you tally as you go and the frequency and total are calculated.
You could use this on a projector/IWB (the buttons for incrementing the tally are sized for an IWB). Or, students could use this to record data on their own laptop as they collect it – paperless!
