World Maths Day is back – very soon!
7th March 2018
…is the big day. Now 7th March means as soon as it is 7th March somewhere in the world, so we then have a 48 hour period during which the competition runs. Check the frequently asked questions for times where you can see the start times for countries around the world.
Register your school; registrations close 5th March 2018. Download the resources. The Teacher Pack is very thorough and helpful. From that, we see that warm-up begins 21st February – so get your school registered and your students will have lots of time to practise!
Note the rules, you can see there are 8 different levels of games; the number of games at each level where a student can score points depends on their year group.
While we wait for warm up we can practise our tables!
From Transum Software comes Flash tables which will present you with random questions from your chosen tables and then show the answer at the speed you select. Also from Transum, see this great Tables Collection which has several activities to try.
Try this Tables Test from tablestest.com which you can play at different levels.
BBC Skillswise though written for adults has some useful activities for students.
For a real challenge try a Find the Factors puzzle from Iva Sallay.
