Nrich – Estimating Angles

I have I have been very happily distracted playing mathematical games today! It all started when I wanted to find a good resource for estimating angles which Year 7 will be studying this week. My favourite is **this from Nrich. **I like the incentive of scoring more points for greater accuracy and the fact that like **all Nrich games** there is an option to display full screen which is excellent for the interactive whiteboard.

This in turn reminded me that I wanted to do a little housekeeping on my **Maths Games blog** – which is basically just a collection of favourites – many from Nrich.

Find the Factors – Iva Sallay

This is still a work in progress but I have removed outdated links and reorganised pages. I have added a **Geometry page **for example to remind me about the angle estimation interactive from Nrich.

I discovered Iva Sallay’s rather nice **Find the Factors puzzles** not long ago so added a post on that and also included it on the **Puzzles Page. **Note the other favourites there – I do like the Set Game which is still published every day in The New York Times.

C1 Revision Resource – TES

A games format always makes a change for revision. Have a look at this rather nice resource on **TES for C1 revision** (C1 is the first module on the UK A Level qualification – age 16-18). This uses **Mark E Damon’s template** which could easily be adapted for other topics.

There are some games templates available from the links below for those of you who may wish to create your own resources.

**PowerPoint Games** – from encw.edu/Edgames.

**Game Templates **(note that these are free for non-commercial use – see **About**).

Colleen, I discovered your blog after listening to an interview you did on the TES Maths podcast. Your blog is an amazing collection of some of the internet’s best math resources. I am always excited when you post something new because I know it will be great. Thanks for sharing all of your awesome content with us!

Reblogged this on Find the Factors and commented:

It turns out that the mathematicsgames.wordpress.com is actually part of the mathematics, Learning blog. (I would have known that if I had looked at my reader before I looked at my stats.) Anyway this blog is another great resource for teachers, parents, and lovers of mathematics.

Brilliant post, thanks. One day last year anew exam, or possibly a trip, meant my colleague and I were left with three pupils each in a class. We put them head to head on estimating angles. It was awesome!

Sounds like fun! I must confess I have been practising – I am rather good at estimating angles!
