Estimating Angles – Transum

**Julie Morgan’s** mention of **Transum**‘s starter on estimating anles reminded me of how often I use resources on Transum which is mentioned all over this blog! Staying with Angles, there is a further **Angles Activity** with 4 levels so you can practise as much as you want! And here are more **Angles Activies** including Starters.

I thought it would be useful to put together some of the resources I have used from this excellent site full of high quality resources. Transum has a superb collection of free resources. (Subscriptions offer additional features but the free model is superb.)

The appropriate place to start is of course with the fantastic collection of starters – **Maths Starter of the Day**. Note that there is a complete **index** of starters including the topic of the starter. Many of the **Shine and Write** activities would also make good lesson starters. For example **are these statements true, sometimes true or false**? As with many of the activities on this site you can refresh the page for further statements, you can also change the level. Or perhaps some **Mathanagrams? **I think it is through the starters that many teachers have come to know the site, but it has so much more!

Transum – Topic Index

The Transum site is easy to navigate, there is a clear **Topic Index for Teachers** also, for students a **Maths Map** with numerous activities to support their learning.

Transum – Maths Map for students

**Venn Paint** is included in my **Venn Diagrams** post.

Level 2 has 3 set Venn Diagrams. Exam Questions are included also (solutions are provided for subscribers).

**Systematic Listing Strategies** includes Transum activities.

And many more mentions….

**Box Plots** and many other **Statistics activities**,

With Year 11, we practised Completing the Square with a Transum **level 2** and **level 3 **activity**. **And in case you want some more Algebra – **there’s a whole index of activities.**

On **Arithmagons **the **Arithmagon activity** which has options for forwards and backwards problems on Addition, Multiplication and Subtraction displays very clearly on the Interactive Whiteboard.

**Investigations Resources **includes** Investigations from Transum **

**Happy Numbers Resources** – an attractive statement of the problem on **Transum**

**Mathematics Crosswords** includes **this Transum interactive crossword** with the software from Eclipse.

I’ll finish (for now) with a **Counter Moving Puzzle**!
