Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

"A Maths colleague introduced me to your web site and I love to use it. The questions are so varied I can use them with all of my classes, I even let year 13 have a go at some of them. I like being able to access Starters for the whole month so I can use favourites with classes I see at different times of the week. Thanks."

Comment recorded on the 2 April 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs Wilshaw, Dunsten Collage,Essex:

"This website was brilliant. My class and I really enjoy doing the activites."

Each month a newsletter is published containing details of the new additions to the Transum website and a new puzzle of the month.

The newsletter is then duplicated as a podcast which is available on the major delivery networks. You can listen to the podcast while you are commuting, exercising or relaxing.

Transum breaking news is available on Twitter @Transum and if that's not enough there is also a Transum Facebook page.

#### Tower of Hanoi

Move the pieces of the tower from one place to another in the minimum number of moves. This puzzle was invented in 1883 but is still as captivating today as it was all those years ago.

There are answers to this exercise but they are available in this space to teachers, tutors and parents who have logged in to their Transum subscription on this computer.

A Transum subscription unlocks the answers to the online exercises, quizzes and puzzles. It also provides the teacher with access to quality external links on each of the Transum Topic pages and the facility to add to the collection themselves.

Subscribers can manage class lists, lesson plans and assessment data in the Class Admin application and have access to reports of the Transum Trophies earned by class members.

## Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths page is an alphabetical list of free activities designed for students in Secondary/High school.

"If you are not up to answering the questions quickly enough you could start by just doing the left column. If you can manage that progress to the left two columns until you build up enough speed to try all of the columns. Each time you start the clock the questions change so you do not need to worry about repeating yourself! Enjoy."

"How can I embed the code for Beat The Clock into my Wordpress blog?
Would like to make your games a feature, but better than a link."

"Thanks for your question Andy. It can be done by using an inline frame. Here is the code you will need:
<iframe id="I1" name="I1" src="https://www.transum.org/Maths/Activity/Beat_The_Clock/" style="width: 963px; height: 970px">
It needs copying and pasting as text (not visual)."

"Can you please add level 10 and 11, I have finished 9 so many times and I love this game but it is getting boring doing only level 9 all the time, I love challenges so can you please add a level 10 and 11.

[Transum: Well Asmi, if Level 9 is too easy for you I have now added a Level 10. Let's see if you can complete Level 10 before I start thinking about a Level 11. Keep up the good work.]"
