  • Transum,

  • The panel above gives the teacher the opportunity to choose the mathematical concepts in this Starter of the Day. It could be an exercise in rounding (approximation) or the focus could be on performing calculations with large numbers and converting the units the answer is given in to make it more easily understandable. Questions are provided on using percentages, standard form (scientific notation) and fractions. There is the opportunity for pupils to research facts and statistics to answer some of the questions. If you select more questions than will fit on the screen use the view – zoom feature of your web browser to adjust the display.

    I hope you enjoy this Starter for World Population day.

Laptops In Lessons

Teacher, do your students have access to computers such as tablets, iPads or Laptops?  This page was really designed for projection on a whiteboard but if you really want the students to have access to it here is a concise URL for a version of this page without the comments:

Transum.org/go/?Start=July11

However it would be better to assign one of the student interactive activities below.

Here is the URL which will take them to a related student activity.
