## 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.

"Here is a good application of division for the inquisitive pupil. Think of a three digit number that has all three digits the same. Divide the number by the sum of the digits. Try some other similar three digit numbers. Interesting isn't it?"

"I got a division problem on level 7 and it gave me 3006 divided by 6 I typed in 501 but the correction said that the answer was something else and then I pulled out my calculator and typed in the same equation and the answer said 501 I kept on trying to put in 501 but it didn't work.

[Transum: Did you notice at the top of the page the instruction to give all answers to two decimal places?]"
