A Mathematics Lesson Starter of the Day


Topics: Starter | Decimals | Fractions | Puzzles

  • Transum,
  •  
  • Matching the fractions is the easy part. Joining them without crossing the lines is really quite hard but such a rewarding experience when achieved. It is one of those activities that "...stimulate moments of pleasure and wonder for all pupils when they solve a problem for the first time". Of course the teacher might be keen to point pupils in the general direction of finding the solution for themselves, that's good teaching.
  • Jack Johnson, Norwich
  •  
  • My year 4 class solved this really quickly. Mandy Junior said " Hatdo helped me solve this". Hatdo said" I feel really epic for solving such a difficult problem so quickly".

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=August7

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.
