  • Thank you so much for your wonderful site. I have so much material to use in class and inspire me to try something a little different more often. I am going to show my maths department your website and encourage them to use it too. How lovely that you have compiled such a great resource to help teachers and pupils.
    Thanks again

  • To be honest, survey is not maths related.

    [Transum: The anagram of survey has been replaced by the anagram of another word which has a stronger connection to Mathematics.]

  • We liked it, however, we feel that a greater variety of words would be more suitable for a wider age range.
