"Very good starters, help pupils settle very well in maths classroom."

Comment recorded on the 1 May 'Starter of the Day' page by Phil Anthony, Head of Maths, Stourport High School:

"What a brilliant website. We have just started to use the 'starter-of-the-day' in our yr9 lessons to try them out before we change from a high school to a secondary school in September 2007. This is one of the best resources on-line we have found. The kids and staff love it. Well done an thank you very much for making my maths lessons more interesting and fun."

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.

Description of Levels

Level 1 - Simple equations where the solution can be found by dividing both sides of the equation by an integer.

Example: 8n = 64

Level 2 - Simple equations where the solution can be found in two steps.

Example: 9e + 6 = 78

Level 3 - Equations where a multiple of the unknown and a constant are on both sides.

Example: 4y - 7 = 3y - 4

Level 4 - Equations including brackets.

Example: 2(4r + 7) - 9 = 21

Level 5 - More complex equations requiring multiple steps to find the solution.

Example: 6(10h + 3) + 4 = 7h + 287

Example

Here is an example showing a good way to solve an equation of this type (Level 1) by thinking of the two sides of the equation as two sides of a balance. The equation will remain balanced only if you do the same thing (multiply, divide add or subtract) to both sides.

3x = 12
Divide both sides by 3
x = 4

By doing the same thing to both sides of the equation you can find what one x is equal to.
