"I think these are great! So useful and handy, the children love them.
Could we have some on angles too please?"

#### Connect 4 Factors

A mathematical version of the popular Connect 4 game based on getting four numbers with a common factor in a line. Fun for one, two or a whole class of pupils.

## 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.

## Description of Levels

Close

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.
