Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

Comment recorded on the 18 September 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs. Peacock, Downe House School and Kennet School:

"My year 8's absolutely loved the "Separated Twins" starter. I set it as an optional piece of work for my year 11's over a weekend and one girl came up with 3 independant solutions."

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.

> means greater than (the number on the left of this sign must be more than the number on the right).

< means less than (the number on the left of this sign must be less than the number on the right).

= means equals (the number on the left of this sign must have the same value as the number on the right).

It is easier to compare two (fractions with quite different denominators) by converting them both to decimals. Do this by dividing the top (numerator) by the bottom (denominator).

1 kilometre (km) = 1000 metres (m)

1 metre (m) = 100 centimetres (cm)

1 centimetre (cm) = 10 millimetres (mm)

1 kilogram (kg) = 1000 grams (g)

1 litre (l) = 1000 millilitres (ml)

1 hour = 60 minutes
