Connecting Rules

Here are some equations that are true when x=3 and y=4 but there is at least one mistake. Click on the ticks and crosses to show this piece of work correctly marked.

x + y = 7

x - y = 1

y - x = 1

2x + 3y = 18

5x - 2y = 7

4y - x = 13

xy - 10 = 2

180 - 2x + y = 178

20x - 3xy = 33

x2 + y = 13

10x - y2 = 14

y2 - x2 = 7

x2y + 13 = 62

x2y2 - 2x = 138

x2y3 = 576

x! + y = 10

5(x + y) = 35

"We recently had an afternoon on accelerated learning.This linked really well and prompted a discussion about learning styles and short term memory."

"Really good site. Lots of good ideas for starters. Use it most of the time in KS3."

Featured Activity

River Crossing

River Crossing

Three interactive versions of the traditional river crossing puzzles. The objective is to get all of the characters to the other side of the river without breaking any of the rules.

Numeracy

"Numeracy is a proficiency which is developed mainly in Mathematics but also in other subjects. It is more than an ability to do basic arithmetic. It involves developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures. It requires understanding of the number system, a repertoire of mathematical techniques, and an inclination and ability to solve quantitative or spatial problems in a range of contexts. Numeracy also demands understanding of the ways in which data are gathered by counting and measuring, and presented in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables."

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 main page links to more activities designed for students in upper Secondary/High school.
