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 19 October 'Starter of the Day' page by E Pollard, Huddersfield: "I used this with my bottom set in year 9. To engage them I used their name and favorite football team (or pop group) instead of the school name. For homework, I asked each student to find a definition for the key words they had been given (once they had fun trying to guess the answer) and they presented their findings to the rest of the class the following day. They felt really special because the key words came from their own personal information." Comment recorded on the 23 September 'Starter of the Day' page by Judy, Chatsmore CHS: "This triangle starter is excellent. I have used it with all of my ks3 and ks4 classes and they are all totally focused when counting the triangles."

"My son struggles with writing, forming numbers, and putting them onto paper. He struggles to write numbers underneath each other in correct columns, even though he knows exactly which column they belong in. This has led to a struggle with completing sums, even though I know he can do them. Now that he can do them on the screen and type the number in, he is flying. This is brilliant for him and for me (his mum), thank you so much for this!"
