"This is a great memory aid which could be used for formulae or key facts etc - in any subject area. The PICTURE is such an aid to remembering where each number or group of numbers is - my pupils love it!

## 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.

"The second graphs for 'reading graphs and charts' doesn't show the specific amount meaning you can't properly answer the questions.

[Transum: Thanks for your comment Joseph but the number of medals is shown on the horizontal axis of the second chart in Level 1 of this exercise. You will need to use the skill of estimation when reading values that lie between the marked values.]"
