Maths in School

Today's Starter is to think of some of the mathematical words which can be made by using the letters in the name of your school.

Teacher; to get started type in the name of your school in the space below. It will need to be the long name of the school rather than the short, abbreviated version as the latter will probably not contain enough letters for this activity.


Topics: Starter | Puzzles | Vocabulary

  • 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.

Teacher, do your students have access to computers such as tablets, iPads or Laptops?  This page was really designed for projection on a whiteboard but if you really want the students to have access to it here is a concise URL for a version of this page without the comments:

However it would be better to assign one of the student interactive activities below.
