A Mathematics Lesson Starter Of The Day


Topics: Starter | Arithmetic | Tables

  • Transum,
  •  
  • This Starter is a fine activity for pupils who have already mastered the main times tables and haven't had to learn a new times table for a long time. After the initial learning, the best way to develop fast recall is by using Table Legs. In fact why don't you, the teacher, try using it so that you experience what your pupils go through when learning times tables?

  • I thought it was interesting to see in the image included in the tweet below how the activity has been translated into Spanish but even the decimal points have been transformed into commas!

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:

Transum.org/go/?Start=July7

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

Here is the URL which will take them to a game that will help them practise the 5.5 times table.

Transum.org/go/TD/?T=5.5

Here is the URL which will take them to times table flash cards that will help them practise other times table.
