In a moment your teacher will call the register in random order!
When your name is called you must answer with a multiple of seven.
You cannot choose a number which has already been called out. Take some time now to prepare some alternatives that no one else is likely to come up with.

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:

The number 7 has a lot to answer for! It was revealed by a chief examiner that students are more likely to make a mistake with a question containing a seven. Yes It is hard to believe but around 10% fewer students will get an exam question correct if it contains a seven!
Transum has created a short arithmetic quiz to test this theory. Try answering the questions without using a calculator to see if you have, what I have called, heptaphobia!
