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 11 January 'Starter of the Day' page by S Johnson, The King John School:

"We recently had an afternoon on accelerated learning.This linked really well and prompted a discussion about learning styles and short term memory."

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.

One of the important aspects of this quiz is typing in the answer in the correct format. When expressing amounts of money it is standard practice to include two decimal places if the answer is not a whole number of the major unit (pounds, dollars etc).

Eg., six point seven pounds would be written as £6.70 and not £6.7

For the purposes of this exercise type in a whole number of pounds without the decimal places.

Eg., twelve pounds should be written as £12 and not £12.00

Also note that the currency units have already been provided for you, you do not need to type them into the answer box

The exercises are generated from random numbers so each time you refresh the page you will get a different set of questions.

Don't wait until you have finished the exercise before you click on the 'Check' button. Click it often as you work through the questions to see if you are answering them correctly.
