Can you think of some more?

Here are some ideas:

• Transum,

• Please let Transum know if any of your pupils produce something interesting as a result of this starter. Their work can be displayed on this page. It is hoped that your pupils can gain a better understanding of some mathematical concepts by doing this activity and that they will remember what they have learned about these concepts for a long time because of this unusual way of thinking about mathematics.

• Realised I could use this to prompt meaning of unfamiliar words/phrases, and maybe use the same idea to get the students to produce wall displays - to help them in class, and other students too.

• As an alternative to the 'Can you think of some more?' challenge, this activity could be turned into a memory game. Pupils could be asked to look at the animation at the top of this page for two minutes while they try to memorise as many of the Wordles as possible. The projector is then turned off (blacked out) and the pupils are challenges to draw as many of the Wordles as they can remember. The extension activity could then be 'Can you think of some more?'.
