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 25 June 'Starter of the Day' page by Inger.kisby@herts and essex.herts.sch.uk, : "We all love your starters. It is so good to have such a collection. We use them for all age groups and abilities. Have particularly enjoyed KIM's game, as we have not used that for Mathematics before. Keep up the good work and thank you very much 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."

"Here is a good application of division for the inquisitive pupil. Think of a three digit number that has all three digits the same. Divide the number by the sum of the digits. Try some other similar three digit numbers. Interesting isn't it?"

"I got a division problem on level 7 and it gave me 3006 divided by 6 I typed in 501 but the correction said that the answer was something else and then I pulled out my calculator and typed in the same equation and the answer said 501 I kept on trying to put in 501 but it didn't work.
Please fix this!
[Transum: Did you notice at the top of the page the instruction to give all answers to two decimal places?]"
