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?

"Excellent resource, I it all of the time! The only problem is that there is too much good stuff here!!"

Comment recorded on the 3 October 'Starter of the Day' page by Fiona Bray, Cams Hill School:

"This is an excellent website. We all often use the starters as the pupils come in the door and get settled as we take the register."

Tran Tunnels

Answer the questions as you find your way through the tunnels. Collect coins on the way. There's a musical theme to this adventure game and you won't be able to complete it unless you solve all of the clues.

Numeracy

"Numeracy is a proficiency which is developed mainly in Mathematics but also in other subjects. It is more than an ability to do basic arithmetic. It involves developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures. It requires understanding of the number system, a repertoire of mathematical techniques, and an inclination and ability to solve quantitative or spatial problems in a range of contexts. Numeracy also demands understanding of the ways in which data are gathered by counting and measuring, and presented in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables."

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. The Go Maths main page links to more activities designed for students in upper Secondary/High school.

"True or False Level 3 has a lot of ambiguous statements that could be true, false or sometimes be true! For example, the external angles of a REGULAR hexagon are all 60 degrees each making the statement true wheras in the case of an IRREGULAR hexagon, this is not the case necessarily - making the 'sometimes option' applicable. Could you post the solution to this please as I'm pulling my hair out (what little I still have)! Many thanks.

Transum: Steve, thanks so much for your comments and I hope you still have some hair left! You are right, an irregular hexagon does not necessarily have all of its exterior angles equal so that statement would go into the 'sometimes' column. I would like to encourage you to subscribe as the answers are available for subscribers (see above)."
