Maths lessons tend to be quite predictable. Follow the curriculum set way back at the start of the school year. Relevant or not! Helpful or not. Boring, or not.
But then . . . along comes some real-life event that interests everyone — yes, EVERYONE!
And what do Maths lessons do? Well, nothing new, usually.
BUT NOT OURS!!
You see, each week we write and email out Maths resources DIRECTLY RELATED TO REAL-LIFE HAPPENINGS. And not just current affairs! Often they are about the latest movie releases for children, or the latest pop tunes, or the top-of-the-ratings TV shows, or sporting heroes, or the weather, or . . . whatever!
Things that interest EVERYONE. But with a worded Maths question attached. Fun. Stimulating. Positive Maths!
You’ll never know how helpful these resources could be in YOUR CLASSROOM unless you try them out — FREE — and share them with your teaching colleagues, and chat about them in the Staffroom.
All we can do is encourage you to take a look at these worded maths problems.
Tens of thousands of students Australia-wide are using them each and every school week.
Could they help YOU and YOUR CLASS?
