Who would have thought . . .?

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?

Please consider

Primary Teachers, Shane Warne, Baked Beans & Maths. REALLY??

Who would have thought that Shane Warne’s baked beans habits would make a great Maths question for primary students?

But they did!

And they do!

Here it is . . . the BIG QUESTION . . .

“Aussie cricketer Shane Warne had 1,900 tins of baked beans flown in and addressed to him personally in India in 1998. (But they weren’t ALL just for him!) If each tin cost 80 cents, what was the total value of all those cans of baked beans?”

And there are HEAPS MORE topical, FUN maths questions where that one came from.

For an OBLIGATION-FREE 3-WEEK TRIAL SUBS., go to http://www.EdShop.net.au and ENJOY the fun, and the maths success, that we bring to that all-important subject — maths!

Loads more where these came from.

MIDDLE-PRIMARY QUESTIONS:

  1. In the Australian Open tennis on TV, in one hour of viewing there were 24 minutes of commercials. The rest was tennis. How many minutes of actual tennis were on TV in that hour?
  2. The series of Star Wars movies feature the robots C-3PO, R2-D2, and BB-8. What total number do you get by adding all the numbers in these robot names together?
  3. Spongebob Squarepants can jog 50 metres in 30 seconds. At that rate, how long will it take him to jog 200 metres?
  4. Taylor Swift was born on December 13, 1989. How old (in years) will she be on 1st February 2016?03-success

Sometimes Primary-age students just need something to make them LOVE maths . . . and here it is!

Yep! Some kids HATE maths.

No surprise there!

Every primary teacher has seen it! THAT LOOK that covers the face when it’s Maths Time!

(There should be an EMOTICON for that look!)

Anyway, the time has come to replace THAT look with a look of POSITIVE INTEREST and OPTIMISM and ENTHUSIASM in maths lessons.

And  . . . here’s one way. Just one! But it works! FRESHLY EVERY SCHOOL WEEK!

It’s not JUST maths, either! It involves reading comprehension, usually a little discussion with a classmate or teacher, and an interest-packed Maths exercise that’s FUN, topical, full of interest, and teaches HEAPS about how useful Maths is in everyday life.

AND . . . you can try it out for 3 weeks — totally free of cost or obligation.

Go on, give it a go. Chat about it at school with your teacher friends, your Principal, the students in your class.

Try it out as a lesson-starter. Or as ready-made HOMEWORK SHEETS.

MANY teachers have visited! As have many schools! And they’re ecstatic!

Oh, yes, of what am I speaking? (I almost forgot to mention it!)
