Maths resource of the week 28


Each week Craig Barton, creator of www.mrbartonmaths.com, picks out a TES maths resource that has caught his eye and records a short video about it. These videos will attempt to explain why Craig likes the resource, and offer up a few ideas about how it might be used in the classroom. If you have watched the video, downloaded the resource, and then used it in a lesson, it would be fantastic if you could return to this page to share your thoughts and ideas in the Comments section below, or to simply pass on your thanks to the author!

This resource from ibblet is simply outstanding. It consists of a series of Matching Games for the interactive whiteboard covering a wide ranging of mathematical topics, including multiplication, powers and roots, sequences and shapes. Students must find matching pairs in order to complete the board. What makes this resource even better is that the author has kindly included a template to allow you to create your own Matching Games. However, as I suggest in the video, an alternative might be to set your students the task of creating a Matching Game on a given topic. I believe this would be a really worthwhile, fun and effective revision strategy, and create you a load of extra resources into the bargain!
