Maths resource of the week 6

Maths resource of the week 6

Each week Craig Barton, creator of, 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!

To access all the Resources of the Week from this year, and the archived collection from last year, just click on the links at the bottom of the page. And if you've spotted a resource that you feel not enough people know about, then just drop me an email.

We've all been there – you are teaching solving linear equations, you are pretty sure your students have got their heads around it, and now you just want some quick fire examples to test out their knowledge. You could make up your own, use Ten Ticks, are cross your fingers that the textbook has some decent questions, or alternatively you could use this delightful resource from judsonb. It is an Excel file which randomly generates three different types of linear equations which can either be projected onto the IWB or printed out in handy worksheets. There are also more difficult applications questions, and best of all one tap of F9 on your keyboard, and the questions all change! Very useful indeed.
