Maths lesson starters

110 power point slides to use as mental starter activities in maths lessons, either independently or in pairs . There are a number of different types of activity, all encouraging mental flexibility in the use of the 4 operations. The slides get more challenging to enable progression throughout the term. Aimed at a more able Year 5-6 group but could easily be adapted for different abilities.

Decimal mazes

Decimal mazes

3 versions have been provided. One has instructions allowing the use of a calculator, the second says no calculator, the last version is blank so that you can add your own decimals to add or decrease the difficulty of the maze. To navigate this maze, students should be allowed to use the four operations, +, –, ÷ and x, one time each, as they move from number to number. The goal is to create the greatest possible result at the end of the maze. It is up to you whether you allow the use of calculators and if you do be sure to have students press the “=” key after each operation.

Maths crossword: Word Multiplication

Maths crossword: Word Multiplication

Crosswords and maths very rarely go together however, this resource is perfect for mixing up maths lessons and also helps students with their literacy. It has always surprised me how poor some students are at spelling numbers! This resource includes a crossword with and without pictures along with the solution. All questions will challenge students knowledge of the 12 times tables. You may want to use this as a starter, plenary or even a timed task. Feel free to use with or without calculators also. Enjoy!
