Maths - Resource of the week

4th May 2012 at 01:00

A match made in heaven

ibblet's PowerPoint games are a quick and easy way to revise a wide range of maths topics by playing pairs. They cover subjects such as multiplication, powers and roots, decimals and fractions.

How does it work?

Each slide features 20 squares with a number, arranged in a grid formation. When pupils click on a number, it is highlighted. They must then select the number or function that matches. If they get the answer right, it is highlighted in the same colour.

Why is it useful?

This is a handy tool for a quick starter or plenary. And it comes with a template for pupils to create their own games.
