A great SWF file where you have to find the three unknown numbers. Would work great as IWB activity, or pupils working individual PC's. Good as an introduction to algebra

Year 3 maths weight problems Children have to use problem solving to work out the weights of the different shapes on the opposite side of the scale. Then once they have worked out the weights of the different shapes, they then work out the weight of the mystery boxes. Differentiated by difficulty of division and addition of weights.

Essential Weighing and MeasuringQuick View

Essential Weighing and Measuring

Essential maths looks at how we actually use maths in everyday life. This was for my post-16 special needs group. We talked about the different units we use and how confusing it can be they have learned all about g/kg etc and commonly talk about 'losing a few pounds' or describing someone at 6 feet tall. The activity asks which units are most commonly used (more than one answer is fine) and then estimate the average eg weight of a new-born baby. The activity took a lot longer than anticipated!
