Designed to jump start Maths lessons. Each slide has three questions when run as a slide show (so there's actually 300 questions). Each question is progressively harder as it goes along (in built differentiation!). Intended as 1 a day starter before leaping into the full lesson but could be used as a 'filler' for rainy days. Based on several other excellent resources I found, combined and added to!

    Really nice resource that can be used as starters or exit cards. It can be differentiated nicely too starting with weaker learners picking cards in pairs and discussing what the question requires. I also like the fact that these can be used to stretch and challenge stronger learners during lessons so they feel challenged whilst allowing me to keep the pace of the lesson. Brilliant resource!
