    A set of PowerPoint slides each with a mathematical word/concept (and a scary picture of Richard and Judy!) which children are encouraged to try to define and explain to the class. The words/concepts could easily be edited and adapted, if required, to suit a particular topic, and could be used effectively at the start and end of a unit of work to assess and review understanding.
