Mind Gym Puzzles to use as starters
This is a compilation of well over 100 starters. It has videos from films where the students solve problems. It has riddles, games, ways of working out the students birthdays with them doing calculations and you guessing the date (you soon spot they are not calculating correctly when you get they born in the 15th month!) There is suduko with bikes, a puzzle for them to remove a block from a box by sliding others around, a task they need to complete before Pitbull finishes singing! A colour task for them to shout out, there are literacy resources to use in maths, and lots of other tasks including illusions with the videos and power points all embedded and link to lots of games. They are great as starters and fillers at the end of the lesson when you finish unexpectedly early!
