Directed Fractions: The Board Game

Snakes and ladders; but with fractions; and dodecagonal dice: sum the negatives *and* positives before you make *your* move! Yes, you too can practice: * calculating equivalent fractions, so you can translate the * fractions on the * faces of the dodecagonal dice you made and hence * calculate the sum of the * positive and negative fractions on respective faces of each and hence * make your correct directed fraction move! equivalent fractions | adding & subtracting fractions | directed number | nets | dodecagons | properties of solids

Math Revision - Giant Graphical Colour Floor Puzzle

Math Revision - Giant Graphical Colour Floor Puzzle

Revision of English Mathematics Key Stage 3 and/or Key Stage 4 basics. Giant floor puzzle. Print to A3 paper and then cut out the triangles. Laminate if you wish to reuse. Testing suggests optimum size for groups is 8-10 pupils. Alternately, give a couple of pieces to each pupil at the start; then as pieces placed and pupils sit in circle to watch the "core team" fit the pairs together, run substitutions in/out of the choir team from the chairs. Alternately, insist each pupil holds a single puzzle piece and finds every match for his/her piece and then stands up holding their piece in the air. This requires an overhead fish-eye/sports camera looking down on your hall/room - and a bigger than A3 print.
