The World of Maths

We had a visit from the World of Maths last week and the Grade 5/6 students found the puzzle activities interesting and challenging. Plenty of hands-on math materials to use and lots of problem solving!

Place Value

All the fun stuff to begin the year: number lines, place value games, comparing number sizes and playing Yahtzee!

 

Fractions! (Hooray, my favourite!)

Here is a game to help you practice Factors and Multiples.

Angles (not angels!)

We’ve just started our topic on angles. Here is a great game that will test your knowledge and skills on them.

A good introduction to the order of operations process. The calculations are basic , this is because the focus is on completing the sum in the correct order.

Coordinates/Mapping/Location

We’re starting off Term 3 with Co-ordinates in our Daily 4 Maths! Unfortunately, there are no appropriate Battleship games online to play. We’ll just have to play these…

DINO DIG

Here’s a great coordinate game called Dino Dig. It uses a grid with X and Y coordinates to dig up dinosaur bones! Similar to Battleship.

 Taxi-Cab Treasure Hunt

This game uses coordinate skills on a map, with streets names instead of grid references. My record is 2 moves to find the treasure (I have proof), try and beat my record!

Bike Route

Help Inez find the shortest path on his bike. Requires good coordinate knowledge!

Coordinate Game

Boring name for a game, but tests your knowledge and understanding of X and Y coordinates.
