Hi, This last term (in the end for about three weeks) I wrote and created my own context based maths lessons for my year 5/6 class. It begins with a ideo of Dr Evil (my long suffering teenage son all dressed up) breaking into a powerpoint to tell the class that only THEY can save the world. From that point on they are secret agents for MI5 1/2 and have various missions (ordering decimals to create a Most Wanted list, kitting out the spies, creating a graph of the diamond mine production, working out the coordinates of the henchmen etc). The lessons finish with them defeating Dr Evil and theres a final video of him cursing (not literally) the pesky kids as his base falls apart around him. Hope someone will find it useful as my class loved it (and I loved teaching it --despite HATING maths!) http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6017579&preview=1 Please rate it if you like it!
