Mad Maths Day

Discussion in 'Primary' started by analouise50, Jan 9, 2011.

  1. Hi, I have a year one class who love maths. I have decided to dedicated a whole day to 'mad maths' with lots of practicle maths tasks. I have several ideas for measuring and estimating, and have a few games for number work, but really want to do something different and exciting for number work, adding, multiplication, odd numbers, et, that the children really enjoy??

    I cut up a hundred square into odd sections and asked my class if they could put it back together
    also sections of a hundred square with missing numbers
    Simple Sudoku
  3. Have a good look at the nrich site, enough there to keep even the most avid maths fan busy!

    I agree NRich is a wonderful resource, and I like the idea of 100-square jigsaws too.
    I also wouldn't pass up the opportunity to do a little maths treasure hunt - each clue's answer leads to the next one, etc.I can give more details if you want but it's pretty simple (and effective).

    If you want to have fun teaching multiplication to Year 1, you absolutely MUSt download Timez Attack. It's a free game that is not only excellent for teaching times tables but will give you something you can use as a reward activity for months!
    Seriously. Download it. They'll love it.
