Solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication or division in contexts of numbers, measures or pounds and pence
|Bubble Pop - Number Bonds||
A great way to practise number bonds and mental addition. Levels include: number bonds to 10, 20, 50 and 100 as well as addition pairs with a total of up to 20, 50 or 100. Look at the target at the top of the screen and then aim your bubble to make that target.
As a teacher I know how important it is that children know their number bonds (pairs of numbers that add up to 10, 20, 50 or 100), and can add quickly mentally. Repetition is essential in learning number bonds. This game is designed to make the process fun.
Children have to aim their bubble to make a given sum. As they progress the levels get harder; they have less time, or less bubbles to shoot. Each correct answer is accompanied by an image to reinforce the number bond they have found.
This game is available on iPad, iPod and iPhone, as well as on android phones and tablets.
|Card Game - Matching Pairs||
Match the pairs of cards with the same value. A great game to play as a mental starter. Over 50 levels to play including; addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, matching fractions and decimals and converting between measurements.
|Addition - Digit Drag||
Drag the digits to make a given sum. Lots of choice over level. A great starter activity for discussions on place value, mental methods of calculations and problem solving.
|Bubble Pop - Multiplication||
A fun way to help children learn their multiplication tables. Choose which times tables to practise and then try and pop all the bubbles before your time is up. Try and make the target number (at the top) by shooting a multiplication bubble. So if your target is 10, and you have the x2 bubble, you will need to hit 5, as 5 x 2 = 10.
The free demo version has 10 missions to complete; the full version (for registered users) has 70 missions. The game is ideal for playing on a tablet or phone. Encourage your class to play at home and then watch their confidence and fluency grow.
An excellent tool for reinforcing an understanding of the role of the equals sign. Choose one objective, or many. You can choose all the objectives for a single year group (or multiple year groups). You can also choose to balance between different types of calculations (eg addition and multiplication).
