Solve number problems and practical problems involving these ideas
|Balancing Scales g and kg||
Add weights to either pan until they are balanced. Can be used to teach addition, subtraction, partitioning, and mass, as well as developing an understanding of the equals sign.
Find the missing number to balance the calculations. 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 subtraction and division)
|Balance scales - add, move or remove a weight||
Balance the scales by adding, moving or removing a weight. A great mental starter to develop addition and subtraction skills.
|Adding Money - Digit Drag||
A challenging game in which you have to drag the digit cards to make the correct amount of money. Great for developing problem solving skills, generating 'rules' and encouraging trial and improvement.
|How much more money?||
Find the total of a set of coins and then work out how much more is needed to make a given amount. A number line is then shown to help support calculation strategies.
Includes the option of a range of international coins.
|Place Value Digit Drag||
Great as a mental starter when you are teaching place value. Encourages lots of higher order mathematical thinking. Can be extended by asking children to express the general rules that will help them to answer each question.
Drag the digits to make: the biggest possible number, or the 2nd smallest number, or the biggest odd number, or a number which is closest in value to another given number.
|Placing Numbers on a Number Line||
Drag the flag to the correct position on a number line. Lots of choice over level, including whole numbers, negative number and decimals. Can be used to teach place value, approximation skills, and reading varying scales.
Choose one type of number line or for more of a challenge you can select several. Work quickly to get more time, build your score and climb up the leaderboard.
|Fixed number of coins||
Make a given amount of money using a fixed number of coins. For example make 26p using exactly 6 coins. Encourages children to partition amounts in different way and requires higher order thinking.
|Different ways to pay||
Find different ways to make the same amount of money. Drag the coins into the till to make a given amount. Includes a choice of international currencies.
