Overall rating 3 out of 53 (1 rating)

Last updated 01 April 2013, created 09 June 2011, viewed 4,307

A variety of maths questions where a child stands at the front and others in the class have too describe the word or object behind them without using the actual word. Encouraged children to think of mathematical vocabulary and properties.

A set of PowerPoint slides each with a mathematical word/concept (and a scary picture of Richard and Judy!) which children are encouraged to try to define and explain to the class. The words/concepts could easily be edited and adapted, if required, to suit a particular topic, and could be used effectively at the start and end of a unit of work to assess and review understanding.
