12 Shapes You Didn’t Know Had Names
Such a simple game but yet so effective at improving Adding and Subtracting! Warning: Addictive! Thanks to flashmaths.co.uk for this addictive game to improve “adding” and “subtracting”. I have used it many times for low ability sets as starters and plenaries and it really gets learners engaged. The lower sets tend to be small so it is a great way to end the lesson by getting everyone to have a go. Be warned groups can get very excited when playing this, so you will need to manage the behaviour well. Such a simple game but yet so effective at improving Adding and Subtracting! Warning: Addictive!

Homer Simpson's scary maths problems Homer Simpson's scary maths problems 30 October 2013Last updated at 20:13 ET By Simon Singh Science writer For a character living in two dimensions, grasping the idea of life in 3D can be tough - especially if the character in question is Homer Simpson. But one Halloween episode of The Simpsons forces him to confront the concept, and gives viewers a mathematical workout too. Eighteen years ago, the writers of The Simpsons celebrated Halloween with one of their traditional Treehouse of Horror episodes, which included three short stories. After Attack of the 50-Foot Eyesores and Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace, viewers were treated to Homer³, which contains the most intense five minutes of mathematics ever to appear on prime time television. For many people, mathematics is more terrifying than being attacked by an army of zombies, werewolves and vampires, but in this case the various equations were included because the writer of Homer³, David S Cohen, is a fan of numbers.

Shapes that tessellate Shapes that tessellate Index --- grids --- squares (examples) --- triangles (examples) --- Escher-style (examples) --- for teachers Triangles, squares and hexagons are the only regular shapes which tessellate by themselves. You can have other tessellations of regular shapes if you use more than one type of shape. You can even tessellate pentagons, but they won't be regular ones. Tessellations can be used for tile patterns or in patchwork quilts!

Squaring two digit numbers in your head Squaring two digit numbers in your head All my life I've done mental arithmetic the 'wrong way': I've calculated from left-to-right, instead of right-to-left. So when I do something like 24 + 35 I'll see the 50 first and then the 9 . This even applies when there's a carry and I'll do something like 36 + 56 as 80 + 12 . I do the same thing for multiplication as well.
Mathematical mysteries: Hailstone sequences Mathematical mysteries: Hailstone sequences January 1997 This problem is easy to describe but it is one of mathematics' unsolved problems. Starting with any positive integer n, form a sequence in the following way: If n is even, divide it by 2 to give n' = n/2. If n is odd, multiply it by 3 and add 1 to give n' = 3n + 1. Then take n' as the new starting number and repeat the process.
Addition Trick | Dr Mike's Math Games for Kids I must have been in about fourth or fifth grade. I was visiting my grandparents, when my uncle got out a pen and paper, saying he had a math trick to show me. He explained that by magic he could predict in advance what the result of an addition sum would be. Now, I know it wasn't magic at all, but by the end of the trick, it certainly seemed magical. Here's how it worked. Addition Trick | Dr Mike's Math Games for Kids
