ptolemy.co.uk “Furbles are the shape of things to come: this software is technology at its best and well worth the money.” John Dabell, TES Magazine Furbles started life as an idea for teaching statistics in an interesting way with children from KS1 to KS3. The original version was published in 2003 online, and its popularity spread. It has been downloaded and used over 20,000 times in the last five years.

Coxhoe Primary School - Numeracy Considerable importance is attached to the children achieving and understanding mathematical processes, concepts and skills. A favourable attitude is encouraged by presenting it in an interesting and enjoyable way, allowing the children to actively participate in the learning process, thus creating a sense of achievement and confidence. There is a strong emphasis on the development of mental arithmetic and giving opportunities for pupils to use and apply mathematics in real life situations. Maths is taught through a daily Numeracy lesson which follows the principles of the Primary Numeracy Framework. In order to develop Mathematical skills some pupils may be set for this Numeracy hour and move either to the year group above for extension as More Able (MA) mathematicians or to the year group below for consolidation of skills.

Sumdog Sumdog > Sumdog's features > Games Sumdog's maths games are all free to play, whether you're at home or in school. (Why are they free?). Most of Sumdog's games are multiplayer - which means you can choose to play against other Sumdog users around the world. Although the games are all different, they all have one thing in common: you need to answer maths questions to make progress. Each game can be used to practise any of Sumdog's topics - so you never need to be bored while practising your maths! Phonics games Phonics games will help your child to practise sounding out words, which will help them to read. Initially, children will learn basic letter sounds, such as "c-a-t" for "cat". Later they will move on to sounds such as "th", "sh" and "ch", then "oo", "oa" and so on. Once they recognise a few basic letter sounds, they will be able to work out what a written word says for themselves, a skill which they will be very proud to show off! Follow the links below to the free phonics games. Your child will have lots of fun while developing their phonic knowledge and skills.

New IBM App Presents Nearly 1,000 Years of Math History Math nerds and historians, it’s time to get excited. Minds of Modern Mathematics, a new iPad app released Thursday by IBM, presents an interactive timeline of the history of mathematics and its impact on society from 1000 to 1960. The app is based on an original, 50-foot-long “Men of Modern Mathematics” installation created in 1964 by Charles and Ray Eames. Minds of Modern Mathematics users can view a digitized version of the original infographic as well as browse through an interactive timeline with more than 500 biographies, math milestones and images of relevant artifacts. IBM hopes that classes and students will use the app, provoking more people to pursue math, science or technology-related educations and jobs.
