Numbers= & programs for smartboards Number, Problem Solving A mathematical based puzzle for IWB, iPad and Android that requires some careful numeracy thinking and some informed trial and error. When the resource opens you will see that both multiplication calculations give the same result of 3634. The highest number that can be the answer for both calculations using each of the nine digits once is 5568. The challenge is to arrange the numbers until both calculations equal 5568. The resource will take care of the calculating but the player will have to think hard about the results of multiplication to make progress. Tap one tile and then another to swap them. The resource requires a modern browser and will work on all platforms. Go to math puzzle. Investigations, Number, Problem Solving This resource was inspired by the Puzzle of the Month in the always informative newsletter by Andrew Jeffrey, also on twitter as @AJMagicMessage.

Powerful Images to Give Lessons Punch One of the benefits of having an Interactive Whiteboard in the classroom (or even just a data projector) is the opportunity to display full colour high quality images instead of grainy acetates or posters. With a powerful image you can really add some “punch” to your lesson. Put images up while students are coming into the room – use them as part of a lesson starter – stimulate questions. What is going on here? The Big Picture One of my favourite sites for these kind of inspirational images is The Big Picture from the Boston Times. Here is just a selection of the great images that you could use in different curriculum areas: For Science; Mercury Images, Robots, Hubble Images, International Space Station, Earth and Environment, Animals, Zoos, Swine Flu.

This site contains hundreds of quality interactive resources for children aged 4 to 11. For my U.S. readers, the activities are organized into three age groups: The Early Years (age 4 to 5), Key Stage 1 (age 6 to 7), and Key Stage 2 (age 8 to 11). Within each age group the activities are organized by subject area. The basic subject areas include Math, Science, History, and Literacy. Spanish, and even Design & Technology. The resources contained on this site are all interactive and very few of them require keyboard input. of the activities only require students to touch or drag objects. I've included a few screen shots but the best way to find what your looking for is to browse around and play with the activities. Sharing is Caring!
