Welcome to Math Playground Squashy Boxes* Here's another versatile (and often overlooked) resource. Squashy Boxes enable children to quickly generate 'random' numbers. They are a simple but effective tool for practising a range of rapid recall and mental calculation strategies. Squashy Boxes are easy to make, 'pack flat', have hundreds of uses and are easy for children to manipulate; children can also store them in their own drawers or book bags. This downloadable pdf file* includes templates for six Squashy Boxes (plus a blank template) together with extensive teacher notes and ideas for maths activities for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children. Make up the boxes as follows: 1.Print out the template onto thin card. 2.Protect with tacky-back plastic, if you wish. 3.Fold along all of the vertical lines 4.Fold into a cuboid shape and glue the final blank column (tab) behind the first. The resulting cuboid, if held gently, can be turned to show four different faces – each with a different arrangement of single digit numbers.

theconversation New research has found some teachers mark boys' primary (elementary) school maths tests more favourably than girls, impacting girls' uptake of advanced mathematics and science subjects in high school. Entrance rates into maths and science degrees at university level can also be traced back to the impacts of teachers' gender bias in primary school. Higher levels of mathematics and science education have been linked to greater employment opportunities and higher earnings, meaning a primary teacher’s attitude towards maths can have a serious impact on a child’s future success. Teachers assume boys are better at maths The researchers followed nearly 3000 students from 6th grade to the end of high school. As a measure of teacher bias, they compared school 6th grade test marks given by teachers who knew the students' sex, with external test marks for the same students, but with no identifying characteristics provided.
