This is an example of a range of thinking strips we have available for maths. Great for starting a lesson on adding fractions. This could be revisited at the end of the lesson and the class could be encouraged to discuss how their original ideas differ.

Maths large numbers

Maths large numbers | Enhancing Numeracy at KS2 and KS3 | Scoop.it

This is a nice activity to allow pupils to feel safe to make mistakes and also puts the teacher in the role of learner with their pupils. You're not going to know the answers any more than the pupils are, so it's a great activity to do together, making educated guesses and discussing each other's suggestions.

Love this for maths in the real world. These could be used as a quick starter to a lesson. Maybe you could then move on to Supermarket dash after this??

Word of warning - Only use this on the IWB - dont let the pupils have access to this on their computers as Ive spotted some choice comments beneath a couple of the photos.
