Page sums website – http://www.numberloving.co.uk/#/pagesum
Last week’s Teach Brief at school was held by the Maths Faculty who introduced resources and techniques to include greater levels of numeracy in all lessons. One of the resources which caught my eye was the above website called number loving. This link provides a tool which can covert a number into a calculation. This can be used in lesson preparation by providing the page number from the text book you are using in the form of a sums which students have to work out in order to find out which page number they need to turn to. All you need to do is to enter the number of the page in the text book you are using and hey presto you have your sum! The calculation can be refreshed until you find a sum you think appropriate for your students. If you are displaying the sum directly from the website to your students, just click on the question mark to reveal the answer.
Such a great and easy to use tool!
