5 Bits of Advice About: Making Maths resources

  1. Find out what your pupils are into and bring that into the resource, either built into the question or just with random pictures dotted about. This gives engagement a little boost.
  2. Make use of excel random number generators and formulae to create and answer questions for you. =”What is the area of a circle with a radius of ” & randbetween(2,10)&”cm?”
  3. If you’ve spent time making a powerpoint, write some questions on the end, not page 57. You may move school and page 57 is meaningless.
  4. Take time to make a nice example slide (include animations) copy this 4 or 5 times. You may not need all examples but it won’t take long to change the numbers.
  5. Keep all nice starter or plenary slides together in one file so you can find them quickly to paste them into a new project.
