I have recently discovered Kahoot! which is a free quiz game that anyone can use to make interactive quizzes. Competitors compete for points using their mobile phones or tablets to enter their answers. The quicker they choose the correct answer the more points they earn. It is very competitive and certainly provides plenty of pace to a lesson. It is completely free for both teachers and students to use. To start, set up an account at http://www.getkahoot.com and begin making quizzes.

Here is my first attempt. (I edited an existing one by improving the questions to include misconceptions and added a video for the start).

Mean, Median, Mode and Range

Here are some other Maths Kahoots! Please let me know your favourites and I will add them to this list.

Here is a great phone app that will help you with your arithmetic so you don’t need to be afraid when you are faced with that non-calculator exam. It’s called Maths Tricks and shows you lots of short cuts to performing calculations and gives you endless practice to improve your speed and accuracy. Best of all it’s free!

You can find it on Google Play. I am recommending this because it is good, not because I have any connection to the app.

Ask your teacher (or somebody else) to

1.  Write down your house number.

2.  Double it.

3.  Add the number of days in a week.

4.  Multiply by 50.

5. Add your age.

6. Subtract the number of days in a year. (not a leap year)

7. Add 15

The answer is your teachers house number and their age!

Can you explain why this works?
