This quiz starts with entry level questions but to win a million you need to be able to solve equations and be an expert at 3d shapes! Who wants to be a mathionaire?

The Tower of Hanoi is one of the most famous mathematical puzzles. See if you can work out how to do it with 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 discs.  Then see if you can do it using the minimum number of moves.

Here’s some timetable problems. I like the use of the time-line to show students how to calculate the answer.

To compare fractions, decimals and percentages change everything to decimals first.

So to place , 0.7 and 76% in order

= 0.75  (divide the numerator by the denominator)

76% = 0.76

So the correct order, smallest first is 0.7, , 76%

Students often need to be able to compare fractions. Do you know which is bigger between and ?

means the whole has been divided into 5 equal pieces and you have one of them.

means the whole has been divided into 6 equal pieces and you have one of them.

The fraction wall shows that the larger the denominator, the smaller each piece becomes, so is greater than .

Try this exercise to choose the biggest fraction.

Numbers are often rounded to find approximate percentages. For example if 28 out of 119 ESOL students come from Eastern Europe we could round to the nearest ten, giving us 30 out of 120.

30÷120 x 100 = 25% so we can say that 28 out of 119 students is roughly 25%.

Practice approximating percentages with this quiz.
