This is a blog created to the Etwinning Project Fun and Math. A project directed to mathematics, focused on funny and stimulating activities for children, enabling them to gain some interest and pleasure for this subject, but also explore their logical-mathematical thinking abilities and skills. With this project we intend to share challenges, problems, online games and tasks that allow children to improve their performance in Math.
Kieron has three cats. Each cat is a different weight. The first and second weigh 7kg altogether. The second and third weigh 8kg altogether. The first and 3rd weigh 11kg altogether. What is the weight of each cat?
Flashcards is a great tool to use by pupils and by teachers! At Colégio Monte Flor we are huge fans of this web 2.0 tool created by Miscrosoft. You just need a windows live/hotmail account. If you don't have it's easy to creat one.
This year, our 3rd graders have been using a lot and so we decided to create a Flashcard Deck with some funny problems you can solve during Easter Vacations!
Dear Math Fans and Partners We bring you here a very cool PowerPoint Presentation to use with Microsoft Mouse Mischief! We already posted on this blog a resource like this one before. For those who don't remember here is a brief description of what is Mouse Mischief and the link to download it.
Mouse Mischief integrates into Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, letting you insert questions, polls, and drawing activity slides into your lessons. Students can actively participate in these lessons by using their own mice to click, circle, cross out, or draw answers on the screen.
Here is the resource.
You should download Mouse Mischief first, install it on your computer and then you can download the presentation by clicking on the bottom right corner of the presentation above and then click on Download . Follow all these steps, other way you'll not be able to use the interactive presentation.
