The challenges are randomly generated each time the page is loaded. For many of the challenges there may be more than one correct solution.

One possible solution will appear here when you are signed in to your Transum Subscription account.

Can you show whether there is only one solution or show all of the possible solutions?

Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

"Love using the Starter of the Day activities to get the students into Maths mode at the beginning of a lesson. Lots of interesting discussions and questions have arisen out of the activities.
Thanks for such a great resource!"

"I think these are great! So useful and handy, the children love them.
Could we have some on angles too please?"

Code Cracker

Code Cracker

Learn the basic techniques for cracking codes then practise them using this interactive challenge. There are three levels of difficulty and many different messages to decipher.

Numeracy

"Numeracy is a proficiency which is developed mainly in Mathematics but also in other subjects. It is more than an ability to do basic arithmetic. It involves developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures. It requires understanding of the number system, a repertoire of mathematical techniques, and an inclination and ability to solve quantitative or spatial problems in a range of contexts. Numeracy also demands understanding of the ways in which data are gathered by counting and measuring, and presented in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables."

Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths main page links to more activities designed for students in upper Secondary/High school.

"Numeracy is a skill(s) best practised regularly. Practice can become boring if it is not varied or given purpose. This activity is one example of how basic arithmetic can be presented in a way that encourages higher level thinking skills rather than just the recall of number facts. There are many other activities on this website which are designed to provide the variety that is the spice of life!"
