Arrange the given statements in groups to show whether they are always true, sometimes true or false.
Angles in a triangle add up to 180^{o}
x + 5 = 10
A shape with four sides is a rectangle.
The radius is equal to the diameter
x + 5 = 5  x
5 รท x = x
x^{2} > x
An angle greater than 90^{o} is obtuse

Comment recorded on the 1 February 'Starter of the Day' page by M Chant, Chase Lane School Harwich: "My year five children look forward to their daily challenge and enjoy the problems as much as I do. A great resource  thanks a million." Comment recorded on the 24 May 'Starter of the Day' page by Ruth Seward, Hagley Park Sports College: "Find the starters wonderful; students enjoy them and often want to use the idea generated by the starter in other parts of the lesson. Keep up the good work" 


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 MathsLearning 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.

"True or False Level 3 has a lot of ambiguous statements that could be true, false or sometimes be true! For example, the external angles of a REGULAR hexagon are all 60 degrees each making the statement true wheras in the case of an IRREGULAR hexagon, this is not the case necessarily  making the 'sometimes option' applicable. Could you post the solution to this please as I'm pulling my hair out (what little I still have)! Many thanks. Steve Eastop, Margate, Kent, UK
