Last year I did the following challenge with my classes that is based on the '4 fours challenge'... http://mrcollinsmaths.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/2-0-1-3-challenge.html
Before I'd even got the chance to start thinking about this year's one I saw the following tweet:
In response to this tweet Clarissa Grandi (@c0mplexnumber) gave a link to her resource on the TES that she used last year to create her display - - > http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Yearly-Maths-BIDMAS-Challenge-interactive-display-6323177/.
I have previously used Magic Whiteboard (www.magicwhiteboard.co.uk) to create the display, but this year I thought I'd have a change as I wanted to put the display on the wall outside my room and so downloaded Clarissa's resources (they're very good).
Here's how my display looks this year...
I have posed the challenge to my KS3 classes and my top set Y10 class (my Y11s have more pressing things to be worrying about)!
I have also sent round Clarissa's ppt to the rest of our department so it is more than just my classes' challenge.
Here's how we're getting on so far...
1-10 are all done
11-20 all done too
21-30 all done too
41-50 the latter ones still to do
If you're doing the challenge too it'd be great to see how you're getting on. Tweet me @mrprcollins or comment below...
I don't know if all numbers 1-100 are achievable yet. I know there are defnitely more my classes could do. When I took my Y10 books in to mark the other day one of my students has started to go through all the numbers himself...pic to follow!
