### March 2009

It is a well established fact that we learn far more easier when involved in a fun and playful way! If we look at the massive popularity games like soduku have achieved we need to take some time out for our learners to engage in  fun games that will also teach them to efforlessly do basic maths calculations with some logic thrown in.

One of these games are Calcudoku. “CalcuDoku are math based puzzles coupled with logic. Unlike other logic puzzles, CalcuDoku uses addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in ways which are deeper and more gratifying than anyone can imagine.”

Each puzzle consists of a grid containing blocks surrounded by bold lines. The object is to fill all empty squares so that the numbers 1 to N (where N is the number of rows or columns in the grid) appear exactly once in each row and column and the numbers in each block produce the result of the math operation shown in the top-left corner of the block. In CalcuDoku a number may be used more than once in the same block. To see how it works, try out the interactive tutorial here…or add the widget to your blog where you can play an Calcuduko which gets updated regularly.

• This is more a maths than a Ml resource but….”This is an excellent place to go if you want to understand how to complete problems in basic math, trigonometry, calculus, or algebra. Mr. McKeague is a mathematician who offers clear examples on math problems through a video. He is joined by various students who also give eamples to math problems. The videos found here have super quality and would definitely help to instruct or teach difficult math explanations. This site is free, and they offer a free subscription if you plan to use the site often. When you join, you can create playlists because a login has been created for your usage.” Thanx Dearlibrarian for pointing me to this! http://www.dearlibrarian.com

We celebrate pi day on the 14th of March (every year), so I thought I will post my pi day links here for all of us to snack on!

• Maths in Work- videos clips to help students appreciate not only the relevance of mathematics but its importance in every day life

Maths in Work has been designed to offer glimpses of the real world of work via video clips, to help students appreciate not only the relevance of mathematics but its importance in every day life. The clips feature the people who are actually ‘doing the job’ and explain some of the maths processes that they are involved with on a daily basis. There is a brief synopsis of each clip which identifies the maths topics covered, and all clips end with the simple question, “What mathematics would be involved in the work you have just watched?” The teacher is free to approach the viewing in whatever way seems appropriate to his/her circumstances.

• Mathematics education for all

Mathematics education for whom and why? The balance between “mathematics education for all” and “for high level mathematical\activity”

• Money money money

This lesson focuses on money as something you either own or owe. The lesson is organised around the context of earning an income and includes the principal message that good money management can create security and help a person work towards their future dreams. By the end of this lesson, learners will know/be able to:

• discuss the role of money in their dream/plan for the future;
• understand that money can be owned (+) or owed (-);
• discuss ways of generating an income;
• calculate basic percentages.
