Simple but brilliant Maths resources

Margaret Williams from Lakers School has produced some really great lesson starters from the question bank in her Learn your Tables authoring group (requires login).

What I really love about them is the simplicity. I tend to be always looking for how we can add features and do cool new things with Yacapaca; Margaret has reminded me that complexity is not necessary for great learning.

Anyway, here’s a sample. Have a go yourself.
