Bingo!

Mathematics, Learning and Technology


I first came across Mathsbox.org.uk when looking at some resources on TES (TES requires registration but all resources are free). Games of Bingo have been a great success this year with my Year 8 class and also my Year 11 students. Each time the students have been highly motivated and asked if they could continue playing to try and achieve ‘Full House’. With Year 8 we used Bingo games for practising directed numbers and substitution in algebra; with Year 11 a Bingo game provided a great way to revise completing the square. Mathsbox is now a subscription site (good value in my opinion) but there are several samples available free. As well as the Bingo games, I like the Settlers, activities which could be given to a class immediately they enter the room for a lesson, giving a clam and productive start to a lesson.
