MAths MAte

In Term Three, everyone will be doing maths maintenance homework. We will use the Mathsmate programme. Each sheet follows the same pattern and reinforces each area of maths. There are fun problems and puzzles as well as basic practice items. [Let's see if anyone can out problem-solve Mohamed the Champion!]
Your results are recorded each week and there is a test in the middle of and at the end of term.
If it is too easy it is maintenance. If it is too difficult, think of it as a challenge and a chance to learn. We will go over problem areas in class on Fridays.
Good luck!

This looks cool! I love math problems! Hope there like Brain Teasers!

Heres one: A tennis championship is played on a knock-out basis, i.e., a player is out of the tournament when he loses a match.

(a) How many players participate in the tournament if 127 matches are totally played?

(b) How many matches are played in the tournament if 100 players totally participate?

i love the math mate because it is really easy and fun rather than some of the maths that we do at school

Mr Woody said...

thanks for the feedback ash - why is it more fun?

Maths Mate is the only fun kind of maths!

I think that the maths mate thing is really fun i finished it on like the first night we got it the thing i think is that it should be made a little arder so that it is a little more challenging and so that it lasts us the whole week.

i agree with bob marley it is not very hard because it only took me a few minutes. they should have more problem solving questions. there is so many sheets so is it hard on the last sheet?

dan said...

there should be questions like the ones paradise man made because they make you think but they might me a bit hard

Mr Woody said...

i agree with you guys - you can be the maths homwework design team if you like.

Maths Mate is fun, gets your brain ticking on the brain teasers and you go over the basics.
