Mathematicians are not the people who find Maths easy; they are the people who enjoy how mystifying, puzzling and hard it is. Are you a mathematician?

Comment recorded on the 24 May 'Starter of the Day' page by Ruth Seward, Hagley Park Sports College:

"Find the starters wonderful; students enjoy them and often want to use the idea generated by the starter in other parts of the lesson. Keep up the good work"

Comment recorded on the 16 March 'Starter of the Day' page by Mrs A Milton, Ysgol Ardudwy:

"I have used your starters for 3 years now and would not have a lesson without one! Fantastic way to engage the pupils at the start of a lesson."

Each month a newsletter is published containing details of the new additions to the Transum website and a new puzzle of the month.

The newsletter is then duplicated as a podcast which is available on the major delivery networks. You can listen to the podcast while you are commuting, exercising or relaxing.

#### Playing Card Maths

Imagine you are on a desert island with nothing but a pack of playing cards. Do you have to stop learning mathematics? Of course not! Here are some great ideas for teachers, parents and tutors.

There are answers to this exercise but they are available in this space to teachers, tutors and parents who have logged in to their Transum subscription on this computer.

A Transum subscription unlocks the answers to the online exercises, quizzes and puzzles. It also provides the teacher with access to quality external links on each of the Transum Topic pages and the facility to add to the collection themselves.

Subscribers can manage class lists, lesson plans and assessment data in the Class Admin application and have access to reports of the Transum Trophies earned by class members.

## Go Maths

Learning and understanding Mathematics, at every level, requires learner engagement. Mathematics is not a spectator sport. Sometimes traditional teaching fails to actively involve students. One way to address the problem is through the use of interactive activities and this web site provides many of those. The Go Maths page is an alphabetical list of free activities designed for students in Secondary/High school.

"I wrote this activity for a friend's daughter who was struggling to see the angle relationships in her school homework. I presented it to her as this self-checking digital version because if she tried the more traditional paper versions she would not get the immediate feedback the computer provides.

We did level one together. She typed in the answers in the web browser but had a laminated copy of the printed version in front of her to draw on (Great for seeing the Z shapes).

After Level 1, she was feeling more confident so we played Level 2 as a game, taking it in turns to figure out one of the angles. She was most confident with vertically opposite angles and angles in triangles. A blank sheet of paper to hide the unnecessary part of the diagram helped her spot the angles together on a straight line. At one point, using her own initiative, I found her looking in her school exercise book to remind herself about angles in quadrilaterals and pentagons.

This was one of those great teacher moments when you can see the understanding taking shape and the pride the student demonstrates when solving mathematical problems.

I hope this activity works as well for you. "

"Why are the corner angles 90? I can't see it.

[Transum: Very good question Shirley. You can't assume angles are exactly 90° just because they look like right angles. The clue here is in the text at the top of the page which says that the diagram is drawn inside a rectangle and the angles of a rectangle are 90°.]"

"Hi John,
We're so stuck on #4. Any hints?
Cheers, Rebecca.

[Transum: Glad to hear that you are having fun with Angle Chase. There is a circle involved so your clue is to have a look at Circle Theorems. Good luck, John]"

"Year 7 have been solving geometry problems this week.
Zac took about 2 hours to complete this one because he had to learn about circle theorems and parallel lines.
Independent study leads to some amazing learning."
