Thanks for the great resources. Can I add to them? I have created a ChristMATHS advent calendar in ActivInspire, it’s interactive and includes a mathematician born on this day and a little Christmaths puzzle for each day. See what you think https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B5mCfc3BTtcOQ00zdkFVb0ZtZ2c
Alex that is wonderful, thank you- what beautiful presentation. You might want to consider uploading it to TES resources too. Let me know.
It is already there! Just passing around the Christmaths joy!
Can I watch it if I don’t have Activinspire? It sounds great.
It is possible to save an ActivInspre file as a pdf – Alex have you done that? Obviously all the links are lost but you can still see the content.
Hi Davy, please follow this link to the PDF version.
Thank you Alex. You could upload the pdf to TES resources as well?
It is a superb flipchart. How have you embedded the links into the flipchart? I love using ActiveInspire and would love to do this. Thanks Dave
Dave have you seen the ActiveInspire manual? The first entry on this search takes you to a pdf
Hi Colleen, I have only discovered your blog in the last couple of months and I think it is superb. I am still catching up with all your old posts. I wonder if I could recommend a link to some further maths resources with proven popularity linked to Christmas, written as whole school maths competitions?
Thank you – I am glad you like the blog. You mention a resource – you will notice as you read that all the resources here are completely free to use – so I don’t know if that makes any difference!
It is completely free and indeed inspired by your own WordPress blog. I wasn’t sure how best to share it! You’ll see I’m a WordPress novice but if you can offer any opinions, great. Take a glance at christmaths.wordpress.com when you get chance. Thanks Colleen.
Wonderful post! I am looking forward to taking a deeper look. Thanks for bringing a smile this holiday season. Wishing you the very best. – Mike Gorman (USA)
Thank you Mike! Wishing you a very Happy Christmas. I hope you appreciate the snow on the blog!
Especially the Nrich calendars are amazing starters – Dec 1st fits in lovely with year 10’s work on forming equation and general discussion on number of variables compared to number of equations and what that means for the solution. Will try on Wed as starter!
I couldn’t help myself and looked up almost half of December already. Feel a bit like my kids who’d like to open up all the doors on their calendar on day one and have all the treats at once 😉
Thanks again, Anja
Anja I must confess I too have been opening a lot of doors!
A timely reminder, Colleen as I am about to renter the fray at my old school on 2 weeks supply!!!
I wish you a happy couple of weeks! I do hope it goes well.
Wonderful weekend collection as always.
