Maths White Board

From Matt Woodfine comes Maths White Board (scroll down the home page to read more about the projects), a treasure trove of resources including:

  • Examples pairs
  • Mini whiteboard activities
  • Retrieval practice
  • Worksheet generator
  • Class share

  • Starter activities

Choose Launch MWB to access activities by topic, from here you can obtain example pairs, mini-whiteboard activities, securing exercises and retrieval practice questions.

Choosing for example Complete the square …

Note the various tools available at the bottom of the screen so you can write on any of these boards and note that it is possible to save a screenshot of your board.

It is possible to refresh the questions to create as many examples as you wish.

Looking at the home page we see there is much to explore. Choose from Teaching tools, Printables, Starters/Revision activities, Games and Cass interaction tools,

You can choose to use the question bank or create custom activities. I particularly like Last White Board under Revision Activities. Create a custom board with a question from last lesson, last week, last topic and last term.

Also under Revision Activities, you could choose a Revision White Board, with this tool you can design your own board or select from pre-made packs; as with other resources, you can select the difficulty level.

As well as the Maths White Board you can use a Blank White Board which enables you to write over other websites, this is very simple to use, simply type in the web address and you are ready to go. I tried this and loaded this website, you can see my annotation over last week’s post on the highly recommended Challenge Prompts.

This set of projects is a very valuable resource and one which Matt Woodfine is constantly adding to the question bank; you can check his progress; scroll down the screen on the home page to check the current state for each topic area. As you scroll down note too the commentary on the research which shaped three activities.
