The interactive Number Line at iMaths Online is the perfect tool to focus attention and ease students into a maths frame of mind. Here are just two examples of how Number Line can kickstart your Number and Algebra lessons.
Year 1, Topic NA2: Count in twos Set the intervals to twos. Select zero on the number line, then select the ‘count +’ button. As a class, count up in twos. For an extra challenge, ask the class to say ‘buzz’ for every interval of ten. For example, ‘two, four, six, eight, buzz’.
Year 5, Topic NA14: Add and regroup fractions Set the intervals to any fraction. Choose a starting point and select the ’count +’ button. As a class, count up as each fraction is added. Switch between fractions and decimals to expose the class to numbers in both forms.
