#### The right tools for the job

iMaths 1/6/20

Enhance your maths lessons using the four interactive tools available at iMaths Online: Number Line, Hundred Board, Clock and Spinner. The Tools are available in the menu bar at iMaths Online and at the student site.

##### Number Line

Use the Number Line to add and subtract a range of intervals as either fractions or decimals.

Tip: Teach negative numbers with the Number Line. Start at zero and jump backwards and forwards by 2s, 5s and 10s.

##### Hundred Board⁠

Use the Hundred Board to teach your students place value, number patterns, skip counting, prime numbers, addition, subtraction and so much more.

Tip: Play Roll to 100 with the Hundred Board. Roll a pair of 10-sided dice (0–9), then join the numbers together to make a one- or two-digit number. Use the highlight function to ‘cross’ them off the board until you reach 100.⁠

##### Clock⁠

Move the hands of the Clock to show 12-hour, 24-hour, analog and digital time.

Tip: Check students’ understanding of time by having them display selected times using the Clock.

##### Spinner⁠

Use the Spinner to teach probability, customising the number of segments and segment features (colours, letters and numbers) to suit your lesson.

Tip: Play Heads or Tails with the Spinner. Customise the segments for a 50-50 chance and have students call heads (red segment) or tails (green segment) on a spin. If the spinner lands on red (heads), all students who called tails (green) are out. The game continues until there’s only one player left.
