I hope you find www.smashmaths.com.au useful.
I’ve been a full time teacher in Australia (all over the place) and overseas for around 25 years (yes, that IS a lot of yard duties and roll calling!).
The idea for www.smashmaths.com.au occurred to me as my teaching partner at the time, the fabulous Ms M, and l, were trawling through the net looking for something to reinforce a concept we were teaching. My next thought was…
'Wouldn’t it be great if all that searching for interactive learning objects could be organised for all of us to use?'
It would save us all oodles of time (who has time in a school?!) and we could pick and choose activities rather than scramble for whatever we found in the miniscule amount of time we had to find it.
So I’ve come up with www.smashmaths.com.au
Learning objects to consolidate mathematics in our classrooms (and at home) are categorised by topic and ordered according to year level.
If you happen to be doing ‘Symmetry’ make sure you look at ‘Symmetry Artist’ in ‘SHAPE’ in Year 5– it’s fantastic fun!
Any suggestions? Please feel free to contact me:
