Math-a-thon: Thursday 8th August


Broadgreen Intermediate School
                                                                                               
Math-a-thon 2013

Rationale: Basic facts results overall are low and all students
could benefit from a targeted boost.

Objective: To boost BIS students’ recall of basic facts recall within a House Competition, that hopefully will be self-motivating.

-       Math-a-thon will be the main homework focus for Weeks 1 and 2.
-       Teachers will determine students’ appropriate level and each student will take home a Basic Facts Sheet that they will endeavor to master by Thursday Week 2; the Math-a-thon competition date.
-       Each stage differentiated accordingly.
-       Teachers can allocate daily basic practice to help students prepare for the Math-a-thon competition if they wish.
-       The winning house will be awarded the Math-a-thon Trophy and points will go towards the overall House Competition.
-       Students will get house points as outlined below in the Thursday (Math-a-thon competition).
-       Copies of the Math-a-thon are available on our BIS Maths Blog.

Welcome to our BIS maths blog and our first post!


Our initial goal with our maths blog is to:
  •  create a link between home and school, so those at home can see what is going on in our classrooms.  Please leave us a comment anytime if you wish?
  • access some information as to what is being taught and expected of a Broadgreen Intermediate student 
  • and to have some fun with a variety of maths activities.

We would appreciate any feedback as to how we can improve and enhance our maths blog.  Just leave us a comment.
