Maths Starters

These maths starters from Badger include samples from Years Seven, Nine and Ten. They were written after the launch of the Framework for teaching mathematics.

The starters cover place value in year 7 and year 10, standard index form and rounding for making estimates in year 9 and approximating for making estimates in year 10.

The starters can be used either to introduce an idea which then goes on to be that lesson’s main learning activity or they can be used to consolidate ideas before moving on to a very different objective for the rest of the lesson.

Each starter makes clear what resources are required, many of which are provided in copymaster form. Each starter includes a list of the key words included in the Framework for teaching mathematics document.
