--- KEY THINGS TO KNOW ---
Every aspect of the Maths White Board site is built around 3 things:
Each topic area has been broken up into roughly 6 differentiated concepts to facilitate a greater level of support or challenge for a learner.
Each topic has been structured in such a way to lead a user through a desirable teaching sequence or learning journey.
The site has been built with a topic bank at it's core not a question bank. The main aim is for you to never encounter the same question twice.
--- SHAPED BY RESEARCH ---
Below are 3 activities contained in the Maths White Board site born out of research:
Mini White Board activity
A powerful tool to support the use of mini whiteboards during classroom assessment. This part of the website produces a question for a specific topic and displays it full screen for clear viewing. Whilst using this tool, you have access to each of the differentiated levels (stars) and the answers are available for each question providing ease of use. You can generate new questions (but with different numbers) at any level with a simple click of a levelled button. No longer are you limited by the number of questions in an exercise to assess students whilst also being driven to master a specific skill. This tool is available under the main menu of the software and titled "Mini WB".
Recall White Board
Ideal for recapping on the full breadth of a specific skill (starters/revision). The site will produce a question at each of the differentiated levels and arrange them on screen for students to complete. You can then model the appropriate method before selecting the question to reveal the answer. If another question at the same level is required, select the refresh button to generate a new question but with different numbers. Endless opportunities to revise all aspects of a key topic skill over a sequence of lessons. This tool is available under the main menu of the software and titled "Recall WB".
Secure White Board
In order for techniques to be cemented into long term memory, sometimes we need to just give students a few similar questions for them to learn routines. The idea behind this aspect of the site is for students to practice so they learn not to make mistakes. The site will produce 6 questions at any chosen differentiated level and arrange them on screen. Not only will this tool help students to become familiar with techniques, it will also reduce the cost of printing unnecessary 1 time worksheets for classroom based activities. This tool is available under a selected and levelled MWB activity and titled "Secure WB".
