Quick maths quizzes

Below is a quick quiz for the start of a Maths lesson, consolidating the main message of the previous week’s session. This will copy/paste into Word from MS Internet Explorer. I use paste | special, and select the Formatted Text (RTF) option to get rid of the font I happen to be using on this page, the superscripts are preserved. I’m going to try to follow each of these up with a hotpotatoes quiz as well for online work between lessons.

This quiz covers tables, powers, integers, natural numbers, prime numbers, adding and subtracting money, finding factors. I always teach the ‘multiplication pairs’ way of finding factors.
