Question

In our practice zones, you get the chance to practice your math skills online with instant feedback.

Once you have done a timed quiz, you can see your results and print out your achievements.

The achievement levels are based on the percentage correct and the time taken.

- Gold awards are for outstanding achievement: 94% or higher;
- Silver awards represent very good acheivement: 85% or above;
- Bronze awards represent good achievement: 70% or above.

As well as the percentage of questions answered correctly, the awards are also dependent on the time taken to answer the questions!

These quizzes are great for...

- benchmarking against future progress or setting targets;
- class competitions;
- assessing specific mental calculation skills.

The quizzes can also be tailored to the specific skills that you want to develop.

You can set each quiz to Individual or Class/Group mode.

Individual Mode

When working in Individual Mode, you can:

- change the settings between each game to tailor them to your needs;
- click the Results button to see which questions you got right, and what your mistakes were;
- print out your results to show what you have achieved, and to try to beat your score next time.

Class/Group Mode

When working in Group mode, you can:

- view the top 3 scores for your group;
- click on the Results button to see all the scores for your group;
- sort the results easily so that you can see who has achieved the learning objective and who needs more practice or support;
- click on the Reset button to get ready for the next player;
- clear all the scores and settings by refreshing the page.

In Group Mode, you cannot see how you answered each individual question - you can only see the results for you group.

In Group Mode the settings are locked to prevent any tampering.

If you wish to change the settings, then refresh the page in your browser - you will lose all your data when this happens!

Place Value Practice

In our Math Place Value Practice area, you can practice your place value skills, adding thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. You can even use this area for adding on decimals: tenths and hundredths.

You can select the numbers you want to practice with, and print out your results when you have finished.

You can also use the practice zone for benchmarking your performance, or using it with a group of children to gauge progress.

Rounding Numbers

Are you needing to round numbers to the nearest 10,100 or 1000?

Need help rounding to 2dp?

Wanting to round to 3 significant figures and don't know how?

This page will help you understand all about rounding!

Rounding numbers to the nearest 10

When you are rounding a number to the nearest 10, you are trying to find out which multiple of 10 your number is closest to.

The golden rule with rounding is that if a number is exactly halfway between two multiples of 10, you always round up.

Rounding numbers to the nearest 100

When you are rounding a number to the nearest 100, you are trying to find out which multiple of 100 your number is closest to.

Rounding numbers to the nearest 1000

When you are rounding a number to the nearest 1000, you are trying to find out which multiple of 1000 your number is closest to.

Rounding Decimals

When you are rounding decimals, you will either be rounding to the nearest whole number, or you will be rounding to a given number of decimal places or significant figures.

Rounding numbers to Significant Figures

Rounding to significant figures is different from rounding to decimal places.

The first significant figure is the first non-zero digit a number has.

The second significant figure is the digit after the 1st significant figure.

The third significant figure is the digit after the 2nd significant figure, and so on.

See below for help to round a number to a set number of significant figures.
