A set of lesson ideas and activities where ICT is used to explore topics in Number.

ICT has many applications in Number. Calculators are obviously an important example of the capacity of ICT to speed up some mathematical processes, but it is important that pupils should not become over-reliant on calculators and lose a sense of the magnitude and appropriateness of a solution to a problem.

The activities included within this section are aimed at encouraging pupils to deepen their understanding of these fundamental mathematical processes by exploring how they work through discussion. Many activities work on the principle of 'hide and reveal', where there is a need to predict an answer and explain the reasoning behind it.
