### 03 Christmas Maths Mayhem (c)

Festive PowerPoint Presentation

CHRISTMAS POWERPOINT MATHS PRESENTATION (c).
Itâ€™s manic number mayhem in this, the third of 4 editable maths presentations for Christmas.
There are 48 maths questions in 4 blocks of 12. These are generally mental arithmetic questions although some questions test maths and number knowledge. There are also a few questions of a more fun/recreational nature.
Each of the 4 parts below have 12 coloured hyperlinked question buttons. Simply click the buttons and watch the correspondingly colour coded answer stars/squares/circles/buttons spring into action. Each button has its own distinctive sound. Thereâ€™s music too! â€œJingle Bellsâ€ and â€œWe wish you a Merry Christmasâ€ play on selective slides. The last two slides are printable questions sheets on which students can write their answers. PowerPoint XP is required as a minimum to run any of the presentations in the FESTIVE area.

PART 1: THE CHRISTMAS TREE
Answer the questions and watch the numbers cascade in and decorate the tree.

PART 2: THE SNOWMAN
Have some fun pelting â€œanswer snowballsâ€ at the snowman.

PART 3: THE STUCK SANTA
Santaâ€™s been on the minced pies a little too early and heâ€™s got stuck down the chimney and dropped the presents all over the roof. A passing number shower just adds to his problems.

PART 4: THE CHRISTMAS PUDDING
This mouth-watering Christmas pudding is just sitting there waiting to be eaten although it seems to be consumed by numbers at the moment.

Guidance on using the Festive Presentations.
Please bear in mind the following when purchasing from the Festive area:
â€¢ The questions are designed to be done mentally and calculators should not be used.
â€¢ The questions range in difficulty from level 2/3 at the beginning of block (a) to grade A/A* towards the end of block (d)
â€¢ The 36 (or 48) questions within each block increase in difficulty slightly as you work through each set of 12 questions.
â€¢ There are some easier questions scattered throughout the blocks so that everyone has a chance to get at least some correct.
â€¢ Because the questions test maths skills and knowledge as well as mental arithmetic it might be that a very bright primary student with sharp mental arithmetic skills may be able to answer a few of the questions in block (d) but would obviously not be able to answer questions on such things as irrational numbers, negative indices and trigonometry etc.

Bearing in mind the above, as a very rough guide for all presentations in the festive area the suitability is as follows:

Block (a) Questions at the start are appropriate for some young primary school children including Key Stage 1 and average ability primary students at Key Stage 2 towards the end of the block. They are also suitable for SEN and low ability students at secondary school.
Block (b) Able/very able groups in primary schools /a spread of middle groups at Key Stage 3 and 4 at secondary.
Block (c) Some middle and higher sets at secondary school at both Key Stage 3 and 4
Block (d) Top sets and some good middle sets at Key Stage 4.

Overseas Teachers
Bearing in mind the above, as a very rough guide for all presentations in the festive area the suitability is as follows:

Block (a) Suitable for a range of students from age 7 to11.
Block (b) Suitable for a range of students from age 9 to15
Block (c) Suitable for a range of students from age 11 to15.
Block (d) Suitable for the brightest students at age 14 to17.
