# QWERTY Math uses KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

# There are 10 math questions

## (pdf version and pdf ans below).

**The boxed sections are keyboard math symbol shortcuts.**

**When the students push these keys the Qs finally make sense. **

**eg. option v = square root sign**

**BUT:**

### 1. They must have a computer with a KEYBOARD (not a tablet)

### 2. The computer must be a MAC*

### *Mathspig tried to find the QWERTY Math shortcuts on her old PC and it went crazy!!!!

**Albert Digital Mathematical clocks are fascinating. **

**You calculate the time using +, -, x and ÷ . Such fun and ideal for the math classroom.**

**Mathspig found the Albert Mathematical clock at the Horsham International Hotel (below). **

**More info on the Albert Digital Clock here.**

**You can set the level of difficulty. You get 1 minute to work out the answer and that’s long enough.**
