The Complaint:
10. They’re always giving us new stuff.
The Cause :
Maths does have new topics, but not that often. Maths tends to go over and over old topics before adding new material. Students can feel overwhelmed simply because they are not paying attention. They are talking, texting, complaining, graffiting …etc. (See below)

Every day is like the reverse of Groundhog Day. Everything looks new again … new again … new again because they didn’t learn anything yesterday.

Here is the challenge for students: I Dare You To Watch This Entire Video
Really. Can students make it through this video without talking, texting, annoying someone ….? The video is funny and too true.

Video Link here

The Solution:
Start paying attention. Maths will make more sense.

Tell your year 8 or 9 students this test is designed to test their ability to concentrate and use logic while doing a challenging test under pressure.

Tell students to circle the ‘correct’ answer. Then wait to see how long it takes them to think you have totally lost the plot! You can make copies of the test using the PDF links below. You can put the answers up later on the smart board.

Mathspig spends some time on trains looking at nearby phone HOTSPOT names, so she went out looking for some fun mathsy WIFI names.

Surely,

IT = nerd behaviour = mathsy fun

SHOCK! HORROR! OUTRAGE!
Mathspig searched for days online. She only found 1, ONE, UNO, SINGULARITY, THE LONELIEST No., one vaguely mathsy WIFI funny (below).

Instead of showing WIFI maths funnies, Mathspig came up with a great MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHS WIFI CHALLENGE.

MIDDLE SCHOOL MATHS
WIFI CHALLENGE

SUMMARY
1. Find a test/worksheet for your class.

So you have cracked the WIFI password (above). It’s time for some Fun, Fun, Funnies.

Here are Mathspig’s favourite WIFI names:

Duracell Bunny Arrested

Charged With Battery

Get Your Own Damn Wi-Fi

FBI Surveillance Van 4

Go home tourists

And check the links at the end of this post for a little bit of weird.

Weird 1:
Google Image this number: 241543903

It leads to a meme of people posting ‘put your head in a refigerator’ selfies. Why? Dunno.

Weird 2:
Google: Definition (Defn will do) of ‘askew’.

The Google page is askew!!!! Really. What is the angle of the page below horizontal. You can work it out.
