    https://www.mathsisfun.com

    just came across this site when I was looking for an easy explanation of how to multiply negative numbers. looks like a very useful site for supporting maths as it gives a simple visual explanation and has links to activities and worksheets.

    Hi everyone, I'm a teacher currently working in Nepal and I'm looking for a free online translation tool, from English to Nepali and English to Tibetan. If anyone knows of anything I'd really appreciate it. I'll also come back and add some useful websites at some point, things are a little crazy busy right now!

    Many thanks x

    Cinders2001, what's Somerset Swaps and Loans? I live in Somerset normally too so could be interested...

    I have just found this thread and thought someone might find this site useful.
    We use it for maths and reading comprehension. Doing the assesment test at the beginning allowed us to see where ds1 had weaknesses in maths and the program was automatically set up to help with that. He was below grade for maths but above for reading comprehension. There is also a reading program but we don't need that.

    My son came home from school with his username and password to this site

    https://www.mathletics.com

    It's an international site developed to teach children numeracy in a fun-filled, interactive way. Children get credits for completing tasks correctly which they can then spend in a shop to buy various accessories for their avatar. They also get certficates if they achieve a certain amount of points each week. There's a table of the highest UK and international achievers day by day. The children can also connect with children in other countries to race each other.

    All in all, it's great fun. My son loves it and doesn't realise that he's learning - he thinks he's playing games!

    It is a subscription site. I don't know how much it is as the school paid, but we did subscribe to its sister site 'Spellodrome' and that was 20 pounds for a year. If the school doesn't renew the Mathletics subscription I will definitely pay for it myself as I think it's brilliant and suits my son's learning styles very well.

    This site has printable books and worksheets. I used the old site for my ds3. The original books were great for building confidence. It is best viewed in firefox.

    We've been studying the solar system and DD1 was fascinated by the idea that Pluto was "demoted" from being a planet in 2006!

    while googling for more info we found a great series on YouTube called "ask an astronomer" - short films aimed at children that explain aspects of astronomy in a simple way but without dumbing down.

    I came across this, to help children build up their speed on times tables.

    Hope it's useful to someone :)

    I read something the other day about mathletics offering membership to home educators for £10 per year. The usual price is £39.

    This is definitely something I'm looking into.

    promo code for mathletics . co . uk is homed2010 for anyone who wants it. Reduces subscription from £39 to £10 for the year i use this for my son 6 who only attends school 2hours a day and does the rest at home. He is begging to go on it and do his maths. The best part is the parent login where you can set specific parts to complete before the play the games or play online.

    If anyone knows of a promo code for spellodrome I would be grateful :)
