Are you after a different way to help your students revise math facts? Then I have just the idea for you.
Flow Chart Sums
Flow chart sums are fantastic to use as maths revision and can include any type of math content that you think your students need to revise. Essentially, flow chart sums are a diagram that includes arrows connecting to questions relating to math problems. Students follow the arrows according to the answers they receive. I have an example of one below.
Some questions that you can also ask your students after they complete the flow chart include:
- What if you throw the dice again? Will the answer be the same when you get to ‘stop’?
- What makes this hard/easy for you?
- Focus in on specific parts of the flow chart, e.g.: how do you find a 1/3 of a number?
- Will you have a different answer to other students in the class?
- How did you find the answer to specific parts of the flow chart?
When your students have had a go at completing a flow chart sum, why not then get them to create some of their own.
