Every teacher enjoys a class where their pupils are engaged, having fun but most importantly, learning! To ensure learning has taken place, as teachers, we generally give our pupils an exam and grade their responses. But the best way to check their learning, is by having an immediate response. This can be completed in class through student responses, feedback and participation. A student who is struggling with the content of the lesson will not be able to take part in the learning, therefore a barrier is created, preventing the pupil from success. An effective way to measure the success of the lesson is by how involved the pupils are. Below are some tips to help student participation in class.
I strongly believe in encouraging kids to attempt math tasks that are challenging. but fun. Math Quests are a great way to do that in the classroom or at home.

So, what are Math Quests used for in the classroom? In this post, I aim to outline multiple ways these easy prep printables can be used as part of your curriculum.
Adding some fun background music while completing a math or reading mystery can create a positive working atmosphere in the classroom. Your student detectives will feel more immersed in the mystery task and, hopefully, be more motivated to persevere through the more challenging questions and puzzles. Like a workout, the type of music you choose to go with the rhythm of the activity is important. So, in this blog post, I've rounded up some music track suggestions, from YouTube, for you to readily find and play when doing a mystery activity at home or in the classroom.
