I have had a few requests for different ideas for maths starters.

There is a lovely website that provides a different maths starter for each day of the year. You can search the archives and it works very well with a data projector:

Here are some more nice sites with lots of ideas for mental starters:

Teaching ideas


Mr Gallinagh’s Maths Starters – an excellent program of 10 questions for any topic you like. You can specify how much time you give for each of the questions. Can also be used as a test at the end of a lesson to find out how much pupils have learned.

Super Maths World – some of the games are for free. Others you need to be registered to use.

I love Maths Games – puzzles, games and starters

Calculator Activites – 15 short problems and games designed to make use of a calculator. Ideal for lesson starters. 

If you come across any other good sites with starters on, please post them as comments below this post. Thanks a lot!
