Handy! Lots of units of measurement I wasn’t aware of on here.



5 Minute Fillers – Measure

I wrote a selection of PPoint slides for a range of topics last year. The slides each contain questions and often video links to news topics. They’re intended as 5 minute fillers – breaks from a main lesson task.

Running the Distance – Super Mario


This article on the mental floss website discusses the distance Super Mario had to walk to get to Princess Peach in the game called … Super Mario. Within the article are links to super mario maps, (also Zelda, GTA and Doom maps!!) and the maths to figure out the distance is pretty straight forward. You could easily pinch a few maps and do your own investigations into scale, distance etc with a very obvious narrative to engage students.
