Default Maths home education resources

Please use this sticky thread to post links to resources you have found useful for Maths. It would be helpful if you could add comments regarding age and stage suitability.

Default Dimensions - beyond 3. For teens?

http://www.dimensions-math.org/

Quote:
A walk through mathematics! A film for a wide audience!

Nine chapters, two hours of maths, that take you gradually up to the fourth dimension. Mathematical vertigo guaranteed! Background information on every chapter.

Default Timez attack - Learn to multiply via a game

http://www.bigbrainz.com/

Not used this one. Seems too much of a game to me, but games orientated kids might like it.

I am sure most will know about this but J has been using BBC bitesize for the last week or so. He seems to like the problem solving area best. There are games, worksheets and online problems to solve. Bitesize is for both Primary and Secondary.

We find 'The Usborne Illustrated Dictionary of Maths' book very useful. It also gives internet links for each topic.

We are finding this site very useful.

The homepage gave me the impression that it was just for younger kids but it isn't

Not just an exam revision site
