Maths Circus Act 3

 

 

 

As soon as it was released, the most common response we had to Maths Circus Act 2 was a request for yet another circus.

 

Years 5 to 10

 

 

Students just couldn't get enough of the head-scratching, chin-tugging, breath-holding and exhilaration that comes with solving Maths Circus puzzles! Teachers appreciated the extra challenge offered by some of Circus 2's harder puzzles, but still wanted their younger students to enjoy the Circus programs.

Twice As Many Puzzles

As a result Greygum came up with Maths Circus Act 3, which offers twelve further puzzles, but this time there are two degrees of challenge (Basic and Advanced).

There are five Basic levels of each puzzle. These are particularly aimed at children in the first two years of schooling, but also serve as an introduction for older children.

Then there are five Advanced levels, aimed at middle and upper primary, right through to adult. The hardest of these levels will challenge children of any age.

This means Maths Circus Act 3 contains 120 individual tasks, twice the number in each of the earlier packages. Between them, they cater for the whole range of age and ability from those who find maths rather a mystery and who need a confidence boost, right through to those who need a really tricky challenge as an extension activity.

Range Of Skills

Like its predecessors, Maths Circus Act 3 provides practice and enhancement for a wide range of skills.

Spatial awareness is needed when building paths for the lions, arranging the acrobats in a pyramid, and using the fork-lift. Three-dimensional geometry is introduced in the dolphins puzzle. Practise addition and multiplication with the jugglers and the clowns. Investigate direction and angle when crossing the river, and at higher levels explores compass bearings, time and vectors in a very simple way. Controlling the elevator involves positive and negative numbers.

Several puzzles even include simple programming — planning a sequence of moves in advance, and executing them later on.

Teacher Controls And Special Needs

The software includes PDFs of worksheets that can be printed for classroom use, a hints and solutions guide, and an installation and user guide.

Teachers can control which puzzles and levels are available, and can inspect or print pupils' progress.
