Flash Maths Information and FAQ's

What is Flash Maths about?

Flash Maths is a collection of maths starters, games and activities designed to aid the teaching of maths in and out of the classroom.

Who made the site?

Picture of math teacher Jonathan Hall, creator of FlashMaths and MathBot.com. @StudyMaths on Twitter.

FlashMaths.co.uk is designed and maintained by Jonathan Hall, a maths teacher from Leeds, England. I also run StudyMaths.co.uk, a free GCSE maths revision site.

Why did you make this site?

As a classroom teacher, I am constantly designing and using new maths resources to aid my teaching. I wanted somewhere to keep all these resources and also allow other people to benefit from them. This site is my solution.

I have a great idea for a starter/activity/idea. Can you make it?

Yes! I am always looking new ideas so I may as well make what people want! Send me your ideas using this contact form and I'll try to make it a reality.

What's with the rating system?

Each of the activities on the site can be rated from one to five stars. Anyone who visits the site can rate each activity once. This allows more people to view the most popular resources and lets me try and improve any with a low rating!

Can I link to the resources on your site?

Yes, please feel free to link to any of the resources on this site using code such as the example below.

Please do not embed any of the flash files on your site without contacting me first.

Why the name 'Flash Maths'?

I want all the resources to be fun, colourful and educational for pupils. As all the files require flash the name 'Flash Maths' was born.

What do you use to write these starters/activities/games?

All the flash on this site is written in ActionScript using the fantastic and free FlashDevelop IDE.
