Introduce your students to calendars and dates through the use of Mangahigh’s adaptive quiz ‘Use calendars and dates’. Students will start with ‘Easy’ questions to help introduce new ideas and then move onto ‘Medium’ questions with some scaffolded support. Students then progress onto ‘Hard’ questions that really test their understanding, and the most able will move on to ‘Extreme’ questions that will challenge even the brightest students.

Curriculum-aligned activities
Read time to the nearest minute; use am, pm and 12-hour clock notation; choose units of time to measure time intervals; calculate time intervals from clocks and timetables. Use units of time (seconds, minutes, hours, days) and know the relationships between them.
Recognise the need for standard units of length, mass and capacity, choose which ones are suitable for a task, and use them to make sensible estimates in everyday situations.
Understand that volume means the number of cubes of a specific size. Count cubes or parts of cubes to find the volume, either exactly or as an estimate.
Solve problems involving speed, distance and time with the formula 'speed = distance/time' and aid of a calculator. Know the units of speed can be written in two ways (e.g. m/s and ms^-1). Solve problems involving the conversion of units e.g. expressing 1 hr 25 min as a decimal number of hours. Also solve problems without a calculator using ratio to change the question into the required solution e.g. 10m in 10 sec into a speed in km/hr.
Estimate the area of an irregular shape by counting squares.
Use and change between Metric units:- know mg, g, kg, tonnes, mm, cm, m, km, ml, cl, litres. Use and change between metric units of capacity and volume (i.e. cubic cm and ml). Know when certain measures are appropriate.
We’re loved by both teachers and students globally. Here’s the proof!
Mangahigh turns our students into “maths addicts“ who compete with each other for top scores and gold medals. And since the quizzes reward both accurate recall of knowledge and deep conceptual understanding, every hour they spent having fun makes them better mathematicians. Five stars.
I have used Mangahigh in my classroom for over 5 years. What keeps me coming back are the math games and wide range of concepts that are offered. But the best part is the fact that the kids LOVE to play it. I have students beg me to assign them Teacher Challenges! Begging for more math work? I am ok with that!!
Kids loved it; an ADHD student who has NEVER before been able to focus in the last periods of the day; he wouldn't stop till he got a medal! Absolutely phenomenal! His mother is overjoyed, and the rest of the maths staff room were gobsmacked!
