Missing Numbers
The below QQI Relay © shows one question at a time, and to proceed to the next question, you need to answer the current one correctly. Decide how many questions you want (you can always finish early if need be).
Then choose the attributes for the questions that will appear.
Choose which operation you would like to appear in the questions, or choose Random for a mixture of different questions.
Under Type, choose which part of the sum you want to be missing and hence you have to work out. Again, choosing Random will give a mixture of the different types.
Choose the minimum and maximum values (set minimum to a negative number to include negative number questions).
Do you want the bigger number to come first (ensuring positive answers for subtractions) and should divisions give whole number answers.
Finally, if you want all the addition questions to be related to a final answer, type in the number bond (if 10, all questions generated will add to 10) and if you want all multiplcation and division questiosn to be related to a specific timestable, then input that.
You might need these symbols if you choose to have the sign being the thing to work out: +×÷.
When the questions appear, type your answer in the boxand click Check Answer to see if you are right. If correct, move on to the next question.

Ideas for Teachers
This activity requires each pupil to have access to a computer or other internet enabled device. They will each get a different random set of questions, and at the end you can see how they did in the results table. This is great for spicing up an activity as it adds an element of competition to the work.
Get them to set a high number of questions, such as 100, and then get students to answer as many as possible in 5 or 10 minutes. Have a prize for the one with the highest point score (awarding accuracy and speed).
