Printing Troubleshooting
When printing pdf files of posters to certain printers, some problems have been found to occur.
One remedy is to locate any "Advanced Printing" options and select "Print as Image" if you can.
Also, do not have your pdf viewing software reduce the image to fit printer margins - there is already sufficient blank space around the edges for this not to be a concern.

Download the first 41 Posters as SMARTBoard Notebook [1.6Mb]
You can download the full collection of posters using the above links, or you can download individual posters from the Gallery. Both Colour and Black and White versions are available.
One way to use them is to print them off A4 size, enlarge photocopy to A3 coloured card, laminate and then display them on walls. If you can colour print to A3 coloured paper or card, then that is even better.
Have your students try and find the mistake in each poster - a great form of pre-exam revision!

   
Classic Mistake Stickers
Download Stickers [1.8Mb]
A Mistake’s not worth making unless you gain recognition for it!
Why not download this pdf file, acquire some sheets of labels for your printer (either 21 or 24 to a sheet) and have them available in class to give to students who make the mistakes. Some of the pages in the pdf file can generate 42 or 48 stickers per sheet of 21/24 stickers, by cutting the sheet along the lines shown.
You’ll be surprised how much pleasure students get from receiving one of these stickers.
Be careful not to encourage them to make mistakes though….!

The REAL Maths Problems Posters
Download Posters [1.8Mb]
These 23 posters form a collection of tongue-in-cheek posters, designed to be displayed at a jaunty angle.

Suggestion: print off A4 size, photocopy to A4 coloured card, laminate and display.
Warning: not everyone understands these at first reading ... but that’s often the best bit!

Mathematical Scaffolding
Download Poster [146Kb]
Two colour posters that complement each other. The idea behind them is that if all the ladders were already in place on the scaffolding, this is akin to 'spoonfeeding' students. It's much more fun (and beenficial) for them to make their own way through a problem, designing their own route.
