Twig

Twig is a fantastic resource available from your Glow launch pad:

Twig has a brilliant selection of learning materials linked to different areas of science, geography and maths:

I particularly love the films available for different learning points in maths – although these are linked to specific outcomes for the National 4 and National 5 qualifications, I think these would be a wonderful stimulus for exploring new concepts, such as place value or decimals and fractions, in primary as well as secondary classes.

I love this example, which shows how decimals are used in a photo finish to decide the winner of the race:

It would be great to hear your comments on how you have used Twig in your class!
