IWB Maths
IWB Maths now includes some ideas and resources for primary pupils. The interactive resources section is now subsciption only but previews of the resources avaliable can be seen by non subscribers. Subscription costs £50 per year per school and allows us to maintain the development of IWBMaths.

IWB Maths training
IWB mathematics training website for secondary mathematics. New material added regularly throughout the year.
