Missing Numbers
The below QuickQuestion Interface © generates 10 questions where you must identify the missing number.
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: +×÷.

Ideas for Teachers
This is a good alternative to the QQI activity, if you just want to put 10 questions on the board. Then you can get answers from students to enter in the boxes before checking them, and correcting as necessary.
However, the real power in this activity is when you get the students using it themselves. In a computer lesson, set them all going on the activity, and get them to repeat until they get every question correct.
Or you can set it as a homework, telling them the conditions to use (different conditions for different students to differentiate the homework). Then get them to do one or two sets, all correct, and to take a screen shot and either email it to you, or, even better, stick it in their books. Since the questions are random, every student will get a different set of questions, and the immediate feedback means they can go back and correct their work straight away.
