These IWB files for the Improving Learning in Mathematics Resources were created with the help of many teacher training students, so that others would have ready-made files. You will probably want to change them, but at least all the diagrams etc are in an IWB format.

Note that the IWB files are available for ActivInspire (Flipchart files); Smart Notebook (Notebook files) and as pdf files. For the IWB files (ie not pdf) internet links to Keele courses etc will not now work. Doc and xls files should work as these are files within the IWB files.
