The BETT Awards are an important way of identifying and recognising high-quality ICT products for the benefit of both developers and educational practitioners.
The valuable partnership between Becta, BESA, EMAP and EC&T represents a commitment to providing practitioners with clear advice and guidance to assist them in their purchasing decisions.

The Quality criteria designated for the 14 categories of the BETT Awards 2006 reflect co-ordinated and ongoing work across Becta to create a Quality Framework for ICT resources.

By setting out the Quality Criteria in this way, the BETT Awards partners are stating that particular aspects of a product or service are key to recognising high quality. These resources can be celebrated as exemplars.

In collaboration with Intel® and The Mathematical Association, the Mathematical Toolkit and Number line have been designed specifically to support the teaching and learning of mathematics for pupils at Key Stage 3.

Number Line
  • The Number line tool offers a dynamic environment in which teachers and pupils can explore numbers and relationships between them. 
  • The 2D Shapes tool allows the teacher or pupil to create 2-D geometric objects on a co-ordinate grid of a specified scale.
  • Coordinates and graphing allows the user to create graphs on a specified set of axes by a mouse click or a tap on an interactive whiteboard.
  • The charting tool enables lists of data to be input and a range of statistical graphs plotted.
