#### Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Most suitable for key stage 3. Looks at geometry in Islamic Art. Students then create their designs using either compasses (higher groups) or isometric/square grids (may be better with lower groups). Probably good for end of module/term lesson Resources in the lesson gathered from all over the place, but thought it would be useful to have in one place as a single lesson.

#### WW2 Bearings

Lesson based on saving London in the Blitz using bearings. Begins with a discussion about what the blitz was and how these planes navigated. Ends with an air raid siren as students have to race to calculate the bearing RAF planes from Manchester have to travel to London on to intercept them. Proved very popular with my Year 8 class!

#### Fortnite Bearings Fun

If you haven’t heard your students talking about Fortnite then where have you been? 45 million people play the shooter game Fortnite and I can’t stop the kids I teach from talking about it. This activity incorporates lots of different concepts: Ratios/Scales Bearings Speed, distance, time Pythagoras Area problem solving Edit and remove questions as you want. If you print at 100% the scale will be 1.5cm to 250m Otherwise you might have to give it a measure if you print to fit Also: The locations from the bearings are locations required for one of the challenges this season to get them even more engaged. Half my class have taken the work home to finish so they can gain in game rewards

#### Fortnite Battle Bearings

Worksheet created using the Fortnite map (thank you @nonbedford). The students have to get ‘within the storm’ thinking about distance, bearings and speed. The second page has a create your own challenge question. I used this with KS3 and 4, all classes enjoyed the activity. Any ideas with how it could be used please comment :D

#### Operation Bearings - Outdoor bearings activity

This is an adapted activity for practising bearings outdoors. Students are asked to use compasses on their phones to follow instructions on bearings. I had the students dropping a cone at each stage and trailing a piece of string behind them. Following correctly results in an arrow being formed on the ground, this can then lead to questioning like ‘we all started in different places, facing different ways, why are the arrows pointing the same way?’. They can then be extended to write their own instructions or story of bearings to follow. I found the original on a blog but with a photo of the worksheet, I re-wrote it, changed ‘clicks’ to ‘steps’ to work on a smaller scale and added an extension. I used this with a lower set year 9, but could also work with advanced year 7s through to weaker year 10s I think.

#### Ratios in the form 1 to n, with a World Cup twist

A complete lesson on putting ratios in the form 1 to n, and some applications of this (for scale drawing and maps). Assumes pupils have already learned how to generate equivalent ratios and simplify ratios - see my other resources for a lesson on these topics. Activities included: Starter: A set of questions to recap simplifying a ratio. Main: Examples and a quick set of questions on writing a ratio in the form 1:n A bingo activity to further consolidate the same skill. Slides/examples to show how the form 1:n is useful for creating or interpreting scale drawings and maps. A nice activity on the theme of this summer’s World Cup in Russia. Pupils (rather optimistically) look at a possible route to the final for England, and the air miles the team will amass if they get there (by measuring and interpreting a map of Russia). Plenary: A final question, also on a football theme, looking at another use for the form 1:n Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

#### Loci sticky dots activity and linked booklet

A printable set of 10 diagrams for showing loci and a supporting booklet. Designed for use after the associated constructions have already been taught. Stick these sheets up round the room/corridor. Furnish each pupil with a set of 10 sticky dots, available from all good stationers. They have to place a dot on each diagram according to the conditions given, and not in the same place as any other dot. (Rulers allowed at your discretion) When all 30(?) dots have been placed, it makes for a good discussion about the line/region that has been created. The booklet is a scaled down version of these diagrams for pupils to create the accurate versions of these loci with their knowledge of constructions. The matching cards are for those who may finish early and can have a go at interpreting contextual loci descriptions.
