What Was The Question? - Ratio and Proportion Special

What Was The Question? - Ratio and Proportion Special

Four sets of four problems where students have the answer but there are blanks in the questions which require filling in. This is designed to create discussion in class and hopefully provided natural differentiation (stretch the “top end” by finding the general solution where possible compared to finding a single solution). I will be using these as starters or plenaries as I believe they will develop deeper understanding of topics, but feel free to use them as you like (you will as you don’t need me to hold your hand).

Distance Speed Time - Two Part Journeys

Distance Speed Time - Two Part Journeys

Warm Up If a single journey is split into two parts then we have distances, speeds and times associated with each part of the journey but also for the journey as a whole. The early problems involve all 9 measures (3 distances, 3 speeds and 3 times) but only 4 are given. Students must fill in the remaining 5. Main Investigation The later questions require students to think about the connection between all 9 measures in more generality. Other details Read the file labelled Read Me first!

Maths Problem How much does it cost to make a bacon sandwich?

Maths Problem How much does it cost to make a bacon sandwich?

A one lesson long maths problem devoted to answering this question. Differentiated to 4 levels and including a further extension. For the easiest it leads learners through the problems step by step. Moving to the most difficult where they will have to research the costs and work out how to calculate the cost independently. The extension task calls for students to present how and why their method works as well as consider how the problem changes if new ingredients are added. Because I work in a Special School we have access to a kitchen so I have been able to link this with life skills work on preparing food and to vocational learning about setting up and running a cafe. We have also been able to make sandwiches which has been very motivational. More problems like this to follow. A little tweaking may be needed for learners who don’t eat bacon.

End of Term Games

End of Term Games

This activities are aimed at key stage 3 students but could be used as revision for students who are revising for their GCSE examination. Each round consists of four questions. Print the slides 8 to 13 on A4 paper and place one printed slide per table. Students are put into pairs (either by choice or teacher selection) and are given a copy of slide 14 and a few sheets of pieces of A4 paper. The pairs are designated a starting table and the timer (slide 2) is started. The students are then given 5 minutes to answer the four questions on that table. Once the five minutes is up the students move clockwise to the next table and start the next set of four questions and the timer of slide 3 is started. This continues until all students have completed the six tables worth of questions. The answering of the questions takes no more than 30 minutes. Students then remain at their final table, swap their answer sheet with the nearest table and the answers are produced. At this stage I go through the questions before revealing the answers. In this way the students have had a go at GCSE style foundation questions and have also seen a demonstration as to how they should have been answered. Finally, students add up their score and the highest score get a prize!

Maths World Cup Challenge - Upper KS2 / Lower KS3

In this activity, children must help a Peruvian family - The Garcia’s travel to Saransk for Peru’s first game. Their job is to find the cheapest possible route. they have four possible flight options, various hotels and ways of getting to the game. Students will work in small groups and use their mathematical knowledge (number, fractions, percentages, problem solving, division, ratio etc) to find the best option for the Garcia’s. I used this in my Year 5 class and they LOVED IT! This resource comes complete with all the props (airplane tickets, hotel list etc), teacher instructions explaining the activity and a PowerPoint which shows children the correct method and mathmatically explains it. I hope your class enjoy the activity as much as mine, please leave feedback and check out my shop for similar resources!

Dividing in a Ratio puzzle

Dividing in a Ratio puzzle

A puzzle to make the topic of dividing in ratio a little bit more interesting, inspired by a similar Don Steward task: https://donsteward.blogspot.com/2014/11/mobile-moments.html The numbers along the top of the bars tell student what ratio to divide the top number in. For example, on question 4, you should split 42 into the ratio 3:4 and put the answers in the bubbles. They should then split their answer of 24 in the ratio 1:2. Solutions are provided.

Vary and Twist: Dividing in a ratio

Vary and Twist: Dividing in a ratio

A worksheet attempting to combine Craig Barton’s ideas on variation theory (only changing one part at a time) and Dani and Hunal’s ideas around making students make choices. I’ve tried to build up to that. Maybe by trying to combine both I miss the point of each. Would love criticisms and thoughts.

Simplifying Ratio (Loop Cards)

Simplifying Ratio (Loop Cards)

I love to start one-to-one tutorials/interventions with a loop card activity. They are also excellent when working with small groups or as a starter or plenary for a whole class. To see all the available loop-card topics click 👉 tes.com/…/More Loop Cards….<hr>This particular set of cards allows students to practise cancelling down ratios into their simplest form. Note that the questions have been carefully selected so that they provide good coverage of this sub-topic and so that the opportunities for students to guess answers are minimised.<hr>Colour coding: All my loop cards are colour-coded to indicate the approximate level of the questions: KS2 – red and orange KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple<hr>Further information: In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order 😃 My favourite use of loop cards is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins). More instructions are included in the download. Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.<hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

Vary and Twist: Simplifying Ratio

Vary and Twist: Simplifying Ratio

An attempt at some variation theory This one was hard. I spent ages rearranging questions and looking at what should be added. Specifically, I had a massive dilemma when it came to introducing fractions. I was trying to point out the ways in which simplifying fractions and simplifying ratio were similar, but I’m not sure that I haven’t just led students down the wrong path thinking they’re equivalent. For instance 5 : 6 is 5/11 and 6/11, not 5/6. Hmmmm. The variations I used for section A. An example where you can use a prime divisor The opposite way around. What happens to our answer. Order is important! Half one side. 8 : 5 becomes 4 : 5 One that’s already as simple as possible. Time for some questioning? How do you know you can’t simplify it? It’s not just reducing the numbers down. Here you have to multiply up. Deals with what simple is. I have changed this from the picture to make only one number vary from the previous question. Needs a non prime divisor. This isn’t really a variation, though. It has nothing really to do with the previous questions! Again, double one side Double both. Our answer does not double! Adding a third part of the ratio. Changes the answer significantly. Doubling two parts here. Our parts don’t double in our answer! If you amend this and it works better, please let me know.

World Cup Maths Week

World Cup Maths Week

A week of maths that I have planned to run alongside the world cup. It is aimed at year 5 but could easily be adapted to suit others. It covers a range of curriculum areas such as addition, rounding, interpreting timetables etc. I have included all of the images, resources etc that I used to allow for it to be edited. The resource doesn’t upload in the present folders so the order is as follows Day 1 - Day one task and team sheet with wages Day 2 - Question one, question two and question three Day 3 - Question sheet Day 4 - Stadium overview Day 5 - Table of players SMART presentation begins each day Images aren’t required for the lessons. I have included them in case you wanted to adapt, change or completely redo the planning.

Numeracy Ninjas Skills Focus: Ratio

Numeracy Ninjas Skills Focus: Ratio

Following in the spirit of the excellent Numeracy Ninjas by William Emeny (available on TES Resources or at www.numeracyninjas.org), here are some daily intervention skills focus sheets on Ratio which I am trialling with my classes. These are available free for you to use but please respect the copyright of Numeracy Ninjas name and logo. I would really appreciate your feedback on these as I’m trying to get more of these ready. Any fine-tuning you can suggest would be a great help. In my filenaming system KS4B does not mean Key Stage 4 set B. KS means key skills and 4B means sheet number 4 in set B - the original Numeracy Ninjas intervention being set A. There are 6 pages in file. The first three pages are the student activity, the last 3 pages are the answers.

Go and Find - Recipe Proportion Revision Activity

Go and Find - Recipe Proportion Revision Activity

Another ‘Go and Find’ activity. Some of the questions are pretty difficult, best for a middle-high ability class. Give each pair of pupils an answer sheet, and they have to ‘collect’ tabs of paper from around the classroom, each with an answer on them. There aren’t enough answers for every pair to get one each, so they are competing against eachother. They lose points for incorrect answers, and there are a few red herrings to catch misconceptions. Takes a bit of set up but well worth it! Answers, pupil instructions and example of pupil work included. Can be adapted for different abilities, just be sure to change the answers on the excel document.
