KS2 SATs Maths Reasoning Practice Paper 2 (STA-style formatting)

KS2 SATs Maths Reasoning Practice Paper 2 (STA-style formatting)

Something to help your class / school / child to practise for the KS2 (Key Stage Two) SATs for mathematics, especially reasoning - can be used alongside a 2017 Gaps Analysis spreadsheet as questions follow the 2017 Paper precisely. The paper is also formatted similarly to the STA’s formatting to allow children to become familiar and confident in approaching assessment / testing.

Introduction to Ratio - a full lesson

Introduction to Ratio - a full lesson

Mastery maths. The slides can be used on whiteboards to prompt the route the lesson takes. The video explains how I would teach the lesson including relevant questions to ask etc. The focus is on understanding of the key concepts of equivalent ratios and what a ratio is. Loads of scope for extending and making this your own. Hope you find it useful.

Fraction, Ratio and % Reasoning Tasks

Fraction, Ratio and % Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on an Edexcel GCSE question about fractions, ratio and percentages of an amount. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include different ways to calculate and compare fractions, percentages and ratios of an amount. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. The Venn diagram task is an excellent idea I swiped from the amazing Mr Barton. If you’d like some tasks with more of a fraction focus, try this resource: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/fraction-division-reasoning-tasks-11837638. Alternatively, for percentages - particularly increase, decrease and reverse percentages - take a look at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/percentage-change-reasoning-tasks-11838369. Please consider leaving some feedback. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!

Algebraic Area Reasoning Tasks

Algebraic Area Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on a WJEC GCSE question about forming and solving a quadratic equation for the area of two rectangles. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include forming expressions for various areas and perimeters, expressing proportional relationships, numerical and algebraic ratio tables and identifying reasonable assumptions. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Thanks to JustMaths for the collection of exam questions by topic where I found the original question. A similar set of tasks on a different application of quadratic expressions can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/probability-reasoning-tasks-11839057 and there is a more numerical approach to compound area in these tasks: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/compound-area-reasoning-tasks-11838514 All feedback very welcome. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!

Compound Area Reasoning Tasks

Compound Area Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on an Edexcel GCSE question about compound area, including circles and a functional element. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include work on proportional reasoning, unit conversions (including units of area), error intervals, area of circles and non-circle compound area. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Thanks to the awesome Mr Barton for the Venn diagram templates. For a similar set of tasks which focus on algebraic expressions for area and perimeter, take a look at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/algebraic-area-reasoning-tasks-11838759 All feedback very welcome.

Problem Solving Lesson - Who Wrote This?

Problem Solving Lesson - Who Wrote This?

This lesson encourages students to use Maths that they know to try to solve a real world problem: Who wrote an anonymous document. The lesson is set up as an intriguing mystery and is solved in small groups, your students should be hooked from the start. There are many mathematical skills which students can employ to solve the mystery, and as students have the choice, there is natural differentiation baked in to this rich task. The powerpoint does suggest two possible avenues for students who struggle to come up with an idea. These use: averages relative frequency One extra note - this lesson is best used with larger classes, as no single technique is particularly accurate in isolation. The magic happens when each group compares their results and their combined solution becomes a lot more convincing.

Speed and Fuel Economy Reasoning Tasks

Speed and Fuel Economy Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on a WJEC Eduqas GCSE question about average speed and petrol costs. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include work on proportional reasoning (direct and inverse), metric to imperial unit conversions, units of time conversions, average speed and fuel economy. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Thanks to JustMaths for the exam question by topic packs where I found the original question.

Fraction Division Reasoning Tasks

Fraction Division Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on an adapted AQA GCSE question about dividing fractions. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include work on proportional reasoning, unit conversions, ratio tables, multiplying and dividing fractions. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Full credit to the awesome Mr Barton for the Venn diagram template, and JustMaths for collating the exam questions by topic packs where I originally found the question.
