Time Consolidation Year 4 Summer Block 3 Reasoning and Problem Solving

This resource is aimed at Year 4 Expected and has been designed to give children the opportunity to consolidate the skills they have learned in the White Rose Maths Guidance and Examples Summer Block 3 – Time The questions are based on the ‘small steps’ that are addressed in the block, but are presented in a different way so children can work through the pack independently and demonstrate their understanding and skills. This resource is themed around organising and running a swimming pool. You can find more Reasoning and Problem Solving resources designed to be used with the White Rose Maths Guidance here

Area of a triangle trigonometry version

A complete lesson on the 1/2 absinC area rule. Doesn’t include ‘reverse’ problems (I’ve made a separate resource on this). Activities included: Starter: A set of questions on area of triangles using bh/2. Main: An area question for pupils to attempt, given two sides and the angle between them. If they spot that they can use SOH to get the perpendicular height, they have effectively ‘discovered’ the 1/2absinC rule. If they don’t spot it, then the rule can be easily explained at this point. A set of questions designed to be done as a class using mini whiteboards, progressing from identifying the correct information needed to calculate area, to standard questions, to trickier questions (see cover slide for an example). A two-page worksheet (I’d shrink and print as one page) with a similar progression in difficulty, for pupils to consolidate. Includes a suggested extension task in the comments box of the powerpoint. Plenary: A closer look at question one from the worksheet, which links to the graph of sine.

Pythagoras' Theorem Lesson with all resources (Download, Print and Teach)

Please rate and review! Time saving resource for busy teachers! You should be able to teach a lesson with hardly any preparation (mainly printing and maybe some cutting!). Students will need to know how to round to significant figures and decimal places in order to access this lesson fully. Fully differentiated objectives: Blue: Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle. Gold: Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find the length of a line segment, given the coordinates of the end-points. Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find the length of a line segment, given the coordinates of the end-points. Red: Use Pythagoras’ theorem to find lengths and areas of compound shapes This resource includes: • A PowerPoint • A differentiated Work booklet that includes self-assessment sections • 2 sets of dominos on rounding to decimal places and significant figures to use as a starter activity • Answers The PowerPoint includes the following format (watch the preview video here): • Objective and levels • A starter • A “how to teaching portion” with animated examples • And Afl mini whiteboard quiz • Plenary (with answers) Recommendations: Laminate the dominos for use again The powerpoint and booklet are currently set up for GCSE maths grades, however you can edit the grades to reflect KS3 or your own schools assessment criteria. In the word booklet if you change any grade (e.g the blue section) it should automatically change the rest of that colour into the same grade. This will take up a whole lesson at least.

Flashcards for GCSE/IGCSE Mathematics (Formula)

Memorizing formulae has never been a fun thing to do. That is exactly why these flashcards have been designed. This folder consists of three sets of flashcards, with formulae that GCSE/IGCSE students are expected to learn (Quadratic Formula, Pythagoras’ Theorem, Sine Rule, Cosine Rule, and Area of a triangle). This activity can either be done in pairs or small groups and is apt for revision. Simply spare 10 minutes of your lesson for this activity, and your students would have memorized these nauseating formulae before they even realize it!!!

An Inquiry Based Maths Project with Measure, Fractions & Data Analysis

Help the chickens escape a life of drudgery with this week long inquiry based math project focusing on animal rights. It offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge of measure, area, data analysis, fractions, ratio tables and word problems as they help: Chickens to escape a factory farm with the help of the fastest farm animals Plan and design a chicken farm, chicken coop and run using measure and fractions Research, compare and contrast data of wingspans, analyse data and record their data Build model wings based on measure and research Calculate the amount of food necessary for their chicken farm And much more! Informational text is included that the children will have to identify and use in order to solve the problems. Research will be necessary as the children have to know the various wingspans of certain birds and compare them with chickens. UK &amp; USA spelling included. It culminates in a class presentation of the facts found ,reasoning as to their plan and design of their team’s escape and new chicken coop and run. Comparing and contrasting each group’s work, helps with critical thinking too and communication skills. Wholly differentiated, ( Task B cards are less challenging) you can use it as a summative assessment tool of the skills and standards included. It can be created as a booklet or in a binder, with a front cover included, being used as a goal setting pre assessment for the children. Mix and match the pages to suit your students’ needs. I prefer to have the children work on the design pages individually before they compare their designs within a small group and work together to collaboratively create their group plan of the chicken coop &amp; run and the great escape! This inquiry based math packet is easy to print and go, perfect for an IB PYP Sharing the Planet theme and thoroughly encourages student agency throughout. I designed it for my IB PYP 4th grade class. It can be used 3rd – 5th grade too. You will find the following skills and standards ideally suited for the IB PYP Phases 3 &amp; 4 and CCSS Math for 4th and 5th grade: Number sense and base ten operations Fractions: adding Measure: using measuring tools , area &amp; perimeter Geometry: identifying polygons and angles Data analysis Make math fun, engaging and authentic! You can find many more inquiry based math projects in my store and on my blog. Enjoy! Susan Powers PYPteachingtools.com
