Colour by special numbers (squares, cubes and primes)

Colour by special numbers (squares, cubes and primes)

This is a colouring sheet to get students to begin to recognise square numbers, cube numbers and prime numbers working around grades 3 and 4 of the new 1-9 mathematics GCSE. Students colour based on whether the number in each box is a square number, a cube number or a prime number. The sheet requires 3 colours per student. Due to the colouring nature of this sheet, it is very easy to see which students understand and which need support. Looks fantastic on a classroom wall once completed. Solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully received.

Practice Finding Highest Common Factor

Practice Finding Highest Common Factor

An Excel Workbook containing a spreadsheet to practice the GCSE skill of finding the Highest Common Factor when given two numbers and an associated answer sheet. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!

Higher or Lower?

Higher or Lower?

Superb starter or plenary for any maths lesson ... the children love this game! This presentation includes 8 games of 'Higher or Lower' - 2 games containing numbers in the 10 times tables - 2 games containing numbers in the 5 times tables - 2 games containing numbers in the 2 times tables - 2 games containing numbers from 1 to 10 How to play: 1. Flip over the first card. 2. Ask a child to say if they think the next card will be 'higher' or 'lower' than the card displayed. If they get the answer correct, they continue. If they get the answer wrong, start over with another child. 3. You can make each game easier by displaying all the possible numbers. Then just cross them off as they appear in the game (the children will know exactly what numbers are remaining thus increasing their chance of winning).

There are also several true/false questions for the children, so that they can apply their knowledge and understanding.

A fun maths activity for teachers who intend to give their class an easter treat such as a creme egg.
