12 Days of Christmas

12 Days of Christmas

Problem solving Christmas activity - calculate how many presents are sent by 'my true love'. Two methods are suggested, but pupils can solve the problem using any method they can find. This can provide good opportunities to discuss methodical strategies, ways of recording etc. If pupils choose to calculate presents on a day-by-day basis they will have opportunities to generate quadratic and cubic sequences (triangular and tetrahedral numbers) and use these to solve the problem. There is the potential to link this to work on nth term and/or Pascal's Triangle. If pupils choose to calculate presents on an item-by-item basis they can generate linear sequences, and use these to solve the problem. The resource has three pages. Page 1 is the worksheet; pages 2 and 3 are answers, with links to directly relevant YouTube videos.

Finding patterns investigations. (Square numbers)

Finding patterns investigations. (Square numbers)

This is an investigation that my children loved it. I spread it over two lessons and the first lesson I let them try to solve it however way they wish. We started with a discussion on what makes a great mathematician and decided that finding the answer isn't what makes a great mathematician but making a start and exploring is. Some children used squared paper, multilink cubes, their Maths books, tables etc. In the second lesson I showed them how it would have been easier to look for patterns and record these using a table and introduce the word 'Systematic'. This investigation can be done even if you aren't covering square numbers. The notebook also includes hinge questions to begin the lesson to elicit children EXPLAINING their learning.

Standard Form Revision Booklet

Standard Form Revision Booklet

A booklet containing exam questions on standard form. Based on the wonderful revision booklets created by tes user a51_ufo. Page 3 contains some key information but the document setup does allow for the page to be omitted when printed if using as an assessment. I have included the mark scheme however the question numbers don't match with those in the booklet- the answers are in the same order as the booklet. The PDF mark scheme works well projected on an Interactive whiteboard for self assessment. If you find this useful, please review below or at https://www.tes.com/my-resources/reviews where you can review all of your recent downloads- it helps authors to improve the resources that they share in the future and gives teachers ideas on how to use the resources.
