Reading Ruler and Protractor Scale

Reading Ruler and Protractor Scale

Use this to ensure students can correctly read a scale. Use the protractor one for angles and when I come to teach pie charts. Originally on “Quizdom” format, but works just as well as a powerpoint. It works best as part of a starter in the run up to the main lesson.

History of the metric system

History of the metric system

A presentation to get pupils thinking a about the origins of the metric system. There’s quite a lot of information in there, but I think its interesting so I’m going to make my pupils look at it! There are no worksheets or ‘usual’ metric questions, but I’ve put some follow up questions and possible activities in the comments boxes on each slide. Please let me know if you have any better ideas as mine are a bit lame. Most of the information is taken from Wikipedia so please let me know if you see any innacuracies!

Area of compound/composite shapes

Area of compound/composite shapes

The power point has been attached to allow for easy changes to be made and to duplicate questions with different numbers etc. Differentiated questions are attached on a printable word document. Colour coordinated for visual. From basic compound shapes of two rectangles, moving on to include parallelograms, triangles and trapeziums. Final challenge will include circles and problem solving. I laminated these cards and used mini whiteboards to take the children outside of the classroom. The worksheet is further practice and is not something I created myself, but useful for consolidation as a homework. Also differentiated.

Higher Non Calc Problem solving questions with answers, from Edexcel Problem sets

I have put together a selection of problems from the Edexcel problem solving packs 2, 3 and 4. The questions should all be suitable for the non calculator papers and include solutions. I have also included some questions that are deemed to be calculator paper questions but can be answered without a calculator to further enhance and practise problem solving skills. I printed them out on A3 sheets and allowed students to work as a group of 3 -4 to solve the problems - feedback from students was positive.
