Crack The Safe - Congruence and Similarity

Crack The Safe - Congruence and Similarity

Another “Crack The Safe” activity but on congruence and similarity this time. This enables students to self-check answers as their answer needs to appear in the options. It should generate a bit of discussion too, but the intention for me is to use these as starters or plenaries. Amended question 2.

007 Problem-solving, geometry puzzle, G&T yr7

007 Problem-solving, geometry puzzle, G&T yr7

The problem of the dropped box of matches, pt 1 “Isabella Ringing dropped a box of matches, the box opened and the matches went everywhere. As she went to pick them up she knocked some of them into different positions. This gave her an idea for some puzzles to set for her friends.” A set of six matchstick puzzles to promote problem-solving skills - part 1 of 2. Suggested that it is used alongside ‘sticks’ of some sort so that kids can physcially explore the problem. We Solve Problems is a charity, founded by three PhD mathematicians, whose aim is to promote the use of advanced mathematics within secondary schools. We want to encourage creative mathematical thinking, to develop a skill within pupils for presenting their results clearly and coherently, as well as promoting personal problem-solving skills. Visit us at wesolveproblems. org. uk. We would very much appreciate it if you could take time to follow us, and hopefully review this resource as well, as this helps others to find us. Thank you.

Mathematics Revision Mats

Mathematics Revision Mats

Please use these mats as a revision games to play in groups in the classroom. They should be printed on A3 paper and laminated so that it can be re-used. This means that students can write their initials on their square instead of using counters. The way the game is played can be manipulated. However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet): Roll Two Die to Create a Co-ordinate. Place your coloured counter on the square that the roll corresponds to. If answer is correct, receive points as follows: Points: Red squares are worth 1, Yellow squares score 2 points, and Green squares score 5 points Grades: Red squares are 4/5 Grade, Yellow squares and 6/7 Grade and Green Squares and 8/9 Grade answers Please use a great revision resource for group work. Please also leave any feedback for future revision mats and how to improve them.

Rotation support

Rotation support

A 'hands on tool' to support pupils understanding of rotation. The two disc are to be cut out and joined using a split-pin, or similar. Pupils can use the tool to track basic rotations (clockwise and anti-clockwise) by placing the tracing over the scale. Designed for a very low ability year 7 class, very well received.

Complete transformations of shapes (translation, reflection, rotation and enlargement)

Complete transformations of shapes (translation, reflection, rotation and enlargement)

Over the years I have built up a rather hefty transformations notebook file. I believe this includes everything that needs to be included to be able to teach everything on transformations of shapes (including stretching the most able as well as scaffolding for lower ability). It includes activities which can be taken off and used as a worksheet (some answers included) as well as quizzes (with answers as well). This is my go to for any year group throughout KS3 and KS4 when teaching transformations as i can pick out the best bits. I hope this is useful for your too. Enjoy! After the transformations there are some slides on congruent triangles, similarity and symmetry as this can lead on nicely after transformations.

Transformations Matching Card Sort

Transformations Matching Card Sort

Students first group the cards in to the four types of transformations. This will promote discussion of how to spot each type. Then students match each card to a description. Many of the descriptions are similar, promoting discussion of common misconceptions. There is also one extra description of each type of transformation. This is to stop students from not checking the last of each transformation, but also allows students to draw each type of transformation. This activity would be an ideal way to lead in to 'Describing Transformations' after covering 'Drawing Transformations'.

Hint sheet for area and volume in similar shapes

Hint sheet for area and volume in similar shapes

Hint sheet with key facts / examples for area and volume in similar shapes. Good to give to students as reminder when completing exam questions on the topic. I always encourage students to do the bigger divided by the smaller to find the scale factor - then always times by the scale factor to go from small to big, divide by it to go from big to small.

Match Statements: Congruent Triangle

Match Statements: Congruent Triangle

**Thank you to Corbett maths for one of the questions!** I used this with a Year 11 class who was predicted 3-5. There are 4 exam questions, on the top of the sheet there are all the correct statements to build the proof. I cut the sheets in two, so that the statements was on one sheet and the questions on another, this way the confident students can be stretched by having no help. Please tell me how you used or would amend this resource!
