Calculations Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Calculators

Calculations Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Calculators

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Calculations'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Rounding (how and why) to powers of ten and decimal places

Rounding (how and why) to powers of ten and decimal places

Rather than just teaching how to round, this presentation and worksheet focuses on using the number line to explain why we round to a particular amount. Its worked really well with classes of all ability as I have found over the years that people forget about the link with the number line and being closer to one amount than another. The worksheet is in both PDF and Microsoft Publisher format. The presentation is on Microsoft Powerpoint.

Rounding - whats the word task

Rounding - whats the word task

Students have to spot the numbers that have been correctly rounded. There is a letter with each number, and the correct letters make an anagram - the first answer is whale, the second answer is pony. Task 1 is rounding to the nearest ten, hundred, etc. Task 2 is rounding to one decimal place. This works brilliantly as either a starter/settler or a plenary.
