#### Athletics Lessons Olympics

This excel document is used to calculate points for a 30 individual and 4 team competition with your athletics lessons. The teacher (you) should split the class based on ability (ability pool on sheet 2) so that teams are fair. Overivew Consists of the leaderboards with automatic calculation depending on the points you award each pupil. Bonus Points need to be added individually by you on this page within the table. Additionally, pupils should be entered under their respective team name. Times &amp; Distances Consists of a pupil overview of times ran and distances thrown or jumped. Pupils should be listed next to their team and whether they are top ability (pool 1) or lower ability (pool 6). Class Points Consists of the points overview which will automaticallybe added into the overview sheet when inputted. Pupils should be entered next to their team and ability pool (exactly the same as sheet 2). But this time, you will use either the ‘English Schools Athletics Association’ (ESSA) points scoring systems or ‘International Amatuer Athletics Foundation’ (IAAF) points scoring system. ESSA Junior Girls Shows a table of the English Schools Athletics Association points scoring times and conditions. ESSA Inter Girls Shows a table of the English Schools Athletics Association points scoring times and conditions. ESSA Junior Boys Shows a table of the English Schools Athletics Association points scoring times and conditions. ESSA Inter Boys Shows a table of the English Schools Athletics Association points scoring times and conditions. Bonus Points Shows some conditions to how pupils can achieve bonus points, and how many should be awarded. Tables are taken from English Schools Athletics Association website for award schemes. School Records Shows my current high schools records that have been set and the year they were set. If they are beaten I would update them and that person would recieve 15 bonus points. X’s mark those records that are unable to be set at my school. Update them for your won school or compete against mine. IAAF International Amatuer Athletics Foundation’ (IAAF) points scoring system. Adapted to suit my current high school (and times I believe pupils should be aiming for) I hope you enjoy this document, if you have any questions, queries or ways to improve it them please get in contact!

#### Analogue and Digital Time Spans

A set of challenging tasks for more able upper primary pupils and KS3. These tasks assess the children’s ability to read analogue time, and to convert analogue to digital time. They are then scaffolded in the use of a method by which they can calculate time spans using digital time readings. Eight tasks are arranged in increasing order of difficulty using 12 and 24 hour time. The tasks are designed to provide a grounding from which pupils can go on to explore the effectiveness of various mental strategies to quickly and accurately calculate more complex time spans. The worksheets can be filled in by hand or electronically on a PC/tablet. The clock hands can be re-directed by clicking on them twice and pulling the arrow-tip around to tailor your own tasks.

#### 3D Trigonometry with Pyramid

After completing worked example problems pairs (using silent teacher) the class worked on these worksheets. It was spread over 2 lessons with the homework sheet given at the end of the 2nd lesson. The idea was to have the student practice each step (type of question) in isolation before going onto the next type question, and gradually building and picking it all together.

I made these worksheets for my low ability grade 10 class (year 11). They are designed to seperate each step required in identifying key points from each form. First they practice identifying the key points from each of the 3 forms, then they focus in finding just the y-interceptm just the vertex and just the zeros.

#### What Was The Question? - Ratio and Proportion Special

Four sets of four problems where students have the answer but there are blanks in the questions which require filling in. This is designed to create discussion in class and hopefully provided natural differentiation (stretch the “top end” by finding the general solution where possible compared to finding a single solution). I will be using these as starters or plenaries as I believe they will develop deeper understanding of topics, but feel free to use them as you like (you will as you don’t need me to hold your hand).

At least a lesson’s worth of activities on the theme of quadratic sequences. Designed to come after pupils have learnt the basics (how to use and find an nth term rule of a quadratic sequence). Gives pupils a chance to create their own examples and think mathematically. There are four activities included: Activity 1 - given sets of four numbers, pupils have to order them so that they form quadratic sequences. Designed to deepen pupils understanding that the terms in a quadratic sequences don’t necessarily always go up or down. Activities 2 and 3 - on the same theme of looking at the sequences you get when you pick and order three numbers of choice. Can you always create a quadratic sequence in this way? What if you had four numbers? Could be used to link to quadratic functions. Activity 4 - inverting the last activity, can pupils find possible values for the first three terms and a rule, given the fourth term? A chance for pupils to generate their own examples and possibly do some solving of equations in more than one variable. Where applicable, worked answers provided.

#### Adding Fractions By Colouring In

Two worksheets introducing adding fractions visually. On the first worksheet students represent two fractions by colouring in the correct number of segments in two circles. They then must colour in the resulting circle by adding the segments together. This makes for a great introduction to adding fractions and explaining why we add the numerators but leave the denominators the same. Ideal for KS2 or low ability KS3 students. The second worksheet extends the idea to fractions with different denominators. Answers are provided.

#### Gauss's formula

A complete lesson on the theme of the formula for 1+2+3+…+n, looking at how the rule emerges in different scenarios. Activities included: Starter: A classic related puzzle - counting how many lines in a complete graph. After the initial prompt showing a decagon, two differing approaches to a solution are shown. These will help pupils make connections later in the lesson. This is followed by a prompt relating to the handshaking lemma, which is the same thing in a different guise. Pupils could investigate this in small groups. Main: A prompt for pupils to consider the question supposedly put to Gauss as a child - to work out 1+2+3+…+100. Gauss’s method is then shown, at which point pupils could try the same method to sum to a different total. The method is then generalised to obtain Gauss’s rule of n(n+1)/2, followed by a worksheet of related questions. These include some challenging questions requiring pupils to adapt Gauss’s method (eg to work out 2+4+6+…+100). Plenary: A final look at the sequence Gauss’s rule generates (the triangle numbers). Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

A complete lesson on patterns of growing shapes that lead to quadratic sequences. See the cover image to get an idea of what I mean by this. Activities included: Starter: A matching activity relating to representation of linear sequences, to set the scene for considering similar representations of quadratic sequences, but also to pay close attention to the common sequences given by the nth term rules 2n and 2n-1 (ie even and odd numbers), as these feature heavily in the lesson. Main: A prompt to give pupils a sense of the intended outcomes of the lesson (see cover image). An extended set of examples of shape sequences with increasingly tricky nth term rules. The intention is that pupils would derive an nth term rule for the number of squares in each shape using the geometry of each shape rather than counting squares and finding an nth term rule from a list of numbers. A worksheet with a set of six different shape sequences, for pupils to consider/discuss. The nth term rules have been given, so the task is to justify these rules by considering the geometry of each shape sequence. Each rule can be justified in a number of ways, so this should lead to some good discussion of methods. Plenary: Ideally, pupils would share their differing methods, but I’ve shown a few methods to one of the sequences to stimulate discussion. Printable worksheets (2) included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
