FIFA 2018 WORLD CUP WORKSHEET WITH MARK SCHEME

FIFA 2018 WORLD CUP WORKSHEET WITH MARK SCHEME

(It does look a bit strange that some of the writing doesnt fit in the box properly on the LO but this is just in the preview, it will be all lined up when you download) Attached is the official FIFA rankings as of the 4th June 2018. The children must use this information to solve the variety of mathematical problems. Brilliant KS2 lesson in the run up to the world cup. I also did a follow up lesson where the children had to produce a bar chart of the top 5 teams in the world and then 5 teams of their choice - they absolutely loved it. This resource also includes a mark scheme and a feedback questions to reduce your workload! Enjoy! Once downloaded this is editable through microsoft word to make it easier/harder to suit your class.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - Revision Game

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - Revision Game

This game can be used for all subjects and for all abilities. There are brief explanations on how to change things to match your subject in the notes page on the first two slides. All you need to do is write in your questions and answers and it will do the rest. I have titled “correct answer” on each question enry so if you click it it will move you up the money board. Click an incorrect one and it will tell you it’s wrong and you lose. Classes I have used this with have really enjoyed it and it has prompted whole class discussion.

June 2018 OCR predicted paper 2 (Foundation)

June 2018 OCR predicted paper 2 (Foundation)

I have put together a predicted foundation paper 2 for the OCR spec (non calc), it is focused on topics which have not been tested on paper 1 and i have tried to use similar style of questions to recent OCR specimen and the last 2 exam papers. There is a mark scheme which i have quickly put together, this is not detailed (a quick guide!) Please note the predicted paper is just a best guess and it is not 100% that the content on it will turn up. The bulk of the content has been adapted and nothing is copied exactly from any specific paper or resource. This may be used as a useful revision activity! Hope it is of good use, leave a comment. Sorry for any silly errors in advance! I have spotted one myself: question 18 to find P 3 x 3 x 3 x 2 x 7 =378 ops!

Insertion Sort and Merge Sort Self-Marking Questions

Insertion Sort and Merge Sort Self-Marking Questions

Designed for GCSE/A-Level students who are taking computer science. Helpful also for A-Level maths students. It is a self-marking excel sheet that will test students on insertion sort and merge sort, giving them an outline for how to write the answers to such questions in exams. In the top left corner there is a cell to input a number, by inputting this number, it will change the values in the insertion/merge sort question.

Heuristics, Occams razor, and how is that possible pt 3

Heuristics, Occams razor, and how is that possible pt 3

How is that possible - part 3 Using heuristics to In maths, when you are asked the question ‘is something possible or not’ and you suspect it is possible, it is useful to ask more questions. You can ask, for example, ‘how is it possible’, or ‘which properties should this construction satisfy’. You need to look for some additional knowledge to narrow the number of possible answers. It will help you to see what the answer is. Following Sherlock Holmes’s methods you can come up with a question, consider all the cases, and then discard the impossible ones. What’s left will be your answer, however impossible it seemed in the beginning. This is aimed at G&T year 10’s to allow them to stretch their problem-solving skills. Separate question and answer sheets are provided. 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.

Football World Cup 2018 Problem Solving activity (Great to engage boys)

Football World Cup 2018 Problem Solving activity (Great to engage boys)

This is a great problem solving activity for groups to work through in small groups to plan the fixtures for the 2018 World Cup. It is great for engaging boys who maybe struggle to become integrated in group work and problem solving activities. When I used this in a class we spent 90 mins planning and the another hour in the computer lab producing a document and posters for the World Cup.

The problem of the dropped box of matches, pt 2 “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 2 of 2. Suggested that it is used alongside ‘sticks’ of some sort so that kids can physcially explore the problem.

Logic & problem-solving saves wise man

Logic & problem-solving saves wise man

An evil Emperor kidnapped the wisest man in the kingdom and said he was to be put to death. His family pleaded for his life, so the Emperor decided to have some evil fun and give the wise man a chance. The wise man is given 12 pills; 11 are poison and one is safe. The pills are identical except the safe one has a slightly differently weight. He is also given a balance on which he can weigh them. He can only make 3 weighings then he has to take one of the pills. Designed for G&T years 9/10 this calls on all their logic and problem-solving skills. Ideally placed for collaborative working, where trial-and-error tests their ability to be wrong and yet try again. From a teaching perspective this is a real, practical, maths task, where the use of props such as Smarties or Tic-Tacs makes it more realistic than the static pencil and paper - or if you have access to some sort of ‘pod’, like those inside Kinder eggs, it’s very simple to make one slightly heavier than the rest to really bring it to life.

Christmas activities, Christmas activity. Can your class save Christmas from Santa's evil brother?

Christmas activities, Christmas activity. Can your class save Christmas from Santa's evil brother?

Great fun Christmas activities, complete and ready to use. Lots of engaging and fun activities and a primary activity of building and firing straw air powered rockets in the classroom (no need to go outside). Please don't stop reading! This is not a lesson only for science teachers... A story is woven and as part of the lesson the learners build rockets to save Christmas from Safcut - who is Santa's evil brother. All instructions are included and the lesson teaches the learners almost automatically, this is NOT a lesson only for our friends the science teachers (although it's excellent for them too!) - any of us can use this fun and imaginative lesson. Who is Safcut? What's his plan? Can your class save Christmas? The length of the lesson is very flexible, there are activities you can miss out and on the other hand there is a Christmas cracker based extension. So, the lesson can easily last anywhere between 1/2 hour and 1 and a 1/2 hours depending on your needs. This is definitely not a Christmas quiz, it gets the learners out of their seats, keeps them focused and engaged as they work in teams building and creating. It's a great lesson you can use with all ages from 6 to 16 and it won't go out of date so you can use it for years to come, which makes it excellent value at this price ! As well as being great fun and entertaining it is also educational and it includes: literacy, SMSC, team working skills, cooperation, physical building skills, questions with answers, activities with answers, play ball game, what engineers do, identify parts of a rocket, joke telling etc High quality lesson, great for Science teachers, and all other teachers too! Happy teaching ! Barclayfox. Key words: Christmas: activities, Christmas activity, Xmas, saving Christmas, Santa's evil brother, quiz, Xmas.

Matchstick Puzzles

Matchstick Puzzles

This is a really fun problem solving lesson. You'll need a bag of match sticks! We've all been challenged by someone who laid some matchsticks down and told us we could only move a certain amount to achieve a goal. Well, this PowerPoint contains 16 of these puzzles and their solutions! A fantastic lesson on problem solving. Perfect for the run up to holidays! Currently I have 16 puzzles and I do plan to increase that number. Please leave feedback, and if you do download it, keep an eye out for updates!
