KS3 Maths Revision Pack

KS3 Maths Revision Pack

This is a great value, extremely useful resource to help students with KS3 Maths revision. It contains a glossary of all mathematical terms on the syllabus to help students become familiar with terminology and boost literacy skills, a test on the essential skills they will use in KS3 Maths as well as a handy formulae sheet for areas of 2-D shapes and properties of a circle. The pack also includes teaching/revision sheets for pupils on finding the area and circumference of a circle, ratios (simplifying and dividing an amount into given quantities), 2-D shapes (including Polygons), Triangular Numbers (which covers the properties and finding the nth term of the sequence with worked examples of exam questions). The pack concludes with an investigation teachers can use to show pupils the origin of the triangular numbers sequence.

Clumsy Clive On Simplifying Expressions

Clumsy Clive On Simplifying Expressions

Clive is having a go at simplifying expressions, without complete success. Your task (or more accurately, your class' task) is to help Clive correct his homework and explain where he's gone wrong. Good for starters or plenaries and encourages discussion.

Triangular Numbers Bundle

Triangular Numbers Bundle

A handy resource pack which includes 2 investigations on triangular numbers: 1 designed to introduce to pupils to the sequence (this resource links with properties of shape) and the other to help pupils understand the derivation of the formula for the nth term of the triangular numbers sequence (this resource links to finding the nth term of quadratic sequences, simplifying expressions and factorising). Also included is a revision sheet covering all the content of triangular numbers in the curriculum including the properties of the sequence, finding the nth term of it and worked examples of exam questions involving triangular numbers.

KS4 Triangular Numbers Investigation

KS4 Triangular Numbers Investigation

This resource gets students to investigate how to find a formula for the triangular numbers through the investigating the number of football teams play each other in a round robin. This resource is suitable for GCSE students and more able KS3 students. Students are then guided through an investigation to see a step-by-step derivation for the algebraic nth term for the sequence of triangular numbers. This would be an excellent way of introducing how to find the nth term of quadratic sequences as pupils will be familiar with the triangular numbers sequence.

KS3 and KS4 Triangular Numbers Revision Sheet

KS3 and KS4 Triangular Numbers Revision Sheet

This is a great revision source for KS3 and KS4 pupils on triangular numbers. The resource includes a definition and explanation, patterns which can be found in the sequence, how to find the nth term of the sequence and worked examples of exam questions involving triangular numbers. Depending on the ability of the class, you may wish to differentiate; the opening part of the resource is suitable for less able learners whilst the later part of the resource should stretch more able students. Other topics linked with this resource include finding the nth term of quadratic sequences, generating sequences and properties of numbers.

Children in Need - Solve the Crime!

Children in Need - Solve the Crime!

Students work to solve a crime based on the theme of Children in Need. Students must use their maths skills to break a number of codes to reveal clues to the identity of a thief who stole a schools fundraising for the Children in Need charity. To solve the clues students must use addition, division and algebra. Resource aimed at low ability Year 7 students who have been introduced to algebra including expanding brackets and finding the value of x. Addition and division tasks used to allow students to recap on previous learning in this area and develop further confidence in solving these problems.
