Statistics Resource Pack for Year 2

Statistics Resource Pack for Year 2

10 sheets. The first exercises lead pupils through steps to construct Pictograms and Bar Charts. Later sheets require pupils to construct Pictograms and Bar Charts from supplied data. They form a structured sequence, and can be used as a stand-alone resource to cover the requirements of the National Curriculum. They can also be used individually, and are equally valuable to supplement existing teaching materials, for • Homework • Reinforcement • Extension work • Mixed-age environments.

Teacher Excel Markbook

Teacher Excel Markbook

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.

Heart Rate Math: Ratios & Proportions Activity with STEM Career Connection

Heart Rate Math: Ratios & Proportions Activity with STEM Career Connection

An engaging activity connecting math concepts to sports! Instead of boring worksheets, students will solve problems based on their own collected data and connect the concepts to cool careers! Students learn about heart rate and the importance of this number in sports medicine. They compute their own heart rate after various activities and graph the results. They calculate the target heart rate and answer critical thinking questions. The activity will take about 45 - 60 minutes to complete depending on student level. The activities are perfect as an in-class assignment, review activity, homework assignment, or extracurricular activity. Activities are focused on ratios and proportions concepts. Includes an introduction, career connection section, discussion questions, word problems, and extension critical thinking questions. *Aligned to the Common Core Math* 6.RP.A.1: Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. 6.RP.A.2: Understand the concept of a unit rate a/b associated with a ratio a:b with b ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. 6.RP.A.3: Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems 7.RP.A.1: Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas and other quantities measured in like or different units. 7.RP.A.2: Recognize and represent proportional relationships between quantities. 7.RP.A.3: Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems.

Firework Bar Graphs

Firework Bar Graphs

This activity offers a different way to teach tally and bar graphs. Students choose 20 firework cards from the firework deck (or any amount you choose from the 45 cards). We find that 20 cards offers the most interesting collection to work with. Students are invited to collect the data of their chosen cards and write it on the tally sheet. Finally, the students will then plot it on a bar graph. The nature of this activity means that each student should, in theory, produce their own tally and bar graph, unique from other students in the class. We have also differentiated versions of the worksheets themselves for those who need a little help with matching the fireworks to the value they need to tally.

Start of Year Maths Investigation

Start of Year Maths Investigation

In this investigation, children are challenged to look within their classroom to find examples of maths. This lesson is designed for a start-of-year investigation, where children recall the maths strands they've covered in prior years and try to find examples of fractions, angles, shapes, etc in real-life spaces. Ideally suited for lower KS2 year groups, but can easily be used as a practical, kinaesthetic investigation for upper KS2 year groups as well. An interactive whiteboard presentation and full lesson plan are included. All images courtesy of http://www.morguefile.com/
