Loci Examples and Questions Booklet

Loci Examples and Questions Booklet

I made this for teaching loci and what the common wording in exam questions means to KS3 classes. Ideally for use with a visualiser - first question as an example and the others are for the students to practice. I also used a Corbettmaths worksheet with the higher ability students to give questions in context which are available for free on the Corbettmaths website .

Bearings and distances. With answers. Scale Drawing.

In this activity students must use the map scale to find the distance between different cities both in kilometres and in miles. They will need ruler and protractor in order to find the bearing of a city from another one. It includes the answers. I hope you find it useful! Please rate this resource so I can improve as I go on!

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Fully resourced lesson on geometric patterns is Islamic Art

Most suitable for key stage 3. Looks at geometry in Islamic Art. Students then create their designs using either compasses (higher groups) or isometric/square grids (may be better with lower groups). Probably good for end of module/term lesson Resources in the lesson gathered from all over the place, but thought it would be useful to have in one place as a single lesson.

SATs Bundle (Geometry)

SATs Bundle (Geometry)

Topic-focused SATs questions and fully-worked solutions for the GEOMETRY strand. Click 👉 tes.com/…/bundles… for booklet bundles of the other strands.<hr>I have put all my GEOMETRY booklets together in this one convenient download. I hope that this is helpful to you.<hr> The questions in these booklets are in the style of actual SATs questions and are designed to be printed as A4 or A5. KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful. I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented. Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined). I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃 <hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

Fortnite Bearings Fun

Fortnite Bearings Fun

If you haven’t heard your students talking about Fortnite then where have you been? 45 million people play the shooter game Fortnite and I can’t stop the kids I teach from talking about it. This activity incorporates lots of different concepts: Ratios/Scales Bearings Speed, distance, time Pythagoras Area problem solving Edit and remove questions as you want. If you print at 100% the scale will be 1.5cm to 250m Otherwise you might have to give it a measure if you print to fit Also: The locations from the bearings are locations required for one of the challenges this season to get them even more engaged. Half my class have taken the work home to finish so they can gain in game rewards

Operation Bearings - Outdoor bearings activity

Operation Bearings - Outdoor bearings activity

This is an adapted activity for practising bearings outdoors. Students are asked to use compasses on their phones to follow instructions on bearings. I had the students dropping a cone at each stage and trailing a piece of string behind them. Following correctly results in an arrow being formed on the ground, this can then lead to questioning like ‘we all started in different places, facing different ways, why are the arrows pointing the same way?’. They can then be extended to write their own instructions or story of bearings to follow. I found the original on a blog but with a photo of the worksheet, I re-wrote it, changed ‘clicks’ to ‘steps’ to work on a smaller scale and added an extension. I used this with a lower set year 9, but could also work with advanced year 7s through to weaker year 10s I think.

Nets of 3D solids

Nets of 3D solids

A complete lesson on drawing nets and visualising how they fold. The content has some overlap with a resource I have freely shared on the TES website for years, but has now been augmented and significantly upgraded,as well as being presented in a full, three-part lesson format. Activities included: Starter: A matching activity, where pupils match up names of solids, 3D sketches and nets. Main: A link to an online gogebra file (no software required) that allows you to fold and unfold various nets, to help pupils visualise. A question with an accurate, visual worked answer, where pupils make an accurate drawing of a cuboid’s net. Rather than answer lots of similar questions, pupils are then asked to compare answers with others and discuss whether their answers are different and/or correct. The same process with a triangular prism. A brief look at other prisms and a tetrahedron (the latter has the potential to be used to revise constructions if pupils have done them before, or could be briefly discussed as a future task, or left out) Then two activities with a different focus - the first looking at whether some given sketches are valid nets of cubes, the second about visualising which vertices of a net of a cube would meet when folded. Plenary: A brief look at some more elaborate nets, a link to a silly but fun net related video and a link to a second video, which describes a potential follow up or homework task. Printable worksheets and answers included where appropriate. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

Loci sticky dots activity and linked booklet

Loci sticky dots activity and linked booklet

A printable set of 10 diagrams for showing loci and a supporting booklet. Designed for use after the associated constructions have already been taught. Stick these sheets up round the room/corridor. Furnish each pupil with a set of 10 sticky dots, available from all good stationers. They have to place a dot on each diagram according to the conditions given, and not in the same place as any other dot. (Rulers allowed at your discretion) When all 30(?) dots have been placed, it makes for a good discussion about the line/region that has been created. The booklet is a scaled down version of these diagrams for pupils to create the accurate versions of these loci with their knowledge of constructions. The matching cards are for those who may finish early and can have a go at interpreting contextual loci descriptions.
