Direct Proportion: Money (Loop Cards)

Direct Proportion: Money (Loop Cards)

I love to start one-to-one tutorials/interventions with a loop card activity. They are also excellent when working with small groups or as a starter or plenary for a whole class. To see all the available loop-card topics click 👉 tes.com/…/More Loop Cards….<hr>This particular set of cards allows students to practise using the unitary method to find the cost of n items when they know the cost of m items. Note that the questions have been carefully selected so that they provide good coverage of this sub-topic and so that the opportunities for students to guess answers are minimised.<hr>Colour coding: All my loop cards are colour-coded to indicate the approximate level of the questions: KS2 – red and orange KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple<hr>Further information: In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order 😃 My favourite use of loop cards is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins). More instructions are included in the download. Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.<hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

Times Table (multiplication) games. A complete set!

Times Table (multiplication) games. A complete set!

This is a fantastic set of resources for practicing times tables. They are great for quick activities at the start of lessons or in quick maths slots. The children will role two dice and add the digits together. They will then multiply this by a given times table and place a O or X on the corresponding square. The aim of the game is to get 4 in a row. Children are able to block each other if they happen to role the number required. Game can be played in twos, however alternative versions are possible such as three in a row with three or four children using a different colour pen each. An excellent, fun way to revise times tables!

A brilliant resource that incorporates: Algebra, rearranging equations, changing the subject in equations, applying algebra to a problem, team work.
