Area and Perimeter problem to solve

Area and Perimeter problem to solve

Lesson plan, LSA notes, IWB lesson, Walt and Wilf. Using a real life problem find rectangles that have the same area but different perimeters. Unless the children have studied the concepts it may need to be tackled over a couple of lessons. Lots of items to move to show the answers. The four folders go together to form 1 complete lesson. I really enjoyed this work and so did the children. Hope you do to. This is the first thing I have put on here Please leave me a rating who knows it may make me brave enough to share some other items. Thanks

Number Grids

Number Grids

Suitable for any key stage. Make any size number grid from 2 by 2 up to 15 by 15 by simply inputting the size you want (doesn’t have to be a square grid). There are 3 sheets - one starting at the top left (eg for T Totals or Multiplication Tables), one starting at the bottom left (eg for Number Stairs or Snakes and Ladders) and one which allows you to select which multiples are to be shown. Then simply print off any that you have created. Number Grid 2 allows two multiples to be highlighted simultaneously. Can now be used up to 15 by 15 square.

Maths Bingo!

Maths Bingo!

How to Play Bingo – not my own original idea, got it from a Maths magazine years ago Give each pupil a printed bingo grid Pupils draw a 4 X 4 grid in their book and put numbers into each box so that they match the ones in the printed grid) The two prime numbers must be different from each other. Go round the class – each person says one of their numbers and they and anyone else who has that number can cross it out (making sure it is still visible) First person to get all 16 shouts BINGO and you then check whether they are all correct (more often than not, the first one isn’t and that person is then out!) When they have played a couple of times they suss that you can put some numbers in like 1, lots of times! Then you move them onto a harder one – I have had classes make grids for themselves. ENJOY!
