History of the metric system

History of the metric system

A presentation to get pupils thinking a about the origins of the metric system. There’s quite a lot of information in there, but I think its interesting so I’m going to make my pupils look at it! There are no worksheets or ‘usual’ metric questions, but I’ve put some follow up questions and possible activities in the comments boxes on each slide. Please let me know if you have any better ideas as mine are a bit lame. Most of the information is taken from Wikipedia so please let me know if you see any innacuracies!

KS2 MATHS - MEASURES

KS2 MATHS - MEASURES

This resource has five activities which were designed to develop understanding and confidence of the individual students that I tutor. The activities can also be used for independent learning and group work in the classroom. Although the straight line to curved line activity was designed to support a student with line drawing and using a ruler it can be adapted to be used with multiples. Other activities include converting measures, using measures to find equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages and telling the time using analogue clock.

Harry Potter and the Conversion of Units

Harry Potter and the Conversion of Units

A student asked me to do a resource involving Harry Potter; we are doing unit conversion soon so this is what occurred. There are two tasks, one converting metric units (including a challenge involving areas and volumes) and a second converting between metric and imperial. I downloaded a font from dafont.com for free so if you want to edit the worksheets (I have included the Word versions so you can do so) you will have to download the font too.

KS2 Maths Bundle (Measurement)

Topic-focused SATs questions and fully-worked solutions for the MEASUREMENT strand. Click 👉 tes.com/…/bundles… for booklet bundles of the other strands.<hr>I have put all my MEASUREMENT 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💬.

This is a bundle of all 5 sets of my homework sheets. I have been giving these out as a homework booklet to my year 11’s all year. For me a booklet consists of Homework 1,11,21,31,41,and 51. We then go through the answers so students can self assess. I feel these have helped strengthen their understanding on some of the basic topics, leaving me more time in class to concentrate on more complex problems.

Reading Scales Complete Lesson

Reading Scales Complete Lesson

NOTE - For some reason the preview for the powerpoint lesson plan seems to show the formatting weirdly (some textboxes look too small etc.), however when I download it and open the file it looks just as it should. Complete lesson on teaching pupils to take readings from scales (including decimals), with both Powerpoint and SMART Notebook versions. Fully differentiated worksheet included, with a slide of extra challenging questions to display on the board and stretch the upper end of the class. Blockbusters game included as an alternative activity. I have broken down the process of reading the scales quite a lot, you may wish to delete that part from the example slides and set it out yourself if you have your own preferred way of teaching it. I would also recommend checking to see if the starter questions need adjusting for your class, though I have tried to keep them quite generalised.
