Functional Skills Maths - City and Guilds Exam task booklets

Functional Skills Maths - City and Guilds Exam task booklets

Here I have taken some of the older City and Guilds exam practice papers and made them into topic specific booklets for functional skills revision. There are the number task, the measure tasks and the handling data tasks. I use these throughout the year as a progress check and as a formative assessment. Also great for functional skills revision. Mark scheme included. Our maths teams have found these to be really useful hopefully you will to. I have loads more functional skills and GCSE resources available on my Tes shop: let’sgetfunctional Leave me a review and get a free resource up to £3 in value.

Triangle area activity

Triangle area activity

A challenging activity on the theme of triangle area, suitable for year 11 revision. The initial questions require a knowledge of basic triangle area, Pythagoras’ theorem, SOHCAHTOA, the sine rule and 1/2absinC so a good, challenging revision task. The questions have been designed with a ‘minimally diferent’ element, to draw pupils attention to how subtle changes can have significant implications for selecting methods. There are some follow-up questions, that could be used to shift the focus of the activity. I’d love to hear anyone’s suggestions of further questions.

Constructions and accurate drawings lesson (lines, angles, perpendicular/angle bisector, triangles)

Constructions and accurate drawings lesson (lines, angles, perpendicular/angle bisector, triangles)

Please rate and review! Time saving resource for busy teachers! You should be able to teach a lesson with hardly any preparation (mainly printing and maybe some cutting!). Fully differentiated objectives: Blue: Draw accurate lines, angles, circles and triangles (using ruler and protractor) Gold:Construct perpendicular bisectors (including through a point) Red:Construct angle bisectors Challenge (Purple): construct a triangle using a compass (this is not on the powerpoint and is an independent task for students to see if they can work it out) This resource includes: • A PowerPoint • A differentiated Work booklet that includes self-assessment sections • Answers ( I recommend printing them onto tracing paper as it is very easy to mark then!) • 3 foldable how to guides for how to do constructions (perpendicular bisector, perpendicular bisector through a point, angle bisector). This is for students to have some independent learning/to help with revision in place of putting it all on the powerpoints. See the preview pictures for what they look like. The PowerPoint includes the following format (watch the preview video Here): • Objective and levels • A “how to teaching portion” with animated examples • Plenary (with answers) Recommendations: Print off the 3 per page foldables on different colours for different topics (see the cover image for an example) -This will involve some extra preparation from the teacher Print off the 3 topics on one page foldables on white and students can colour the titles in and cut out the foldables themselve - less preparation for the teacher The powerpoint and booklet are currently set up for GCSE maths grades, however you can edit the grades to reflect KS3 or your own schools assessment criteria. In the word booklet if you change any grade (e.g the blue section) it should automatically change the rest of that colour into the same grade. This will take up a whole lesson at least.

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.

KS2 Maths Bundle (Geometry)

KS2 Maths 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💬. If the rate-resource button on this page doesn’t work, then go to your ratings page by clicking 👉 www.tes.com/…/rate-resources…

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!

Ratios in the form 1 to n, with a World Cup twist

Ratios in the form 1 to n, with a World Cup twist

A complete lesson on putting ratios in the form 1 to n, and some applications of this (for scale drawing and maps). Assumes pupils have already learned how to generate equivalent ratios and simplify ratios - see my other resources for a lesson on these topics. Activities included: Starter: A set of questions to recap simplifying a ratio. Main: Examples and a quick set of questions on writing a ratio in the form 1:n A bingo activity to further consolidate the same skill. Slides/examples to show how the form 1:n is useful for creating or interpreting scale drawings and maps. A nice activity on the theme of this summer’s World Cup in Russia. Pupils (rather optimistically) look at a possible route to the final for England, and the air miles the team will amass if they get there (by measuring and interpreting a map of Russia). Plenary: A final question, also on a football theme, looking at another use for the form 1:n Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
