Area Puzzles

5 fun Area and Perimeter Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Puzzles (and solutions) for Key Stage 2 (KS2) Year 5 and Year 6 and equivalents, which will also suit some early KS3. There's a puzzle for each of the following: Area of Squares and Rectangles, Perimeter of Squares and Rectangles, Area of Right-Angled Triangles and two further puzzles on Compound / Composite Shapes (2 star - more challenging plus a 1 star – less challenging). This resource is also available as part of an Area and Perimeter Activities BUNDLE, alongside Bingo / Lotto Games and Four in a Row Games: An engaging alternative to worksheets, these minimal preparation, ready-to-print puzzles make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities. Designed in colour, they print fine in black and white too. To save on printing they could be laminated for completion with a whiteboard pen and kept for future years. Alternatively, put them in dry-erase plastic sleeves, meaning other pupils could use them later. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a measure-related word is revealed after completing area or perimeter calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a shape and a letter. Pupils circle any letters above incorrectly calculated areas or perimeters. Then they assemble letters from the circled boxes to reveal the hidden word. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. I have a growing collection of Maths and Literacy Hidden Word Puzzles, including this high-selling bundle, which includes more than 20 puzzles for Rounding, Multiplication, Negative Numbers and Fractions: Maths Puzzles These seasonal Mental Maths puzzles are also popular: Christmas Mental Maths Puzzles Halloween Maths Puzzles My Crossnumber Puzzle Packs are also popular, such as this one: Mental Maths Puzzles Year 5 / 6 Thank you for your interest in my resources. I would be grateful for a review if you get a moment.

The MFM1P 6000, Grade 9 Applied Culminating Activity - Simply Amazing!

The MFM1P 6000, Grade 9 Applied Culminating Activity - Simply Amazing!

A fresh approach to a culminating activity for grade 9 applied math, far from the routine pencil and paper! The "MFM1P 6000" is an interactive computer game which gives students an opportunity to show what they have learned, using models and strategies used in current MFM1P classes, while providing endless opportunity for practice and timely remedial help! Students receive instant automated feedback worded in growth mindset language. This program also provides teachers an extensive summary of students strengths and areas of difficulty. Download Tip ◾Your computer will flag the program as a virus. It is just doing it's job as it should for any unknown executable file! Be assured it is safe. Click "more info" and then "Run Anyway" etc. I know how tough it can be to motivate students to review material from the start of the semester in preparation for EQAO and the final exam. Set them loose in a computer lab for a few days with the MFM1P 6000 and watch the magic happen! Please visit calfordmath.ca/MFM1P6000 for a complete layout of the culminating activity including a complete curriculum connection list, and an up-to-date list of bug fixes and changes. This activity generates every single problem randomly so that every student has a different set of problems and can try as many attempts as necessary to master each topic. The topics span the MFM1P curriculum, and are arranged in difficulty from $100 to $500 score value. To earn 100%, a student must earn $6000 or more, and complete at least two problems from each category. I had tremendous engagement and much EQAO success with my grade 9 applied class last year when I piloted this activity. I have also added and tweaked many things! The game is a Windows Desktop Application designed for a PC. It is not web based, so you will need to copy the game file to a public handout folder where students can open it. I think you and your students will LOVE this! I would love to hear how it goes with your class, and I welcome any suggestions you have! Thanks for checking this out, ~CalfordMath
