#### Class Cluedo Maths

This converts the classic game Cluedo into three maths lessons. The aim for the children is to find out the location, weapon and the murderer by solving clues the murderer has left. I’ve always taught it as the children are in teams of 3 but it could be bigger or smaller teams. The font on the powerpoint is Baskerville Old Face which isn’t supported on the TES preview. The powerpoint is designed for a Year 6 class. However, it can be adapted to any age range, including secondary school, as everything within it is editable. The clues are meant to be multiple step maths questions and have been left blank for your use. It includes: The Cluedo Powerpoint The clues template on word The clues extention template on word A set of Cluedo cards on publisher A nice touch may be to get some deerstalker hats so the children can answer as the detective.

#### Higher Non Calc Problem solving questions with answers, from Edexcel Problem sets

I have put together a selection of problems from the Edexcel problem solving packs 2, 3 and 4. The questions should all be suitable for the non calculator papers and include solutions. I have also included some questions that are deemed to be calculator paper questions but can be answered without a calculator to further enhance and practise problem solving skills. I printed them out on A3 sheets and allowed students to work as a group of 3 -4 to solve the problems - feedback from students was positive.

#### Plotting straight line graphs (implicit equations)

Students are provided with structure to facilitate plotting straight line graphs of implicit equations. The worksheet is split into two sections, progressing in difficulty, and each has an extension section. For very able students a further extension could be to find the points of intersection without having to plot the lines, although it is generally beneficial for their understanding to have a visual representation available as well. Answers are provided, including the plotted straight lines. The focus of this lesson could be any of the following: – Plotting straight line graphs; – Rearranging equations; – Simultaneous equations; – Intersection of straight lines; – What it means to ‘satisfy’ an equation; – Implicit vs explicit equations. As you can see, many concepts are touched upon here, and you will need to decide which angle you are approaching this activity from to ensure that the lesson is coherent. Also included is a basic starter to give practise rearranging to change the subject of an equation.

#### Formulas and Straight line graphs worksheet for Year 7/8. Includes answers.

Here is a worksheet with 4 exercises on formulas and straight line graphs. In the first two, the equation is given to complete the table and then plot the points to draw the straight line graph. In the second two the graph is given to find the coordinates of different points and the equation that relates them The document includes the answer Please rate so I can improve as I go on!

This started as a lesson on plotting coordinates in the 1st quadrant, but morphed into something much deeper and could be used with any class from year 7 to year 11. Pupils will need to know what scalene, isosceles and right-angled triangles are to access this lesson. The first 16 slides are examples of plotting coordinates that could be used to introduce this skill, or as questions to check pupils can do it, or skipped altogether. Then there’s a worksheet where pupils plot sets of three given points and have to identify the type of triangle. I’ve followed this up with a set of questions for pupils to answer, where they justify their answers. This offers an engaging task for pupils to do, whilst practicing the basic of plotting coordinates, but also sets up the next task well. The ‘main’ task involves a grid with two points plotted. Pupils are asked to plot a third point on the grid, so that the resulting triangle is right-angled. This has 9 possible solutions for pupils to try to find. Then a second variant of making an isosceles triangle using the same two points, with 5 solutions. These are real low floor high ceiling tasks, with the scope to look at constructions, circle theorems and trig ratios for older pupils. Younger pupils could simply try with 2 new points and get some useful practice of thinking about coordinates and triangle types, in an engaging way. I have included a page of suggested next steps and animated solutions that could be shown to pupils. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
