.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

Christine is saving for a holiday. She is able to save some money per month. To get started Christine's grandparents are going to put in $500. This is the starting scenario - look at saving $50 per month and then two other options. Looking at the relationship between graph, table and equation of the data in the tables and investigate the link to gradient and y-intercept. A starting place for a unit on linear graphs (if students don't know gradient, teach it in context or skip that part)

Tour de France Formulas Lesson

Tour de France Formulas Lesson

I made this for my year 6 Maths class although it could be used higher up. It gets the class using formula repetitively before applying their learning to word problems. All the work is differentiated and the sheets just need to be printed from the slides. ALL WORKSHEETS COME WITH ANSWERS!

Loop Card Races (Substitution 3)

Loop Card Races (Substitution 3)

This download contains four sets of 16 cards. Students choose a set of cards and sort them into order! The questions are the same for each set, but the sort order has been changed. This way, students can repeat the activity with different versions of the cards and check that they have learnt from earlier mistakes. The cards can either be used by individuals, pairs or small groups. Solutions and instructions are included, but my favourite use is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins!). Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.

Substitution 3 – Getting Tricky (Treasure Hunt)

An addition to this Treasure Hunt is that the answers to the questions give an encrypted clue (for students to decipher) which reveals where the treasure is hidden. This particular activity focuses on substituting negative values into a variety of expressions. [CLICK HERE] for a list of similar style Treasure Hunts on other topics. A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so! These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. This allows them to be easily used for a whole class activity, group work or by individuals. The loop cards are particularly helpful during interventions.
