Maths / STEM / Science Project Lesson - Density of Metals (Density, Ratio, Volume)

Maths / STEM / Science Project Lesson - Density of Metals (Density, Ratio, Volume)

This is a Maths/STEM project lesson based around calculating and comparing the density of different metals. Students have to first calculate and rank the densities of the metals, than answer questions based on combining different ratios of metals. These questions involve working out density, volume or mass from compound metal alloys of differing ratios. The lesson was pitched at year 10, and has a support sheet to enable access for foundation students. The lesson was designed to last 75 minutes, but actually the difficult quesitons in the sheet means it could easily last 90 minutes or more if required.

Circle theorem and algebra

Circle theorem and algebra

Few questions I wrote where students have to set up and solve equations, using their knowledge of circle theorems. Please note on the handwritten sheet, I made a mistake. One of the cyclic quadrilaterals and simultaneous equations does not work, the equations are parallel. I usually sell it as “I have made one deliberate mistake”

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.

Circlies

Circlies

Lesson 1 - Drawing circles with a compass. Radius and diameter Lesson 2 - Circumference and discovering Pi Lesson 3 - Estimating the area and using Pi to find the area Perfect for an intro to circles as it gets the students to discover and discuss their findings.

5 Worksheets on the Circle Theorems

5 Worksheets on the Circle Theorems

5 Worksheets covering all the circle theorems - around 50 questions in total including answers Circle Theorems 1 is 10 questions on the angle at the centre and also the same segment Circle Theorems 2 is 10 questions on angles in a semicircle and a cyclic quadrilateral Circle Theorems 3 is 6 questions on radius / tangent and 2 tangents from one point Circle Theorems 4 is 6 questions on the Alternate Segment Theorem Circle Theorems 5 is 20 questions on all the theorems None of these questions are ridiculously complex as you get in textbooks and they are extremely well drawn though not to scale.

Roll-a-topic GCSE foundation Geometry Revision

Roll-a-topic GCSE foundation Geometry Revision

A revision activity that can be used for KS3 or foundation GCSE pupils. Can be implemented in lots of ways. I ask pupils to get into pairs, take turns rolling two dice to form a co-ordinate and attempt to solve the corresponding question. Pupil put their initials on problems they have solved and after 30-45 minutes stop and count who has solved the most. Very engaging for year 10 and 11 foundation GCSE pupils. If you use this resource please leave a review! :)

Geometry Project

Geometry Project

This is a geometry project for you to teach your students. This really fits in with when you are studying geometry. This project is best used as homework as this is how the booklet has been structured. Feel free to edit in any way you want to. Also as some of instructions in the booklet might not fit your teaching schedule you may wish to edit out those parts. This project is designed for Ks3 students in about a middle set. It is a great homework activity and can last for up to 4/5 weeks if extended.Also i have called it a Term 5 Booklet but please edit this so that it fits what term you are doing it in. Please leave any comments in the comments box so i know how it was or how to improve it.

Area and Circumference of Circle - (very) Simple, Scaffolded, Mixed Exercise + ANSWERS

Area and Circumference of Circle - (very) Simple, Scaffolded, Mixed Exercise + ANSWERS

Students have to show their working out for both the area and circumference of a circle from either the radius or the diameter. As an extension, put a circle, give the area or circumference and get students to work backwards. This is supposed to be an extremely simple exercise for pupils to have some practice with. My bottom set year 9s really struggled with the difference between being given the radius or the diameter. Feel free to adapt in any way. Let me know how it goes.

Maths: Lexicology Across the Curriculum - Bingo.

There are eight different bingo cards in this resource. I do not call out the affixes (prefixes and suffixes), I elicit the name of the affix through a series of concept questions. This is a great resource to improve knowledge and understanding of prefixes and suffixes which will ultimately develop a Mathematical Lexicon. Bingo as a ten minute starter creates a fantastic learning environment. For more resources visit my website www.lexicologyforreading.co.uk

Four fantastic investigations for higher end thinking.

This was done on my trip to the Science Museum. We took four key shots and have come up with four investigations in relation to these photos. They start very easy and become rather tricky. These are brilliant for those students who really need to be pushed at the higher end!

Circles Matching Task - Area, Perimeter, Circumference

Circles Matching Task - Area, Perimeter, Circumference

A matching task designed to develop fluency in finding the area and perimeter of circles. There are three cards that do not match the rest of the cards. An extension is to make the cards that fit these distracters; in some cases this will require starting with the circumference or the area and working backwards. Answers are provided for the matching pairs. The print out for the matching task is pre-jumbled so you do not need to worry about cutting them out prior to the lesson.
