Colour by substitution 1

Colour by substitution 1

As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising solving questions where substitution is involved. It covers adding, subtracting, multiplying, and order of operations including negative numbers. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the questions and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. The solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully accepted.

Using Formulae and Substitution Practice

Using Formulae and Substitution Practice

An Excel Workbook containing two spreadsheets to practice the GCSE skills of using formulae and substitution. Both sheets have an associated answer sheet going through each question. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!

Algebra - Satisfying Variables Lesson

Algebra - Satisfying Variables Lesson

A complete lesson for Year 6 that focuses on the algebra objective of enumerating possibilities of combinations of two variables. Included is a lesson presentation that includes a variety of teaching points and practise questions before children choose their activity, based on confidence levels. There is then a final challenge question at the end of the presentation that children can try to tackle before discussing as a group.

Interior and Exterior Angles in a Polygon Powerpoint Whole Lesson

Interior and Exterior Angles in a Polygon Powerpoint Whole Lesson

This is a Powerpoint teaching students how to find the interior and exterior angles of a polygon. It is equally suitable for KS3 and GCSE Foundation Maths students. There is sufficient material in the Powerpoint for at least 1 lesson, possibly 2 depending on how fast your class covers the content. The powerpoint shows pupils how to work out the interior and exterior angles of a polygon, firstly by providing them with key terms to learn, then by allowing them to investigate the link between the sum of the interior angles in a shape and the number of sides it has, before linking that to the exterior angle of a polygon. Other topics covered by this Powerpoint include: properties of shape, angle laws, generalising and substitution.
