Mathematics Revision Mats

Mathematics Revision Mats

Please use these mats as a revision games to play in groups in the classroom. They should be printed on A3 paper and laminated so that it can be re-used. This means that students can write their initials on their square instead of using counters. The way the game is played can be manipulated. However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet): Roll Two Die to Create a Co-ordinate. Place your coloured counter on the square that the roll corresponds to. If answer is correct, receive points as follows: Points: Red squares are worth 1, Yellow squares score 2 points, and Green squares score 5 points Grades: Red squares are 4/5 Grade, Yellow squares and 6/7 Grade and Green Squares and 8/9 Grade answers Please use a great revision resource for group work.

Statistics: (S1) Combining Data Sets (Mean & Standard Deviation)

Statistics: (S1) Combining Data Sets (Mean & Standard Deviation)

This is a whole lesson on looking at combining data sets, in particular combining the mean and standard deviation. It comes with a starter, learning objectives, different small activities to assess understanding, lots of examples, and plenary. The strength of this resource (16 slides) is the excellent examples and teaching content. When looking through my files I couldn't find a particularly great worksheet or activity on this, so I have included a mixture of things that I had already, which have some good questions in. I looked through various textbooks I have and the best I saw was the Cambridge one, but again it only had a few really good questions in.

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 3 - Backwards and Further Problems (+ worksheets)

This is the third of four lessons on the normal distribution, which builds on the first two lessons. This is your A/A* material, looking at different types of questions and problems. This is an excellent resource, with lots and lots of excellent teaching slides, 21 slides. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching about how to work backwards and different questions. It does touch on linear combinations, so I recommend teaching that first (also available from my shop) and looks in detail at little issues/ mistakes that people can make. This is a vital lesson for your top end students and gives less able students more time to practise the normal distribution. I have therefore included two worksheets (exam questions) aimed at different abilities students and then come with accompanying mark schemes.

This is the second of four lessons on the normal distribution, which builds on the first lesson that introduced the topic by looking at what to do when data is not in the standard normal form. This is an excellent resource, with lots and lots of excellent teaching slides, 21 slides. Specifically, this lesson is for teaching what is the normal distribution is, the criteria for using it and how and HOW TO STANDARDISE, and again how to use lookup tables to solve problems that are in a standard normal form having standardised. I have also included questions I often used with accompanying mark scheme.

S3 Estimation and Confidence Intervals Topic Mat

S3 Estimation and Confidence Intervals Topic Mat

A mat to summarise key concepts from the S3 topic Estimation and Confidence Interval (Edexcel). This one is quite big so I put it onto A3 paper! I also include a suggestion for how the mat could be filled out. I usually use it as a plenary – ask the pupils for the key ideas from the lesson and collectively fill in sections over a sequence of lessons. At the end of a topic they have a topic mat from which to revise from. I also photocopy them on different coloured paper so they act as dividers in students’ folders.

Mean and standard deviation

Mean and standard deviation

This presentation focuses on what standard deviation really is. We look at some examples of data that all have the same mean, but where the variation in data is different. This enables us to see how the standard deviation can be useful and why we need to square the values before square rooting. A good visual representation to enhance understanding of what the standard deviation of a set of data means.
