Geography Oracy Game

‘No pens’, just word of mouth and teamwork! This lesson will engage all abilities and challenge numeracy and literacy skills. Aimed at secondary geography students, but ideal for English or maths, this is a fun way to learn about how favelas might be improved, make decisions and argue points of view.

Pressure Reasoning Tasks

Pressure Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on an Equdas GCSE question about pressure. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Full credit to the awesome Mr Barton for the Venn diagram template. If you are after similar tasks on other compound measures, you might like https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/density-and-volume-reasoning-tasks-11837600 which explores density, https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/standard-form-reasoning-tasks-11839225 which is based on calculating surface gravity (with some density questions) and https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/speed-and-fuel-economy-reasoning-tasks-11837737 which explores speed and fuel economy. All feedback very welcome. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!

Fractions, Maths, SEN, SEND, Fraction Cards, equivalent fractions

Fractions, Maths, SEN, SEND, Fraction Cards, equivalent fractions

Fraction cards to help students learn their fractions. I included a cake picture as my students loved cake, so you would need to cut out both circles and glue them together if you wanted to do this (this was also for SEN to show how fractions apply in the reality). Fractions lie on top of each other. i.e. 1/5 on top of 2 x 1/10 to show equivalent fractions USed with KS3 SEND but could be used with all year groups.
