Angle animals - angles in polygons worksheet

Angle animals - angles in polygons worksheet

Calculate all the missing angles in the sheep, dog and frog. My class loved this and it was a great way make angles in polygons more interesting and do a bit of problem solving with it too. The worksheet is in both PDF and Microsoft Publisher format.

Pythagosaurus Rex - prehistoric Pythagoras Problem Solving!

Pythagosaurus Rex - prehistoric Pythagoras Problem Solving!

Continuing the dinosaur theme I made this for my very bright top set year 8 class, although it has worked very well with higher tier GCSE classes also. Students need to work out the perimeter of the different prehistoric creatures that are made from triangles, rectangles, circles etc. There is a class example Pythagosaurus Rex with a scaffolded printable answer sheet. There is also a spot the mistake task to address any misconceptions with Pythagoras before attempting the main sheet.

Treegonometry - problem solving with trigonometry, Pythagoras and trees!

Treegonometry - problem solving with trigonometry, Pythagoras and trees!

My GCSE higher tier class loved this so it was well worth all the effort put into making it. Really applicable to the new GCSE specification, you need to work out the area of six trees of increasing difficulty, made from triangles, rectangles, parallelograms and trapezia. Included is the worksheet in PDF and also Microsoft Publisher format, and a class example on Microsoft Powerpoint.

Area of 2D shapes

Area of 2D shapes

The following pack contains a detailed lesson with 4 different resources which can be used as a whole lesson (as I did myself) or as a quick micro revision lesson for yr 11's. This teaches the area of: Compound shapes, rectangles, trapezia and triangles. The pack contains: - An in depth lesson plan. - A PowerPoint which includes a starter, main activities which scaffold towards the worksheet. - A detailed 2 page worksheet. - A small activity to be given as homework. This worked well with my top set yr8s and yr 9s.

Negative numbers: Increasing and decreasing temperature (Celsius), simple subtraction calculations with mostly negative answers, addition and subtraction of negative and positive integers. THIS IS A TES RECOMMENDED RESOURCE. The negative numbers pack includes a loop game and self-check word problem cards alongside 3 puzzles. BUNDLE 2: Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 2 Percentages: Decimal and Fraction Equivalents, Percentages of Quantities / Amounts, Percentage Increases and Decreases Decimals: Ordering, Mental Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division of Decimals Division: Dividing Using Times Tables, Halving, Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000, Dividing by multiples of 10 and 100. Time: Telling the Time (Analogue), Converting Words to Digital, 12 and 24 Clocks, Converting Units of Time (Seconds, Minutes, Hours), Durations / Elapsed Time). BUNDLE 3: Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 3 Angles: Angle Types / Names (Acute, Right, Straight, Obtuse & Reflex), Measuring Angles up to 180 degrees, Measuring Angles up to 360 degrees, Angles Between the 8 Compass Points and Missing Angles (Vertically Opposite, Adjacent, Straight Line and Around a Point) Area and Perimeter: Squares, Rectangles, Right-Angled Triangles and Compound Shapes Converting Units of Measure: Length, Volume / Capacity, Weight (Mass), Ordering, Converting Measurements for Mental Addition and Subtraction calculations Shape: 2D Shape Names, Types of Triangles, Angles in a Triangle / Missing Angles, Properties of Quadrilaterals (includes symmetry, angles, parallel sides etc.) and Names and Properties of 3D Shapes / Objects For differentiation, there are additional less / more challenging versions of some puzzles. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a maths-related word is revealed after completing calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a calculation and a letter. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors. Then they assemble letters from the circled boxes to reveal the hidden maths word. (In the rounding puzzle pupils find the numbers that don’t round to specified target numbers and in some of the fractions puzzles, pupils must find non-equivalent fractions etc). Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. In many puzzles there is an extension question / challenge linked to the hidden word, which on some may require a little research if time. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. Thank you for your interest in my resources. I do hope your students enjoy using these puzzles. Please do consider giving a review on TES if you get a spare moment. I would be so grateful. Please visit FullShelf Resources for engaging, time-saving printables, activities and presentations to plan Primary (and some Secondary) Literacy / English, Maths / Numeracy and French lessons. I also have a growing collection of puzzles for special events, anniversaries and Social Studies.

Powerpoint of Recognise and Draw nets of 3-D shapes Whole Lesson

Powerpoint of Recognise and Draw nets of 3-D shapes Whole Lesson

A Powerpoint for KS3 and GCSE Foundation Students which helps them to recognise and draw nets of 3-D shapes (including Cubes, Cuboids and Triangular Based Prisms). There is sufficient material in the Powerpoint to cover a whole lesson. This could be used as the lesson before teaching students how to work out the surface area of 3-D shapes. In this resource, the pupils are taught how to recognise 3-D shapes before being scaffolded through how to draw them with worked examples of how to draw cuboids and cubes. There are questions for students to complete. The Powerpoint is quite interactive and there is also a strong cross-curricular link with Literacy.
