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!

Geometry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Shape Measure

Geometry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Shape Measure

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Geometry’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Standard Form Reasoning Tasks

Standard Form Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based an Edexcel GCSE question (from the specimen papers) about standard form and substitution. 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, and include work on ratio, surface area and volume of spheres, units of compound measures, density and direct/inverse proportion. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. The Venn diagram task is an excellent idea I swiped from the amazing Mr Barton. If you’re after a similar task that focuses more explicitly on surface area, volume and density, you might like https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/density-and-volume-reasoning-tasks-11837600. Please consider leaving some feedback. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!

Converting measures colour in - what's the word?  (Challenging!)

Converting measures colour in - what's the word? (Challenging!)

Students colour in the true boxes - this gives a letter per box, which is an anagram of an 8 letter word (triangle!) which the students have to find. Worked really well on what can be a bit of a dull topic. There are some very challenging questions on both metric and imperial conversions, and also a bit of mathematical general knowledge thrown in too!

Solving GCSE Maths word problems: approach and template for EAL students/other with language needs

Solving GCSE Maths word problems: approach and template for EAL students/other with language needs

Recent changes to the GSCE maths exams have made them increasingly challenging for EAL students. More and longer word problems reduce the students’ ability to succeed purely on the basis of their maths ability; an increased level of English mastery is now required. This resource is intended to support EAL and other students (e.g. SEN) who find that the complex language of mathematics word problems can make them inaccessible. The approach has been tested with 30 GCSE word problems. It aims to allow such problems to be tackled more methodically and with greater confidence. The resource contains: • A copy of the approach sheet • A rationale • Two copies of the 30 questions (the second one provides a model for underlining). • Worked solutions for each problem, using the approach sheet. A second copy of these sheets is provided for the purposes of differentiation; this provides a scaffold for less confident students, modelling how to organise and diagrammatically represent the information from the question and allowing the students to do the calculations. • A list of common-usage words that regularly appear in word problems. This is suitable for: • EAL students (advanced stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible.
