KS3 Mathematics Starter Bundle

KS3 Mathematics Starter Bundle

This is a collection of 8 different resources and approximately 60 different Excel tabs. I use these as a premise for my starters with a mix of abilities from year 7-9. Each worksheet is differentiated, so you can give students varying sheets, or request they work from varying sections of the interactive whiteboard, whilst still providing them with the same answers. They foster a calm start to the lesson, and students always seem excited to learn when the lesson is started in this manner. The addition pyramids contain a self-check tool, so children can usefully self mark. The multiplication grid generator, includes an exciting ‘challenge’ sheet in which students have to work backwards to work out the row and column headers (using similiar skills to Sudoku). In addition to this the Cross number, and the times table grid excitingly contain a magic number extension. This involves students having to collate their answers, i.e. summing certain values, to obtain a magic numbers and perhaps win a small prize (sticker, or sweet, or just simple praise). Please review if you found helfpul.

Theme Park Manager percentages game (full lesson)

Theme Park Manager percentages game (full lesson)

This game puts students in charge of a theme park, for which they will choose from a selection of rides using the ride information cards, which detail the running cost and ticket price of each ride, the percentage of visitors that buy a ticket for it, its risk rating, and the cost of insurance for it. Each day a dice roll will then generate a random event which impacts on the fate of the rides, and students will have to use their knowledge of percentages to calculate the number of visitors buying a ticket for each of their rides that day. Included: – A powerpoint presentation outlining the rules and taking you through the game; – A set of information cards for students to use to choose their rides; and – A colour coded table for students to fill in throughout the game to keep track of the popularity of their rides, any fines they have to pay or compensation they are awarded. This is an excellent resource for consolidating students’ knowledge of how to calculate percentages of numbers and increase numbers by a given percentage. It also makes use of other basic number skills and strategic decision making. The game should take around 50 minutes start to finish, but it will be within your control to increase or decrease this as appropriate. Great to use as a fun end of term game that still gets students using lots of important maths skills without it feeling like work. <!—A fun end of term game maths game to reinforce knowledge of calculating percentages, which leads naturally to useful discussions as students are keen to calculate how much money they have earned. —>
