Factorising 1 (Loop Cards)

Factorising 1 (Loop Cards)

I love to start one-to-one tutorials/interventions with a loop card activity. They are also excellent when working with small groups or as a starter or plenary for a whole class. To see all the available loop-card topics click 👉 tes.com/…/More Loop Cards….<hr>This particular set of cards allows students to practise factorising two terms in which the HCF is a single number. Note that the questions have been carefully selected so that they provide good coverage of this sub-topic and so that the opportunities for students to guess answers are minimised.<hr>Colour coding: All my loop cards are colour-coded to indicate the approximate level of the questions: KS2 – red and orange KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple<hr>Further information: In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order 😃 My favourite use of loop cards is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins). More instructions are included in the download. Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.<hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

Fantasy Roleplaying (6-8 Hours)

Fantasy Roleplaying (6-8 Hours)

Personally, I’m a big fan of role-playing games and miniature games so I decided to incorporate some of those elements into a unit of work I’ve done with my low-ability English group around Fantasy Fiction. This will allow students to create their own character and then go on their own adventure as a group working together to complete a quest and defeat stereotypical fantasy enemies. The story and enemies are lead and controlled by the class teacher, and this best works with smaller groups of around 4-6 students. The lessons focus on: Problem solving skills Addition & subtraction Dice probability Team-working skills Role-playing Setting description and visualization Creative writing If you are familiar with how Dungeons & Dragons works then this should all be very familiar with you. There is also a free campaigned provided which is already readily available for free elsewhere (ignore the statistics and number in it, I just used it purely for the story element), you are also free to write your own campaign. All you need to get your hands on are some 6 and 20-sided dice. There are also many places on the internet already where you can simulate this dice rolls. Enjoy, we had a right laugh doing this and then were really engaged!

Sums & Difference - Mental maths with 2 digit numbers - Fun game with 7 boards

This was a starter activity for Year 7 originally but I ended up using it for many KS3 class. You are provided with a ‘Blockbuster’ board and 6 double digit numbers. Each cell on the board can be won by finding the two numbers that add or subtract to give the number contained within that cell. One player/team is trying to create a path from top to bottom while the other player/team are attempting to create a path from right to left. The winner is the player/team to complete their path (a draw is impossible). Start with the toss of a coin and then teams take alternating goes - spice it up by adding a timer ! You receive: Instructions + 6 game boards + 1 game board which is offered free separately.

Measurement  Problem Solving KS2 Romans

Measurement Problem Solving KS2 Romans

This activity combined our History topic of Romans, with our Maths focus of measurement, plus a little bit of shapes and fractions thrown as an assessment of the previous units taught. Students receive a letter from Emperor Hadrian, with the command to rebuild sections of Hadrian`s Wall. They then worked in differientiated groups for calculate the correct measurements for the wall. Once the correct measurements had been calculated they then used their knowledge of 3-D shapes to build the wall. I have included the activity and instructions in pdf and word format for editing. My class loved it, but I have to be honest - it took them all morning! Learning Objectives covered: Geometry: Property of Shapes: • Draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials. Measurement: • Measure, compare, and add lengths (m/cm/mm) • Continue to measure using the appropriate tools and units, progressing to using a wider range of measures, including comparing and using mixed units and simple equivalents of mixed units (for example, 5m = 500cm). Fractions: • Recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects. • Recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10

Transformations of graphs Introduction

Transformations of graphs Introduction

These two lessons and worksheets are lessons which cover the translations of graphs and the knowledge of stretching a graph by a given scale factor. The lesson is aimed at the students working out the translation which takes place by initially drawing certain graphs and then linking them the original graph drawn. This is then followed by a series of examples. The second lesson is similar in that the students are encouraged to draw a series of graphs before linking them to the original as a stretch. The lesson then continues with a series of worked examples. Both lessons have a worksheet with solutions.
