Investigative Addition and Subtraction Mercedes Challenge.

Investigative Addition and Subtraction Mercedes Challenge.

Differentiated three ways. The children are given a brochure for Mercedes with differentiated products (e.g. leather seats, sat-nav etc.) and how much each item costs. Children must use their budget to customise their car with the things they would like. The aim is to get as close to their budget as possible, without going over it. Great activity to engage children, can be done in pairs or individually. Prices can be easily adapted and other items added or removed to further differentiate as needed. Makes a fantastic lesson and has been used with Ofsted/observations to great results!

Upper KS2 Maths Challenge - Money and Percentages

Can your students calculate their potential earnings after deducting tax, NHS and pension contributions? I did this lesson with a gifted and talented Maths group and they were amazed to see how much money they had left after deductions.

Core Skills Homework

Core Skills Homework

Homework which practices the core skills I blogged about here: http://pbrucemaths.weebly.com/blog/the-pareto-principle-in-maths. After they have had a homework on each skill, and received feedback, I now intend on setting one of these a week so they can continue to improve. Tip: when you generate the questions - save it as a PDF so you can print it of if a student loses it, or needs a new sheet. Also it means you can refer back to it in class if you peer mark it. It should fit to one A4 page (landscape) - if it doesn't check your print settings are on "narrow margins"

Morning Maths Challenges - Y5/Y6

Morning Maths Challenges - Y5/Y6

This is 14 weeks worth of Morning Maths Challenges. Each week contains 5 days worth of questions (4 for week one due an INSET in my school) with answers. Each day contains 15 tricky, 15 trickier and 15 trickiest maths questions for children to answer. I have used these in my Y5 class for the past two years and I found that they help children to make progress - I use it as a revision task every morning and spend approximately 20-30 minutes on this task each day.
