Shape terminology fill- in sheet

Shape terminology fill- in sheet

I think I originally devised this to accompany a PowerPoint presentation, though the presentation in question is the intellectual property of my workplace and not me. Anyway you might find it useful as an accompaniment to your lesson if you’re covering terms like congruent and similar. It’s designed to be kept handy for revision/ homework purposes.

Higher Non Calc Problem solving questions with answers, from Edexcel Problem sets

Higher Non Calc Problem solving questions with answers, from Edexcel Problem sets

I have put together a selection of problems from the Edexcel problem solving packs 2, 3 and 4. The questions should all be suitable for the non calculator papers and include solutions. I have also included some questions that are deemed to be calculator paper questions but can be answered without a calculator to further enhance and practise problem solving skills. I printed them out on A3 sheets and allowed students to work as a group of 3 -4 to solve the problems - feedback from students was positive.

Crack The Safe - Congruence and Similarity

Crack The Safe - Congruence and Similarity

Another “Crack The Safe” activity but on congruence and similarity this time. This enables students to self-check answers as their answer needs to appear in the options. It should generate a bit of discussion too, but the intention for me is to use these as starters or plenaries. Amended question 2.

007 Problem-solving, geometry puzzle, G&T yr7

The problem of the dropped box of matches, pt 1 “Isabella Ringing dropped a box of matches, the box opened and the matches went everywhere. As she went to pick them up she knocked some of them into different positions. This gave her an idea for some puzzles to set for her friends.” A set of six matchstick puzzles to promote problem-solving skills - part 1 of 2. Suggested that it is used alongside ‘sticks’ of some sort so that kids can physcially explore the problem. We Solve Problems is a charity, founded by three PhD mathematicians, whose aim is to promote the use of advanced mathematics within secondary schools. We want to encourage creative mathematical thinking, to develop a skill within pupils for presenting their results clearly and coherently, as well as promoting personal problem-solving skills. Visit us at wesolveproblems. org. uk. We would very much appreciate it if you could take time to follow us, and hopefully review this resource as well, as this helps others to find us. Thank you.

Mathematics Revision Mats

Mathematics Revision Mats

Please use these mats as a revision games to play in groups in the classroom. They should be printed on A3 paper and laminated so that it can be re-used. This means that students can write their initials on their square instead of using counters. The way the game is played can be manipulated. However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet): Roll Two Die to Create a Co-ordinate. Place your coloured counter on the square that the roll corresponds to. If answer is correct, receive points as follows: Points: Red squares are worth 1, Yellow squares score 2 points, and Green squares score 5 points Grades: Red squares are 4/5 Grade, Yellow squares and 6/7 Grade and Green Squares and 8/9 Grade answers Please use a great revision resource for group work. Please also leave any feedback for future revision mats and how to improve them.
