Prime Number Cards Poster

A tweet by Sarah Carter put me onto these prime number cards from SaneSchool. The original Prime Number Card is from Paul Zeitz on Math Teachers Circle and SaneSchool extended the idea to include all prime numbers up to 10,000. You can download the posters as PDF or JPG. The ZIP file contains my original Affinity Designer file for the poster and all JPG and PDF versions. The font is Open Sans (free on Google Fonts). Please consider giving me ⭐️ or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if you like this!

Times Tables tests for Year 3

Times Tables tests for Year 3

22 times tables tests which I use with my Year 3 pupils. They focus only on x2, x5, x10 which are Year 2 objectives, then x3, x4, x8 for Year 3 objectives. The idea is to deepen learning following the mastery approach with missing numbers problems to solve, and using the inverse calculation.

End of Term Games

End of Term Games

This activities are aimed at key stage 3 students but could be used as revision for students who are revising for their GCSE examination. Each round consists of four questions. Print the slides 8 to 13 on A4 paper and place one printed slide per table. Students are put into pairs (either by choice or teacher selection) and are given a copy of slide 14 and a few sheets of pieces of A4 paper. The pairs are designated a starting table and the timer (slide 2) is started. The students are then given 5 minutes to answer the four questions on that table. Once the five minutes is up the students move clockwise to the next table and start the next set of four questions and the timer of slide 3 is started. This continues until all students have completed the six tables worth of questions. The answering of the questions takes no more than 30 minutes. Students then remain at their final table, swap their answer sheet with the nearest table and the answers are produced. At this stage I go through the questions before revealing the answers. In this way the students have had a go at GCSE style foundation questions and have also seen a demonstration as to how they should have been answered. Finally, students add up their score and the highest score get a prize!

Prime Factors 2 (Loop Cards)

Prime Factors 2 (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 finding the prime factorisation of different integers. 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💬.

Times Table (multiplication) games. A complete set!

Times Table (multiplication) games. A complete set!

This is a fantastic set of resources for practicing times tables. They are great for quick activities at the start of lessons or in quick maths slots. The children will role two dice and add the digits together. They will then multiply this by a given times table and place a O or X on the corresponding square. The aim of the game is to get 4 in a row. Children are able to block each other if they happen to role the number required. Game can be played in twos, however alternative versions are possible such as three in a row with three or four children using a different colour pen each. An excellent, fun way to revise times tables!

Finally finding Lowest Common Multiples. Factors and Multiples Game. There is a similar game using only the numbers 1- 25, but it doesn’t have a solution. This puzzle has been changed so pupil’s don’t feel cheated and can find a solution! Investigations using Indices. Prime Pirate Maze. A very simple way of reinforcing the prime numbers and the “look” of a prime number. With less able groups write on the bottom of the sheet all the prime numbers from 1 to 100 as a reminder. The strategy for solving the maze is interesting to watch. Some pupils start from different points trying to find routes. Some simply colour in the prime numbers at random until the routes appear! A Prime Maze. Prime and Square Numbers. A snakes and ladders game used to reinforce prime numbers and square numbers. It makes it a lot more interesting if pupils have to land exactly on the win square to finish. Multiplying by Powers of 10. Dividing by Powers of 10. Zap to Zero. Place Value. A game using the skills of place value. Stamps Four different investigations using stamps as a central theme.Probability (Equally Likely Outcomes). Questions based around equally likely outcomes.

Difficult Highest Common Factors

Difficult Highest Common Factors

Determining the highest common factor is a significant step in simplifying fractions. This can be difficult when dealing with larger numbers. Students may become frustrated and disengaged at an early stage if this important prerequisite to algebra does not go well. This lesson package teaches students a simple, trustworthy method to find the answer more quickly than simply guessing. In a few easy steps, they will even be able to find highest common factors of numbers above 100,000. This package includes a lesson plan, a worksheet, an answer key, and differentiated teaching suggestions. Lesson Plan What are we learning? (Including a brief review) Why is this important? What can I do with this in the real world? How does it work? (Step by step and fully annotated) Why does it work? (Theoretical underpinnings) Worksheet Two “almost complete” answers requiring students to fill in the blanks Two questions with the answer started Six questions requiring students to go through the entire solution on their own Answer Key Every answer shows the complete process, start to finish Unusual cases include additional explanations May be printed and/or distributed separately from the questions Approaches to Teaching General thoughts on teaching the concept and resource use A section for students who struggle with Maths A section for students who excel in Maths The file is professionally designed using an equation editor for proper formatting. The layout and graphics are visually appealing and deliberately structured to help students succeed. All materials are completely original.
