To do with map/plan scales and working out lengths on the map or in real life

Practise making scale drawings with a ruler and protractor to answer questions about missing lengths. Questions include rectilinear shapes, pyramids, angles of elevation and depression and multi-stage journeys. No bearings are needed (only compass directions), but the answer to the final questions can be used to motivate the need to describe directions more precisely than with compass directions. Answers are provided.

This resource is for core and advanced ability KS4 students.
The resource consists of a lesson presentation and worksheet. The lesson presentation includes a starter and worked solutions to the questions on the worksheet. The lesson starts by considering scale drawings to be similar shapes whose lengths are measured in different units. The lesson then proceeds on how to construct a scale drawing with angles given as bearings, before considering how to measure and interpret the lengths and angles measured off the diagram.
The worksheet starts with two simpler questions, then two questions with accompanying diagrams before finishing with several questions where the student is expected to interpret the text in order to draw the scale diagram. Teachers may wish to limit core ability students to the first four questions, leaving the others as extension. Advanced students will be challenged by the expectation that they translate text into a diagrams.

A GCSE Maths Worksheet covering drawing and measuring angles
Suitable for GCSE Students sitting the 9 – 1, A-Level Maths students revision and some Key Stage 3 students.
Suitable for all the big examination boards including AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC.

Measurement- Measuring Bundle
This is a bundle of three complete and fully resourced lessons introducing pupils to measuring in Science.
The resources are…
Measuring Volume: This is an introductory practical lesson to demonstrate how pupils measure volume and teaches them the importance of accuracy.
This resource pack contains: A PPT (24 slides) and handouts (1 sheet) .
Included in this resource is two of our timers complete with MUSIC.
Activities include:
Starter Task: Thinking Skills question
Demonstration on how to accurately measure liquid.
Experiment on measuring different volumes
Plenary (Exit task) : Beat the clock
In our lessons, all key words are added to our KS3 Science - Scientific Vocabulary A-Z .
Measuring Time: This is an introductory practical lesson to demonstrate how pupils measure time and teaches them the importance of accuracy.
This resource pack contains: A PPT (14 slides) and handouts (2 sheets) .
Included in this resource is two of our timers complete with MUSIC.
Activities include:
Starter Task: Thinking Skills question
Activity on on recording time digitally. Pupils will find out when completing the challenges that they won’t be accurate. Therefore, they will want to repeat challenge reinforcing the need for repeat experiments to find averages.
Experiment on measuring different times and two practical challenges.
Plenary (Exit task) : Think, Pair Share- Please note…
This Exit Task/Plenary is designed to draw out the findings of the measuring time activities. These being that the children will learn that using a stop click to seconds and hundredths of seconds will give them a precise time. However, this is not 100% accurate due to human error (reaction times). You should discuss how to improve on accuracy ( use of repeats and find an average). In our lessons, all key words are added to our KS3 Science - Scientific Vocabulary A-Z .
Measuring Temperature: This is an introductory practical lesson to demonstrate how pupils measure temperature and teaches them the importance of accuracy.
This resource pack contains: A PPT (12 slides) and handouts (2 sheets) .
Included in this resource is two of our timers complete with MUSIC.
Activities include:
Starter Task: Thinking Skills question
Activity on on recording temperature. Pupils are asked to estimate the temperature of certain items and plot them on their worksheet. Then they are given the answer and asked to plot the temperatures correctly.
Experiment on measuring temperatures.
Plenary (Exit task) : Slap it up- Pupils are asked to write something they have learnt in the lesson and a question they would like to ask and slap it up on the board before they leave.
Physics: Measuring Force, Newton Meters.
This is a practical lesson introducing pupils to Newton meters.
Measuring Force:
Physics: Measuring Force, Newton Meters Lesson pack contains: A PPT (15 slides) and a peer assessment handout (1 sheet).
Activities include:
Starter Task: A Thinking Skills questions- measuring force.
Task 1: Pupils are introduced to Sir Isaac Newton and his invention, the Newton Meter. Then pupils are asked to measure everyday items and record this information in the form of a table in their exercise books.
Task 2: Pupils should then be given a spring and a hook and 5 weights (1-5 kilograms). They will need to hang the spring and add the weights one by one and measure the length of the spring each time a weight is added and record the data in the form of a table. They will then be asked to plot a line graph (you will need to provide graph paper for this task).
Task 3: Pupils will need to conclude on the results and describe the relationship between weights added and the length of the spring and link this to how a Newton meter works.
Included in this pack is a peer assessment sheet that can be used to mark the individual activities.
Exit task/Plenary: our interactive Starter and Plenary Prompt Selector that is worth £3.
In our lessons, all key words are added to our KS3 Science - Scientific Vocabulary A-Z .

Students are introduced to measuring volume with the key language presented and practised (volume, length, width, height, cube, cuboid).
2 page interactive worksheet with reading, writing, drawing and speaking activities.
Suitable for distance learning, home schooling, Primary and English as a Foreign Language students.

This is resource contains an exercise that gets the children to practice using a ruler; as well as a presentation on converting units of measure.
The worksheet asks students to measure the lines with their rulers. They then must convert from cm to mm. As an extension at the end, they are required to draw their own lines based on a length given in centimetres.
The presentation goes through how to convert from mm to cm, and from cm to m. There are exercised along the way to get the children practicing.
This lesson is suited for a Year 4 class or could be used for revision with Year 5.
The answers to the lengths are also included.
