#### Clumsy Clive On Pythagoras and Trigonometry

(10)
Clive has two homeworks to tackle but is making mistakes once again. The first homework involves right-angled triangles, the second a question in 3D and non-right-angled triangles. Spot the mistakes, correct them and then explain what Clive needs to do in the future.

#### Clumsy Clive on Indices

(11)
This was an idea I had in on the way to work one morning - Clive makes mistakes on his homework and you need to correct them, explaining the mistake he’s made in each case. I intend to use this as a plenary or starter to check learning etc. They should create discussion too. There are 5 different mistakes to correct on two separate sheets; number 2 cover negative and fractional indices.

#### Clumsy Clive On Averages and Range

(9)
Five more questions that Clive seems a bit confused on. These questions involve median and mean from sets of data, plus calculatiing the mean from a frequency table and estimating the mean from grouped data. I will probably throw a couple more questions in verbally (find the modal group etc) whilst discussing the answers and reasons why as a class.

#### Clumsy Clive On Angles

(11)
Four of Clive’s “homework” sheets to correct and explain where he’s gone wrong. There are four to complete: a “basic” one, one on parallel lines, one on polygons and finally one on circle theorems. The basic and parallel lines ones have 5 questions to correct; the other two have 4 questions to look at. These are designed to encourage discussion between students and then to share that discussion with the teacher as there’s not always one way to correct a question. I introduced these before the holidays and they went very well.
