What Was The Question? Christmas Theme

(11)
The students are given the answer and asked to fill in the gaps in the question. Topics used involve probability, equations, simultaneous equations, fractions, percentages, ratio, speed, distance, time and many others. Some of the questions allow for multiple answers so discussion could be had. Designed to be used as starters/plenaries to get the grey matter moving. The Christmas theme runs through every question and is a tad tenuous at times but there you go.

A Question of Algebra - What Happened Next?

(11)
Choose one of the 6 options and then say what happens next when solving the equation. I used a template (with permission!) for the music from the excellent resource written by DanielBurke - check his resources out as they are top quality. The animations are little clunky, but do the job - I'm sure you could all make it look like Avatar! If you find the answers already on the slide then powerpoint has messed up the animations. Just contact me and I can send you my version.

What Was The Question? - Ratio and Proportion Special

(6)
Four sets of four problems where students have the answer but there are blanks in the questions which require filling in. This is designed to create discussion in class and hopefully provides natural differentiation (stretch the “top end” by finding the general solution where possible compared to finding a single solution). I will be using these as starters or plenaries as I believe they will develop deeper understanding of topics, but feel free to use them as you like (you will as you don’t need me to hold your hand).

What Was The Question? - Probability Special

(5)
Four sets of four probability problems where parts of the question are missing but you have the answer. This is designed to get students thinking more deeply about topics and some questions allow for various answers which leads to differentiation as students can be asked to give the possible range of answers. This should lead to discussion in class.

This is designed to get students thinking rather than just blindly following a mathematical recipe. There a four sets of 4 problems which all have the same answer (given in the centre of the screen). Each question has a blank for the students to fill in and sometimes there is more than one answer for the blank. This particular one covers probability, percentages, fractions, ratio, angles, equations, gradient, indices and other topics. I will be using these as starters to get students thinking.

This is designed to get students thinking rather than just blindly following a mathematical recipe. There a four sets of 4 problems which all have the same answer (given in the centre of the screen). Each question has a blank for the students to fill in and sometimes there is more than one answer for the blank. This particular one covers probability, percentages, fractions, ratio, angles, equations, equations of lines and other topics. I will be using these as starters to get students thinking from the off and will produce more if they work!

Each question has a blank for the students to fill in and sometimes there is more than one answer for the blank. This particular one covers fractions, decimals, percentages, sequences, probability, expressions (algebra), quadratics, standard form, indices and other topics. I will be using these as starters to get students thinking.

Scatter Graphs - Lesson and GCSE Questions

This is just a lesson on scatter graphs that I wanted so that I could just hand out one booklet and then teach the class without the faff of them drawing axes etc. It goes from simple plotting to describing correlation to using a 'line of best fit'. Two sets of questions depending on which Key Stage you are teaching.

This is designed to get students thinking rather than just blindly following a mathematical recipe. There a four sets of 4 problems which all have the same answer (given in the centre of the screen). Each question has a blank for the students to fill in and sometimes there is more than one answer for the blank. This particular one covers probability,fractions, ratio, angles in polygons, solving equations, sequences, area and other topics. I will be using these as starters to get students thinking. One error corrected in the answers! (I need to read the question.)

What Was The Question? 6

Four screens each with four questions that have the same answer but the question is missing information; can your class work out what information is missing? This is designed to create discussion (some questions have multiple answers possible) and I intend to use these as starters. Topics include ratio, probability, solving equations, indices, angles and many more.

Four sets of four problems where students have the answer but there are blanks in the questions which require filling in. This is designed to create discussion in class and hopefully provides natural differentiation (stretch the “top end” by finding the general solution where possible compared to finding a single solution). It focuses on the more “challenging” aspects of indices including negative and fractional. I will be using these as starters or plenaries as I believe they will develop deeper understanding of topics, but feel free to use them as you like.

Using the format of my favourite daytime television programme, can you calculate whether these people have made a profit or loss, and what the percentage of that may be. There is also a question regarding rental income at the end.

I've been asked a few times what these are like so thought I'd put one of each "Number", "Algebra", "Geometry" and "Data" out there for people to peruse at their leisure. These are worksheets that can be used for either revision, homework or those students who have missed work with each containing a QR code that will scan to a short tutorial video.

Four sets of four problems where students have the answer but there are blanks in the questions which require filling in. This is designed to create discussion in class and hopefully provides natural differentiation (stretch the “top end” by finding the general solution where possible compared to finding a single solution). Whilst some of the questions can be answered without using algebra, this could be a way of convincing that the letters in algebra are just numbers! I will be using these as starters or plenaries as I believe they will develop deeper understanding of topics, but feel free to use them as you like.

What Was The Question? - Average and Range Special

(3)
Four lots of 4 average and range problems where the students are given the answer but need to find the blanks in the question. Some have one possible solution and some have many solutions which automatically builds in differentiation as you could task students with finding the range of possible solutions. I use these as starters/plenaries but use them however you like (assuming you like them).

Four screens each with four questions that have the same answer but the question is missing information; can your class work out what information is missing? This is designed to create discussion (some questions have multiple answers possible and can be extended by asking students to find general solutions) and I intend to use these as starters. All these are number based questions involving fractions, percentages, ratio, directed numbers and more. I use these as starters; I put them on the board and students can get straight on with them upon their arrival.
