Sort into three groups - 14 statements. Does what it says on the tin really. It should encourage some discussion in class at the very least.

A collection of challenging questions grouped by topic and ordered in levels aiming to promote discussion of topics learnt.
I find that the questions are best used as starters or plenaries to get pupils discussing whether the statement is always true, sometimes true or never true. Some do not have a definite answer and should encourage some debate!

Two sets of Always Sometimes Never cards for use with different ability levels, tackling 2-d and 3-d shapes, and some mensuration knowledge

Children decide whether the given statement is true all of the time, some of the time or never.
I used these sheets to follow up a lesson where children needed to make a decision and prove to the rest of the class why they were correct. They needed to make an argument and provide evidence in the form of examples or diagrams and present this to the class.
There is space for a picture to be stuck in of the children presenting their thinking

Look at the fourteen statements and decide whether they are always, sometimes or never true.

Students must classify statements about modulus graphs and transformations as always, sometimes or never true. Students should give reasons for their answer - in particular is they think something is sometimes true they should explain under what conditions it would and would not be true.

An ASN task designed to introduce properties of 2D shapes. There are four cards for each category.
A suggested activity is to ask students to arrange the cards under the three headings of 'Always True', 'Sometimes True' and 'Never True', along with a sketch to demonstrate why the statement does, does not or sometimes works.

Decide whether these statements are Always, Sometimes or Never true. Cut out and stick.

Two versions are included -
Version 1 (Worksheet) - Students determine whether each statement is "always true," "sometimes true," or "never true." They color each one accordingly and end up with a design that can be checked quickly for accuracy (but cannot be easily predicted by students).
Version 2 (Sorting Activity) - Students can work alone or in pairs or small groups. Students sort the statement cards into the correct category on the sorting mat ("always true," "sometimes true," or "never true"). This works great as a learning station. You can print the cards on colored card stock and laminate them to re-use each year.
Get your students thinking critically about situations concerning points, lines, planes, and angles.
Statements include the following terms:
congruent
measure
intersect
adjacent
perpendicular, parallel
acute, obtuse, right
supplement, complement
vertex
coplanar

Geometry worksheet activity: Cut out the facts on triangles and quadrilaterals and put them in to groups: Always True; Sometimes True; Never True.

these are cards with equations on them and students need to sort out if they are always, sometimes or never true.
there is also a worksheet to make their own.

Use the statements on the powerpoint to stimulate mathematical discussion. Encourage children to prove or disprove the statements with a variety of examples e.g. 'to x 10, add a 0 enables exploration of addition, place value, decimals etc.
Differentiated worksheets could be used to continue work, for homework, etc

A nice ppt to build up from demonstration of interior angle sum of a triangle, through special triangles, an exam style q, and finally onto quadrilaterals and a nice sometimes always never as a plenary...

Cards to assess understanding and generate discussion, with a PowerPoint version of the same cards for plenary.

The first word document contains:
2 worksheets
1 always, sometimes or never AFL task
1 homework sheet using the clouding method

AfL in Maths, encourages mathematical thinking - sometimes true, always true, never true. A set of cards for talking about algebraic statements. Plus a powerpoint version for discussion, and a powerpoint version with the answers.

Children decide whether the given statement is true all of the time, some of the time or never.
I used these sheets to follow up a lesson where children needed to make a decision and prove to the rest of the class why they were correct. They needed to make an argument and provide evidence in the form of examples or diagrams and present this to the class.

Students/Teachers may want to create a three groups called ’Always true | Sometimes true | Never true’

Part of the NCETM 'What Makes a Good Resource' series. A set of 15 cards containing statements on them. The idea is for the students to work in pairs and discuss which ones are Always True, Sometimes True or Never True. Some are likely to be placed quite easily and other I deliberately wrote to be provocative and promote discussion.

PPT using Kagan Cooperative Learning strategies to practice school activities and expressions of frequency (always, sometimes, never, etc.)

Test your pupils' knowledge of negative numbers and expose misconceptions with this mathematical reasoning task. Pupils must determine whether the 12 statements are always, sometimes or never true. Encourage literacy by getting them to justify and discuss their answers. Full instructions, ideas for support & extension and a solution are provided in the resource. What more could you need to engage your students?
