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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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?

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

The activity gets the students to think about whether the rule is always, sometimes or never true
Depending on the ability of the students they may be able to construct a proof (there is a slide with scaffolding for any students struggling with this)

Using the story of BGT's Susan Boyle, an assembly which challenges stereotyping.

I've adapted a Literature Circle task to aid in the study of Never Let Me Go, which I plan to use next year with my top set year 11 group. I've also included the lessons I plan to use to go through the chapters of the novel - reading is done outside of lesson, so you may find that you go through each 'lesson' PPT at a faster rate than one per lesson, so don't be scared off by amount of 'lessons'!

Two mock English Literature exams that I've created for Never Let Me Go.

Created for a KS3 class but can be used for any class for forming and solving equations.
There area four stages to this booklet:
Perimeter
Area
Angles
Compound Shapes
Each section also has a ‘Always, sometimes, never’ reasoning question.
Print as a booklet (2 to a side) for cheap printing!
Just starting to put some resources out so any positive or constructive feedback would be much appreciated

All triangles and quarilaterals plus a regular polygon slide with 8 statements that students must decide whether they are always, sometimes or never true. This should create discussion. I have said that squares are a type of rectangle, and a rhombus is a type of parallelogram.
