Revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! For use on pupil shared areas, all questions modeled on past SATs. <br />
Great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. <br />
This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests.<br />
Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. <br />
Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! <br />
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions!!- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)<br />
*** please message me via TES community if you have any questions regarding technical settings***
A revision power point containing 14 revision tables targeting key grade C topics with some of the grade B topics that a grade C pupil can attempt. Topics include solving equations, four rules of fractions, standard form, graphs etc. Topics are repeated on some slides for extra practice. Twelve topics are revised per slide. On power point so you can adapt/amend as you need. I found that one table lasts as a starter for 2 lessons allowing for approx. 15 mins at start of each lesson.
9 worksheets that explain the rules for indices.<br />
Work through how to multiply and divide powers and see how to deal with a 'power of a power'.<br />
Understand and practise using negative and fractional indices.<br />
Includes mixed revision sheets and answer pages.<br />
DfE reference N7, N6<br />

A plan listing key days, festivals, celebrations each month, that can be easily link to the listed area of maths. We use this as a department to ensure SMSC, cross curricular links, real life maths, maths in and out of the usual context, enhance and improve pupils problem solving and applying skills, encourage discussion and to ensure consistency and the sharing of planning, resources and good practice across the department. We are now at the point where pupils are creating their own. Each member of the department takes a unit and plans a series of starters relating to the key dates and themes on powerpoint. The rest of the department then just edit and adapt for their KS3 class.
A set of 100+ Plenary questions/tasks to use in your Mathematics lessons. Print, cut up and laminate each page of this resource before hole punching and binding the ‘sticks’ together for plenty of use in your lessons. Included in the resource, in addition to the 100+ questions/tasks are blank ‘sticks’ for you to create your own questions/tasks, plus suggestions as to how best use this resource with your students.

A collection of mathematical magic tricks for teachers. Particularly suitable for KS3 but also popular with older children. Each trick gives an anecdotal account of the effect being used in the classroom, followed by the explanation and teaching points if used for further work. Appendix includes details of simple sleights such as coin vanishes etc.
Guidelines and activities to present a unit on bridges in years 3-6.
In years 3 and 4 the work includes designing and building a bridge to cross a river.
Progression is assured in years 5 and 6 by asking the pupils to design a bridge that can open and close and/or can be lit up.
Adventure game in which students answer KS3 circle questions in order to rescue a princess. Teacher notes and answers are provided. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: parts of a circle, circumference, area, reverse questions: given circumference, find diameter and radius; given area, find radius and diameter. Go to my profile page to see the GCSE version including arc length and sector area and check out my other games.
Investigation and problem solving activity in which students identify all the different pentominoes, then fit them into shapes (50 different shapes, inc. 4 rectangles, 4 squares, 17 animals, 13 pictures (inc. car, train, plane, rocket, boat), 12 other shapes (inc. cross, yin and yang, heart)).
