This is a set of very useful challenging questions, which are to an extent open ended. There are many ways in which you could use these, they would work well as a 'maths challenge of the week' or something similar with a prize for the best answers. Or you could use them as starters to get students thinking, or you could use them in a carousel lesson with a different problem on each table. Thank you for sharing.
A revision or homework resource to give students the opportunity to practise lots of different skills. \n\nI used this with Year 10 as a homework sheet so that they did not forget things learned earlier in the school year.
A booklet I have put together to use for a Year 8 pupil I tutor. <br /><br />It is suitable for the higher end of KS3 and the lower graded questions of GCSE.<br /><br />It includes a variety of topics in the following order:<br />Multiplication, Division, Indices, Fractions, Factors & Multiples, Rearranging Equations, Solving Equations, Factorising Quadratics, Straight Line Graphs, Simultaneous Equations, Bearings, Angles, Pythagoras' Theorem, Trigonometry, Rounding, Negative Numbers, Standard Form and Averages.<br /><br />The booklet can be used as a way to assess pupils and identify areas that need working on.
There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.
Cut out slips of papers and hand to students. Students work out the mean,mode,median,IQR and standard deviation.<br />
The person who has the highest value in each category wins.<br />
No-one should win twice!<br />
