A collection of multiple choice quizzes. Cover most KS3 and KS4 topics. Good for revision or to be chopped up and used as starters or plenaries in other PowerPoint's. Also good if you accidentally pack away 5 minutes early and need a filler or kids turn up from assembly late and your lessons gone out of the window.
Mathematics Revision Cards/Activities Book
A 39 page resource of the revision cards/activities I have used with my classes when finishing topics or when revising for exams. Included in the resource are templates for you/your students to create your own revision cards. There are over 10 different revision cards to create/use. I have also provided examples/pictures of cards I have made, and some they have created too! All instructions to create each card are included in the resource.<br />

Transformations booklets (36 pages)
Four booklets over 36 pages covering transformations (excluding negative and fractional scale factors). A second copy of these booklets containing answers is also included. The booklets cover doing and describing, of course, and they really allow learners to build their skills from a very basic level. All work can be completed in the booklets.

Gangsta Granny  David Walliams  Study Booklet & Poem
This unit of work is presented as an illustrated booklet that follows each chapter of David Walliams book  Gangsta Granny. It has been designed to help developing readers engage with and extend their comprehension of the story through a range of activities including; finding answers to set questions, word search, poetry, creative and report writing and drawing. It looks sensitively at the exploration of an eleven year old boy's emotions as he experiences the love and loss of a close relative. It also gives us a humorous glimpse into the shady realms of 'cat burglary'. It is one of a series of my David Walliams booklets. Good for guided reading and extended reading homework. Illustrations used are by 'Openclipart'. There is also an original poem about a child's Granny  can be used to encourage pupils to create their own.

GCSE Foundation Maths Complete Revision AQA Edexcel
A GCSE Foundation Maths PowerPoint presentation I created from some revision worksheets I use. It contains slides on how to answer all the types of questions that may come up in the foundation exam. It was created with AQA and Edexcel (foundation) in mind, but may be suitable for other exam boards too. <br />
<br />
Additionally, could be good revision for Higher GCSE students too. I use it with my high KS3 Students as they are more than capable understanding the material.<br />
<br />
I have split it up into four areas: Number, Algebra, Data/statistics, and Shape/Space/Measures. <br />
<br />
All funds raised by the sale of this resource will be donated to the NSPCC.<br />

Factorising Quadratics Lesson(s)
This a complete set of lessons on factorising quadratic expressions.<br />
Starter includes expanding single and double brackets, all answers included<br />
Then, a nice 'Products and Sums' task where students, on mini whiteboards, find which numbers have a product of ... and a sum of... .<br />
LOs, before examples for you to cover with your class on each permutation of signs in the brackets once factorised  a very scaffolded approach to suit lower ability students.<br />
All answers included for questions posed to students.<br />
Other starter activity is to find pairs of expressions that match before continuing with the series of lessons.<br />
Finally, a 'My favourite No' (see my blog mrcollinsmaths.blogspot.co.uk) plenary task to review students learning.

Mathematics of Measures I  Units and Lengths L4+
A couple of lessons introducing metric and imperial measures and their symbols. It then moves onto estimating and measuring lengths, before finishing with conversions between different measures of length (L5).<br />
<br />
Borrow fromthe scientists a set of 1m rulers to add a kinesthetic aspect to the measuring. You may even set a minicompetition for most accurate estimates.<br />
<br />

Plotting coordinates using up to four quadrants!
I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :)
