A good resource based on the topic of enlarging shapes. I like the fact that their are opportunities to get the pupils to the board and draw some enlarged shapes. Some really nice examples to check for pupil understanding here too.
This is a complete lesson on ‘Enlarging Shapes’ that is suitable for GCSE Higher & Foundation and KS3 students. The lesson is designed for the new GCSE specification.<br />
The pack contains a full lesson plan, along with accompanying resources, including a student worksheet and suggested support and extension activities. <br />
A comprehensive lesson on enlarging different objects by positive and fractional scale factors. Starter revisits previous learning. Several task and extension activities provided with fully detailed answers throughout. Mini-plenary and plenary activities embedded. Worksheets provided at the end of the Powerpoint.
I used this PPT in an assembly to my tutor group to insprire them about how much they could achieve if they work hard.
I have had to amend this resource as unfortunately three of the people who were in the PPT have since had very negative press (not so inspiring). You may need to add some more. I have included Bios of the people in the ppt.
I Appreciate your feedback!
Christmaths probability Quiz and reindeer race. This is a quiz I wrote for year 8 after doing the reindeer race with them. The dice race is nothing new it just has a christmassy twist! Some of the quiz questions may need changing as they are relevant to my class but not all...
This is a notebook I created to teach about bearings. The activity that I set them was to use the instructions to find hidden treasure in the classroom. I have not included the map of my classroom as it would be meaningless but I did include the instructions I used as an example for you. I did this with a lower set in year 8 so did not use a scale but it could be extended to think about scales. The pupils liked that they were able to then get out of their seats and find treasure!
This is a lesson plan on using two way tables to solve a worded problem. The worksheet I got from a colleague and I have amended it to add a differentiated help sheet. The worksheet includes the solutions. The powerpoint includes a starter on filling in a two-way table, then followed by an exam style problem which I usually get them to try to solve on their own before showing them how useful a two-way table is. Then the plenary is linking it to probability.
A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
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.
