#### GSCE Maths: Manipulating surds lesson plan

Activities to enable learners of secondary mathematics to identify equivalent surds and develop their ability to simplify expressions involving surds.

This sheet starts off with some examples and questions about surds - pretty easy ones to be honest. There is a surds 'joke' at the end to complete. This was an attempt to make surds a little more interesting and to show just how easy they really are.

The resource aims to give pupils an understanding of how histograms are useful in the accurate portrayal of data, in preference to using bar charts with unequal intervals.
Having used the slides, there is then a matching exercise for pupils to complete, where they have to match each histogram with two bar charts that could go represent the same data as the histogram.
There are some further resources available via the webpage link.
I hope that colleagues will find these resources useful.

I found a graph on the BBC News website showing the breakdown of the cost of fuel in Britain and thought that the students could calculate the percentage of each cost from the price of one litre.

Three codebreakers ranging from easy to difficult as you go through them, but all with a Christmas joke (made up by me, so I apologise now) and with all the questions being Christmas-y too. All sorts of topics covered. Hopefully errors corrected (I found one on each sheet!).

A progress sheet to print out, questions on various topics to check knowledge and focus revision in the places where it's needed. This starts at measuring and drawing, types of angle (G/1), on a line/around a point (F/1), triangles and quadrilaterals (E/2), parallel lines (D/3), polygons (C/4), bearings (C/4&5) and circle theorems (A/7&8).

These are homework sheets which also contain a QR code to a tutorial video if the students require. I have used similar before and parents (and children) have found the QR code very useful and should avoid the "I don't get it" excuse as they can get help via the QR code. The tutorials have been made using the app Explain Everything if you are interested. Topics covered include indices, time (calculations etc), rounding and estimations, place value, multiples and factors, numerical sequences, long multiplication and division. Each sheet comes with answers.

The tutorials have been made using the app Explain Everything if you are interested. Topics covered include angles (line, point, triangles, polygons, parallel lines), perimeter and area (rectangles, triangles, trapeziums, circles), surface area of cubes/cuboids, construction. Each one comes with answers too.
