Ratio and Proportion Revision. Treasure Hunt activity (like match cards but round the classroom - see instructions) on sharing in a ratio. Differentiated with 2 levels, low level involves questions of the form 'share x in the following ratio&', higher level involve worded questions.

I created this as a revision activity (amended from a resource I found on here)\n\nThe way I see this working is by putting the clues around the room and the students have to answer the question and mark that answer off their grid and the one that is left is the where the treasure is buried.\n\nPlease rate/ leave comments! Thanks
This is an excel file that automatically generates 'new' sets of 12 questions for a 'Treasure Hunt' type activity. Multiple-choice and full answer sheets (for teacher) are also automatically generated. There are also scaffolded answer sheets to help weaker students.<br /><br /><br />The questions themselves are aimed at consolidating fairly basic (Level 4, occasionally 5) number skills, and include:<br />- multiplying and dividing by powers of ten<br />- ratio <br />- fractions of amount <br />- adding two fractions<br />- money and change<br />- substation of positive integers into simple expressions <br /><br />Some of the questions are deliberately written to require an element of 'persistent problem solving', because my students need practice at this too.<br /><br />Do not be deterred by the poor visual appearance of the excel file data itself - the question print-outs themselves are fine.
KS3 Maths Game. Questions require pupils to find a fraction of a given quantity. Plenary or starter game based on the tv show catchphrase. Pupils must correctly answer the question on one of the rectangles to reveal part of the 'catchphrase behind&'. A great way to engage pupils and an assessment of understanding. Easily adapted to suit other topics or abilities.
A set of four Olympic themed mysteries. Students are given the set of clues and in groups must work together to solve the problem. I have tried to make these real-to-life so the stats and facts are all accurate. Each of the mysteries focuses on a different skill ranging from speed distance and time to surface area. Hopefully these will be ideal for Olympic themed lessons or the end of term. Have a look on my website www.numberloving.co.uk for some Olympic themed top trumps to use as well.
This is a board game which requires students to answer questions on BIDMAS, they then go backwards or forwards by the answer. I would suggest the students play in threes and the winner is the first player to get around the board three times. This makes a nice main activity or plenary. It is differentiated so there are two different levels, orange is easier and green is more challenging. I photocopy each colour onto opposite sides of one sheet of A3 and laminate.
This is a set of top trumps cards to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee, the cards feature well known royal faces and the questions are all based around the number 60. The questions involve fractions, BIDMAS and some decimals. This would be an ideal starter as part of your lessons in the build up to the Diamond Jubilee. Or you could use these in conjunction with the Diamond Jubilee Mysteries (see my other resources) for a royal lesson!
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation.
This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes
RECOMMENDED by the TES panel. Adventure game in which students answer averages questions in order to progress through a haunted house. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 8 questions on mean, median, mode, mean and median from ungrouped and grouped frequency tables. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
Featured in the TES Newsletter. Adventure game in which students answer probability questions in order to rescue a princess. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. 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: OR and AND questions, complementary events, combined events (inc. 'exactly' questions and 'at least' questions), conditional probability. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
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.
