Treasure Hunt activity (like match cards but round the classroom - see instructions) on calculating averages, differentiated with 2 levels, calculating simple averages and more problem solving questions.
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.The questions themselves are aimed at consolidating fairly basic (Level 4, occasionally 5) number skills, and include:- multiplying and dividing by powers of ten- ratio - fractions of amount - adding two fractions- money and change- substation of positive integers into simple expressions Some of the questions are deliberately written to require an element of 'persistent problem solving', because my students need practice at this too.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.
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!
KS3 maths investigation. This year the Queen celebrates her Diamond Jubilee. This resource consists of three mathematical mysteries which are based around some of the celebrations taking place. The first mystery requires the use of bearings and constructions, the second probability and proportion and the third distance, time and ratio. These mysteries can be used in line with your curriculum or as a stand alone lesson as part of the celebrations! Enjoy!
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.
This resource is an activity drawing on real action research using actual raw data as an introduction to quantitative data analysis.
The students work in small groups, focusing on one set of raw data each. They discuss any problems with the data and how they would analyse it and present the results. They then present their findings to the rest of the class.
Extension work could involve students designing their own questionnaire and carrying it out before analysing the data and writing up their work as a small-scale research project.
New for 2016: a MUST for all KS2 primary schools + children preparing for SATs! This resource allows a student to choose a weak topic area of theirs (personalised learning) from a menu of 48 topics and instantly opens a PDF of past SATs questions specific to that topic. All 48 topic PDFs are housed on my Google drive account which can only be accessed via this single file. All questions contain a Youtube Button next to them, so if a student needs help, they simply HIT THE YOUTUBE button to zoom off to a mini Youtube tutorial specific to that question on GHammond's Youtube channel. The Youtube channel has over 140,000 hits and rising from those who used it during last year's SATs. Also included are the One-A-Day Mini Maths Vidamins for Y5+ Y6 and links to Thinking Outside theBox puzzle videos! This single PDF could easily be placed on single computers in a school or networked or even placed on a school website for maximum impact and usage! It could be used in whole class lessons in an ICT suite or from the comfort of a student's own living room on their tablet. Schools placing it on their website would be giving students the ability to access and revise for their SATs from home across multiple platforms - laptops, tablets and phones. Students could even revise on their phone on a car journey! P.S. The ginger haired boy on the file is a picture of me from 1986!
