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.<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!
