A 5 question quiz to assess one of the GCSE Maths Takeaway topics. Visit http://www.mrbartonmaths.com/gcsetakeaway.htm for exam questions, videos and solutions to GCSE Maths Takeaway.These free Diagnostic Questions quizzes allow you and your students to identify, understand and resolve key misconceptions. Your students can answer them on their mobiles, tablets or computers. If they get a question wrong, they can access 100s of explanations written by students from all around the world until they find one that makes sense to them. As a teacher, you are presented with the data from each quiz, together with your students' explanations, and the option to compare results with any other cohort, thus giving you deep insight into your students' level of understanding.To learn more about the many exciting features available on Diagnostic Questions, please watch our tutorials.
A series of tasks contained in one document. A starter about drawing and identifying polygons on a grid followed by a structured task to find the sum of interior angles of polygons. Pupils then use the sums to find unknown angles before investigating exterior angles. An exit ticket to check understanding is also included.
Find the missing angles in each of the polygons. Students will need to know how to work out the total angle sum in each polygon before they attempt this worksheet.
Angles are all multiples of 5 so this could be done without a calculator.
Finishes with some work on regular polygons.
GCSE Solving simultaneous equations using a graphical method. This worksheet only has straight line graphs. No curves. I haven’t put numbers on the axes (way too fiddly in word when I’m on a time limit) but they are intended to go up in ones. As always, if you use it - please review it. Eek! Q6 has a slight mistake. It should be -x+y
Need to spice up this rather dry topic.
For this dot to dot have students join question number to answer, e.g. Q1 find 10% of 80 so join 1 to 8. You must say to them to then do Q8 rather than 2 for two reasons:
1. it's quicker as you know where dot 8 is and don&'t need to waste time searching for dot 2.
2. The questions gradually get harder around the shape.
I have created this for a year 5 top set maths group. It is differentiated 3 ways, yellow being the less able, green able and pink more able.
This links in very heavily with shape as I am teaching this following 3 weeks on shape, space and measure, so it will continue to embed their knowledge of quadrilaterals, types of triangles, angles and parallel and perpendicular lines.
Hope this is useful! Have included photos of what it should look like once points have been plotted, hopefully I haven't made any silly mistakes! :-)
Adventure game in which students answer KS3 circle questions in order to rescue a princess. Teacher notes and answers are provided. 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: parts of a circle, circumference, area, reverse questions: given circumference, find diameter and radius; given area, find radius and diameter. Go to my profile page to see the GCSE version including arc length and sector area and check out my other games.
Investigation and problem solving activity in which students identify all the different pentominoes, then fit them into shapes (50 different shapes, inc. 4 rectangles, 4 squares, 17 animals, 13 pictures (inc. car, train, plane, rocket, boat), 12 other shapes (inc. cross, yin and yang, heart)).
