READ description to see if this is suitable for your students; ideally suited to high ability KS2, lower ability KS3, but that's for you to decide based on the content of the worksheet itself.<br />
This resource is a FULL lesson which introduces Mean Averages.<br />
The PowerPoint goes through what mean average is/how it's calculated. It then has two examples that can be done with your class (teacher led) - all answers are on the PowerPoint too.<br />
After each of the teacher led examples is one that students need to try themselves (these are labelled 'try it' on the PowerPoint). These are at the top of the worksheet. Students could try these, with help if needed - this could even be done is pairs.<br />
Finally, there's an independent task that has ten examples for students to calculate. These include numbers in the thousands, so differentiation by task is possible. Some answers include decimals.<br />
An answer sheet is provided for the teacher too.<br />
The lesson is reviewed by students feeding back at the bottom of their handout.<br />
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

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.
