## Missing Multipliers - NRICH activity

This is a lesson plan and set of resources built around the 'Missing Multipliers' interactive problem from the Nrich Website. It was made for a bottom set year 8 who are struggling with basic mental calculations and also finding and discussing strategies for solving problems. Differentiated task sheets are included as well as starter activities etc. The pupils were given individual laptops, but worked in pairs to discuss and generate ideas.

#### Super Hero Top-Trumps - Scatter graphs lesson

lttmaths.com Top Trump cards depicting superheroes - their statistics correlate (e.g: height / weight or fame / salary etc.) and can be used to plot scatter graphs. I have used these by giving each pupil a hero card, then done a human scatter graph. They then created their own hero card (making sure their statistics fit the correlations shown on the graph sheets).
They could also be used for calculating averages, sampling techniques..... and playing top trumps!
N.B - original spreadsheet from another TES user.
