I remember using this nrich activity in 2012. Thank you so much for creating the clue cards. I am going to have to remember to use this is the summer when the Olympics comes around again. Will be great to see if my students have remembered anything that I am teaching them this term!
This is a lesson plan and set of resources built around the 'Missing Multipliers' interactive problem from the Nrich Website. Differentiated task sheets are included as well as starter activities etc. The students were given individual laptops. Aligned with Common Core State Standards: 3.OA.1 Operations and Algebraic Thinking.
This is a set of cards with 12 different measuring problems linked to the Olympic Games. When I do this with my class, they will work in teams, move around the classroom to find and solve the problems, recording answers on the record sheet. We will then mark them together and award points for correct answers. Depending upon the success of the children I might decide to announce thresholds in the marks for gold, silver and bronze! \n\nPS I've used Microsoft clipart and no Olympic images for copyright reasons when uploading to TES.
Converting between cm and mm (WORD PROBLEMS) in the context of a Spider Olympics (Long Jump). There is a presentation with a short story and then some word problems to do together. Also, I have uploaded a sheet of differentiated word problems that I cut out and allow children to collect and tackle. The easiest problems are in the left hand column, the most difficult are on the right. Best for Y4 or 5, but could still be done at Y3 or even with struggling Y6s.
Finding the nth term suitable for low ability KS3/4. Resources include a PowerPoint lesson, blank grids to support less able students, bronze worksheet (ascending sequences), silver worksheet (descending sequences) and answers! Went down well as an observed lesson - let me know what you think!
There are about 17 (practical and fun) lesson activities, tasks or worksheets to cover the following 2014 objectives: <br />
Recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn.<br />
Identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle. <br />
This is one of the children's favourite activities to help understand angles. Ideas for children of all abilities to have fun learning about angles.<br />
Thank you for downloading. Please look for the large files (Flip -chart and PDF) which contain all the resources without the Paws & Clause watermark. <br />

A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
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.<br />
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.<br />
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! :-)
