Introduction to drawing piecharts - also suitable for weaker key stage 4 students. Left the table at the end blank so can be filled in by class - may need to fiddle the total according to ability of class.
This is a very smart presentation on how to draw a pie chart, the focus is on teaching for understanding and getting the students to really understand the process. The lesson involves a lot of questionning which is nice. Depending on the ability of the group another worked example may have been helpful but this can always be added in. The powerpoint finishes with a few examples but there are no solutions on the powerpoint so these would need to be added in or completed on the whiteboard. Thank you for sharing.
I used this for an observed lesson and I received good feedback - the children enjoyed it too! I can't take all the credit for the resources as the PPTs aren&'t mine but I found them incredibly useful! Thought I could post the whole lesson together with resources and someone might find it useful :-)
Complete lesson with 1 hour PowerPoint and additional worksheets (as well as other complete package lessons from this unit) are also available at my shop. All follow consistent format and style, differentiated to at least 3 levels and designed to meet Ofsted ‘Good’ or above.
Needed something like this for my for mixed ability group (yr 7) - enable them to grasp the concept of balancing when solving equations. Have also included the flow diagram method. Hope you find this useful.
A carousel activity with answers and hints. Tasks are placed around the room - students are given about 7 minutes per table, moving to the next task after they have checked their answers. Some questions have hints to help students to solve the question before moving onto the answer. Topics covered: multiplicative reasoning, index laws, standard form, algebraic proof, averages and frequency polygon from continuous data, nth term, surd problems. All the problems are supposed to be non calc. I printed one copy of each task for each student.<br />
The second carousel tasks include both calc and non calc (specified). The second carousel contains: factorising, direct proportion (simple), solving equations, percentages using the multiplier method, reverse percentages, percentage change, using formulae.
A lesson that allows students to discover the theorems for themselves. The presentation includes two circles for each theorem for students to measure angles and deduce the theorems. The lesson begins with the students attempting to work out the unknown angles on the worksheet. After each discovery, students then return to the worksheet and calculate the unknown angle with their new knowledge, therefore showing progress all the way through the lesson. Hints are also given on the ppt. Students are then given the theorems sheet to complete the sentence with their own words, further demonstrating their learning. They can then be shown the next slide and add to their own descriptions. Questions included for homework for the first three theorems only. Used this lesson for a year 9 class who really enjoyed the lesson. Print off the slides with circles 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b, 3a and 3b for students.
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
RECOMMENDED by the TES panel. Adventure game in which students answer averages questions in order to progress through a haunted house. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 8 questions on mean, median, mode, mean and median from ungrouped and grouped frequency tables. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
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.
