## Simpsons Coordinates

- 4.331 reviews

Here are a couple of pictures of the Simpsons which students can recreate to practise plotting coordinates in all four quadrants or just the positive quadrant. Lisa requires the use of all four quadrants whilst Bart only requires positive. There are the grids included and also an extra sheet to get students to draw their own axis and find out what the pictures are.

Very good resource for practice with plotting coordinates but there are a couple of errors with Lisa's beads and the last column for her eyelashes seems unnecessary.

These are the instructions for constructing 11 characters from The Simpsons using co-ordinates.
I originally created them in about 1998 and these are scans of the original documents as the word processor I originally typed them up on is long gone, as are the original files. Anyway, the odd one or two of these seem to be turning up all over the place, so here are all the ones that have survived. I hope you enjoy using them :-)

#### Your Passport to...

I made these little passports for year 11s who are revising/working towards their GCSE exam. You can print them on card and reduce them so each face of the passport is A6 in size. Each student has their own and then they have to collect 'stamps' (I do actually use a stamp) as they bring evidence that they have 'visited' somewhere/proved they can do something on the passport. You could offer a prize to the first person to complete their passport.

#### Best Buy Food Shop

This activity is based around food shopping. Students are given a selection of products which could be distributed on entrance to the classroom. They can then use the unitary method to cancel a ratio down to use to compare the different products.
Students are then required to purchase items on the shopping list for the best value and fill in the receipt to show what they have bought. You could build on the products as the shopping list allows for 'an extra treat'.

#### BIDMAS Entrance Cards

Give these cards to students as they enter a room. Label the tables with the large number pages. Students need to work out their card in order to decide where to sit. Once seated, students can then work on finding other ways of making their number. There's something quite nice about the fact the same number can be made in lots of different ways. This is quite a nice way of showing progress in a lesson, if say, students can't work out where to sit at the beginning of the lesson, but, by the end (having explored order of operations) can work it out.

#### Coordinate Battleships Game (Differentiated)

A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
<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 />
<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.

#### Cash for questions revision activity

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.
