An Autograph Activity to demonstrate why the angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees. The interesting thing about this activity is that it has no numbers! So really it is a demonstration that the angles in a triangle when put together form a straight line.
This activity was inspired by the awesome Oliver Byrne's 'The Elements of Euclid'. Mathematics is not just about numbers, using colours in this example hopefully demonstrates that.
Eleven slides allow right-angled trigonometry (sine, cosine and tangent) to be presented step by step. I have found this very useful as a step-by-step presentation and as a printed (two to a sheet of A4) record of the methods, which students can glue in their books.
I made this resource because I haven't got Numicon software installed on the computer I use in the classroom. It is a simple SMART page with the 10 numicon shapes presented in their correct colours. Each is set to 'infinite clone' so you can just drag a copy into the white space.
The tiles have now been flipped so they are orientated just like numicon tiles when arranged in the standard number line format. Just undo the infinite cloner to flip them back!
There are three levels of differentiation (L3, L4 and L5) and the questions are targeted at children using and applying knowledge of division in context. Most of these are one-step problems, however some require two or more calculations to reach the answer.

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! :-)
