Invetigating Number: Place Value. Familiar to anyone who did GCSE / O Level before 1990, the topic of changing base is an enjoyable diversion from the confines of the national curriculum! This powerpoint sets a problem about the number system used by an alien with 8 digits. Ideal as a starter to have on the board, I have used it as a starting point for a range of activities including converting base 10 to base 8, performing calculations in base 8 and simply open my pupils eyes to the wonder of maths!
Have also launched into lessons on Binary from this which comes back nicely into index law.
Below are word documents with the new Curriculum 2014 objectives for each year group in the primary phase. I thought of using them by RAG rating children's understanding of the objectives featured. Use each year group objective sheet to suit the individual needs of groups of children in your class.
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.
Attached is a document for use in children's books to set and assess objectives in Year 1 - old national curriculum levels are included for Year 1
Yr1 Commenced = 1c
Yr1 Developing = 1c+/1b
Yr 1 Secure = 1b+/1a
Objectives could be dated and highlighted as achieved
