This Halloween maths codebreaker fun activity is sure to give students lots of practice of their times tables.
Students need to answer the questions and find each corresponding letters in order to reveal a halloween joke. Great starter for lessons or to give to early finishers. Fun Halloween clip art pictures included.
WITH CORRECTIONS! The notorious terrorist ‘The Mathematician’ has left a clue to defusing the bomb he’s just planted. Answer the questions and cu the coloured wire in the correct order. This goes from purely Pythagoras, through Pythagoras and Trigonometry up to Trigonometry in non-right angled triangles.
This activity focuses on using the cursor button (on a Casio or similar) to navigate in and out of fractions and roots. Note that the use of brackets will be covered in Using a Calculator: Part 2. Click --> https://tes.com/.../Treasure Hunts for similar style Treasure Hunts on 40 other topics.
Note that unlike most Treasure Hunts, this one has the added feature that the answers give an encrypted clue. Deciphering this clue reveals where the treasure is hidden!
A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so.
These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large cards can be pinned around around the classroom and used for a whole class activity; the smaller (loop cards) can be used for group work or by individuals – they are particularly helpful for one-to-one tutorials and during interventions.
These puzzles are designed in the same way as a traditional crossword but using numbers instead of words. Each clue is a sum, and the result should be entered into the matching squares on the numbered grid. This file contains ten Cross Numbers puzzles together with a solution sheet. I have included two versions, one in PDF and the second an Excel file, whichever is your preference.
Ratio - Thoughts and Crosses.
Could also be treated as Ratio – differentiated worksheet covering different styles in which the question are asked in the new GCSE.
1. 16 questions on thoughts and crosses, moving from foundation level to exceeding.
2.Cross Curricular link encourages literacy with the pupils, pupils speaking to each other and explaining to how solve problems (this is a massive focus in our school).
3. 16 solutions provided.
4. Set of instructions to ensure the task runs smoothly.
5. Printable version – white version included in the middle of download to save on printing costs.
6. Please download file and ensure you don’t just drag and drop to google drive as this can cause issues with the viewing the file.
Printing Tip: This resource has been designed to display on board or print on A4. If you wish to print select ‘shrink’ or ‘print to fit page’ (or fit to page option on your print settings) in order for it to print correctly on A4.
Tip 2: You could laminate and reuse for other classes. This could be printed in colour and used over and over again. Saving you time and money on the printing costs.
Idea behind task;
To develop pupil’s mathematical discussions and thinking/reasoning skills. To encourage pupils to think about what they are writing down in the exam. By speaking to their partner it means their explanation and answers must make sense. Good practice for the exam to ensure they show full working out and to check their answer makes sense.

Several tasks all based on a WJEC GCSE question about forming and solving a quadratic equation for the area of two rectangles. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub.
The tasks vary in difficulty, and include forming expressions for various areas and perimeters, expressing proportional relationships, numerical and algebraic ratio tables and identifying reasonable assumptions. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class.
Thanks to JustMaths for the collection of exam questions by topic where I found the original question.
This set of 9 powerpoints have been designed to match the Edexcel Core Pure Mathematics Year 1/AS textbook (for Further Maths), and have largely been adapted from my previous A-level resources. Every chapter is covered, and within are explanations that could be used to teach lessons or be shared with students via a digital classroom. There are also some Autograph files included - the hyperlinks in the presentations should work if these are placed in the same folder as the powerpoints themselves!

Probability Activity for IGCSE Mathematics. This is a 3 column note activity. Ask students to work in small team and give each team a set of these cards.
Instruction for the activity: Inform your students to create three piles - one pile of always true, the other one as sometimes true and the third one as never true. You can also extend this activity by asking the students to give the reason for each card sort grouping. You can also differentiate by leaving some hard cards out for less able students, by adding harder cards to extend the more able students....
