Delve into comprehensive sets of tried-and-tested maths resources by Tes Author Maths4Everyone

As myself and my Tes Maths panel members were busy assembling the brand new secondary maths collection, we stumbled upon an absolute goldmine of resources - those by Maths4Everyone. Quite simply, in nearly 10 years of being the Tes Maths Adviser, they are some of the best resources I have ever seen. I featured a few of these resources in last month’s student-led revision post, and the response on Twitter was incredible, with people wanting to find out more. So, make sure you are securely fastened into your seat, because this could well knock you over!

Resources for younger students

As a secondary school teacher, you may be questioning why I’ve highlighted these topic-specific compilations of Sats questions, complete with fully worked solutions. We’ve tried these out with our Year 7 and 8 students, in class or for homework, and they are going down a treat! Check out this wonderful selection of questions that really get students thinking.

 

KS2 Maths (Understanding Fractions)

These topic-focused SATs questions at the end of a unit will help to test and extend students’ understanding as well as helping them to prepare for SATs next year. These questions have fully-worked solutions which can be displayed on a whiteboard making feedback with students more efficient.
Click 👉 tes.com/…/KS2-Maths-Questions… for similar-style compilations on the other KS2 topics.<hr>This particular compilation is from the FRACTIONS, DECIMALS AND PERCENTAGE strand and contains questions which require students to shade a given fraction of a shape or identify how much of a shape has been shaded.<hr>I have designed this compilation to be printed as an A4 or A5 booklet which is in the style of the actual SATs papers and is convenient for use in class or as homework. It can even be given to individual students if a parent is asking for ‘some more work’!

KEY POINTS:

  • I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful.
  • I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented.
  • Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined).
  • I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃

Treasure hunts and loop cards

We all know the benefits of getting students moving around the classroom as they hunt for their next card, and many of us will have used a set of loop cards with students clutching on to theirs waiting for their turn to come, but how often do you use these as individual activities? As the questions can be easily shrunk down in size to reduce the damage of the photocopying bill, it’s worth making the most out of these cards.

 

Using a Calculator: Part 1 (Treasure Hunt)

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.

Linear Equations (Treasure Hunt)

This activity gives students practice at solving linear equations, with and without brackets. All answers are positive, but not all are whole numbers.

I have used colours to indicate the approximate level of the questions:
KS2 – red and orange
KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green
GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple

Angles in Quadrilaterals (Loop Cards)

These reusable cards are excellent for one-to-one tutorials and interventions. They are also great when working with small groups or as a starter/plenary for a whole class. For Loop Cards on more than 50 other topics click 👉 www.tes.com/../more....

This particular set of cards allows students to practise working out unknown angles in quadrilaterals. They will need to use quadrilateral angle facts such as ‘opposite angles in a parallelogram are equal’, as well as the sum of angles on a striaght line and around a point.
Note that the questions have been carefully selected so that they provide good coverage of this topic and so that the opportunities for students to guess answers are minimised.

Colour coding:
All my loop cards are colour-coded to indicate the approximate level of the questions:
KS2 – red and orange
KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green
GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple

Further information:
In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order 😃

My favourite use of loop cards is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins). More instructions are included in the download.

Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.

Gradient and Intercept of a Straight Line (Loop Cards)

These reusable cards are excellent for one-to-one tutorials and interventions. They are also great when working with small groups or as a starter/plenary for a whole class. For Loop Cards on more than 50 other topics click 👉 www.tes.com/../more....

This particular set of cards allows students to practise rearranging equations that represent straight lines into the form ‘y=mx+c’ so that the gradient and the intercept can be determined.
Note that the questions have been carefully selected so that they provide good coverage of this topic and so that the opportunities for students to guess answers are minimised.

Worksheets

I have two key criteria when looking for a worksheet on Tes: a wide range of questions presented in a logical order and that the answers are provided. For pretty much every topic you could imagine, the choice of questions is phenomenal and each one comes complete with fully worked solutions. These are ideal for homework, assessments or independent revision.

 

Listing Outcomes (Worksheets with Solutions)

Three worksheets with a very thorough consideration of the outcomes that occur in typical questions on this topic. These sheets have been really helpful for my students of all abilities, to get to grips with considering the possible outcomes of events and writing them down in a systematic way.

I have worksheets on more than 50 other topics – click here 👉 https://tes.com/.../worksheets… to see them.

Improper Fractions (with Answers)

Use in class or for homework, these two worksheets are very useful for giving students practice at converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers (and vice-versa).
--
Designed for upper primary or early secondary school students, the sheets are also excellent for one-to-one tuition and interventions.
(Answers) are included.

GCSE Revision (Triple Brackets)

Ideal for GCSE revision, this worksheet contains exam-type questions which require the Expansion of Triple Brackets. The questions gradually increase in difficulty, with some challenging problems at the end.

These review sheets are great to use in class or as a homework. They are also excellent for one-to-one tuition and for interventions.

For similar-style revision sheets on other topics, click 👉 tes.com/../more...

Included is a NEW STYLE of PowerPoint, which allows individual questions to be selected for enlarged display onto a screen. The answer can then be worked out ‘live’ by the teacher (or student) or a single click will reveal my solution. This not only helps in class, but it is also very useful for a student who is revising at home 😀.
