Writing in Math--Geometry--Two Truths and a Lie

Writing in Math--Geometry--Two Truths and a Lie

A unique way to get students writing in math. This has 21 pages with 21 graphics related to triangle properties, area of polygons, and volume of rectangular prisms. Having students write in mathematics can be difficult. Get students up and moving around the room while they are engaged in writing in math with this activity. Students will write two truths and one lie (adapted from the get to know you game) about the graphics. Teacher Instructions included. There are two versions.In the first versions, each group of students will get a graphic or word problems and write two truths and one lie about it. Afterwards, students will get sticky notes to identify the lies on other groups papers. In a second version of this, the truths and the lies are already written and students need to identify which of the three statements is the lie. This can be used as a review at the end of the lesson. You could use all the pages at once or break it up by unit. There are potentially three days of activities here: triangle properties, area of polygons, and volume of rectangular prisms.

Geometry:  Real Life Graphs - Drawing and Interpreting rates of change (+ resources)

Geometry: Real Life Graphs - Drawing and Interpreting rates of change (+ resources)

This is an excellent look at different questions on rates of change and drawing real life graphs. This is one of the new "hot" topics for KS4 / GCSE as well as being appropriate for stronger groups at KS3.This Powerpoint gives lots of structure to the lesson, including an interesting starter, learning objectives, several matching exercises / MWB activities, a worksheet with answers and a challenging plenary.This lesson is a great accompaniment to my lesson on travel graphs and together helps pupils becoming much better at interpreting and drawing graphs. I have also uploaded a very large 4 lesson bundle of linear graphs, which might also be helpful to do at the same time.NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.
