Area & Circumference of Circles Solve & Draw Activity

Area & Circumference of Circles Solve & Draw Activity

Solve and Draw no-prep printables for are an easy, no-prep way to make math practice more engaging. This resource may be used as a fun quiz or review, for center or station activities, for fast finishers, as homework, or as a sub day activity. How Solve & Draw Activities WorkStudents solve the area and circumference problems and add to the drawing based on their answers. Two versions of each page (excluding the challenge page) are included. One has answers with pi, the other has answers that require calculating with pi (use 3.14 for pi). The drawings and prompts are identical – to tell the difference you will need to look at the answer choices or at the top left circle of the border. Level 1 pages have a black circle in the top left of the border.An optional challenge page is included that can be copied on the back of the worksheet or given to fast finishers– this gives students an extension opportunity by asking them to create a new problem using a circle with new dimensions. They get to create their own drawing prompts and can then add those to their drawings. You may also have them share these challenge problems with the rest of class, which provides additional practice for everyone.

Mathematics sticker templates for varying abilities and years within KS3 and KS4

Mathematics sticker templates for varying abilities and years within KS3 and KS4

I made these resources in order to mark books more efficiently. I find that a good proportion of time marking can be spent searching for where the student has written their 'target', whereas with using these sticker templates for questions, students' work becomes easier to mark and is more exciting for the students to access. If you do not have access to 2x7 sticker template, these can purchased from a site such as this http://www.aalabels.com/a4-sheets/rectangle/t25?gclid=Cj0KEQjww7zHBRCToPSj_c_WjZIBEiQAj8il5EFCUGo0E45IiK7G9fkAnHYY8-cT7QlqjJ9PlPADVGAaAvc28P8HAQ Most of the target sheets have an option of two potential targets. This can be used for differentiation in two ways. Firstly students could choose, based on their perceived ability, on what target they think their level is suited at currently. Alternatively, as a teacher you could stick the stickers in the book to differentiate different types of learners, or to ensure that people sitting directly next to each other do not have the same target (in the instance when targets are similiar level). I have put *, **, *** next to differing targets in which the greater number of stars the more difficult it is. A mix of topics have been provided in this resource, and may not be useful for the stated year group if your school syllabus is vastly different to the one in which I follow. Therefore, although each of the files have been carefully labelled to assist in suggestions for how these stickers be used, their usage is flexible.

2D Shape Properties, drawing and sorting. 2 presentations and 4 differentiated worksheets.

2D Shape Properties, drawing and sorting. 2 presentations and 4 differentiated worksheets.

I have combined material for 2 lessons on 2D shapes.The first presentation talks about and identifies properties of 2D shapes including: edges (curved or straight), corners, symmetry, right angles and the key points of quadrilateral shapes.With this lesson I have included 2 worksheets. One for lower ability (LA) and one for higher ability (HA). Both worksheets ask children to gather data on the properties of 2D shapes.The second powerpoint looks at sorting 2D shapes into venn diagrams as well as a brief introduction on how to draw 2D shapes. The worksheets included for this presentation are venn diagrams which need to be sorted. One for LA and one for HA.***I strongly advise teachers to have a practice run through both presentations for a more effective lesson.***
