KS3 Circles-Rescue the princess-adventure game

KS3 Circles-Rescue the princess-adventure game

Adventure game in which students answer KS3 circle questions in order to rescue a princess. Teacher notes and answers are provided. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: parts of a circle, circumference, area, reverse questions: given circumference, find diameter and radius; given area, find radius and diameter. Go to my profile page to see the GCSE version including arc length and sector area and check out my other games.

Geometry group presentation

Geometry group presentation

This activity is helpful when you are teaching perimeter and area of triangles, trapeziums and parallelograms. Each group prepares a poster on the rules of their shape and then presents it to the class. This took most of the lesson and they all knew the rules by the end of the lesson.

Resources: 34 Maths lessons differentiated four ways each for Years 5 - 6!

PLEASE READ:Differentiation - we all know it's important, but it takes so much time! Wouldn't it be brilliant if someone had differentiated a full term of Maths lessons by their learning intentions/objectives and told you where to find the resources? I thought so. This Excel sheet contains 34 lessons on the subjects listed below, differentiated into 4 ability groups per lesson. That's 136 tasks already organised into ability groups to save you time!Number and place value - 6 lessonsMultiplication and division - 11 lessonsAddition and subtraction - 5 lessonsFractions, decimals and percentages - 8 lessonsArea and perimeter - 4 lessonsNow, however much I would like to, I am not allowed to publish all of my worksheets on here as they have been made using textbooks - I would get in a great deal of trouble if I did! Instead, I have left directions to find every piece of work by the book title, page number and question numbers. All you have to do is find and photocopy the correct page!The only books you'll need are:Target Your Maths 4, 5 and 6 by Stephen PearceAbacus 'Shape, data and measure'Abacus 4

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.

Forming and Solving Equations from Shapes and Angle Problems RELAY

Forming and Solving Equations from Shapes and Angle Problems RELAY

An activity aimed at foundation GCSE students or higher level KS3 students.Can be organised as an activity in many ways but designed to be run as a 'relay' activity where students may work collaboratively or in competition with each other.There are two sets of questions, an easier A set and a harder B set. Each set is 6 questions. Solutions are awarded marks based on difficulty and so can be used as a relay competition where groups are challenged to score the most points in a given time.Questions are on invividual A4 sheets and can be printed and combined to suit the user.

Math Problem Solving Strategies - Mixed Strategies

Math Problem Solving Strategies - Mixed Strategies

Two statements that can be found in almost any math curriculum are:Students learn best if they are actively involved in their learning. Students should be able to apply various strategies to solve problems.This Mixed Problems unit gives students opportunities to solve problems using different strategies.The unit begins with a worked example, showing different strategies for solving the same problem.Each of the 30 colorful, interesting problems comes with a reminder of the 8 strategies covered in Math Problem Solving Strategies Units 1 through 8. All problems come with on screen hints, and solutions using alternative strategies.This unit can be used on its own or after students have completed some, or all of the units covering the 8 problem solving strategies.

Perimeter - Thoughts and crosses (differentiated worksheet)

Resource;Perimeter of shape- Thoughts and Crosses. Could also be treated as perimeter– differentiated worksheet. Contains; 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 to save on cost. PDF version can be used to present on whiteboard. 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. File Type;PDFIdea 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. Allows pupils to move from finding the perimeter of basic shapes to compound shapes and then linking it to algebra to really push those pupils who have grasped the task. Year 11 pupils are using this to revise all of perimeter(basic shapes, compound shapes, worded problems and a link to algebra) and it is getting them to think of perimeter in many different situations. Check the preview!If you do purchase my resource, please do rate and review my resources. I really appreciate reviews and feedback, I aim to develop constantly and love to ensure my resources are up to date and differentiated to all ability levels but please do try to be constructive! @ onitmaths@gmail.comTerms of use; Please use only by the customer buying the resource.
