Symmetry - Differentiated Patterns

Symmetry - Differentiated Patterns

I used these worksheets in Year 4 and the children moved through them at their own pace during the lesson starting with the first sheet. The third activity is quite difficult (two examples in the picture) so even the most able might need to start with the second sheet first. The last sheet is just blank for the children to fill in for each other in pairs if they've blasted through the other three!

SIMILAR SHAPES : Length, Area, Volume Ratios

SIMILAR SHAPES : Length, Area, Volume Ratios

These 5 worksheets help to explain the effects of enlargement on the area and volume of a shape by looking at the length, area and volume ratios. This is an important topic that is often found difficult by many students.There are three basic worksheets introducing the idea then two pages of harder word problems for extension work. The first worksheet lets students calculate the surface area and volume of simple 1cm and 2cm cubes so they can create the ratios themselves and see how the area and volume ratios derive from the length ratio. Sheets 2 and 3 require students to use the relationships between the ratios to calculate missing areas and volumes.The two word problem sheets are similar to GCSE 9-1 exam questions.For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop

Geometry: Area 5 - Area of a Trapezoids (US version) + lots of  resources

Geometry: Area 5 - Area of a Trapezoids (US version) + lots of resources

This is the fifth in a 7 lesson series on learning different area rules (extension being circles - teach as a separate series). Comes with additional resources !!Lesson 1 - Perimeter of ShapesLesson 2 - Area of RectanglesLesson 3 - Area of TrianglesLesson 4 - Area of QuadrilateralsLesson 5 - Area of TrapezoidsLesson 6 - Compound AreaLesson 7 - Scale Drawing (functional lesson)I have found over the years, that teaching these lessons over more lessons than less pays dividends!! That it is often a subject skirted over quickly and has to be re taught year on year. It is often a subject that even at later grades that pupils struggle over. To address this each of the lessons is very thorough on the different rules, with activities, hand made worksheets that are differentiated with trickier examples with answers, exam questions, problem solving starters and plenaries. I have spent a long time over the years developing lessons to help pupils progress in this area.You can buy this as a BUNDLE at a reduced price!!NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Geometry and Measures Crosswords and Word Searches

Geometric Drawing and Invariance Vocabulary Wordsearch and Crossword.

Geometric Drawing and Invariance Vocabulary Wordsearch and Crossword.

This is a crossword and word search with further shape and measure vocabulary (covering drawing, constructions, symmetry and translations). It is aimed at higher tier students and would be useful as - revision- lesson starter - settling activity- cover work- end of term activity- extension task- literacy support for EAL or SEND students- literacy across the curriculum- assessment for learning or afl taskContains printable pdf and answers for the crossword and wordsearch. For differentiation I have included a wordsearch and a crossword using similar vocabulary. The wordsearch is easier.The learning objective is to introduce or revise shape and measure vocabulary in a fun and relaxing way.This activity could be used at the start of a topic to introduce key vocabulary by having students fill out as much as they can independently and then check their answers and fill in the gaps using the answer sheet provided. Once students have all the answers they can save the crossword to refer to during the course as a useful list of vocab and definitions. This would help students with dyslexia to spell the vocab correctly and would enable all students with high language needs to refer back to the definitions as required to allow them to access later lessons. After filling in the crossword students could be asked to annotate the crossword with examples or mnemonics for the vocab to aid understanding and recall.This activity could also be used for revision where students might complete several crosswords in a lesson or for homework. They would work at their own pace to identify areas where they need focus their revision.This activity is for teachers, tutors, special needs teachers, teaching assistants, after school club organizers and parents or students looking for revision activities.

Geometry: Circles 5 - Compound Area involving Circles (circular compounds) + worksheet

This is the last lesson of my series on circles and looks at compound shapes and exam style questions involving problems with circles and area. I love this type of lesson, where no two question are the same. It comes with an excellent worksheet included as well as the usual excellent teaching slide, starter, key words, plenary, learning objectives etc... Perfect for GCSE and IGCSE in particular. I have put this lesson as a part of a 5 lesson bundle on circles. I also offer a separate bundle on circle theorems and area of other shapes. 1. Circles 1 - Properties of Circles, what is pi2. Circles 2 - Circumference and area of circles3. Circles 3 - arcs and sectors4. Circles 4 - segments5.
