Last Minute Maths Arithmetic Paper 2017 SATS Revision. Year 6 - KS2.

Last Minute Maths Arithmetic Paper 2017 SATS Revision. Year 6 - KS2.

A flip chart and SATS style question paper based on the arithmetic paper (paper 1) . Created by a year six teacher (89% maths at and above expected pass rate last year), maths coordinator and deputy head. Used on the afternoon before the 2016 maths SATS tests and updated in 2017. The flip chart allows the teacher to model the mathematics concept with a SATS style question and then gives the pupil the opportunity to use and apply what they have just seen. This is designed specifically for revision purposes as I have found my class sometimes fail to retain certain mathematical methods or struggle to use what they know to figure out what they don't. THIS IS AN ACTIVINSPIRE FLIP CHART

Number: Scientific Notation and our Universe (US Version)

Number: Scientific Notation and our Universe (US Version)

This is most definitely my favorite ever Math lesson to teach and this PPT has been constructed over the last 10 years of teaching this topic. It includes writing small number and big numbers into scientific notation and vice versa. It is 25 slides, which looks at our universe and atoms etc... to give math a real life context. It includes lots of examples, with very clear teaching. Useful starter, lots of questions with answers, which i normally run as a bit of a competition and plenary.It does NOT include adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing scientific notation, which comes in lesson number 2 !! You can buy both as a bundle to reduce costs.NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.
