Negative Numbers

Negative Numbers

FREE for new buyers – Enter code SEPTEMBER-SAVER at checkout. A range of activities to resource differentiated negative numbers lessons at Key Stage 2 (KS2) and some early KS3. Includes 3 fun Hidden Word / Spot the Mistake Puzzles (and solutions), a 30-card Loop Game / Dominoes Set and 16 Word Problems Cards (8 multi-step and 8 more simple). PUZZLES An engaging alternative to worksheets, these make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities. There’s one on increasing and decreasing temperature (Celsius), one for simple subtraction calculations with mostly negative number answers and a more challenging puzzle featuring addition and subtraction of negative and positive integers. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a maths-related word is revealed after completing calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a calculation and a letter. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors. Then they assemble letters from remaining boxes to reveal a maths word. There's a further challenge question / task at the bottom of the page linked to the word. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. LOOP CARDS / DOMINOES Fun group / whole class activity to consolidate adding and subtracting negative numbers, using a range of phrases ('reduce by', 'increase', 'difference between' etc). It forms a continuous loop so start anywhere. WORD PROBLEM CARDS 8 Multi-Step Word Problem Cards and 8 more simple. Solutions can be printed back to back with question side for student self-checking or can be printed and made into separate cards if required. Consolidates understanding of negative numbers in the contexts of temperature (degrees Celsius), money / bank accounts and points in a sporting league. Work well as early finisher challenges. Separate pounds and dollars versions included. My Hidden Word and Crossnumber Puzzle Packs have been especially popular.

Rounding

Rounding

FREE to new buyers: enter code SEPTEMBER-SAVER at checkout. 7 fun Hidden Word Rounding Puzzles for practising rounding to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, whole number, 1 decimal place, 2 decimal places and rounding to the nearest pound (dollar version also included). All solutions are provided. The main file contains puzzles 1-6 and their solutions: rounding 2-digit numbers to the nearest ten, 3-digit numbers to the nearest hundred, 4-digit numbers to the nearest thousand and various size decimal numbers to the nearest whole number, 1 decimal place and 2 decimal places. The money ones are separate (pounds and dollars versions in different files). An engaging alternative to worksheets, these make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities. They can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. These puzzles are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a maths-related word to be revealed after the rounding work. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a number to be rounded and a letter. Once pupils have rounded all the numbers, they cross out any boxes containing numbers that round to certain specified target numbers (whether it is to the nearest 10, 1 decimal place etc). Then they put together the letters from the remaining boxes to reveal a maths word. If the word is more simple, the letters are in random order for pupils to reassemble. If it is a trickier word (such as a famous mathematician), the letters are already placed in the correct order in the grid. There is a further challenge question / task at the bottom of the page linked to the hidden word, such as researching a mathematician on the computer or giving information about a particular kind of 2D shape. The range of puzzles in this resource is ideal for differentiation and / or to cater for a range of groups and classes across Key Stage 2 (KS2) and early KS3. Those you don't use this year will hopefully come in handy in future years. I hope this saves you time and that your pupils enjoy completing them. If you can spare a moment, I would be so grateful for a review. Many thanks.

Identifying coins coin rubbing activity sheet.

Identifying coins coin rubbing activity sheet.

I have used this many time in P1 (Reception) to get children to identify coins correctly. They place the coins under the sheet and use silver and bronze crayons to gently rub the design onto the sheet. They think this is magic and really enjoy the task. Works with plastic coins.

Maths 2 Chef  A reasoning and problem solving lesson for Year 5

Maths 2 Chef A reasoning and problem solving lesson for Year 5

I used this lesson for my successful Deputy Headship observation. It incorporates all the areas of the Maths curriculum, especially Reasoning and Problem Solving. All children were able to access it with the desserts being the simplest to calculate. Can be adapted. Feedback was outstanding as so much maths was involved in a fun innovative way. All parts of the lesson are my own including the title. Hope you enjoy it.
