Investigative Addition and Subtraction Mercedes Challenge.

Investigative Addition and Subtraction Mercedes Challenge.

Differentiated three ways. The children are given a brochure for Mercedes with differentiated products (e.g. leather seats, sat-nav etc.) and how much each item costs. Children must use their budget to customise their car with the things they would like. The aim is to get as close to their budget as possible, without going over it. Great activity to engage children, can be done in pairs or individually. Prices can be easily adapted and other items added or removed to further differentiate as needed. Makes a fantastic lesson and has been used with Ofsted/observations to great results!

Upper KS2 Maths Challenge - Money and Percentages

Can your students calculate their potential earnings after deducting tax, NHS and pension contributions? I did this lesson with a gifted and talented Maths group and they were amazed to see how much money they had left after deductions.

Using a Calculator: Part 1 (Loop Cards)

Using a Calculator: Part 1 (Loop Cards)

This download contains four sets of cards. Students choose a set and sort them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has a different sort order. Click --> https://tes.com/.../loop-cards for Loop Cards on other topics. --- The cards can either be used by individuals, pairs or small groups. My favourite use is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins!) Solutions and instructions are included. Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.

AVERAGES - Price of Football: Full results 2017

Some great, up-to-date, resources for teachers teaching #Maths or #Numeracy. The annual BBC Price of Football study is the biggest of its type in Europe, gathering season and match day ticket prices from clubs across 13 divisions in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as some of the biggest leagues on the continent. This year we have analysed over 2000 ticket prices in 10 categories: cheapest and most expensive match day ticket cheapest away ticket and most expensive away ticket cheapest season ticket and most expensive season ticket young adult season ticket and match day prices. The study also looks at how much clubs in the UK charge for pies, programmes, shirts and a cup of tea.

Real life maths involving money (differentiated).

Real life maths involving money (differentiated).

I have created a bank of 15 different items that can be purchased from different supermarkets. Underneath is a price which is differentiated three ways (red is lower ability, yellow is middle ability and green is higher ability). These can be easily edited to suit the needs of your children. They can be used for addition, subtraction, worded problems and open ended real world challenges.

Introduction to Budgeting / Saving - Fun at the Fair!

Introduction to Budgeting / Saving - Fun at the Fair!

This lesson was created as an introduction to budgeting / saving for a one-off KS2 lesson, but would also work as a KS3 lesson (depending on whether they have been introduced to budgeting / saving before) 1) Have each student fill out the "Things to do at the Fair!" tick sheet - ticking all the things they would like to do at the fair. 2) Give out the "How much will it Cost?" information sheet so that students are able to fill in the "How much will it Cost?" calculation sheet. At the end of this step, each student should have a total amount amount of money they would need in order to do everything they wanted to do at the Fair. 3) Print out (on card if possible) and cut out all the money scenario cards. Hand one to each student and have them calculate how they will pay for their day at the Fair. (Depending on the class, it may work best to have them do this in partners so they can discuss with each other) 4) As an extension, students could a) discuss with the class what they will do to budget / save for their day at the Fair; b) they could think other ways to earn / save money; c) they could modify their "Things to do at the Fair" tick sheet so that it is more affordable; d) they could calculate how much a day at the fair would cost for their whole family.
