Maths crossword: Word Multiplication

Maths crossword: Word Multiplication

Crosswords and maths very rarely go together however, this resource is perfect for mixing up maths lessons and also helps students with their literacy. It has always surprised me how poor some students are at spelling numbers! This resource includes a crossword with and without pictures along with the solution. All questions will challenge students knowledge of the 12 times tables. You may want to use this as a starter, plenary or even a timed task. Feel free to use with or without calculators also. Enjoy!

Number: Powers and Roots (+ matching activity)

Number: Powers and Roots (+ matching activity)

This is a whole lesson aimed at KS3 or even KS2 looking at powers and roots. This is often an area of confusion for pupils but it not often taught as a stand alone lesson. This is an excellent precursor to index rules which would naturally follow. 14 SLIDES and a matching activity. The lesson comes also with a starter looking at number properties, learning objectives, keywords, lots of superb teaching slides, with MWB activities, a tarsia activity with a solution and plenary. The activity also comes with a solution. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources! Also if you do purchase then please RATE and FEEDBACK on any comments good or bad, thank you.

4 operations weekly challenge (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) - All Abilities

4 operations weekly challenge (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) - All Abilities

All pupils from year 3 to year 6 benefit from regular practise in the 4 operations. I have created this system as a starter once a week (they are now down to 5 mins for 8 questions!) where the children self mark and correct. They are now very secure on their arithmetic! This system automatically generates a weekly challenge for any pupil of any ability, for the 4 operations in maths. The excel document and the word document together form a 'mail merge' that will produce a set of 8 problems (or however many you choose) for each child that are different each time. If you are familiar with the mail merge process, you should be able to set this up no problem, but please do get in touch if you have any issues. You can of course edit the 'weekly challenge' document to give only 4 problems, or 1, or even 16 (maximum is 24, 6 questions per operation). I've attached a picture of what it could look like in books. Instructions: Open the excel doc, paste in the names of your pupils in the tab marked: "Edit only this" Then, using the ‘operation ladders’ tab as guidance, decide which ‘rung’ each child needs to be on for each operation (again, putting the numbers of the rung in the ‘edit only this’ tab for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) You can also change the group names (see bottom of ‘operation ladders’ sheet) Weekly Challenge word doc: Every time you want to send out a new weekly challenge, open the excel doc, save it, close it (this will refresh and change the numbers so they are different from the last challenge) You may need to connect the word doc to the excel doc when you open the word doc, make sure they are saved in the same folder. Make sure you link to the worksheet called: Data - Select for merge You can add/ remove any of the subtitles/fields using the mailmerge function in the word doc. I'm happy for you to contact me if you have any issues or questions.

The Pedometer Project

The Pedometer Project

The Pedometer Project is a whole class project suitable for Primary 4 to Primary 7 classes (7 to 12 years old). It is recommended that a whole term is taken over this project in order to reinforce the skills learnt. This pack includes worksheets, teacher sheets and display sheets for the Pedometer Project and the additional, linked Energy and Activity lesson. The aim of the project is to teach numeracy skills whilst promoting physical activity. Through daily practise, pupils will practice numeracy skills including: Understanding four and five digit numbers Adding four and five digit numbers Rounding numbers up and down Understanding measurement and converting between meters and kilometres Adding data to tables and charts. Each day the children wear pedometers throughout the school day, and each day they complete a table to record how many steps they have taken. They then work through steps to calculate the distance they have travelled over the week. Each day, they move their marker along a wall chart to mark their distance travelled. The project is highly motivating for children as the context is real for them. They will want to be able to read the number of steps they have taken each day and to complete the table to move their figure along the chart. They will want to understand their progress and that of their peers. The element of competition with a race to see who can take the most steps in a week, is also highly motivating for pupils. The additional lesson, Energy and Activity, looks at the energy contained in different foods. Children use their pedometers to take the number of steps which would use the number of calories contained in each food. This leads to a discussion of when you might need a high or low energy snack. In addition to developing the childrens’ numeracy skills, the pedometer project encourages children to think about their physical activity levels and the ways in which they could boost their physical activity. Resources Included: Detailed notes for teachers for the Pedometer Project, with Scottish Curriculum For Excellence links. Detailed notes for teachers for the linked Energy and Activity lesson, with Scottish Curriculum For Excellence links. Two display sheets. Five teacher sheets. Five worksheets. Additional Resources Required: A class set of pedometers. A wall chart – instructions are provided for making this.
