Differentiated negative number worksheets

A set of differentiated worksheets on negative numbers. I use the ESP to group students by ability in that topic for that lesson and give them the appropriately leveled resource. Ideas? Corrections? Criticisms? Maths Jokes? Please comment below.

Punctuation Worksheets

We initially designed these worksheets to be used in 20 minute tutor periods across the whole of KS3 as part of a Literacy drive. However, they could also be used as starters in skills-based lessons; maybe in the build-up to Functional Skills tests? We hope they're useful, either way! N.B. The &'worksheets&'; can be projected onto whiteboards: printing/photocopying not necessarily required.
