Mental/Speed Arithmetic Worksheets

Mental/Speed Arithmetic Worksheets

I created these randomly generating speed/mental maths worksheets in Excel for my students to practise their skills in: All values are 0-12 times table values. Hit F9 (Windows) or Fn F9 (Mac) to randomly generate a new sheet. Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Mixed 1-Step Algebra Each worksheet generates correct solutions to match. Each worksheet is separated into: Beginner Intermediate Advanced Personally, I print off and laminate a randomly generated class set and see how many students can do in the first 5 minutes of the lesson to warm up. I keep records of their best and challenge them to beat their personal bests.

Where was the free kick taken from? - Photos, football and algebraic fractions

Where was the free kick taken from? - Photos, football and algebraic fractions

Inspired by a Numberphile video where they use still images to calculate the position of a footballer taking a free kick (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffvojZONF_A) Resource is aimed at GCSE groups (higher) and will need at least an hour. Students are given four photographs and instructions that allow them to calculate where each player was standing when they took the free kick by measuring distances on the photographs and computing cross-ratios. They then have to solve a simple algebraic fraction equation to work out the unknown distance. Included: presentation to help explain the tasks, worksheet with photographs and an additional sheet that scaffolds the process if needed, set of exemplar answers. Students can draw any straight line they like from the ball to the goal so they will have different distances in their cross ratio but should end up with the same final answers. Potentially leads to discussion opportunities about how the cross-ratio changes with the players position and even an introduction to limits as you consider what happens if the player is very close to or very far away from the penalty area. *Presentation edited to include extension tasks incorporating using trig to find the kick angle and problem solving to work out the location of a different player and flight path of a pass followed by a shot **Answers updated to include challenge 1 and 2

End of Term Games

End of Term Games

This activities are aimed at key stage 3 students but could be used as revision for students who are revising for their GCSE examination. Each round consists of four questions. Print the slides 8 to 13 on A4 paper and place one printed slide per table. Students are put into pairs (either by choice or teacher selection) and are given a copy of slide 14 and a few sheets of pieces of A4 paper. The pairs are designated a starting table and the timer (slide 2) is started. The students are then given 5 minutes to answer the four questions on that table. Once the five minutes is up the students move clockwise to the next table and start the next set of four questions and the timer of slide 3 is started. This continues until all students have completed the six tables worth of questions. The answering of the questions takes no more than 30 minutes. Students then remain at their final table, swap their answer sheet with the nearest table and the answers are produced. At this stage I go through the questions before revealing the answers. In this way the students have had a go at GCSE style foundation questions and have also seen a demonstration as to how they should have been answered. Finally, students add up their score and the highest score get a prize!

Linear Simultaneous Equations Word Problems (IGCSE/GCSE)

Linear Simultaneous Equations Word Problems (IGCSE/GCSE)

This presentation is a step-by-step guide that would help students with word problems on linear simultaneous equations.I have included five different types of word problems that GCSE/IGCSE students are likely to come across. By the end of this lesson students will be able to construct simultaneous equations by deriving information from the word problem. Students should be able to solve simultaneous equations using both the substitution and elimination methods prior to this lesson. The word problems used in this presentation are from the Extended Mathematics for Cambridge IGCSE book by David Rayner. Do drop a comment below to let me know what you think of this resource. Your ratings will also be highly valued.

Maths-Algebra-Code breaking - Team work- Activity- KS3 or KS4 - Changing the subject-Coefficients

A brilliant resource that incorporates: Algebra, rearranging equations, changing the subject in equations, applying algebra to a problem, team work. I made this resource and got offered a job when I did a job interview. They said it was the best planned and most engaging lesson they had ever seen. Keep it up your sleeve for an observation from your Head of Department or even better OFSTED. Mission cards should be printed backed and laminated and the resource can be re-used over and over. The task involves simple algebra, changing the subject, positive and negative numbers.

Vary and Twist : Two Step Equations

Vary and Twist : Two Step Equations

Trying to use variation theory My thinking A question to start Reversing the terms. Does balancing still work? A subtraction. How does this effect our balance. Does reversing the terms still lead us to the same answer Increasing the constant by one. What happens? Also: a decimal answer. We can have a negative answer Divide x, instead of multiplying it. Increasing co-efficient of x by one. What happens to our answer? Doubling co-efficient of x. Not sure about these last two. I think they may be a step back from question 7. This is the problem with presenting these in a linear format. These questions are variations on question 1, not question 7. I might experiment with some kind of spider diagram. Doubling the divisor from 7. Again, maybe the linear way these are written is a bit rubbish. Don’t know how I like the order of these questions, but there’s lots to think about and something to tweak. I have found the transition to asking ‘why have they asked you that question? What are they trying to tell you?’ has been difficult for some students, but I think it’s worth devoting time to it. If students are inspecting questions for things like this, maybe they’re more likely to read the question thoroughly and pick out it’s mathematics. Big hope, I know.

Solving Equations Continuum

Solving Equations Continuum

So the idea behind this activity is that there’s very little difference between each different worksheet but a large difference between polar opposites. Pupils answer the first 5 questions. If they get them all correct first time they move up a step, otherwise they answer the rest of the questions on that level. The levels are: Red - Solving one-step using balances and bar models Orange - Solving one-step represented algebraically (positive and negative integers) Yellow - Solving one-step represented algebraically including fractions, decimals and worded questions Green - Solving two-step using balances and bar models with a few represented algebraically Blue - Solving two-step represented algebraically (positive and negative integers) Purple - Solving two-step represented algebraically including fractions and decimals White - Solving two-step worded questions
