Cash for questions revision activity

There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.

Teacher Excel Markbook

Teacher Excel Markbook

This excel spreadsheet can be used to record student's grades. Using a 1-10 system you can record their marks and it will automatically average the grade. If you enter J, K or L in capitals (which is converted into a smiley face) in the effort column it will also average their effort grade. This provides formative feedback and allows progress to be monitored. This is a concept and could easily be adapted for specific use, i.e. Assessment without levels, BTEC etc.

Space Mission: Find us a New Earth!

Space Mission: Find us a New Earth!

The year is 2086, and the students are needed for a special mission!This space mission has been designed to provide students with a fun and interesting group challenge, whilst also building key skills in critical thinking and collaboration, and essential knowledge for Science, English, and Mathematics. Students are placed in a scenario in which Earth is no longer habitable, and humans must seek to move to another planet in the Universe. Compiled for them is information on each of the potentially most habitable planets that are known to man (these are the real planets that have been confirmed by NASA and other agencies as having the most potential for life). In reading the key information, students will be drawing upon their knowledge of Science terminology, and will need to make some Maths calculations to work out implications of living on different planets. What will become clear fairly quickly is that none of the potential planets are perfect, and they must use reasoned judgements to determine which of them have cons that could perhaps be overcome. They then present their ideas, using clear and articulate speaking and listening skills, and write up their report, using appropriate written communication (a scaffold is provided to frame this).Everything is provided for you to download, print, and teach:- A comprehensive, whole-activity PowerPoint that guides the students through the mission;- Detailed and colourful information sheets on each of the contender planets for being the next Earth (these include links to amazing websites that can provide the children with more information);- A 'Pros and Cons' scaffold, to help students record their findings;- An information sheet on the 'habitable zone' around stars;- A scaffold for writing up findings;- Sorting cards for help with determining the key features of habitable planets;- Full teacher guidance.Considering the time and effort that it took to create these resources, I think that they offer exceptional value. Whenever I have used this activity before, it has taken at least 2-3 lessons, including the introduction, starter challenge, main mission, presentations, and write-up. I originally have used this with mid-ability Year 6,7, and 8 groups, but colleagues have easily adapted it for students across key stages 2-4.All images have been cited at the end of the PowerPoint presentation and are licensed for commercial use.

CHANCE AND PROBABILITY: NO PREP PRINT-N-GO SHEETS

CHANCE AND PROBABILITY: NO PREP PRINT-N-GO SHEETS

Use this comprehensive pack of differentiated Print-n-Go Sheets to teach and reinforce conceptual knowledge of Chance and Probability. The hands-on interactive activities will also facilitate practical application and enable students to work with the concrete in order to understand the abstract. Moreover the activities are sure to make the teaching of Theoretical and Experimental probability not just easy but pure fun! ITEMS INCLUDED Cover pages for each section, if compiling sheets into a booklet. 1. The Probability Scale; Words Describing Chance: ♦ Definitions and given scenarios♦ Chance and Data (language of chance); class survey: favourite food; favourite sport2. Theoretical Probability: Manipulatives, spinner numbers, spinner names, spinner colours, marbles, dice numbers, playing cards3.Theoretical Probability: possible outcomes using Tree Diagrams and Grids ♦ two coins ♦ a coin and a dice ♦ a dice and a spinner 4. Theoretical and Experimental Probability: ♦ Rolling a six-sided dice a given number of times.♦ Tossing two coins a given number of times.♦ Spinning a spinner a given number of times.♦ Picking an M&M colour a given number of times.5. Experimental Probability: ♦ Dice roll to find the number of trials and relative frequency of the numbers rolled.♦ Group experiment to toss a coin a given number of times and record the total heads, total tails, total outcomes, and relative frequencies of heads and tails (fractions and decimals) for each group. This is to prove the law of large numbers that indicate that as the number of trials increase, the relative frequencies tend to get closer to the expected value (0.5) of tossing a coin.6. Word Problems for both theoretical and experimental probability outcomes: This section features ‘Work with Teacher’ and ‘Student Practice’ pages. The ‘Work with Teacher’ page will enable you to demonstrate the solution for each problem. I work on the PDF version of the file on the I-pad. This is projected on the interactive whiteboard (via a VGA cable) as I show annotations and working out of the problems. The ‘Student Practice’ pages will enable your students to practise the problem-solving strategies modelled by you in the ‘Work with Teacher’ pages. Problems are the same format with only a change in the numbers. Nature of Problems: ♦ Picking a favourable outcome from given possible outcomes.♦ Problems pertaining to coin tosses and dice rolls♦ Real-life problem: left-handed, right-handed people ♦ Problems involving possible combinations shown via a tree diagram ♦ Problems with Spinner spins→ Also included 18 colourful and meaningful vocabulary cards.

Union and Intersection of Sets

Union and Intersection of Sets

Students learn how to calculate the union and intersection of sets using Venn diagrams. As learning progresses students are challenged to use the union and intersection to calculate a probability.At the start of the lesson recaps both collecting like terms and using Venn diagrams to calculate a probability. The plenary challenges students to apply set notation to three independent events within a Venn diagram.Differentiated Learning ObjectivesAll students should be able to identify a union and intersect using set notation.Most students should be able to calculate a probability from a Venn diagram using set notation.Some students should be able to use set notation with probability trees and Venn diagrams.Check out my blog at mr-mathematics.com for:* Fully planned and differentiated maths lessons for KS3 and GCSE grades 1 - 9.* Schemes of work based on pedagogy and teacher support.
