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.

Striving to Improve in Maths: Angles, Shapes and Mensuration

Striving to Improve in Maths: Angles, Shapes and Mensuration

The Striving to Improve Series targets students who, for whatever reason, are struggling to keep up with their peers. The activities in the books are designed to prevent students from regressing any further at school. The tasks are based on a modified curriculum so that students can work at their own pace and without constant supervision from the teacher.This book, 'Angles, Shapes and Mensuration', is focused on Measurement and Geometry Strands for lower ability students and those who need further opportunity to consolidate these core areas in mathematics. Each section of the book provides students with the opportunity to consolidate written and mental methods of calculation, with an emphasis on process and understanding.The section entitled Angles enables students to review types of angles and naming angles. There is the opportunity to practise drawing angles and using angles within a context. Students then have the opportunity to investigate angles in a triangle and to also classify the different types of triangles. The section entitled Shapes And Mensuration familiarises students with units of length, mass and capacity and provides activities to consolidate unit conversions using mental strategies. The activities then move on to exploring perimeter and area of rectangles and triangles and allow for a thorough consolidation of these foundational concepts. Students then engage with simple volume and capacity ideas.These activities are a useful way to scaffold a new unit of Mathematics and will help build confidence for lower ability students to attempt more challenging problems at their year level. The activities are designed to guide student learning with minimal input from the teacher and there is a strong emphasis on process and understanding.The activities can be used for individual students needing further consolidation in a mainstream classroom or as instructional worksheets for a whole class of lower ability students. The activities are aimed at students working at approximate year levels of Year 4 through to Year 7 and are appropriate for students requiring extra support in Years 7, 8 and 9.This is a Photocopy Master ebook (52 pages) and activity pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom. Our ebooks are in pdf format.Edubooks is an imprint of Ready-Ed Publications.Editor: Mirella Trimboli

Problem Solving Task_The Bunny Problem_Area/Perimeter/Arrays

Problem Solving Task_The Bunny Problem_Area/Perimeter/Arrays

This file includes a problem solving task, slides that walk students through the problem solving process, as well as tips for teaching problem solving and possible questions for facilitating the task. It is provided as a pdf. as well as a ppt. This task focuses on area and perimeter as students try to maximize the area of a bunny pen for a predetermined perimeter. Students engage in true problem solving as they explore the possibilities for the bunny pen in this version of a classic mathematical task.This PowerPoint includes teacher facilitation questions, a guide to understanding the mathematics in the problem, a scaffolded approach to problem solving, and possible solutions. This is the method I use to help my students engage deeply in problem solving and stretch themselves beyond "number plugging" as many students do when they solve a "word problem". I have included a powerpoint version as well as a printable .pdf to fit the needs of your classroom.
