Star Art – Templates – Set B

Star Art – Templates – Set B

Fun With Lines. Dotty templates to create 4 different stars. Simply draw straight lines connecting the dots on the templates and wonderful designs will appear … such fun! This is Set B. Included: ♦ 4 different star templates ♦ Example stars – black lines ♦ Example stars - coloured ♦ Easy-to-follow instructions (with images) The Process: ♦ Draw the lines. ♦ Add colour. ♦ Cut it out. ♦ Display. The Instructions: I have provided step-by-step instructions that show you how to complete the artwork. Each step is on one page with concise, kid-friendly instructions and an image. Print them out or display via a data projector – a great way for your students to self-check and manage their own learning. (Plus, it will save you from having to answer millions of “Is this right?” questions!) Great for a topic study on Space or for celebrations such as Matariki (Māori New Year). This is Set B. Set A is also available in my store. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Math Art – Parabolic Curves – Collaborative Project

Math Art – Parabolic Curves – Collaborative Project

A ‘Fun with a Ruler’ math/art project that involves drawing parabolic curves (curves that are made by drawing a series of straight lines). This project involves your students ruling straight lines between dots on a template. When they have finished drawing all the lines they can give their artwork some colour. Alternatively, your students could draw the design using different coloured pens. Each student completes a piece. Join the pieces together to make an eye-catching display (see image for example). Included: ♦ Student template (black or grey dots) ♦ Example ♦ Instructions ♦ Display suggestions ♦ Teacher notes Level of Difficulty: Your students need to be able to use a ruler to draw straight lines between 2 points (the curves are made with straight lines … it’s like magic!). The designs can look more complicated than they actually are. Concentration is required, but the actual process is not difficult. Instructions: Simple, clear, easy-to-follow instructions are provided. One instruction per page (image and a sentence). Display the instructions via a data projector if you have access to one. Otherwise print and enlarge them and/or demonstrate on an enlarged template. Equipment: You need a ruler and a pen (black works best). Something to colour with (eg coloured pencils, watercolours, felt tip markers, chalk pastels, dye, etc) Size: Each piece is approximately 18cm x 18cm. Designed on A4 size paper.

Math Art – Rotational Symmetry – Mandala Patterns

Math Art – Rotational Symmetry – Mandala Patterns

A fun activity for your students when studying geometry or cultural celebrations such as Diwali (The Festival of Lights). Students use the grid lines and lines of symmetry to help them draw the pattern in the other sections of the circle. The lines are light grey and they will become less visible after colouring. Included: ♦ 3 different patterns ♦ Blank template (students can make up their own pattern) For each of the 3 patterns: ♦ student template with grid lines. ♦ completed student template (great as a reference during the lesson). ♦ the pattern without the grid lines (could be used as a simple colouring activity if desired). An example of what is included for each of the 3 patterns is included in the images. Provided in 2 different paper sizes: ♦ A4 size paper ♦ Letter size paper Make ... colour ... cut ... display The blank template includes: grid lines, lines of symmetry, outer circle. © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Comparing fractions - Edexcel (Very low ability) SEN

Comparing fractions - Edexcel (Very low ability) SEN

Hi, This bundle is designed for students that really struggle to understand the core understanding of fractions. This lesson looks into working out a shaded part of a shape, ordering fractions with the same denominator and using fractions to describe a part of a shape. The worksheet provided has the 3 tasks the students will be completing within the lesson. I have used this resource with 2 low ability groups and they thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. I have incorporated a wide use of differentiation and challenge within the PPT. To keep the students engaged I have also implemented a few RAG activities (mini plenaries). The Learning objectives covered are: - I can describe fractions by looking at visual aids - I can order fractions with the same denominator - I can use fractions to describe parts of a shape Please read the above before purchasing, Thank you. Enjoy! Miss.S.Rindi

Functional Skills Maths - Brick Storage

Functional Skills Maths - Brick Storage

A useful activity to cover section 2 the space area of the City and Guilds functional skills exam. Students have to calculate the no of bricks required for a wall, calculate the cement in a lorry and compare it against what is needed and finally interpret a scale drawing. Aimed at a confident level 2 learners but level 1 could do it with support.

Math Revision - Giant Graphical Colour Floor Puzzle

Math Revision - Giant Graphical Colour Floor Puzzle

Revision of English Mathematics Key Stage 3 and/or Key Stage 4 basics. Giant floor puzzle. Print to A3 paper and then cut out the triangles. Laminate if you wish to reuse. Testing suggests optimum size for groups is 8-10 pupils. Alternately, give a couple of pieces to each pupil at the start; then as pieces placed and pupils sit in circle to watch the "core team" fit the pairs together, run substitutions in/out of the choir team from the chairs. Alternately, insist each pupil holds a single puzzle piece and finds every match for his/her piece and then stands up holding their piece in the air. This requires an overhead fish-eye/sports camera looking down on your hall/room - and a bigger than A3 print.

Clumsy Clive On Vectors

Clumsy Clive On Vectors

Clive is doing some vectors work this time and is confused once again. Can you check all his answers, correct them and explain where he's gone wrong. He's made some typical mistakes which should get everyone (students and teacher) talking.
