Cash for questions revision activity

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.

'Treasure Island' Coordindates & shape properties

'Treasure Island' Coordindates & shape properties

Give each student a copy of the the Treasure Quest document, containing a set of 8 treasure quest coordinate questions the pupils have to solve. Also give them a copy of the island map, the treasure map document. Display the excel application via an interactive white board. If a student has solve treasure quest 3, say, they come to the board select the appropriate work sheet, enter the coordinate and either the treasure will appear on the map at their coordinate, or they will receive a message telling them to try again.

KS3/GCSE Maths Investigations

KS3/GCSE Maths Investigations

A set of investigations (complete with teacher notes and worksheets) where students are set a challenging problem and work to find the solution. Each investigation should take up a whole lesson. With this set of investigations, the emphasis is very much on problem-solving and independent work of children, though the amount of input of the teacher will inevitable depend on the pupils' abilities. The investigations are flexible and can be adapted to meet the pupils' needs.The first investigation focuses mainly on probability and gets pupils to find the total possible number of half-time scores if given the full-time score, eventually finding a formula connecting the two. The second connects geometry and algebra, getting pupils to generate a formula which links the total possible number of triangles with a given perimeter. The third investigation gets pupils to discover the origins of square numbers.

GCSE Higher level Mathematics run around game

GCSE Higher level Mathematics run around game

This activity is aimed at Higher level 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. (For a higher level set this may need printing more than once)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 Higher level 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!

GCSE higher Areas of Triangles Investigation

GCSE higher Areas of Triangles Investigation

Teacher notes on an investigation on areas of triangles, also covering topics such as simplifying surds, Pythagoras' Theorem, congruency and algebraic formulae. The problem the students must solve is 'When the perimeter of a triangle is 20 cm and it is an isosceles triangle, how many possible triangles can there be?'. Students find this out through working out the area of each possible triangle and seeing a pattern.An extension is also included in this resource which gets pupils to work out the total possible number of any triangle (not just isosceles) with a perimeter of 20 cm. Students then work to find a link between the base length of the triangle and the number of possible triangles which can be drawn with that base length.A worksheet is included for each activity as well as notes and guidance on how to conduct the investigation with pupils.
