Perimeter Of Semi Circles

Perimeter Of Semi Circles

This lesson is based around finding the perimeter of a semi circle. Only covers semi circles. Start assumes both area and circumference of circles have been taught but could easily be change.

Circumference of circles including reverse Circumference

Circumference of circles including reverse Circumference

Starter is through a linked powerpoint - you will need to change the location for your machine or load up separately. This flashes up the various parts of a circle learners complete with aid of powerpoint. Lesson then goes through finding the circumference of a circle. Either scaffolded or not. Then onto reverse with the option of finding circumference, then reverse with or without scaffolding. Could easily be split into two lessons with one more independent exercise on finding the circumference of a circle.

Maths Games KS2 Bundle (Four in a Row)

Maths Games KS2 Bundle (Four in a Row)

Expand your bank of Key Stage 2 Maths games with this bundle of easy-to-prepare and well-differentiated fun and strategic Four in a Row games. Most just require printing and laminating. I recommend printing most in A3 but A4 would be okay too. There are games for Area, Money, Decimals, Doubling and Halving 2 and 3 digit numbers and Times Tables and Division. You can find previews and more information about each resource that is included in this bundle if you click on them but here are some details: CHANGE FOR £20 2 standard game boards and 2 lower ability boards. Children roll dice to find out which column they can do a calculation in and then must work out the change required for £20 for one of the items pictured and priced in that column. Children write on the change using different colour whiteboard pens or add their initials. All answers included. DOUBLES AND HALVES 6 boards to consolidate doubling and halving of two-digit numbers. Includes a one-star version of both the doubling and halving game for younger or lower ability pupils - sidebars are included, featuring all answers, which children can strike through when used. It’s also included without the answer sidebars in case your pupils don’t need this added support. This version focuses on lower 2-digit numbers and multiples of 10. Then there’s two different, more challenging versions of both the doubling and halving boards (two-star versions). All answers included. Play as the money game above. AREA 3 differentiated boards: One-star version - area of rectangles, squares and right-angled triangles. No conversion required. Two-star version – as above but with more challenging calculations. Some conversion required between centimetres, metres etc. Includes decimal lengths and breadths. Three-star version - area of rectangles, squares, right-angled triangles and compound shapes. Some conversion required. Includes decimal lengths and breadths and more challenging calculations. Some of the compound shapes require children to work out the length of a side, using other given sides, before they can work out the area. Children will be able to do some of the calculations mentally but could use paper or mini whiteboards to work out the more challenging ones before writing in the answer on the grid. TIMES TABLES / DIVISION 4 Times Table Boards in colour and black and white versions. All 4 available in LA supported versions (with answer sideboards – see money game above), standard version (2-9 times tables) and in a version with 11 and 12 times tables added. Use whiteboard pens as in the games above. The division game (1 board) requires calculation cards (supplied) to be printed on two different colours of paper or card. In turn children pick up a card and lay it on an answer. DECIMAL PLACE VALUE Consolidate place value to 2 or 3 decimal places. 2 differentiated boards: The 1 star board was originally designed to go with the cards to 2 decimal places, while the more challenging 2 star version was designed for the cards to 3 decimal places. However, both sets of cards would work with either board. For use with this game are two sets of 54 decimal number cards featuring numbers from 0.001 to 2.01 (1 set includes numbers up to 2 decimal places, the other up to 3 decimal places). I hope these resources save you time and help your pupils learn in a fun way. Thank you for your interest.

Forming and Solving Equations when GIVEN THE PERIMETER or when shapes have EQUAL SIDES

Forming and Solving Equations when GIVEN THE PERIMETER or when shapes have EQUAL SIDES

Ideal resource for teaching pupils how to form and solve equations when you are given the perimeter and given side lengths in algebra OR when side lengths are given using algebra and are equal (e.g. opposite sides of a rectangle). Includes the following: Two practice questions where pupils are given shapes that have side lengths using algebra (e.g. 2x + 3, 3x - 4). Pupils need to form an expression for the perimeter and make it equal to the given perimeter. There is then a slide with 8 questions for pupils to practice. Two pratice questions where pupils are given a rectangle / isosceles triangle and use the fact that there are pairs of equal sides to form an equation and solve (e.g. 4x - 3 = 2x + 7). There is then a slide with 8 questions for pupils to practice. Finally there is a slide with 8 questions (different styles) for pupils to use as revision.

Which one doesn't belong display

Which one doesn't belong display

Based on the book 'Which one doesn't belong?: A shapes book.' by Christopher Danielson and the website http://wodb.ca/, this display allows pupils to look at different areas of mathematics, discussing their mathematical properties. This will enable pupils to use mathematical language and investigate what makes each one unique compared to the others.

Mental Maths Bundle KS2

Mental Maths Bundle KS2

A bundle of my Lower and Upper Key Stage 2 Mental Maths resource packs – a total of 30 PowerPoint Speed Tests, 432 Self-Check Cards and 16 Cross Number Puzzles. The Lower Key Stage 2 resources were originally designed for Year 4 (P5 and other equivalents) but would also suit some Year 3 (P4) classes too once the concepts have been covered. They could also be used for lower ability pupils in Upper KS2. They could be used as part of SATs preparation. The Upper Key Stage 2 resources were originally designed for Year 5 and 6 (P6 and P7 and other equivalents). They would also suit some early KS3 classes for consolidation and revision. The resources could be used as part of SATs preparation. Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Doubling & Halving, Fractions, Percentages, Decimals, Negative Numbers, Place Value, Money, Measure, Time and Angles. As the PowerPoints and Self-Check cards include money questions in UK currency, I have also included versions for countries that use dollars and cents. Differentiation: I have called the Lower KS2 resources Set B, while the Upper is Set A, rather than using any other identifier to help facilitate the use of both sets within the same class without the children being aware of the age level of the questions. All these resources are available individually or in smaller Lower KS2 and Upper KS2 bundles. The information below applies to both the Lower and Upper resources, so there’s double what it says: POWERPOINT SPEED TESTS 15 informal tests split across 3 PowerPoints, designed to be shown on the whiteboard with children recording answers in jotters or on paper. One question to a slide will allow children to focus for a few seconds before the next one comes up. The question slides are plain and uncluttered so as to minimise distractions. Run the PowerPoint presentation on a timer or click it on yourself, perhaps allowing a little longer for more challenging questions. Each test features 20 questions involving a variety of mathematical skills and knowledge. At the end of each test, the same 20 slides are repeated, this time with the answer added clearly. Children can then mark their own or a partner's work to reduce your workload. If short of time, you can whizz through the answers but the idea of each answer appearing with its question like this is that it allows for important discussions about strategies. SELF-CHECK CARDS A flexible resource that can be incorporated into many mental maths games and activities within the classroom. Laminate and use again and again as starter and early finisher tasks. There are twelve question cards on each A4 sheet. Leave them as 18 A4 sheets or cut each of the question cards separately to create 216 cards. There are versions both with and without the answers printed below the questions. The with-answers versions could be used by pupils questioning each other while the version without the answers could be used by individuals testing themselves. A separate answer card is included, which individuals could consult. CROSSNUMBER PUZZLES A fun resource for early finisher tasks, mental starters, homework etc. They could be completed by individuals or in pairs or small groups, where they will promote important discussions about different mental strategies. As in a crossword puzzle, children will find it easier to work out some of the more challenging questions once they have filled in the easier ones as some digits will already be there for them. ANSWER GRIDS for all 8 puzzles are included within the file and could be printed for pupils to self-check (or displayed later on the board), cutting down on your marking! I hope these save you time. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Many thanks. For engaging, great value Maths, Literacy and French resources, visit FullShelf Resources
