At the end of the test there is an extension activity which will allow more able students to stretch themselves. This resource is ideal for either formative or summative assessment and can be used in lesson time as a topic assessment, starter or plenary activity or for homework or revision. Topics include: Circle nomenclature: understand and use the terms centre, radius, chord, diameter and circumference. Circle nomenclature: understand and use the terms tangent, arc, sector and segment. Visit http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications/by-subject/mathematics/ for more resource ideas.

#### Maths / STEM / Science Project Lesson - Density of Metals (Density, Ratio, Volume)

This is a Maths/STEM project lesson based around calculating and comparing the density of different metals. Students have to first calculate and rank the densities of the metals, than answer questions based on combining different ratios of metals. These questions involve working out density, volume or mass from compound metal alloys of differing ratios. The lesson was pitched at year 10, and has a support sheet to enable access for foundation students. The lesson was designed to last 75 minutes, but actually the difficult quesitons in the sheet means it could easily last 90 minutes or more if required.

#### Plans & Elevations Matching Activity & More

Three activities for students to work on 2d representations of 3d solids, including: 1. Plans &amp; Elevations Matching Activity Students must decide which plan, side and front view matches each of six different solids drawn on isometric paper. Answers are included and students record their answers in a table so you can check at a glance if they are on the right track. 2. Plans &amp; Elevations Worksheet This could be used as an extension or a homework activity. Students have to draw the plans and elevations of a set of solids. The final question is in reverse - given the plans and elevations, can they work out the solid? 3. Isometric Drawing Practice This includes two activities help students learning about drawing in 3d. The first challenges them to draw all the different solids with 4 cubes. The second activity involves volume and surface area and challenges them to draw cuboids with specific criteria. ** Now Updated To Include** Two additional activities including plans &amp; elevations of solids with sloping sides &amp; scale drawings. Answers are included for all activities.

#### Drawing 3D Shapes in Isometric Paper KS4

A powerpoint presentation to explain now to draw 3D shapes on isometric paper. Part of my KS4 Maths Topics series, but this could also be used at KS3. This presentation has 9 slides (including one title and one end slide), and includes six examples, some of which are illustrated in the cover image for this product. Your pupils will love the clarity of the animated examples.

#### 5 Worksheets on the Circle Theorems

5 Worksheets covering all the circle theorems - around 50 questions in total including answers Circle Theorems 1 is 10 questions on the angle at the centre and also the same segment Circle Theorems 2 is 10 questions on angles in a semicircle and a cyclic quadrilateral Circle Theorems 3 is 6 questions on radius / tangent and 2 tangents from one point Circle Theorems 4 is 6 questions on the Alternate Segment Theorem Circle Theorems 5 is 20 questions on all the theorems None of these questions are ridiculously complex as you get in textbooks and they are extremely well drawn though not to scale.

#### Roll-a-topic GCSE foundation Geometry Revision

A revision activity that can be used for KS3 or foundation GCSE pupils. Can be implemented in lots of ways. I ask pupils to get into pairs, take turns rolling two dice to form a co-ordinate and attempt to solve the corresponding question. Pupil put their initials on problems they have solved and after 30-45 minutes stop and count who has solved the most. Very engaging for year 10 and 11 foundation GCSE pupils. If you use this resource please leave a review! :)

#### Corresponding and Alternate Angles (full lesson)

An animated powerpoint demonstrating the equivalence of corresponding and alternate angles. Includes a starter to recap angles on a straight line and in a full turn, three worksheets of increasing difficulty, and a game of pairs where students match diagrams with the size of the unknown angle and the rule used.

#### Illustrating properties of shapes

2 differentiated worksheets working towards mastery in identifying and illustrating properties of shapes, including parallel lines, equal sides, equal angles, right angles and perpendicular lines. Includes reasoning and problem solving questions.

A complete lesson on the theme of star polygons. An excellent way to enrich the topic of polygons, with opportunities for pupils to explore patterns, use notation systems, and make predictions &amp; generalisations. No knowledge of interior or exterior angles needed. The investigation is quite structured and I have included answers, so you can see exactly what outcomes you can hope for, and pre-empt any misconceptions. Pupils investigate what happens when you connect every pth dot on a circle with n equally spaced dots on their circumference. For p&gt;1 this generates star polygons, defined by the notation {n,p}. For example, {5,2} would mean connect every 2nd dot on a circle with 5 equally spaced dots, leading to a pentagram (see cover image). Pupils are initially given worksheets with pre-drawn circles to explore the cases {n,2} and {n,3}, for n between 3 and 10. After a chance to feedback on this, pupils are then prompted to make a prediction and test it. After this, there is a set of deeper questions, for pupils to try to answer. If pupils successfully answer those questions, they could make some nice display work! To finish the lesson, I’ve included a few examples of star polygons in popular culture and a link to an excellent short video about star polygons, that references all the ideas pupils have considered in the investigation. I’ve included key questions and other suggestions in the notes boxes. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

#### Polygons introduction

A complete lesson on types of polygon, although it goes well beyond the basic classifications of regular and irregular. This lesson gives a flavour of how my resources have been upgraded since I started charging. Activities included: Starter: A nice kinesthetic puzzle, where pupils position two triangles to find as many different shapes as they can. Main: A slide of examples and non-examples of polygons, for pupils to consider before offering a definition of a polygon. A slide showing examples of different types of quadrilateral . Not the usual split of square, rectangle, etc, but concave, convex, equilateral, equiangular, regular, cyclic and simple. This may seem ‘hard’, but I think it is good to show pupils that even simple ideas can have interesting variations. A prompt for pupils to try and draw pentagons that fit these types, with some follow-up questions. A brief mention of star polygons (see my other resources for a complete lesson on this). Slides showing different irregular and regular polygons, together with some follow-up questions. Two Venn diagram activities, where pupils try to find polygons that fit different criteria. This could be extended with pupils creating their own Venn diagrams using criteria of their choice. Could make a nice display. Plenary: A table summarising the names of shapes they need to learn, with a prompt to make an educated guess of the names of 13, 14 and 15 sided shapes. Minimal printing needed and answers included where applicable. I have also added key questions and suggested extensions in the notes boxes. Please review if you buy as any feedback is very much appreciated.

#### All 50 Maths Foundation Homework Revision Sheets (9-1) - Includes all ANSWERS

This is a bundle of all 5 sets of my homework sheets. I have been giving these out as a homework booklet to my year 11’s all year. For me a booklet consists of Homework 1,11,21,31,41,and 51. We then go through the answers so students can self assess. I feel these have helped strengthen their understanding on some of the basic topics, leaving me more time in class to concentrate on more complex problems.

Encourages students to think of different ways of putting a limited number of cubes together and draw the different views that are possible.

#### Isometric Drawing

A task that progresses nicely and allows those who pick this up quickly the chance to think a little more deeply about how to draw 3 dimensional shapes on an isometric grid.

#### Operation Bearings - Outdoor bearings activity

This is an adapted activity for practising bearings outdoors. Students are asked to use compasses on their phones to follow instructions on bearings. I had the students dropping a cone at each stage and trailing a piece of string behind them. Following correctly results in an arrow being formed on the ground, this can then lead to questioning like ‘we all started in different places, facing different ways, why are the arrows pointing the same way?’. They can then be extended to write their own instructions or story of bearings to follow. I found the original on a blog but with a photo of the worksheet, I re-wrote it, changed ‘clicks’ to ‘steps’ to work on a smaller scale and added an extension. I used this with a lower set year 9, but could also work with advanced year 7s through to weaker year 10s I think.

#### Fortnite - Bearings and Scale Drawings

Simple Bearings and Scale drawings activity based on Fortnite Battle Royale. Suitable for KS3. My Year 8 group are obsessed with this game, so made the sheet to hopefully engage them with this topic. Uploaded as a Word doc so can be easily edited - I’m sure there’s more that can be done using this game as a basis.

#### Compound Area with Circles - Problem Solving
