Rotation 90 180 270 degrees,  first  lesson for weaker students.

Rotation 90 180 270 degrees, first lesson for weaker students.

Designed as a first lesson on rotating shapes. I used Mrbartonmaths's powerpoint as a start for the demonstration, but needed some thoughts of turning 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Plus clockwise and anti clockwise. The worksheets were also found on TES, but I do not remember the author, Sorry.

Maths Activities

This MEGA BUNDLE contains 74 fun Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Maths / Numeracy Puzzles (and solutions) for Key Stage 2, some early Key Stage 3 and equivalents. Originally designed with mixed ability Y5 and Y6 in mind (Year 5 and Year 6), there are puzzles at different levels and on different concepts to suit a range of year groups and abilities throughout KS2 and some early KS3 too. An engaging alternative to worksheets, these flexible no prep puzzles make ideal starters, early finishers / fast finishing, revision, consolidation and homework activities! Whether working as individuals or in pairs or small groups your students will enjoy the challenge of competing to be the first to find the hidden word. Rounding, Negative Numbers, Multiplication, Division, Decimals, Fractions, Percentages, Angles, Area and Perimeter, 2D and 3D Shape, Measure and Time are all included here. FOR A LIMITED TIME THIS HUGE BUNDLE IS ONLY £1 (or equivalent) for first time TES buyers (Enter code JANUARY90 at checkout) and returning buyers can SAVE A MASSIVE 72% To suit different teachers and classes, these puzzles are also split into 3 smaller bundles, while some are available in further bundles alongside related games and activities. You can explore my TES shop or click on these links to the smaller bundles: BUNDLE 1: Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 1 Rounding: To the nearest 10, 100, 1000, whole number, one and two decimal places, nearest pound (dollar version also included) Fractions: Equivalent fractions, simplest form / simplifying, fractions of quantities, mixed numbers and improper fractions Multiplication: times tables, doubling, multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000, multiplying by multiples of 10 and 100. Negative numbers: Increasing and decreasing temperature (Celsius), simple subtraction calculations with mostly negative answers, addition and subtraction of negative and positive integers. THIS IS A TES RECOMMENDED RESOURCE. The negative numbers pack includes a loop game and self-check word problem cards alongside 3 puzzles. BUNDLE 2: Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 2 Percentages: Decimal and Fraction Equivalents, Percentages of Quantities / Amounts, Percentage Increases and Decreases Decimals: Ordering, Mental Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division of Decimals Division: Dividing Using Times Tables, Halving, Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000, Dividing by multiples of 10 and 100. Time: Telling the Time (Analogue), Converting Words to Digital, 12 and 24 Clocks, Converting Units of Time (Seconds, Minutes, Hours), Durations / Elapsed Time). BUNDLE 3: Maths Hidden Word Puzzles BUNDLE 3 Angles: Angle Types / Names (Acute, Right, Straight, Obtuse & Reflex), Measuring Angles up to 180 degrees, Measuring Angles up to 360 degrees, Angles Between the 8 Compass Points and Missing Angles (Vertically Opposite, Adjacent, Straight Line and Around a Point) Area and Perimeter: Squares, Rectangles, Right-Angled Triangles and Compound Shapes Converting Units of Measure: Length, Volume / Capacity, Weight (Mass), Ordering, Converting Measurements for Mental Addition and Subtraction calculations Shape: 2D Shape Names, Types of Triangles, Angles in a Triangle / Missing Angles, Properties of Quadrilaterals (includes symmetry, angles, parallel sides etc.) and Names and Properties of 3D Shapes / Objects For differentiation, there are additional less / more challenging versions of some puzzles. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a maths-related word is revealed after completing calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a calculation and a letter. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors. Then they assemble letters from the circled boxes to reveal the hidden maths word. (In the rounding puzzle pupils find the numbers that don’t round to specified target numbers and in some of the fractions puzzles, pupils must find non-equivalent fractions etc). Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. In many puzzles there is an extension question / challenge linked to the hidden word, which on some may require a little research if time. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. Thank you for your interest in my resources. I do hope your students enjoy using these puzzles. Please do consider giving a review on TES if you get a spare moment. I would be so grateful. Please visit FullShelf Resources for engaging, time-saving printables, activities and presentations to plan Primary (and some Secondary) Literacy / English, Maths / Numeracy and French lessons. I also have a growing collection of puzzles for special events, anniversaries and Social Studies.

Shapes & Symmetry (Topic 3):  An introduction.

Shapes & Symmetry (Topic 3): An introduction.

Topic 3 of 20 in the Junior Geometry series provides an accessible and task rich introduction to shape & symmetry. From identifying solid shapes in common objects, naming common geometric shapes (both regular & irregular) to lots of activities for a student to make shapes before a exploring symmetry (reflective & rotational). A succinct stand alone unit of work that is ideal fro preparatory work, at-home study and in-class resource. As with all GetMathsFit topics there are plenty of worked examples for students to explore before attempting a myriad of exercises and their associated solutions.
