#### Table Splat! (Times Tables Game)

A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on. *Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*Save money when bought as part of a bundle.

#### Lesson on Venn Diagrams and HCF and LCM

This KS3 Lesson Plan in PowerPoint demonstrates how we can use Venn diagrams to find the HCF and LCM. Ideal to be used on the IWB and questions are given for students to practice the knowledge of this topic.

#### 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.

#### KS3 Maths Worksheets: Ratio & Proportion

Four (4) differentiated worksheets on the topic of Ratio and Proportion. Classwork or Homework sheets. Use all 4 in the one class to help with differentiation, or start with the easiest of the worksheets and have students progress at their own rate.... or of course use them however you wish.

#### 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!

#### 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 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.

#### Football Scores Investigation (GCSE Probability)

This is an investigation (including teacher notes and worksheets) which is suitable for GCSE maths students, though higher ability KS3 students should be able to complete it.The problem students have to answer is 'Can you find a formula to find out the total possible number of half-time scores if you know the full-time score of a football match?' Probability is the main topic covered (listing outcomes, formula for total number of outcomes) as well as algebra topics such as expanding brackets, sequences, factorising and generalising formulae. Pupils can probably work on this independently with some teacher input in setting up the investigation and prompting pupils.

#### Fidget spinners and probability

Mini project where students are using fidget spinners to calculate probability!Fantastic lesson that can be used as part of mathematics or science. Spin the sinner - where will it land?

#### KS2/KS3/GCSE Square Numbers Investigation

An investigation (including teacher notes and worksheets) into the origins of square numbers which guides students to generate the square numbers sequence and observe the patterns within it. This investigation would be suitable for a wide variety of age groups including KS2, KS3 and GCSE. In terms of differentiation, earlier stages of the investigation (looking at the patterns in the square numbers) may be more suitable for lower ability learners whereas the latter stages of the investigation (finding the nth term of a quadratic sequence) should stretch higher ability students. Topics covered in this resource are mental arithmetic, properties of numbers, nth term (quadratic) and sequences.
