What Was The Question? - Fractions, Decimals, Percentages Special

What Was The Question? - Fractions, Decimals, Percentages Special

Four sets of four problems where students have the answer but there are blanks in the questions which require filling in. This is designed to create discussion in class and hopefully provided natural differentiation (find the general solution where possible compared to finding a single solution). I will be using these as starters or plenaries as I believe they will develop deeper understanding of topics, but feel free to use them as you like (you will as you don’t need me to hold your hand).

Working With Numbers

Working With Numbers

I was asked to help some students (Years 9 and 10) who massively lacked confidence with number, so I came up with this set of questions working through general calculations, calculations with brackets, powers, fractions, percentages and decimals. In each case the student must balance both sides of the equation; it is designed to encourage discussion and thinking rather than just running through a set of similar questions. I hope you find it useful.

Fast Foods - activity

Fast Foods - activity

I created this resource to raise my students’ awareness of fast foods and their contents. I used this resource in my maths lessons but it could be used for healthy eating, discussions, health and social care and many more. In my maths lessons, students learned the daily recommended allowances and how companies can confuse us with labels as well as writing maths questions at their differentiated levels. The students wrote different maths questions ranging from basic addition to complex percentages and averages. They were required to give feedback on each other’s questions too.

End of Term Games

End of Term Games

This activities are aimed at key stage 3 students but could be used as revision for 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. 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 foundation 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!

Maths Game

Maths Game

Maths Game Penalty Shoot Out Maths Game This is great for end of term fun! All answers are included. There are 3 matches and a total of 60 questions. The questions are mental maths questions such as:- • What is 1,000 minus 2? • What is 7 squared? • What is 2.3 add 1.4? This resource is suitable for Key Stage 2 and 3 (years 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9). The resource can be printed in black and white or colour. The document is 6 pages in total. Teacher’s Instructions - Match Rules • Divide the players into 2 teams – e.g. blue and red (or choose team names). • Each team nominates one person to take the 1st penalty. The nominated students both stand up. The teacher asks the blue team question 1 to the blue team player and awards a penalty if the student answers correctly. The red team penalty taker is then asked the matching red question 1 and awarded a penalty if the answer is correct. • Another person from each team is then chosen to take the 2nd penalty. • Play continues for 10 rounds and then the number of goals is added up for each team. • If there is a draw, play goes to extra time. Each team chooses their best player to take the final penalty. Only one question is asked and the 1st player to answer correctly wins the whole match for the team. • At the end of the match, players in the winning team pick a “man of the match” - the student who they think played the best. • This game can also be played by groups of students by allowing one student to be the “teacher”. • It might be fun if the teacher uses their whistle and acts as the referee. • Teachers may also want to allow a victory dance/celebration on scoring a penalty!

What Percentage is shaded?

What Percentage is shaded?

A basic worksheet to help my Year 9s understand that just because 12 parts of a shape are shaded, that doesn’t necessarily mean 12% of the shape is shaded! I got my class to first of all determine the fraction shaded, and then change the denominator to 100 to determine the percentage shaded. It comes in 2 parts - in the first part, the denominators of the fractions multiply easily up to 100. In the second part, they don’t, e.g. 18/40, so they need to be simplified first. Solutions are provided.
