Harry Potter's Potions (A Ratio lesson).Powerpoint

A bit of fun for a cooperative year 7 group. PPt of Harry Potter potions (all from the films) - use ratios and scale up potions. Students then develop their own potion for their chosen purpose and use direct proportion or unitary method to scale up and down. Good for display work. Ends with a Voldemort, and a link to youtube for a totally don’t-do-it-for-ofsted but its a youtube classic. Did this because this group loved a bit of mystery in the Apprentice Trials. Added extra youtube link at Rowan's request!!

Pop up 3D nets & islamic patterns. Activity.KS3, 2

This is a great activity to help children understand the how nets are made up without all of those fiddily flaps! Just cut out the nets, glue the first side onto card and sew the dots in order, securing the ends together underneath the card. Then pull and the net comes together making a 3D shape fantastic. The paper also explains how to make islamic patterns.

The Wizard Apprentice Trials

The Wizard Apprentice Trials

Rich task/revision - A story setting for revising assorted year 7 topics - number theory, sequences, ratio. Students work in groups of 3 and solve puzzle tasks. The tasks allow them to progress on a journey to rescue the treasure and palace sprites from the Giant Bebothered. I did it as a 2 lesson challenge with hints for the students, but really making them think things through and use a Maths dictionary and text books to solve the rpoblems rahter than rely on teacher help. Students loved it, in the future I may jazz it up a bit with a powerpoint to introduce the task with some fx and music. Let me know if you think I should.

Trigonometry from First Principles(ish)

Trigonometry from First Principles(ish)

This is a series of worksheet which guide the students to derive the concept of Trig for themselves… The worksheets should be worked through in the following order: Similar Triangles.doc Using Ratios.doc The Functions.doc Calculating the Functions.doc The idea is that you start by looking at similar triangles and then examine similarities… Leading to looking the ratio of sides… Define these ratios and explain why they can also be defined as a function of the single angle (when in a right-angled triangle)… I hope to write these up properly at some point, but till then I hope they are of some use to people!
