Negative Numbers

FREE for new buyers – Enter code SEPTEMBER-SAVER at checkout. A range of activities to resource differentiated negative numbers lessons at Key Stage 2 (KS2) and some early KS3. Includes 3 fun Hidden Word / Spot the Mistake Puzzles (and solutions), a 30-card Loop Game / Dominoes Set and 16 Word Problems Cards (8 multi-step and 8 more simple). PUZZLES An engaging alternative to worksheets, these make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities. There’s one on increasing and decreasing temperature (Celsius), one for simple subtraction calculations with mostly negative number answers and a more challenging puzzle featuring addition and subtraction of negative and positive integers. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. 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 remaining boxes to reveal a maths word. There's a further challenge question / task at the bottom of the page linked to the word. 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. LOOP CARDS / DOMINOES Fun group / whole class activity to consolidate adding and subtracting negative numbers, using a range of phrases ('reduce by', 'increase', 'difference between' etc). It forms a continuous loop so start anywhere. WORD PROBLEM CARDS 8 Multi-Step Word Problem Cards and 8 more simple. Solutions can be printed back to back with question side for student self-checking or can be printed and made into separate cards if required. Consolidates understanding of negative numbers in the contexts of temperature (degrees Celsius), money / bank accounts and points in a sporting league. Work well as early finisher challenges. Separate pounds and dollars versions included. My Hidden Word and Crossnumber Puzzle Packs have been especially popular.

Calculate the answers. 2. Colour the squares. 3. Cut out your section. 4. Combine with the class! Students complete the problems to decode the colour key, then use it to colour their section of Obama mosaic. High school kids like colouring too! Their curiosity and desire to see the big picture come together will keep them working and helping each other! INCLUDED (.pdf and .docx files): ->Complete class set of 30 worksheets, that combine to create the Obama mosaic.

Ontario Curriculum: This is great for MAP4C, or MCR3U. All my "Colouring by..." math mosaics use the standard colours found in a Crayola 24 pack of coloured pencils. For best results, use the exact colour name match. Maybe a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun departmental purchase? :) I'd love to hear from you!

GCSE  Higher exam-style questions:  Fractions, ratios and percentages (Updated 22/9/2017)

GCSE Higher exam-style questions: Fractions, ratios and percentages (Updated 22/9/2017)

[Updated 20/9/2017: Ratio 'cancelling' problems added to Exercise 1] [Updated 21/9/2017: Description amended / typo errors corrected] [Updated 22/9/2017: Description amended to have a rant against TES!] This worksheet is aimed at students capable of attaining at least levels 5 to 7 of the new maths specification. This is a high-quality resource but priced low to encourage sales. I would price it lower if I could (and rely on a higher volume of sales to make a reasonable profit for the effort put in, which is substantial, believe me!) but TES forces a minimum price of £2, and a maximum discount of 25%, so the mimimum I can price it at is £1.50). Personally, I don't believe that resources should be expensive because teachers need so many!!! I have contacted TES in this regard but don't hold your breath - previous reasonable suggestions have been accepted, months ago, but have not yet been implemented!). Exercise 1 is a basic lead-in exercise in converting fractions to percentages, percentages to fractions, and cancelling ratios to their lowest form, all without using a calculator. Exercise 2, 3 and 4 are longer more challenging questions. Exercise 2 is based on application of a government levy to gas and electricity sales made by an energy company. Exercise 3 is based on the salt water content of a lake and comparing it to sea water, finding various ratios, masses, etc. Exercise 4, which is the longest exercise, is based on fuel deliveries made by a fuel distribution company, involving a range of calculations from lorry fuel economy to Gross Profit Margin (GPM). GPM is fully explained in the exercise. An answer sheet with full workings for the longer exercises is appended to the worksheet. PLEASE CHECK the notes on calculating Net Sales before giving Exercise 4, part (j) to your students, as they will need some explanation of that term. DOCX and PDF worksheets supplied.
