A powerpoint and worksheet on converting between metric units of area and volume. The worksheet is scaffolded and allows the students to discover for themselves how to convert between the different units.
This is a set of 12 questions involving adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. Students need to read the worded problems and decide which operation they need to use. I ran this as a relay and displayed their team names and scores on the second powerpoint; they had 3 attempts at a question before they had to move on.
A lesson for low ability students that introduces collecting like terms, first by using language and pictures then moving into the more abstract. There is a differentiated worksheet in the powerpoint, which is followed by using whiteboards to simplify expressions with multiple terms including negatives.
Lesson covering the equation of a perpendicular line. Starts with students identifying reciprocals of numbers before moving on to finding the equation of a perpendicular line to a given line passing through a given point.
This is a collection of starters that I used for my third set Year 10s as a way to retain knowledge and revise foundation tier GCSE topics. There are 107 slides, each with 4-6 questions featuring a mixture of topics and problem solving exam style questions. Students became used to the routine and their confidence noticeably improved over time doing these every lesson.
A lesson on solving problems with averages. It starts with a mini-whiteboard activity to recap averages before moving on to problems involving reverse mean and finding numbers that satisify conditions e.g. mean of 5, mode of 4.
A lesson used as a simple introduction to using multipliers to find percentages of amounts. It starts with encouraging students to find 1% of an amount first to then find any other percentage, then thinking about what calculations they performed (e.g. divide by 100, multiply by required percentage) before the multiplier is introduced.
Foundation GCSE lesson on adding and subtracting decimals (Year 10). Includes:
Key skills starter
PowerPoint presentation covering adding and subtracting decimals
Questions and answers with problem solving extension questions available
GCSE exam questions and answers covering adding and subtracting decimals in the context of bank statements (i.e. understanding the terms credit, debit and balance)
This is a set of three lessons for a higher tier GCSE class on changing the subject. It starts with the simplest examples in the 1st lesson, using the concept of BIDMAS in reverse, before moving on to examples where factorising is required. The 2nd lesson builds on this and introduces fractions with the subject in the denominator. The final lesson acts as a consolidation with a set of relay questions for students to complete in pairs. All lessons have a set of questions and answers included.
