Maths & Cross-Curricular Resources

My time zone and your time zone may be the same time zone. Maybe midnight for you and midnight for me are the same. Your month and my month could be the same month. But they could be different. Not every day. Not all the time. Not everywhere. But some times in some places on some days. Perhaps even on the day this was written.

Snakes and ladders; but with fractions; and dodecagonal dice: sum the negatives *and* positives before you make *your* move! Yes, you too can practice: * calculating equivalent fractions, so you can translate the * fractions on the * faces of the dodecagonal dice you made and hence * calculate the sum of the * positive and negative fractions on respective faces of each and hence * make your correct directed fraction move! equivalent fractions | adding & subtracting fractions | directed number | nets | dodecagons | properties of solids

Math Revision - Giant Graphical Colour Floor Puzzle

Math Revision - Giant Graphical Colour Floor Puzzle

Revision of English Mathematics Key Stage 3 and/or Key Stage 4 basics. Giant floor puzzle. Print to A3 paper and then cut out the triangles. Laminate if you wish to reuse. Testing suggests optimum size for groups is 8-10 pupils. Alternately, give a couple of pieces to each pupil at the start; then as pieces placed and pupils sit in circle to watch the "core team" fit the pairs together, run substitutions in/out of the choir team from the chairs. Alternately, insist each pupil holds a single puzzle piece and finds every match for his/her piece and then stands up holding their piece in the air. This requires an overhead fish-eye/sports camera looking down on your hall/room - and a bigger than A3 print.

Key Stage 3 in 2 Years - Progression Maps - Matching 2-Year Timeline - Spring Term (Y8)

Key Stage 3 in 2 Years - Progression Maps - Matching 2-Year Timeline - Spring Term (Y8)

Folllowing the year 8 timeline for the Spring term I have provided elsewhere on this website, this breaks each objective into four steps: "Consolidating", "Developing", "Securing", "Mastering". Each objective is taken directly from the "new" UK National Curriculum for Key Stage 3 [where an objective is given for each bullet point (from page 5): https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/239058/SECONDARY_national_curriculum_-_Mathematics.pdf ] . "Consolidating" - is generally pitched for the weakest pupils: who are revisiting key stage 2 material that may have been first taught before year 6. "Mastering" - will generally pitched to stretch at or beyond expectations for key stage 3. Problem solving exercises will need to be set within and around material each week. Three hours per week has proven enough to deliver the material to the very most committed and able pupils (when accompanied with sufficient homework); however, five hours per week (and some looping back to earlier objectives if/when later objectives prove inaccessible) may suit pupils who would benefit from such an approach.
