Simplifying in Algebra. 40 questions. Simplify simple algebra statements on to powers and multiplying out brackets. Useful tool to assess progress; use it once at the start of the topic then use it again after a week of input. Can be used as "Against the Clock" exercise.

Ten Maths lesson starters for KS3 lower ability.
These are ten slides on powerpoint. Useful for lesson starters. A mixture of questions for lesson starters to give you as a teacher those 5 minutes that you need register, settle etc. Slides have a variety of accessible ( hopefully) questions and enough to both occupy and give something to discuss. More in the next few weeks…

Units of Measure ( Metric & Imperial)
Lots of conversion facts.

Qualitative -v- Quantitative data descriptors. Simple definitions and examples.

Circles test.
Areas and circumference. Area of sector. In terms of Pi. A quick revision assessment.

KS3 and KS2 resource to introduce Venn diagrams. A practical, outdoor activity - just needs a playground and some chalk ( remember chalk ?). Simple to introduce and carry out.

Negative Powers the easy way. A tricky topic made much simpler by using listing as a way of building the answers to such questions as " ten to power negative 2 ?"

Algebraic fractions. An intro and some questions. Originally produced for high flying Year 9.

For KS3 lower ability students.
First tab is the grid to use.
Second tab is a set of instructions.
Please feel free to leave comments and any improvements/feedback.
Hope you and the students enjoy it.

A really easy way of teaching non-calculator multiplication. Low access point but leads on to decimal multiplication and word problems. Small amount of input from the teacher and lots of work for students to complete. Pupils have gained a huge amount of confidence from this simple method.

Lots of questions on Numbers.\nE.g. \nFind a multiple of 5 and a multiple of 6 that have a difference of 11\n\nFind two numbers which when added together make 20 and when multiplied = 84

Magic squares in Maths, some ancient History as well - and some Art.
KS3 and KS4
A great way to introduce magic squares as well as lots of calculations and logic.
A great topic for extension, investigations, group work and discussions.

Discussion starters for KS2 and KS3 on a powerpoint. Thirty one in total. Ideal to start the day and generate small group or class discussions. Useful for registration/form groups time. Should generate philosophical debate no matter what age. One per week will cover most of your school year.

Nice little number trick as a starter or investigation.

Number problems. A set of problems with clues and some workings out. A chance to give it a go and investigate what happens.
