High quality STEM resources for 7 to 18 year old learners and a number of key resources to support classroom and whole-school pedagogy. The resource "Metacogs" is a unique resource supported by the latest research. There is also extensive use of Blooms and SOLO taxonomy behind many of the resources. If you download any resource that could be improved then please leave specific feedback and I will endeavour to improve them further.

Biology of Extracting DNA from Kiwi Fruit

(1)
All the PPT's and resources for this fantastic practical lesson. Allows students to obtain the fine DNA threads from kiwi using mostly safe and available chemicals. Adds richness and interest to the theory-heavy content of the genetics units in KS3 and KS4. Tried and tested so I know it works. Please also ensure you do your own risk assessment. As always follow @boostprogress and @CE4ET.

Science of Solids, Liquids and Gases VI - Theory

(5)
L4 to L6 exploration of different models of the particle theory. Requires students to do some extended descriptions and to evaluate three different diagrammatic models. Finishes with an evaluation of six substances that are challenging to classify - these may also be given to students to add a practical/kinesthetic aspect. There is also link to SOLO taxonomy to help with the progression mapping. As always provide feedback and you can follow me @boostprogress

Bloom's Success Criteria

(0)
Use this resource to set 'I can.....' success criteria for students which match Bloom's heirarchy and traditional measures of attainment. In addition within the lesson use them to increase or build the cognitive challenge of subjsequent or differentiated tasks. I will soon post a few examples to help achieve this measure of outstanding lessons. Follow me on twitter for updates on latest resources: https://twitter.com/boostprogress
Mathematics of Words I  - Algebraic Expressions
BoostProgressBoostProgress

Mathematics of Words I - Algebraic Expressions

(0)
This is a lesson ained at Level 4+ students where students use scrabble tiles (cards) to become familiar with numerical values of letters and begin to work with expressions. Blooms sets the cognitive demands of the scrabble activity. Highly kinesthetic and helps early understanding. Later slides also cover solving simple expressions (using cards) and there are some extension questions from CIMT at the end. A lesson plan will follow but please suggest some activities in the comments that have worked with this resource. Follow me on twitter @boostprogress

Mathematics of Word IV - Expanding Brackets L5+

(0)
A resource for L5+ or grade C pupils. Requires Maths Watch videos. There is a linked lesson at L4+ in my resources if this is too demanding. Once again the basis for a lesson and does not contain the lesson plan or rich questioning resources. It should also be followed with some worded problems and contextual examples which I may add soon? Please add any suggestions to comments for improvements.

Mathematics of Measures I - Units and Lengths L4+

(0)
A couple of lessons introducing metric and imperial measures and their symbols. It then moves onto estimating and measuring lengths, before finishing with conversions between different measures of length (L5). Borrow fromthe scientists a set of 1m rulers to add a kinesthetic aspect to the measuring. You may even set a mini-competition for most accurate estimates. As always follow me @boostprogress and leave feedback and comments.

A2 Biology - Inheritance - 5 - Sex Linkage This is the fifth lesson on the GCE A-level Biology series on 'Inheritance' and as the title suggested covers Sex Linkage crosses. Tasks are differentiated at A, C and E standards. All the familiar examples are covered including Mendelian pea characteristics and coat colour. If there are suggestions or amendments to improve this resource then please let me know.

The PPT contains a range of activities for use with either BTEC Applied Science group or KS3 L4+ groups. Resource covers nature, types and causes variation and inheritance examples. There are a range of activities, including fingerprint and eye colour analysis and images for group tasks. Mr Men/Little Miss activity was 'borrowed&' from another TES donor as I liked it so much! Inheritance covers eye colour, tongue rolling and thumbs using punnet squares. Finally the determination of gender and meiosis. As always leave feedback and follow @boostprogress and @CE4ET.

A series of PPTs that support an introduction to acids and alkalies for KS3. There are a couple of well described practicals testing pH of solutions, simple neutralization and the indigestion tablet practical. There is also a short assessment to finish off the topic at L4+ and L5+. All objectives leveled and linked to SOLO taxonomy. As always follow @boostprogress or @CE4ET and leave feedback.
Numeracy cards
BoostProgressBoostProgress

Numeracy cards

(0)
A cross-curricular numeracy resource. Each card is identified by science, geography or technology as an area of pupil weakness - specifically linked to numeracy/mathematical skills. These cards may be used for information by teachers, displayed in classrooms or pupil exercise books as a learning resource. I am hoping to encourage other teachers to produce a few more and email them back to me. The cards are also part of a whole-school numeracy action plan and the full set of KS3 and 4 will contain 80 cards - plus any emailed to the collection.

Skills for Science

(0)
This is one of our "Skills for Science" which supports 11-16 year olds with the development of softer skills of How Science Works. They are all focused around practical tasks and then focus on a area, such as planning experiments, experimental safety, data collection and mathematical analysis and evaluation. They are ideal for the new GCSE Science specifications in the UK and more general aspects of wider science education in the USA. All are high quality and well supported with images and relevant contexts.
