Combination of transformations

(1)
Complete lesson on combining transformations. Includes: > Starter - run the powerpoint and it will animate all 4 transformations at once! Discuss with students which transformation each one is showing and congruence. > 2 full examples on combination of transformations. Students have a worksheet to follow along with. Just click through the slides and each step of working will appear on the board. When it comes to the rotation, you can grab and rotate the tracing paper to show students how to do this. Also goes through identifying the overall transformation as a stretch activity. > I added in a worksheet I found on TES on combined transformations as the main activity of the lesson. > Mini review question on combined transformations. I get the students to complete it then I collect them in and give them feedback for them to stick into their books.

Translation by a vector

(0)
Complete lesson on translating a shape by a vector. Includes: > Starter - what is the word? Discuss meaning on translation. > Several examples. Begins with instructions (eg 4 right 1 up). Then vectors moving onto more complicated vectors. You can click and drag the shapes into the right position (get students to come up to board and do it). > Information slide for students to copy down on vectors. > Mini whiteboard (AfL) activity. What does this vector show?/What vector would you write for these instructions? > Activity for students to complete (green shapes are easier, then yellow then red). Same activity with full instructions as a support sheet. Full solution included. > Extension: Using coordinates - what happens? Full solution included. > Activity on finding the vector of translation (and its reverse) > What do you notice? Extension: what do you notice about vectors A>B B>C and A>C > Plenary - which of these shapes is not a translation? Spells out MATHS
Times tables weekly challenge - Levels 1 to 5

Times tables weekly challenge - Levels 1 to 5

(0)
These timetable challenges become gradually harder as students move up through the levels. I used these in intervention and had all students begin on level one and they could only progress if they could get everything correct in the ten minutes. We also use them in our dinner time maths club sessions as a bit of a weekly competition between students.
Which of these could be the odd one out and why?

Which of these could be the odd one out and why?

(10)
Great little activity for starters. Good for differentiation/mixed ability sets. I've tried to make sure that there is a reason every one could be the odd one out on each slide so that students can give more than one answer and/or more than one reason as well. Differentiated by outcome so allows students of different abilities to perceive the problem in their own way. I will update the resource with more variations over time so keep checking back and re-downloading.

Horse racing
JaggersMathsJaggersMaths

Horse racing

(1)
Let each student pick one of the horses to back in the race (but don't tell them the dice will decide!). Roll 2 dice and add together the numbers to decide which horse moves forward. After the race, have them change their horses and race again. (This depends on the length of your lesson obviously) Have them work out which horse is most likely to win using probability. Why won&'t 1 move? Why is 12 very unlikely to move? Why doesn&';t 7 win every race?
The exact values of sin cos and tan

The exact values of sin cos and tan

(0)
2 lesson introduction into the exact values of sin cos and tan 30, 45, 60 and 90. The first lesson aims to show students where the values come from and enables them to find the values for themselves. The second lesson shows them how to find the values quicker now that they know the 2 triangles. It also touches on why we need this - SOHCAHTOA questions without a calculator. http://www.missbanks.co.uk/single-post/2016/06/16/Exact-trigonometric-values

Solving quadratics by factorising

(0)
Complete lesson on solving quadratics (with coefficient of x sqaured = 1) by factorising. Includes: > Starter on - What is factorising? - Factorise these quadratics (recap) - I square a number and get 16. What was my number? It wasn't that... > Explanation: I think of two numbers. When I multiply them I get 0. What can you tell me about my numbers? > Examples > Test yourself > Differentiated questions with full solutions > Plenary on forming and solving

Goal free problems are GCSE questions without the question! Just the information. This allows students to create and answer their own questions which is the highest ranking skill in Bloom’s taxonomy and means the task is instantly differentiated by students’ outcomes. Enjoy!
The cheese tiered cake problem - difficult volume of cylinders problem

The cheese tiered cake problem - difficult volume of cylinders problem

(2)
This is a problem I designed for my top set year 10s on the volume of cylinders. It is based around a tiered cake of cheese. Students have to find the volume/diameter/height of each wheel of cheese. They start at the bottom and work their way up to the top; they can’t answer question 2 unless they have answered question 1 first etc… Very good functional/real life and engaging problem for them to work on. The second cake is much harder with question 2c being the most challenging. Full answers provided.
