Set of extension questions requiring students to combine their knowledge of mixed number to/from improper fraction conversions with solving equations. Main task gives practice of setting up and solving one-sided equations. The extension problem gives a two-sided equation. Perfect for groups with a range of abilities where some need to practice the basic conversions whilst others need more of a challenge. Suitable for KS2, 3 and 4.
Loop cards requiring students to estimate calculations by first rounding the numbers involved to 1 significant figure. Could also be used as a treasure hunt around the classroom. Suitable for KS3 or KS4.
A set of activities and cards designed for AS Core students. The tasks build upon GCSE knowledge in a format of problem more suited to A-Level mathematics. The 'Do' and 'Justify' cards detail tasks for the students to complete whilst the 'Think' cards offer hints & useful ideas to consider.
This worksheet is ideal to use when introducing angles on parallel lines - particularly if you’re doing it with a lower ability class. It gives students practice of using alternate, corresponding and co-interior angles to find missing values, asking them to tick the fact they’ve used each time.
Great activity introducing the concept of loci through the context of a crime scene. The PowerPoint provides a set of task cards that can be used as a whole class with a full size ‘crime scene’ mocked up and/or as individual/pair work where students create a scale drawing of the ‘crime scene’ using loci. Works well with KS3.
Students need to evaluate sets of four different expressions in order to establish which is the odd one out. Good starter or plenary activity. As an extension, get the students to design their own. Suitable for KS3 or KS4.
Differentiated worksheet covering equivalents fractions - starting with basic pairs involving unitary fractions progressing up to word problems such as " I am a fraction with a denominator between 35 and 45. I am equivalent to 3/7. Who am I?". Suitable for KS2 and KS3.
Starter looking at how to describe basic algebraic expressions in words. Students need to match the expression with its description. Suitable for KS2, KS3 or lower ability KS4. Extension to this activity also available.
