LittleStreams was set up in 2014 by educators and graphic designers Rebekah Humphrey-Bullen and Samuel Lovegrove. We make high quality, affordable resources for teachers and tutors, including worksheets, games, task cards and revision flash cards.

This pack is filled with worksheet activities covering the topic of patterns and sequences. All worksheets are differentiated, offering supported worksheets, as well as worksheets which challenge the most able students. Answer sheets are included.
Gaps In The Sequence asks students to find the missing numbers of sequences (some linear, some following patterns such as doubling each number) and to state the term to term rule.
The Fencing In and Dinner Table Conundrum worksheets introduce the idea of geometric patterns which grow at a linear rate, giving a visual representation on linear sequences. For the more able students, this worksheet asks them to find the nth term of the given patterns.
Fishing for Sequences asks students to find numbers which appear in a given sequence. The first differentiation covers only term to term rules. The middle differentiation includes nth term examples. The most challenging differentiation asks students to state with algebraic reasoning, why a given number is not in a sequence. This checks for a true understanding of sequences.
The fifth worksheet is all about the nth term, with a more challenging worksheet that pushes students to think about such sequences as square numbers, and fraction sequences. The sixth worksheet continues the nth term exploration, starting with students identifying whether a given sequences is linear, and stating whether a given number is in a sequence.
The seventh worksheet, Function Machines, asks students to find the given rule for some numbers. And finally, worksheet eight offers a unique challenge for uniquely able students. This worksheet introduces students to the proper mathematical notation for linear sequences, including the formula for finding any term in a sequence.

This pack is filled with worksheet activities covering combining like terms, expand and factorise expressions and substitution. All worksheets are differentiated to three levels, offering supported worksheets, as well as worksheets which challenge the most able students. Answer sheets are also included for all worksheets.
Term Trees introduce students to like terms, the essential knowledge needed to successfully combine like terms. Combing Terms Pyramid then puts this knowledge into practice. Geometry in Algebra goes one step further, and applies combining terms knoeledge to geometry scenarios.
The final combining like terms worksheet is a fun activity; a crossword. Students collect terms on a worksheet, and then put their answers in the crossword sheet. Each differentiated worksheet has the same questions, but to make things easier for some students, we have included some terms in spaces to give a clue. This is also great for self checking answers.
The next two worksheets focus on expanding and factorising, and is a standard worksheet with questions on both expanding brackets and factorising terms with one set of brackets (linear equations). For the challenging questions, this includes simple quadratics with one bracket; ie x(x+2). The second of these worksheets is an unusual activity combining area of shapes as a form of setting up equations to then factorise.
The final two worksheets looks at substitution. The first consists of a grid; the rows gives the value of x and y, and the columns give the expression to be substituted. The second is a collection of questions about substitution which includes an applied question to do with the temperature conversion equation and knowledge of commutative expressions.
All the worksheets in this pack focus on the essential manipuation skills of algebra needed to work with algebra effectively.

These 30 follow me cards are a great way to revise percentage of amounts including increasing and decreasing. Play is similar to dominoes, where the cards are placed end to end with the question to the answers, but each question only has one answer.
Students connect the questions and answers together forming a chain, with questions steadily getting harder. For extra challenge, don’t use a calculator.
Some ideas for how to use follow me cards:
-Have students race to connect the cards.
-Have a treasure hunt, around the classroom or outside. Students start with the starter card and record the solutions in the table.
-Students each take ownership of a card, and then get themselves in line correctly with the answers. If there are more than 30 students, assign some students as ‘managers’. If there are less than 30 students, the first students to connect their cards can be given the remaining cards.
- Cut each card in half and give the students a matching activity. They can then glue the answers into their books.

This factors 4-piece puzzle is a fun way to test students knowledge of factors, prime factors and types of number. Students match the number to it's factors, prime factors and number types.
It is designed to be easily cut with little wastage. So either the teacher or tutor can prepare the cards by cutting them before hand, or students can cut their own cards, giving them a chance to see the solutions before they attempt the puzzle.

A 48-page creatively designed worksheet pack on Straight Line Graphs which includes:
• An introductory activity to check that students have the skills required to access this topic. This includes the substitution of values into a linear equation and then plotting the x and y value coordinates onto a graph.
• An investigation sheet, on which students will discover how the value of m and c in the equation y=mx+c affects the line graph.
• An activity where students will draw linear graphs from equations, and find equations from graphs.
• A cut and match activity where students can visually connect equations with real life scenarios.
• Challenge questions where students find gradients and y-intercepts when equations are not in the form y=mx+c, and the identificaion of parallel lines from equations only.
• A confidence checklist for students to assess whether they have grasped what they have learned in this pack.
A US version of this product is available in our US store here where notation is in US form (y=mx+b)

This activity offers a different way to teach tally and pictographs. Students choose 20 sweet cards from the sweet deck (or any amount you choose from the 45 cards). We recommend that 20 cards offers the most interesting collection to work with.
Students are invited to collect the data of their chosen cards and write it on the tally sheet. Finally, the students will then plot it on a pictograph. Three pictograph sheets are included, one that has a key of one image = one sweet, one of one image = 2 sweets, and a final one where students can input their own ratio of image to sweets.
The nature of this activity means that each student should, in theory, produce their own tally and bar graph, unique from other students in the class.
We have also included differentiated versions of the worksheets themselves for those who need a little help with matching the sweets colours to the name.
