I create mathematics powerpoint and other resources for Key Stages 1, 2, 3 & 4, which are designed to clearly explain topics. These can be presented by the teacher, or accessed by individual students. I can create bespoke resources. Most KS2 and KS4 Maths Topics are in Bundles, as are the KS1 Powerpoint Mental Starters, or available separately If you'd like a bespoke bundle, please tell me the items you would like in it, and I will do this, at a discount of about 30% off total price.

There are 20 questions related to this bar chart. Average Speed This uses given distances and times for races to calculate the average speed, in metres per second. Body Mass Index This gives the BMI formula and students are required, with the aid of a calculator, to calculate BMI values from given data, and determine which weight category this relates to. Cardiac Output With the aid of a calculator, students are asked to find the missing values in the Cardiac Output equation given. Heart Rate Graphs 20 questions for students to answer using the heart rate against time graphs given. Marathon Fractions and Percentages From the figures for each marathon race, students are asked to give the fractions and percentages asked in the questions. Snooker Angles The animated path of a ball on a snooker table is shown, and students are then asked to calculate angles in straight lines from the given angles.
