I have been in education since 1983 and am presently in a management position at an Independent Preparatory School in the United Kingdom. I have taught and been in leadership positions in both the private and state sector in South Africa and the United Kingdom. I have produced and adapted hard copy lessons and PowerPoint lessons for a number of years and will be updating the "Maths Worksheets Galore" shop on a regular basis.

I have been in education since 1983 and am presently in a management position at an Independent Preparatory School in the United Kingdom. I have taught and been in leadership positions in both the private and state sector in South Africa and the United Kingdom. I have produced and adapted hard copy lessons and PowerPoint lessons for a number of years and will be updating the "Maths Worksheets Galore" shop on a regular basis.

This PowerPoint presentation can be utilised as an individual or group activity. The 5 rounds are graded, starting with a 'warm-up' battery of questions progressing to the more challenging algebra questions at the end. All of the questions are followed by an answer slide.
There are 5 sets of x6 questions encompassing:-
Gathering 'like terms' / Simplification
Expanding of brackets
Factorising
Solving equations
Substitution
Negative/positive rules applicable

As early as Reception, boys and girls are introduced to mathematics. As they progress in school, they will learn mathematic skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and much, much more.
While mathematics can be fun and challenging for some boys and girls, it can equally be a very different experience for others. For many boys and girls, working with numbers and mathematical concepts can lead to what is commonly referred to as “mathematics anxiety”, in which they can develop a fear and stress about mathematics. They can feel anxiety about not getting the answers right and not understanding what is being taught. They may feel frustrated and upset about not doing well in mathematics, and may develop a dislike for the subject, making the development of mathematics skills even more difficult as they progress through the year groups.
I have given this booklet to parents at parent consultation evenings and have had good feedback. In the booklet I refer much to 'boys' as I teach at an all boys' school. Please substitute in 'boys and girls'.
I include a pdf and word document (docx) so that you might make it more user-friendly in your school.
Included:-
Common causes of anxiety
How does it originate?
Myths and misconceptions
Symptoms and underlying causes of errors
It is 'okay to make mistakes'
How to deal with mathematics anxiety
Mathematics games to play with children (parents) - from an early age
Problem-solving strategies
You can do mathematics!
Negative reaction is not just a reaction to failure

This jam-packed booklet contains loads of worksheets relating to ratio and proportion and is ideal for differentiated work in class, for homework/prep or for fun activities involving the whole family.
You may want to get your family together for this one as there is some cooking / baking involved.
Just don't allow your class to con their folks into believing that the baking is part of their homework! My lot did and I had a few banana loaves to sample the next day and a whole lot of explaining to one or two mums!
Enjoy!
