Hi there. I'm a Mathematics teacher who loves making resources. My resources encourage discussion and help ALL kinds of students in Mathematics. Sequencing and mix-and-match activities, 3 level guides (based on Bloom’s Taxonomy) and clozes are tasks that work really well - they are conversation starters and encourage deeper thought as well as provide good formative feedback for the teacher. I use them with my classes and my students enjoy the variety.

#### Geometry 3D Spatial Isometric Drawing Task

(1)
This resource is designed to help secondary school students develop their spatial skills by asking them to add extra blocks, remove blocks etc from isometric drawings. It is a 4-paged worksheet (with 4 pages of answers) which has recently been updated to allow for more room to draw shapes. The use of blocks can be encouraged or not used, either way it works.

#### Algebra Straight Line Graph Equation m and c Match Up

(1)
This activity involves matching up straight line graphs with their equations and m (gradient) and c values. Not only does this cut-out-and-move-around set of tiles give students another opportunity to experience drawing straight lines from slope (gradient) intercept method but it also allows them to start off at any of these three places and work towards finding the others eg starting with m and c they can write the equation and draw the graph, or starting with the equation they can rearrange it to find m and c and then find the graph of the straight line. This kind of activity helps students to confirm their understanding of these concepts. It is also useful as both a starter exercise, a plenary exercise and a discussion exercise (ask for explanations). There are two versions of the same resource here: 1 CARD SORT version (for printing onto card or laminating) 2 WORKSHEET version (for students who prefer to use colour of label - not always a good idea, especially if they make mistakes, and we do expect them to make those mistakes in order to learn) There are 30 tiles in this task ie 10 separate situations. Within a group, individual students can contribute a tile and justify why they have chosen to match it up with other tiles. The formulae in this task are in a mixture of implicit and “y =…”. There is another activity with similar graphs to this one where all the formulae are all in “y = …” form. If you have found this resource useful, why not check out my other resources.

#### Algebra Parabola Transformations of y = x^2 Graphs Match-Up 1

(0)
This is the first of two activities where students match up quadratic functions (parabolas) with their equations. In this exercise the equations are in a form easily recognize for transformations eg they can use the vertex as a starting point in y = (x + 2)^2 - 3. In the second match-up exercise the equations are in expanded of format.

#### Algebra Linear Equations With X On Both Sides Sequencing Activity

(0)
This activity is a support for students who need structure when solving linear equations, for when they get past solving two-step linear equations and meet variables on both sides. These have whole or integer solutions. They require re-writing in the correct sequence. One solution is done as an example. The first step in each problem is locating the line which contains the original equation that needs solving. I use this mid-learning. It takes students probably 30 minutes and comments have been made that they find it worthwhile. The questions are on the first two pages and the following two pages have the required sets of solutions.

#### Calculus Differentiation Graphs Properties Match-Up

(0)
Students need to match-up a function with three properties relating to differentiation, decreasing and increasing functions, maxima and minima, points of inflection. This is another version of: Calculus Differentiation y’ and y’’ Graphs Quiz. This time the points are individually given and tiles relating to it are to be found. It is a discussion activity. There is a non-stationary point of inflection which may or may not be included depending on whether or not it is a learning outcome. Answers are included.

#### Geometric Reasons and Abbreviations Match-Up

(2)
The purpose of this geometry activity is to help students to recognize angles, their names and abbreviations. The physical handling of the tiles helps students to make connections (although some students prefer to use colour). This resource contains two versions of the same resource. One is larger tiles, for laminating or printing on card. The other version is a worksheet which students can use to colour in or label. There is a set of solutions. All of these three things are contained in the same pdf. Here are three more Geometry resources which are worth checking out: Geometry 3D 2D Spatial Drawing Match Up Geometry 3D Spatial Isometric Drawing Task Geometry Angles Definition Match Up Activity If you have found this resource useful, why not check out my other resources.

#### Number Fractions Decimals Percentages Continuum

(0)
This task involves cutting out and moving numbers, putting them into increasing order of size. It adds another dimension to learning, by giving students the chance to be kinaesthetic.

#### Algebra Bundle 2

(0)
This is a collection of five activities (which have also been listed as individual resources) that are useful when learning the basic skills involved with co-ordinates (points), gradients, straight line graphs, writing straight line formulae, intercepts and vectors (if needed). These activities can be used as starters or review work but they do help to tie the ideas together and provide the variety needed. Being able to handle the tiles adds another dimension to the learning process. I usually ask that students combine the tiles and glue them into their work books - some students have other ways of working with them eg numbering/shading in. The 3 Level Guide is a favourite as it encourages students to provide reasons or evidence to support their True/False decisions. The 3 levels are based on Bloom’s Taxonomy with the lowest level requiring remembering/understanding, the next level requiring ideas to be connected and the final level encouraging a deeper understanding. The cloze resource is straight forward and helps to “state the obvious” with the process of eliminating some options. It helps to confirm what the students already know or think they know.

#### Algebra Simplify Expand Solve Factorise Evaluate Instructional Terms Match-Up 1

(1)
Students struggle with the instructional terms that they’re presented with, particularly in Algebra. When asked to expand they often attempt to solve an equation that doesn’t even exist. They look at the context and often don’t read the instructions. This is a cute little exercise where they firstly have to match up the instruction with the correct situation and secondly they get to complete the exercise. Answers are included. This kind of worksheet is language-based, great for discussion and for reinforcing ideas . Mathematics students need variety and ask for more to be written. There are plenty more (including sequencing activities, clozes, 3 level guides etc) to look at in my batch of worksheets. I have combined some Algebra resources into two separate discounted bundles. Algebra Bundle 1 combines Instructional Terms Match-Up 2 and 3 as well as three sets of flash cards (simplifying, expanding, factorising, solving, rearranging) and an introductory match-up of simplified terms. Algebra Bundle 2 involves lines, gradients, points and vectors. This second bundle includes three match ups, a cloze and a 3 level guide.
