Geometry 3D 2D Spatial Drawing Match-Up

Geometry 3D 2D Spatial Drawing Match-Up

This activity is designed to enhance students understanding of the relationship between shapes in 3D and their presentation in 2D. Ideally, cutting out the tiles and matching them up is the best option (followed by gluing into their own books) although some students prefer to highlight instead.

Algebra Expand Factorise Two Pairs of Brackets Noughts and Crosses

Algebra Expand Factorise Two Pairs of Brackets Noughts and Crosses

There are four clickable games in this interactive PowerPoint. They are ideal for playing at the end of each class (allow 10 minutes) as revision for this topic. It is an adaptation of a class game that is played on the whiteboard and works in the same way that Noughts and Crosses works, the object being to get 3 noughts or 3 crosses in a row but the students have to get answers correct in order to gain the nought or cross. This set of games concentrates on expanding and factorising with two pairs of brackets. The first game involves expanding, the second factorising, the third is a mixture and the final one is a little more complicated. Students are very engaged when playing this and it great for consolidating ideas. Divide the class in half (or play one group against another). Random individuals on each side of the class put their hand up and take turns to answer the questions. They never have two turns in a row ie never two Os or two Xs in a row. If an answer is correct then you click on the question and the answer appears - click on the answer for a O, click again for X. It's very easy to play but make sure you have a little play with it before involving your class. You may need to develop your own rules depending on the class. Play it once and you'll know what is meant by this comment. There are four games here. The PowerPoint opens straight away as a slide show (it takes a little longer to open than a normal PowerPoint). Every second slide is a set of answers. There is also a pdf with the answers (and questions) on it - for printing purposes. You should probably print out the answers before you play but you don't really have to if you have the inclination to work out the answers on the spot. There are other Noughts and Crosses games in my shop - more are on the way. Have fun!!

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

Algebra Simplify Expand Solve Factorise Evaluate Instructional Terms Match-Up 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 right 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. There are two bundles of discounted Algebra resources that are worth looking at. You can check these out and other resources at my shop by clicking here.

Number Order of Operations Noughts and Crosses PowerPoint Games

This is a great activity for consolidating ideas. Students really buy into this and lots of learning happens if the opportunities for discussion are taken while answering the questions. There are four clickable games in this PowerPoint. It is an adaptation of a class game that is played on the whiteboard and works in the same way that Noughts and Crosses works, the object being to get 3 noughts or 3 crosses in a row but the students must get answers correct in order to gain the nought or cross. These four games concentrate on the order of operations (BIDMAS, BEDMAS, BODMAS, PEMDAS, BEMA or whatever your term is). Divide the class in half (or play one group against another). Random individuals on each side of the class put their hand up and take turns to answer the questions. One team never has two turns in a row ie they never win two Os or two Xs in a row. If an answer is correct then you click on the question and the answer appears - click on the answer for a O, click again for X. It's very easy to play but make sure you have a little play with it before involving your class. You may need to develop your own rules depending on the class.

Measurement Perimeter Area Metric Noughts and Crosses PowerPoint Games

There are four click-able games in this PowerPoint. They are ideal for playing at the end of each class (allow 10 minutes) as revision for this topic. The games begin with basic skills problems involving perimeter, area and metric conversions. They then progress to more challenging ones that involve connecting ideas, twisting situations around and eventually scaffolding the use of algebra. It is an adaptation of a class game that is played on the whiteboard and works in the same way that Noughts and Crosses works, the object being to get 3 noughts or 3 crosses in a row but the students have to get answers correct in order to gain the nought or cross. Students are very engaged when playing this. It is a great opportunity also for them to explain their answers so it is great way to make opportunities for discussion... Divide the class in half (or play one group against another). Random individuals on each side of the class put their hand up and take turns to answer the questions. They never have two turns in a row ie never two Os or two Xs in a row. If an answer is correct then you click on the question and the answer appears - click on the answer to choose O or X. It's very easy to play but make sure you have a little play with it before involving your class. You may need to develop your own rules depending on the class. Play it once and you'll know what is meant by this comment. For me, when a student answers correctly and before I click for a O or X, I get them to explain their understanding, just briefly, because it's a learning point for others. If they answer incorrectly then I usually say something like "nearly there" or "you're on the right track" (because I want to encourage answering) before going to the other side of the class. You can choose to just expect numerical answers for the measurement problems or you might decide to force the use of the correct units – both are provided. This PowerPoint opens up straight away in slideshow mode. There are four games here. Every second slide is a set of answers which you should probably print out before you play but you don't really have to if you have the inclination to work out the answers on the spot.

Algebra Straight Line Graph Equation m and c Match Up

Algebra Straight Line Graph Equation m and c Match Up

Not only does this cut-out-and-move-around set of tiles give students another opportunity to experience drawing straight lines from gradient intercept method but it also allows them to start off at any of these three places and work towards 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). This activity can be photocopied onto board or laminated or copied onto A3 paper so that it can be used with a group of students. There are 30 tiles in this task - within a group, individual students can contribute a tile and justify why they have chosen it as a match up to another tile.

Trigonometry Non-Right-Angle Sine Rule Cosine Rule Match-Up

This is a revision activity for students learning about the Sine Rule and the Cosine Rule. For each triangle a correct calculation and result must be selected. The problems involve finding both sides and angles. Similar measurements for angles and sides are used in all of the problems so decisions need to be made based on students' knowledge of the rules. This is a good discussion exercise. There are surplus calculations and results. Two sets of answers are included - one based on the original sheet and the other with the tiles re-arranged.

This resource is designed to make students think about the link between different forms of straight line equations and the graphs of straight lines as well as x and y intercepts (written in co-ordinate form). Choose one item from each column. One match up is done as an example. The tiles can be cut out and re-arranged (the better option) or coded in some other way. This resource is three pages long. The task cards are on the front page and the solutions follow (in two different forms). If you have found this resource useful, why not check out my other resources.

Share in Ratio

Share in Ratio

This resource has two versions in the one file – one version using £££££ and the other using $$$$$ This resource is designed for students to match up an instruction eg "share $50 in the ratio 2:3" along with a fraction interpretation (2/5 of £50), the calculated amounts ($20 : $30) and an image (a grid of 50 with 20 shaded in and 30 not shaded in). It fits in nicely with working out "fractions of" and is only one way of handling this concept. It works for many students. I prefer that the tiles are cut out, matched up and glued into their exercise books but some students insist on using colour or numbering, that works too. The task sheet could be copied onto A3 and laminated for future use. If you have found this resource useful, why not check out my other resources. You can visit my shop by clicking here.

Area and Perimeter

Area and Perimeter

I have a 14 year old student in my class who is at a far lower level of ability than the rest of the class and so have had to adapt work for her. She needs to be able to handle materials and to repeat exercises in order to build some memory of it. I thought I'd upload these resources while I am making them for her. This resource is 9 pages long, the last two pages are answers. This little Area and Perimeter exercise involves cutting out squares and putting them back together, counting squares for area and counting the "edge bits". (She always counts the inside lines as well which is why I have put some counting into the examples.) It's all black and white... no cute, fancy graphics but the work is effective :) If you have found this resource useful, why not check out my other resources. You can visit my shop by clicking here.

Algebra Bundle 2

Algebra Bundle 2

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 favorite 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.
