Prime Numbers (Interactive Whiteboard Game)

Prime Numbers (Interactive Whiteboard Game)

This is a fun interactive whiteboard game, created in PowerPoint, with triggered animations. All my students have loved this activity ('Sir, can we play the chain-game?'). It is enjoyable for both high and low ability – it not only reinforces the learning of the prime numbers, but students also need to remember where the numbers are hidden! --- I typically use this activity as a starter and then as a plenary at the end of the lesson. It gets the whole class involved – even when it's not a students turn, they are repeating the numbers in their head and they are desperate to say where the next number is! The way that I play the game: 1. I go through the members of the sequence and ensure that the students are familiar with each of the numbers; 2. When the board is revealed, I give about 15 seconds to ‘peek’ at the uncovered board so that the students can try to learn where the first few numbers are; 3. I then call up the students one-at-a-time to try an uncover as many numbers as they can before they go wrong. NOTES: I encourage the students to call out the number that they are looking for because this reinforces the learning. This activity works very well if you get two students to play against each other – either on the interactive whiteboard or on PCs.

Maths Word Search with something extra (Names of Shapes)

Maths Word Search with something extra (Names of Shapes)

This is more than just finding words on a grid. The words are not given, they have to get them from the diagrams. There is a moderate and a 'difficult' version so the activity is accessible to all and there are many opportunities for extension. The PowerPoint reveals the solutions one word at a time so you can stop and discuss each shape as you go. Try it and you will see what I mean☺. This has been used with classes from Year 6 to Year 11 and they have loved it and had many useful discussions. The activity could be given as a homework as well as used in the classroom. With older students, when I go through the answers I use it as an opportunity to revise the properties of the shapes as well. -- You can give students as much help as you like, but if you leave them to it… they have to think about the names of the shapes; they have to think about the spelling of the names; they have to look for names that are not represented by the diagrams. Because the diagrams have been drawn for the students, there is the opportunity to talk about the use of little squares to indicate right-angles, the use of little lines to indicate equal length sides and the use of arrows to indicate parallel lines. Three additional 2D shapes are hidden in the grid (these are nonagon, decagon and icosagon). The 3D shapes that are hidden are cone, cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid, sphere & tetrahedron. The solutions to the moderate version are contained within the pdf; the PowerPoint contains the solutions to the ‘difficult’ version. --- If you like this activity then look through the other resources that I have uploaded by clicking -->https://tes.com/Morse's-Resources.

Vectors (Workbook)

Vectors (Workbook)

This booklet is very good for teaching Vectors. It completely covers the requirements of GCSE and gives lots of good examples. It starts with column vectors and builds into vector diagrams, finishing with the most typical type of questions that are seen in GCSE exams. I have used this booklet extremely effectively with my students and they gain a better understanding of the topic than the students in parallel classes that work through the text book. --- Note that the booklet is designed to be printed as A4, but I quite often reduce it to A5 and it still does the job. -- Detailed solutions are included.

Pi and the Circumference of Circles (Complete Unit)

A lot of thought has gone into these worksheets, both in terms of presentation and with the selection of questions. They have helped many classes focus on working out the circumference of a circle or perimeter of a part-circular shape. There are also questions that require students to work backwards to find the diameter (or radius) when the circumference (or perimeter) is given. There are plenty of worded problems and an excellent sheet on finding perimeters of more complex shapes with curves. My students always really enjoy working through these sheets. --- The sheets can be used for work in class or as a homework. They are also excellent for one-to-one tuition and interventions.
