David Morse's Resources

I am regularly uploading resources that I have created during nearly 30 years as a teacher. Most of these are maths, but there are some ICT/Computing and Tutor Time activities on the way. All of the resources that I upload are my own and are not available from third-parties. These resources have been tweaked over time and I have had many happy lessons and shed-loads of happy and successful students. At the end of last year, the TES announced that I was the most downloaded new author of 2017 😀

Expanding a Bracket 1 (Loop Cards)

Expanding a Bracket 1 (Loop Cards)

This is the first of three loop card activities in which students 'multiply out' a single bracket. All the questions on these cards has an integer outside of the bracket. Like the look of these? Click --> https://tes.com/.../30-more-loop-card-topics. -- Further information: In this download there are four sets of similar cards and a student chooses one of the sets and sorts them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has the same questions, but a different sort order 😃 The cards can either be used by individuals, pairs or small groups. My favourite use is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins!) Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.

Fibonacci Sequence (Interactive Whiteboard Game)

Fibonacci Sequence (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 familiarises students with the Fibonacci Sequence, but they 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.
