All my resources have been created to use with classes I teach. Often I've created resources because, for a particular topic, I haven't been happy with the number/standard of the examples in a textbook. Sometimes I've created worksheets for certain topics (e.g. graph transformations) because I feel my classes will make greater progress on a printed worksheet than trying to work from a textbook. I always aim to produce high-quality resources that improve the students' learning and understanding.

Trapezium rule worksheet to introduce and practise using it (new A level)

(0)
This worksheet makes it easy to introduce and teach the trapezium rule to your classes. The first page has diagrams to illustrate the method and the derivation of the formula is broken down into steps for you to work through with your class. Projecting all this is so much easier than drawing it out by hand. The trapezium rule formula is then stated at the top of page 2, followed by 3 pages of examples of examination-style questions that test the use of the formula and your students’ understanding (is the answer from the trapezium rule an underestimate or overestimate, can they use their answer to deduce an estimate for a related integral, etc). Answers to all the examples are provided.

Factor theorem worksheets

(0)
These resources will give your class plenty of practice of using the factor theorem and the common questions that follow finding a factor of a cubic polynomial. The first resource focuses on showing that (ax+b) is a factor of f(x) and then using it to write f(x) as a product of a linear and quadratic factor. There is an example to work through as a group and then an exercise with 14 questions - answers are provided. The second resource has 2 sections. The first section focuses on factorising cubics fully, either as a product of a linear and quadratic factor, or as a product of 3 linear factors. The second section focuses on solving f(x)=0 and, in later questions, relates the solutions to the graph of f(x). In total there are 26 questions - answers are provided.
Factorising quadratics - introduction and practice

Factorising quadratics - introduction and practice

(0)
I created these resources to try to help my classes understand the process of factorising quadratic expressions of the form x^2+bx+c. The idea behind them is to first get the class to practise finding the 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum, then to start to apply this to factorisation with some scaffolded questions. The first resource gets them to focus on finding the 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum. The 4-page worksheet is broken into four sections - both numbers positive, both numbers negative, one positive and one negative, and then a mixed section. The second resource is a spreadsheet activity where your classes can further practise the skill of finding the 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum. The questions are randomly generated and they get instant feedback on their answers, either telling them it is correct or telling them which requirement (product/sum) has not been met, giving them a chance to try again. It keeps track of how many each student has answered correctly so you can make this into a competitive activity. The final 4-page resource starts to apply the skill of finding 2 numbers that have a specified product and sum to factorising quadratics. Each section starts with a set of questions asking for 2 numbers with a specified product and sum, then asks the student to complete/write down the related factorisation. Each section concludes with some factorising questions with no scaffolding. Section A is both numbers positive, section B is both numbers negative, section C is one number positive and one number negative. Sections D has almost 50 quadratic expressions to factorise - starting with a few of each type and then moving onto mixed questions. Answers to both the worksheets are provided.
Linear inequalities on number lines

Linear inequalities on number lines

(6)
This simple worksheet can be used to introduce/practise using number lines to represent inequalities. The worksheet starts with a reminder about the different inequality symbols and what they mean. There are then a few examples (to do with your students) of representing inequalities on number lines and writing down the inequalities represented by given diagrams. There is a short exercise with 16 of each type of question - answers are included.

Angles in parallel lines worksheet

(29)
This simple worksheet is a good way to introduce/review angles in parallel lines. It begins with diagrams of corresponding, alternate and allied (supplementary) angles, then there are some examples to work through with your class. On the second page there is a short exercise with similar problems for the class to do themselves. Answers to the exercise are included.

MathsWorksheetMasterMathsWorksheetMaster

Types of triangles (isosceles, equilateral, scalene)

(5)
This is a simple worksheet I created for my year 7 class to practise identifying different types of triangles and for them to work things out using their properties. The first page is to work through with your class to complete the notes on each type of triangle and its properties. This includes how sides of equal length may be indicated on a diagram. There is then a 2-page exercise for your class to attempt themselves. The questions include: State the type of triangle from its diagram and given information State the size of and unknown angle in a triangle (does NOT assume knowledge of angle sum being 180) State the type of triangle from some information about some of its sides/angles (no diagram) Considering what type(s) of triangle can contain, for example, an obtuse angle Answers to the exercise are included.
Resources to teach and practise recognising/sketching types of graphs
MathsWorksheetMasterMathsWorksheetMaster

Resources to teach and practise recognising/sketching types of graphs

(0)
The first two resources are 2 different worksheets that can be used to get your class to learn the different types of graph they are expected to be familiar with at GCSE (linear, quadratic, cubic, reciprocal, exponential and square root) and to be able to recognise or sketch them. The first resource gets them to calculate points, plot them and join them up, while the second resource was designed to use Geogebra, but would suit any graphing software. In my experience students need a fair bit of time to complete these so this activity may well fill your entire lesson. The third resource is a worksheet to check their knowledge after completing one of the earlier activities (solutions included).
Graph transformations worksheet (reflections)
MathsWorksheetMasterMathsWorksheetMaster

Graph transformations worksheet (reflections)

(0)
I've always thought that graph transformations is a difficult topic to teach well from a textbook, that's the reason I created these worksheets so my classes could practise sketching the transformations without having to draw axes or try to copy the original curve. This worksheet has examples and an exercise which focuses on reflections but some questions also involve translations. The examples are designed to work through as a class and then the rules for the different reflections can be completed. There are 7 pages of questions for students to complete, including sketching the transformed graph and stating the equation of a transformed graph. All answers are included - I usually project these so that the whole class can check their answers.
Resources for introducing and practising trigonometry on right-angled triangles
MathsWorksheetMasterMathsWorksheetMaster

Resources for introducing and practising trigonometry on right-angled triangles

(0)
The first 3 resources help students to learn to label the sides of the triangle correctly (adjacent, opposite and hypotenuse). There are then 2 worksheets, each with 18 questions to practise finding angles or sides using trigonometry. Answers are included. The short worksheet on angle of elevation/depression explains what the angles represent and has 4 examples for students to complete - answers are included. The multiple choice questions (including some non-calculator) can be used as an assessment after covering this topic. Answers are also included.
Probability problems leading to quadratic equations
MathsWorksheetMasterMathsWorksheetMaster

Probability problems leading to quadratic equations

(0)
These resources deal with problems where 2 or more items are chosen at random, we are given the probability of a particular outcome, and this is used to derive a quadratic equation that then needs to be solved. The first resource can be used to teach the topic. It is in two sections - section A deals with selection with replacement, section B deals with selection without replacement. In each section there are 2 examples to work through with the class, followed by an exercise with more than 10 questions of increasing difficulty for the class to attempt themselves. Fully worked solutions to the examples and exercises are included. The second resource is another set of questions that can be used as a homework or revision - 8 questions that are a mixture of with/without replacement. Also included is a spreadsheet that calculates the probabilities for all outcomes in situations where there are between 5 and 40 items - just in case your class loves this topic and wants more questions!
Resolving forces - worksheet to teach and practise this skill (Mechanics 1)
MathsWorksheetMasterMathsWorksheetMaster

Resolving forces - worksheet to teach and practise this skill (Mechanics 1)

(2)
I found it time-consuming tryingto teach my classes how to resolve forces by drawing diagrams on the board and asking them to copy them down - it seemed to take ages and they didn't get to work through that many examples themselves. So I created this worksheet with ready-made diagrams with all the forces and a blank copy of diagram for students to add on the resolved forces. I no longer dread teaching this skill and my classes get a lot more done in the lesson time. The worksheet starts with an introductory explanation and a worked example. There are then over 20 questions for students to attempt. Fully worked solutions are included.

(0)
This 17-page resource covers all the required knowledge and techniques for hypothesis testing in the AS part of the new A level. It contains detailed notes, examples to work through with your class, and exercises of questions for students to attempt themselves (answers included). The topics covered are: 1. Sampling - different methods of sampling, biased and representative samples 2. Unbiased estimators - estimating the population mean and variance from a sample 3. Setting up a hypothesis test - null and alternative hypotheses 4. Making a conclusion - p-values, significance levels, 1-tail and 2-tail tests 5. Critical regions - finding the critical region for a hypothesis test 6. Significance levels and errors - probability of incorrectly rejecting null hypothesis, nominal vs actual significance level This projectable and printable resource will save you having to write out or create any notes/examples when teaching this topic. It also increases how much you can get through in lessons as students don't have to copy notes/questions and can work directly onto spaces provided for solutions. You could also email/print some or all of this for students who have missed lessons or need additional notes/practice/revision. The second resource is a set of multiple-choice questions that can be used a quick assessment or as part of a revision/refresher lesson. There is also a 6-page resource which contains lots of practice of problems that involve estimating population parameters from sample data (answers are included). Also included is a 2-page assessment that covers the whole topic. Fully worked solutions are included.
