This is a collection of 272 tarsia puzzles that are already available on the internet from a number of sources. What have I done? I deleted any duplicates and sorted them by topic so it is easier to check what is available and choose an appropriate puzzle. Any errors encountered have been corrected but I haven’t checked all the puzzles so please check through before printing.

Any pupils wanting to learn their times tableswill need lots of grids so they can practice regularly. This excel spreadsheet will provide an infinite number of grids, simply pressing F9 the grids will be refreshed. I have set up pages with the following grids (1 to 10) x (1 to 10), (2,4 & 8) x (1to 10) and (2, 3, 4, 5 & 8) x (1 to 10) but the spreadsheet is fully editable. Included is a word document so you can hopefully have a preview. Always charge your school for any downloaded rsources.
This starter is a MS Excel spreadsheet which has been designed to provide you with a simple test to give your pupils at the start of a lesson, freeing you up to do registers, get pupils settled etc. It will randomly select 20 words for your pupils to translate from a predetermined list of your choice. This file has been preloaded with over 2000 words and phrases, split into sheets as follows; Environment (96), Jobs (168), Health (280), Holidays (246), Places (254), Free time & Media (346), Relationships (308), School & Careers (196), Core (163), Food & Drink (130), Lifestyle (348), Interests (98) Clicking macro enabled buttons allows; • the translations to be set from German to English or from English to German, • answers to be revealed individually or as a group • all questions to be reset. Pressing F9 will refresh the file and bring another randomly generated set of questions. You can control the words to provide bespoke lists for each of your classes. Each list of words can be added to with words of your choice and each word in the list can be switched off using a drop down button. This will not remove the word from the file but prevents the word from being selected. Save a copy of the file for each of your classes and add words by switching them on as your class increases its vocabulary. If you download it, please return and review the product and as always, pass the cost onto your school.
I took the idea of race round the clock multiplication sheets from Matt7, wrote a spreadsheet that randomised the multipliers and extended to idea to a few other scenarios. It's fairly easy to adapt, if anyone is unable to do so but wants a particular feature let me know in the comments section and I'll try update. Enjoy.

Maths homework booklet aimed at students working below grade 4. The booklet contains 15 questions per homework consisting of basic arithmetic for students working at grades 1 & 2 and standard exam questions, the ones that ask straight forwards maths questions. An exemplar homework is included so the students can refer back and each week the questions are repeated with different numbers. A table at the back allows students to track their progress and identify areas of weakness. Intended to be printed as an A4 booklet
Following the review of the original starter spreadsheet as Premium Resource of the week I was particularly taken by the line " If answers were automatically generated, I would pay triple figures" , so rewriting the way some of the questions are generated has allowed me to add the answers for all questions. To ensure the pupils can't see them they are hidden using macros so please ensure they are enabled, the buttons are clearly available at the top. The resource is a spreadsheet that will produce starter questions on topics of your choice. It will remove the need for you to think about the questions you are going to set, simply keep a copy of the spreadsheet for each class and switch on topics as you progress through the scheme of work. This spreadsheet is very easy to set up and gives you ten minutes at the start of a lesson to get the class settled and to get them revising the topics they have previously covered. If you download it please review the spreadsheet and always pass on the cost of any resources to your school. The review can be found here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/blog/tes-maths-rotw-gcse-starter-spreadsheet Thanks, Mathsshed
This is a zip file containing one full years worth of homeworks comprised of 48 individual pdf’s. They have been written to provide a suitable level of questions for Year 11 students who are working towards grade 5. It can also be given to any groups working at a similar level. For each homework 20 questions are drawn randomly from a bank of 70 question types and in turn each question type is randomly generated so this is a full set of non-repeating homeworks. At the end of the sheet there are always an additional two fraction arithmetic questions. The result is fully interleaved questioning of the core skills your students need to succeed at GCSE Foundation maths. Before buying please make sure you download the samples.
Battleships has often been used in the classroom but has led to pupils being confused between coordinates and grid references, this leads to problems when numbering axes (boxes rather than lines) Battleshapes seeks to address this by providing ships represented by a variety of 2D shapes. HMS Square, USS Rhombus, HMS Kite etc Pupils sink ships by hitting the corners of each shape. The resource is a Powerpoint file and is fully editable. To add some differentiation I have included sheets where the grid is numbered, partially numbered and not numbered. An additional sheet is included for those who prefer to talk about vertices rather than corners. As with any resource, please make sure your school pays for the resource and not you.
I have taken each of the 36 questions from the sample paper issued by the Standards and Testing agency and created a random generator to easily provide a set of questions that can be given to pupils to practise for this test. The first page has all 36 questions, pressing F9 will bring up the same questions but with different numbers. All the answers to these questions are on the second page. There are another 36 pages on the worksheet, each providing 36 random questions of a single type.
This spreadsheet will randomly generate questions and answers each time you press the F9 button. All questions are fully selectable to ensure you have the question type you want to put to your students. It is perfect for interleaving as it allows you to give your students questions on a given topic for as long as they need them. By selecting which topics you are going to give them and when you can make use of the spacing effect that regular revisiting of topics provides. Using this spreadsheet as a starter every lesson also saves you a lot of time in preparation. The spreadsheet is designed to support classes following OUP Core Maths for AQA and covers topics found in Chapter 1; Surds Quadratic functions and their graphs Quadratic factors Completing the square The quadratic formula and discriminant Methods of solving quadratics Quadratic inequalities Simultaneous equations

This Level 5 homework kit is the latest in a series of spreadsheets that allow you to provide excellent homework practice with minimal effort on your part. As with my other homework kits, this is a spreadsheet that refreshes the questions every time the F9 button is pressed, the result is the same questions but different. Through regular practice of core skills this is an ideal homework for all pupil's and will support your school's mastery programme. Unlike the other homework kits I haven’t provided a pre prepared booklet. The reason for this is very simple, there are so many level 5 topics that the homeworks would be too long. Instead I have constructed the spreadsheet to allow you to switch questions off and on. This is very simple through the use of a YES/NO drop down box and a filter at the top of the sheet allowing you to switch off the topics you don’t want them to cover. The question numbers will automatically change for you. A number of sheets are included allowing you to have different homeworks for different groups.

This is an Excel spreadsheet that replicates the questions from the 2016 KS2 Mathematics Paper 2 reasoning sampler. Each page has a number of questions providing valuable practice to your pupils in preparation for their tests, pressing F9 refreshes the questions and changes the numbers so you can give them the questions again. Of 20 questions on the paper I have been able to replicate 15 and of these 14 come with answers. Please make sure that you pass on any costs to your school.
Some time ago I produced a homework booklet for GCSE year 1, it was fairly well received with favourable reviews and over 1300 downloads. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-homework-booklet-11071682 This is a similar booklet aimed at level 3 pupils, each set has the following questions; a times table grid (2 to 9) x (1 to 10) four addition four subtraction four multiplication four division four fractions of a quantity (unitary fractions) four fractions of a quantity (non-unitary fractions) five rounding to the nearest ten Five rounding to the nearest hundred Three sequences. Although labelled as homework, these files can be used in a number of ways. Files included; Excel random question generator Word file that can be printed as a booklet for pupils to work from As above with answers PDF copies of the two word files.

This spreadsheet provides Bar Model questions on addition and subtraction. Through the use of MS Excel's macro functions, each time you press F9 randomly generated numbers create a unique set of questions. The main feature of this spreadsheet is that it allows you to modify the range of questions. All questions are set for a maximum sum of 100 but if you need a question sheet for pupils with a maximum sum of 30, simply change the values in two cells and print it out. Here is an example of the worksheets produced by this spreadsheet https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/bar-models-worksheet-maths-mastery-practise-11375057
Continuing my homework kit series, booklet is aimed at providing level 4 practise for pupils, each set has questions on the following topics; Subtraction Addition Multiplication Division Fraction of a quantity - unitary fractions Fraction of a quantity - non unitary fractions Equivalent Fractions Adding/Subtracting Fractions Rounding to nearest 10 Rounding to nearest 100 Rounding to nearest 1000 Numbers: Letters to digits Ordering negative numbers (1) Ordering negative numbers (2) Pence to pounds Pounds to pence One step algebra (1) One step algebra (2) Sequences Ordering Decimals In each of the questions types above there are three or four questions, although some pupils will do all the questions regardless of how long it takes.the simplest way to get pupils using this booklet effectively is to give them a timed homework of say 20minutes. Then use competition with others and over time against themselves. Can they do more questions this week than they did last week? Although labelled as homework, these files can be used in a number of ways. Files included; Excel random question generator Word file that can be printed as a booklet for pupils to work from As above with answers PDF copies of the two word files.

This spreadsheet has been designed for use in a couple of ways. 1. as a learning resource for pupils to use in their own time 2. as a lesson to be displayed on the board First are sheets that show how to find a sequence and specific terms in a sequence from the nth term. This is followed by a sheet of 24 questions. Next is a sheet showing how the nth term is found from a sequence and a sheet of 24 questions follows that. Finally there is a sheet describing the nth term of descending sequences and a sheet of 16 questions for practice. All lesson sheets have randomly generated examples that can be refreshed until the learners have a firm grasp of what is required. All practice sheets have randomly generated questions and macro buttons that allow answers to be revealed as a whole or individually. Make sure you enable macros and pass on any costs to your school. Thanks.
This is a spreadsheet that will deliver questions for you to use as a starter exercise, something for you to project on the board before your students enter the room and they can get on with the questions whilst you do the register etc. It’s a great resource for interleaving How it works: Key questions from the three topics are listed on separate sheets, you can add to these if you want but they currently stand at Germany (74), US (72) and Russia (53). Each time the screen is refreshed by pressing the F9 button, Excel will return a random selection of questions. Choosing five gives two billion possible combinations, you can select up to ten questions which gives significantly more. Obviously I’m not a history teacher, this was produced as a request from a colleague who had seen what I do in maths. This spreadsheet can be added to or modified, if someone is interested but uses a different specification, send me a bank of questions and I can modify this to suit your requirements.
