Catchphrase quizzing bundle.
This bundle includes three catchphrase quizzes with answers.
1) Add and Subtract Negative Numbers
2) Multiply and Divide Negative Numbers
3) Mixed Add, Subtract, Multiply and Divide Negative Numbers
I sometimes change the image below to a picture of famous person to add more variation to the game.
Students either as individuals or small groups answers questions to reveal part of an image. The more questions the students answer the more of the image is revealed. The winner is the person who manages to say what they see and guess the catch phrase.
I’ve included the answer to each catchphrase in the notes box, as well as answers on the second page.

Catchphrase quizzing activity on rounding to decimal places.
Answers and catchphrase are provided.

I've designed this resource to allow students to explore basic connections of number and the reasoning why. For example is 3+2-1 the same as 2-1+3. This then leads into an explanation of what BIDMAS is and includes model examples which go through the process step by step.
Afterwards there is a quick true or false activity with the answers, you could do this as a mini whiteboard activity, class discussion, group task or silent focus. I personally use this with whiteboards and hammer out the misconceptions. It is a good tool in getting the students to practise providing explinations and reasons verbally for their answers.
The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 4 separate sections a skill 1 & 2 and a stretch 1 & 2. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. (Answers are provided)
Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation including answers.
I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of handling identities and equating coefficients.
It starts with 6 quick fire questions on expanding and simplifying single and double brackets and one complete the square question.
Then the definitions of an equation and identity are there for discussion. This leads to students having to identify the equations and identities.
Following this is two examples of show that this is an identity. One single bracket and one double bracket.
Then there is an interactive pairing activity where students need to come to the board and select two cards. If they could be an identity leave them turned over, if not turn them back over and start again. (Snap)
Following this is two examples of equating coefficients. One single bracket and one double bracket.
Leading into a tick or trash activity where misconceptions can be discussed.
The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use.
Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with 2 exam style questions including answers.

I've been struggling to find fun ways to quiz the students on the formulae they need to memorise for the new GCSE Maths exams so I have made a catchphrase quiz out of the formulae. My students really enjoy this at the start of a lesson. I sometimes change the image below to a picture of famous person to add more variation to the game.
Students either as individuals or small groups answers questions to reveal part of an image. The more questions the students answer the more of the image is revealed. The winner is the person who manages to say what they see and guess the catch phrase.
I’ve included the answer to each catch phrase in the notes box, as well as answers on the second page.
The maths formulae ones can work either way with a catchphrase underneath each grid.

I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of iteration and iterative processes.
It begins with a quick stop clock starter to review skills they should already know and will need to use throughout the lesson.
The it leads to a discussion about what iteration is using real life concepts such as painting a door. This leads into a slide and discussion on the maths definition of what iterative processes are.
Non calculator section
Students shouldn't use a calculator/ ans button for these first questions so they can grasp the concept of iteration by physically doing substituting the previous answer in.
1) There are two basic iteration examples, fully animated, for students to follow through with yourself. 2) This the leads to 3 questions for the students to try for them selves.
Calculator section
Finding x1, x2 and x3
1) Explanation of where to find the ans button on your calculator and how it works. It's useful to get the students to do it on their calculators along with the PowerPoint.
2) 2 examples of iterative process questions that require a calculate.
3) 5 Multiple Choice Questions.
Estimating a solution
1) 2 fully animated examples on estimating a solution to a required number of decimal places.
2) 2 questions for the students to try themselves.
Rearranging to make an iterative formula
1) 3 different example rearrangements of the same formula
2) Odd one out. Students need to spot which iterative formula isn't a rearrangement of the equation.
The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use, however these questions are quite wordy and it may be worth while to print the slide off as a worksheet.
Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with exam style questions including answers.
I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

I've designed this resource to allow students to discover through the trigonometric ratio's the exact trig values they now need to remember for their GCSE examinations.
Afterwards there is a quick memory technique I use with students to help them quickly find the trig value in an exam situation.
The resource then in includes a catch phrase activity where the students have to state either the trig values, ratios or key facts about the trig ratios. The answers are on the slide that follow it.
Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation including answers.
I hope you find this resource as useful as my current year 10 and 11 students have.

I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of expanding single brackets.
It begins with a stopwatch starter where students need to to answer three simplifying algebraic expression questions.
This then leads to discussion over methods you could use to answer numerical questions such as 3(5-2).
I'm very much aware that there are 3 different common approaches to teaching expanding brackets. I've included 4 examples for each of the following methods (12 different examples). I know the method I teach sometimes varies on the class I am teaching.
1) Algebra tiles - Explanation slides of how to multiply with algebra tiles, 4 progressively harder expanding bracket examples with algebra tiles and 4 mini whiteboard questions for the students to do themselves with algebra tile solutions.
2) Grid Method - 4 progressively harder examples of expanding brackets using the grid method, 5 mini white board questions
3)Claw/Arrow method - 4 progressively harder examples of expanding brackets using claw method and the same 5 mini white board questions as the grid method.
This then leads to three tick or trash questions, where the students need to select which person has answered the question correctly and discuss what the misconception of the other person was.
There is then a matching quiz interactive activity where students can come to the board, selected two cards and see if they are a pair. If they are leave them turned over, if not click the cards again to turn them back over.
