Notes - Shape & Space - 2. Polygons.Powerpoint.

(14)
A few years ago I wrote a set of notes for pupils and put them on my website. The notes were supposed to be written in a pupil-friendly way, and different to notes students might find in textbooks or elsewhere on the internet. I have converted the notes to PowerPoint slides so you can download them, adapt them if needed, use them in revision lessons or perhaps give your students a set to take home with them to help them prepare for exams. The chances are there will be a few mistakes here and there, so if you spot any please email me & I will correct them. Hope they are of use!
Tarsia - Rules of Indices

Tarsia - Rules of Indices

(9)
A Tarsia Jigsaw activity on The Rules of Indices using numbers only. These type of activities can be used to consolidate understanding of a given topic, and foster positive group work and co-operative learning. By making adjustments such as removing answers and making deliberate mistakes, they can be made even more challenging and engaging to the students.

If you have any comments, or spot any (non deliberate!) mistakes, please share them below.
Tarsia Convince Me: Surds
MrBartonMathsMrBartonMaths

Tarsia Convince Me: Surds

(7)
This is a “Tarsia: Convince Me” activity on operations with surds including rationalising the denominator and simplifying. Unlike standard Tarsia activities, here you only need to print out the solution (included on the PowerPoint), and students must: 1. Find (at least) 5 incorrectly matched up elements, convince you that each one is incorrect explaining the mistake that has been made, and then decide what the answer should have been 2. Replace the ? with the correct answer 3. Come up with a question to replace ?? that could give the answer. A selection of these questions can then be given to other students to use as a rich, challenging, pupil-created homework.

Arithmagon 8 - Midpoints

(6)
This a rich, Arithmagon activity on Midpoints between co-ordinates. I love Arithmagons as they allow consolidation of key topics when going Forwards, and then opportunities for extension, creativity and discovery when working Backwards. They are also really easy to modify to suit the particular needs of your class. For all the Arithmagon activities in this series, together with teaching notes and extra information, please visit http://www.mrbartonmaths.com/arithmagon.htm
