Fantastic Maths

Predominantly secondary maths resources. I am building a series of dirt tasks that are designed to close the gap and provide reflection. I also use excel to develop report generators and self generating worksheets.

Differentiated Function Machines Algebra Lessons

(0)
A complete function machine walkthrough from one step input through to two steps with algebra. Can take two lessons, there is a start point just before the algebra versions which can be used to consolidate the previous days learning. Starts with definition of functions abridged from NCETM glossary. Introduces one step functions. forwards, backwards, missing function. 5 differentiated tasks, designed to compliment and extend learners throughout the lesson(s).

iGCSE 9-1 Edexcel, maths revision checklist

(6)
Based on the CGP new revision guide by CGP for the edexcel iGCSE. I have catergorised the topics for higher and foundation into a checklist. Grades are according to CGP revision guide. Any feedback welcome.
Parallel Lines Investigation
Mr_FantMr_Fant

Parallel Lines Investigation

(1)
This uses Geogebra to investigate the rules of parallel lines. The geogebra file has been set up to allow learners to simply check the angles on and off to answer the questions and does not require any technical knowledge. I have included the worksheet that I use as well as a download of the geogebra file and the work sheet has the link to the online geogebra file as well. http://bit.ly/GeoParallel If you prefer an interactive version that allows learners to submit their answers you can use this web page. http://bit.ly/Geogebra_ParallelLines

Simplifying Algebraic Expressions, Sprint Assessment, AFL, Dirt

(0)
This is a low stakes assessment with corresponding dirt activities. I have tended to print these onto coloured paper so that they are clear in learners books. You give the sprint assessment sheet to the class. Collect this in, mark this sheet and code the w3 and ebi according to the feedback powerpoint. Highlight which area they need to work on, print feedback sheets, give them their sprint assessment and feedback sheet back. They copy in their feedback from the powerpoint. They complete their feedforward task, using the worked example to try and improve. I have included full answers on the Marking sheet for all activities as well as all the pre-completed codes. If you want more precise feedback simply add it as another bullet point on the feedback pages.

The aim is for this to be a collection of Christmas platonic solids. So far this collection includes: Tetrahedrons Icosahedrons Octahedrons Still to be added to the collection are cubes and dodecahedron.
Introduction to Pythagoras
Mr_FantMr_Fant

Introduction to Pythagoras

(2)
Starts by using an video clip to demonstrate the process of the area of the two smaller squares being equal to the larger two squares. Then uses cloze procedure to quickly give the formal definition. Teaches the process using square add square root for hypotenuse. Some of the questions where orginally taken from https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-introducing-pythagoras-theorem-lesson-6208261 but have been significantly reworked. On this page however there is also an excellent group work activity that could be used with the lesson.
Area of Circles
Mr_FantMr_Fant

Area of Circles

(1)
This uses interleaved worked examples, so learners can switch between spotting areas in a worked example and attempting the questions solely on their own. Starter Assumes that learners have already completed work on circumference of a circle.
Cubes In Cubes Investigation
Mr_FantMr_Fant

Cubes In Cubes Investigation

(0)
This investigation was designed as a support activity in the lead up to an nrich task. The nrich task would provide an excellent extension activity to this and would follow on in a more abstract manner. The worksheet can be used on its own or with the powerpoint for support. It is designed to develop an understanding and appreciation of the cube numbers involved and then to apply these. The powerpoint has teaching notes throughout in the powerpoint section.

Circumference of circles including reverse Circumference

(0)
Starter is through a linked powerpoint - you will need to change the location for your machine or load up separately. This flashes up the various parts of a circle learners complete with aid of powerpoint. Lesson then goes through finding the circumference of a circle. Either scaffolded or not. Then onto reverse with the option of finding circumference, then reverse with or without scaffolding. Could easily be split into two lessons with one more independent exercise on finding the circumference of a circle.

A collection of number topics to test: Ordering numbers, Rounding, Negative numbers, Decimal Arithmetic, BIDMAS, HCF and LCM, Prime, squares, factors and multiples.
Sample Space Diagrams.
Mr_FantMr_Fant

Sample Space Diagrams.

(1)
A homework or worksheet sheet on sample space diagrams. Addition only but exploring the link between sample space with some thinking questions and forming a hypothesis to the sum of opposite sides on a dice. I have also included a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet has editable elements givings sides to create sample space diagrams for addition and multiplication for sides up to 20. It will also output the probability for chosen amounts. Another tab shows the distribution graphically. This could be sent to the learners for them to explore in a lesson or used to support the homework/worksheet.
Algebraic Expressions 2nd 10QQ - Difficult
Mr_FantMr_Fant

Algebraic Expressions 2nd 10QQ - Difficult

(1)
This is the second 10QQ in the Expressions series. It is ideal as a recap/consolidation or a check of prior learning. Includes a bell task with animated answers to help settle learners into the lesson first. The questions are all on timers. Follows the same format as my revision 10QQ Questions focus around learners use of multiplying expressions as well as collecting to cubes and then addition involving unknowns with powers.

This 10QQ is ideal as a recap or a check of prior learning. Includes a bell task with animated answers to help settle learners into the lesson first. The questions are all on timers. Follows the same format as my revision 10QQ Includes basic simplifying a collection of letters through to collecting like terms with square numbers. At the end there are examples and questions of each type which can be used as a review.

Christmas Icosahedron Nets

(0)
A collection of Icosahedron nets with snowflake patterns and baubles on them. Current background colour is red, if there are any that you would like any different background colours, comment with the background colour and I will add to the collection. Icosahedrons are one of the platonic solids. Also see the octahedron christmas nets.
