Forming and Solving Equations from Shapes and Angle Problems RELAY

Forming and Solving Equations from Shapes and Angle Problems RELAY

An activity aimed at foundation GCSE students or higher level KS3 students. Can be organised as an activity in many ways but designed to be run as a 'relay' activity where students may work collaboratively or in competition with each other. There are two sets of questions, an easier A set and a harder B set. Each set is 6 questions. Solutions are awarded marks based on difficulty and so can be used as a relay competition where groups are challenged to score the most points in a given time. Questions are on invividual A4 sheets and can be printed and combined to suit the user.

BIDMAS grid puzzle - SELF MARKING

BIDMAS grid puzzle - SELF MARKING

Resource on order of operations aimed at upper KS2, KS3 or low ability KS4 students. Questions are scaffolded in difficulty, progressing to missing number problems. Students must work out the answer to each question and shade it in the number grid. There is just one number to shade for each question. Once all questions are complete the pattern will be revealed in the grid. Good news -- **self marking activity** ideal for homework or consolidation. A solution page is provided for ease.

Speed Distance Time - FACT MAP activity

Speed Distance Time - FACT MAP activity

Activity aimed at KS3/4 pupils studying problems related to speed/distance/time and travel graphs. Questions centre around a single statement in the middle of the page, with various 'follow up' questions around the edge. Questions are coloured by difficulty and activity includes opportunity for more able students to write their own problems based around the original statement. Please note that questions are not linked to each other - each question presents a different scenario which could arise from the central statement. Solutions provided. Suggested introduction: Provide a similar statement on the board and ask pupils 'what might they ask about the journey?'

Solving Equations Sum Pyramid activity (SELF MARKING)

Solving Equations Sum Pyramid activity (SELF MARKING)

Resource aimed at lower ability KS3 students or high ability KS2 students studying how to solve '2-step' equations. The first page of the resource is a student worksheet designed for pupils to stick in correct answers. The second page contains 2 versions of the card set (for ease of photocopying). Pupils should cut out the cards with equations on and firstly stick the top line of equations to the top line of the pyramid on their worksheet (match correct letters to the ones on the top corner of the pyramid). The activity aims to build a correct "number pyramid" where the answer to each question should be the sum of the two above it. Once the first line of equations are solved, pupils can add together the answers to work out what answers they are looking to stick on the next row. The can continue in this manner until they have found which equation should fit on the bottom of the pyramid.

Ratio worded problems - FACT MAP activity

Ratio worded problems - FACT MAP activity

Resource aimed at upper KS2, KS3 or KS4 pupils studying ratio. Questions all stem from a single statement in the centre of the page. The questions are not linked to each other but they present different questions that could be asked from the single statement. Questions are colour coded in order of difficulty, with the most challenging questions asking students to link in other areas of the curriculum such as percentage profit and area. Questions are designed to offer 'real world' problems and could be used as a consolidation activity at the end of a unit on ratio. Extension problems are provided. Suggested introduction: Provide a similar statement on the board and ask students to suggest what questions could be asked. Alternatively, provide a few example questions and ask what fact might link the problems.

Algebraic Substitution Grid Puzzle - SELF MARKING

Algebraic Substitution Grid Puzzle - SELF MARKING

Activity aimed at KS3/4 pupils studying substitution into algebraic expressions. This is a **self-marking** activity, where students must colour the answer to each problem in a shade to match the colour of the question. At the end of the activity the students will have shaded a geometric pattern, which can be marked easily by inspection. Solution sheet is provided for completeness.

Algebraic Multiplication Tree Activity

Algebraic Multiplication Tree Activity

Resource aimed for upper KS3 or GCSE level students on multiplying terms in algebra. Students have to pick terms from the tree ('apples') and multiply them together to create the target amounts. Extension problems included for more able students.

RATIO Shades of Grey Card Sort Activity

RATIO Shades of Grey Card Sort Activity

A resource similar to others available where students are asked to order cards from those that would make a lighter shade of grey to those that would make a darker shade of grey. Ideal as an introduction to or recap of ratios, since it encourages understanding that ratios can contain different numbers but represent the same proportion as each other. Full instructions for how this can be used as an activity are provided.
