#### Maths KS3: Numeracy Time resources for year 7

This is a unit one (of 6) numeracy sessions to be delivered to year 7 and 8 pupils during form time. The Power points aim to make it easy for even non specialists to deliver, ensuring pupils are engaging in numeracy activities on a weekly basis.

#### Simultaneous Equations Worksheets Collect a Joke

(9)
Pupils will practise solving simultaneous equations. This free resource reinvents the classic worksheet activity, although the joke is outdated. Watch out for an updated version soon! Pupils complete either the yellow (solving simple simultaneous equations with straight forward elimination) or the green route (multiplication or substitution). Reduce onto one A4 sheet. Once pupils have completed their worksheet they can then move around the room collecting the correct word with the answers thus collecting the joke. Pupils are motivated by the prospect of collecting the joke first. The worse the joke the better! All our resources come complete with instructions, solutions where appropriate and ideas to stretch and support pupils. Check out www.numberloving.co.uk for more ideas and resources like this.

(4)
Rationalising the Denominator (Tick or Trash) Test your students’ ability to spot mistakes and develop their understanding with this activity. Pupils are given two different answers to a question and have to determine which is correct. They then have to explain what misconception has led to the incorrect answer. This resource includes increasingly difficult questions on rationalising the denominator. Questions start with rationalising the denominator where the denominator is its lowest, to denominators that can be simplified. Later questions involve rationalising the denominators by using the conjugate pair. Full instructions, ideas extension, and a solution are provided in the resource - what more could you need?
