Fortune Teller activities, or Cootie Catchers in the US, are a great childhood game remodeled to test mathematical skills. Check out our blog post (link in document) for further information.
In this cootie catcher there are eight questions requiring students to multiply two and three digit numbers, leading to multiplying decimals. The corners of the cootie catcher indicated the differentiation which is to three levels (easy, medium and difficult) and the fourth corner is a "pot luck" section.
This resource comes complete with instructions, ideas for stretch/challenge and two blank versions for challenging pupils to create their own.

This is a Dance Mat Mathematics activity to use along with your ready made dance mats. Check out our blog post (link in download) for tips how to make your class set of dance mats. Once you have a set of dance mats for your classroom you are ready!
This set of dance mat questions requires pupils to find percentages of amounts using non-calculator methods. Students then display their answer by placing their feet in the correct position; left foot for tens and right foot for the units.
Terms of Use
The purchase of this resource is for the use of one teacher only.
Thank you for looking, I hope the NumberLoving resources meet the needs of colleagues. Please get in touch via @numberloving or numberloving@outlook.com

Heat Maps can be displayed or printed for each pair of pupils. Each heat map increases in difficulty indicated by the hotness, the redder/hotter the more difficult the question. Pupils choose a cell to start at and perform the given operation with the corresponding element of the question from the x and y axis.
This heat map requires pupils to add two composite functions together and forms part of the Heat Map Bundle for topics on Functions and Coordinates.

Prompt sheets can be used at the start of a new topic to establish pupils’ prior knowledge, alternatively they are an excellent way of starting revision.
Pupils use the given vocabulary as a prompt to start to annotate the pictures. In this prompt sheet pupils are labelling 2D shapes with their properties such as parallel sides.
Take a look at the Prompt Sheet Bundle in the NumberLoving TES shop

Pupils choose a cell to start at and perform the given operation with the corresponding element of the question from the x and y axis.
This heat map requires pupils to multiply the brackets that correspond to their chosen cell to form a quadratic expression, concentrating on quadratics of the form (x+a)(x+b), with the final column requiring (ax+b)(cx+d). This resource is also available in the Heat Map bundle, check it out!

The Learning Grid activity helps to link in literacy by encouraging pupils to communicate and articulate their knowledge by connecting two different elements of a topic. Each learning grid comes complete with instructions on how to use and ideas for support and stretch.
This learning grid requires pupils to either state the given properties of the 3D shape connecting the two coordinate grids, or to define the property of 3D shapes. This resource is available as part of the Learning Grid Bundle, check it out.

Each Heat Map consists of coloured cells which represent the difficulty; the hotter the cell the more difficult the question. Pupils choose a cell and perform the required calculation with the corresponding element of that cell.
This bundle has nine resources, each with explanations and ideas for support and challenge.

Product of Primes, HCF and LCM (Fan and Pick Question Cards)
Updated April 2018*- This resources has new content added. It now includes one set in the traditional fan and pick style (i.e. answer on the question cards) and a second version of the question cards with the answer removed. Therefore giving more flexibility for how you might use them with your students.
Fan and Pick promotes cooperative learning, creating situations for discussions around finding the correct answer and not just what the answer is.
They can be used as a plenary activity to determine what learning has taken place, used to determine pupils prior knowledge to a topic and of course great for revision.
This Fan and Pick has a set of 12 question cards, differentiated by hotness and covers expressing a number as a product of primes, finding the HCF or LCM of two numbers.
If you’ve enjoyed this resource you should check out the Fan and Pick Bundle! Please note this resource is also available as part of that bundle.
