17 Equations that Changed the World

17 Equations that Changed the World

Having read Ian Stewart's book of the same name, I decided to make A4 sized posters summarising each of the equations. They're nice to have up on the walls when kids say 'What's the point of Algebra?' If you like this resource then please check out my other stuff on here!

Prime Decomposition

Prime Decomposition

Single lesson on Prime Decomposition, including worksheet with some different types of pattern to spot, such as powers of decomposed square numbers. Also a simplified explanation of how banks use Prime numbers. There is a link in the plenary that shows (at least for my classroom PC!) that computers find it hard to break down even numbers with 8+ digits, never mind 200!)

Faces, Edges and Vertices

Isometric Drawing

Isometric Drawing

Pupils learn about plan, front and side elevations and how to draw objects on isometric paper. The worksheet has an investigation into making objects with 5 cubes, as well as some challenging questions on building objects based on their elevations, with as few cubes as possible. Please note that the questions in Section B and the 'impossible shapes to make' are not my own and have been taken from other sheets found online. I have also included a word document of isometric paper for 'emergency' use :) If you liked this resource then please check out my other resources on TES! https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?authorId=2095097

Even More Maths Group Challenges

Even More Maths Group Challenges

Another set of 5 group challenge sheets for pupils to work on in groups over the course of a lesson. The vast majority of the problems are not my own, having been scavenged from many areas over the years! If you like this resource then please check out my other stuff on TES! :) The original set of group challenges from the superb Chris Smith: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/maths-group-challenges-puzzle-sheets-6179530 My first set of 5 based on those: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/more-maths-group-challenges-11011518

Simultaneous Equations Graphically

Simultaneous Equations Graphically

This lesson will show students how plotting two linear equations in x and y allows them to solve simultaneous equations. The powerpoint has a full explanation as the starter and there is a sheet of questions for students to practice. Before doing this task they should have covered algebraic versions of simultaneous equations, as well as linear graph plotting.

Math Statistics 1 - Set of Lesson Powerpoints

Math Statistics 1 - Set of Lesson Powerpoints

In a similar format to my Core 3 lessons - these powerpoints have been made to go with the Edexcel books and cover the whole of the Statistics 1 course (might save you time writing on tables etc!) I've missed out chapter one as it is extremely short and doesn&'t really require anything! If you like this resource then please check out my other stuff on here! :)

The Growth Mindset (Maths)

The Growth Mindset (Maths)

This is a lesson we do near the start of the year with our Year 7 pupils. The idea is to get them thinking as much as possible about how they can improve, rather than whether they are good or not, which is a common problem in Maths. The video explains things very well and there is a short activity on rewording your thoughts. This lesson is most effective when you refer back to it during the year when giving feedback or when you sense the 'fixed mindset' coming back. Just doing the lesson then forgetting about it probably won't be as effective! If you like this resource then please check out my other stuff on TES! :)

Algebraic Areas

Algebraic Areas

Pupils get shown several shapes which are to be represented by letters. They then have to state the areas of some compound shapes algebraically, which are made up of the original ones. If you like this resource then please check out my other stuff on here! :)

Math Further Pure 1 - Set of lesson powerpoints

Math Further Pure 1 - Set of lesson powerpoints

Set of powerpoints covering the whole of Further Pure 1. These have been made to go with Edexcel's textbooks but are adaptable for any course. Also included are worksheets on each chapter made up of old exam questions that you can use as end of unit tests or revision homeworks. If you like this resource then please check out my other stuff on here! (There are a lot of A-level things!) :)\nEDIT 9/6/14: Added Mark Schemes to the worksheets.
