Exam Formulae Collective Memory

Exam Formulae Collective Memory

A collective memory resource designed to help pupils remember the required formulae for the GCSE Mathematics 9-1 exam (or at least some of them). The first slide is designed for Foundation pupils, the second for Higher (as it includes Sine and Cosine Rule).

Fraction Wall Problems

Fraction Wall Problems

Using an image courtesy of Mr Cooke Maths blog (http://ff6w.primaryblogger.co.uk/mr-cooke-maths-we-16th-january-fraction-action/) a resource designed to encourage pupils to think about fraction equivalence and multiplication/division. Shared at the LaSalle Education Complete Mathematics Conference #Mathsconf9 in Bristol for the speed-date/tweet up (https://completemaths.com/events).

Vector Proof

Vector Proof

Linked to the defining vectors activity, using the vectors defined in the image to prove standard results like ratios of line segments, whether points lie on straight lines, etc. For extra challenge take out the image with the pre-defined vectors and add the image from my vector definition activity so that pupils have to define the vectors before using them. Answers can be found on the prezi at link https://prezi.com/lenmenrpi1li/vector-proof/

Lowest Common Multiple

Lowest Common Multiple

Use of Venn Diagrams to find LCM, with three grades of challenge (RAG) moving from given multiples, to identifying multiples of 2 numbers, to identifying multiples of 3 numbers - inspired by Craig Barton's love of Venn Diagrams.

Decimal Calculations right or wrong?

Decimal Calculations right or wrong?

A series of cards with related decimal calculations, some correct and some incorrect. Pupils have to sort out the correct ones from the incorrect ones. You can give the pupils a correct starter calculation to base off or not as required to support pupils.

Defining vectors

Defining vectors

Adapted from an image in Back to Back activities, 2 vectors are defined as a and b and the activity asks how many further vectors can be defined in terms of a and b. The image gives all of the other lines defined as vectors in terms of a and b.

Half, more then half, less than half

Half, more then half, less than half

A worksheet with geometrical views of fractions. Can pupils say whether the given fraction is more than, less than or equal to one half? Can the justify why, preferably without finding the actual fraction shaded? (Then, for fun, they can actually find the fraction shaded!)

Vector Hunt

Vector Hunt

Given a vector picture, can you identify the vectors that either match, or are multiples of, the given vector a? A nice alternative vector introduction, or way of introducing the ideas of scalar multiple (including negative of a vector)

Venn Diagrams

Venn Diagrams

A couple of Venn Diagram exam style questions which both bring in areas of maths that are not probability.

Finding missing lengths from volumes

Finding missing lengths from volumes

Given the volumes of different prisms on the sheet, can you find the missing length; some neat ones in here like given one of the parallel sides of the trapezium is twice the other, find them both.

Diagonals of quadrilaterals worksheet

Diagonals of quadrilaterals worksheet

A tick grid for the properties of the diagonals of quadrilaterals, with a richer follow on activity where pupils have to try and write sentences which fit a given selection of quadrilaterals.
