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

A worksheet designed to test and develop pupil's understanding of the different classifications of data. Includes Primary/Secondary, Categorical/Discrete/Continuous and Qualitative/Quantitative. Worksheet differentiated into Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum to allow for different pupils to access different starting points. Bronze starts with multiple choice questions, Silver simple descriptions, Gold asks for an approach to data capture in addition to the type of data, and Platinum simply supplies the type of data required and asks pupils to decide how the data should be captured and what type of data it is. Designed for Foundation tier GCSE pupils, but could be useful for Key Stage 3 or GCSE Statistics pupils.

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.

Based on an image from NCTM, pupils have to work out all of the angles in each polygon in the diagram. A couple of necessary facts are given to start, namely the 20 degree angle, the fact that triangle W is isosceles and that S is a regular hexagon and a couple of right angles. Answers on page 2.

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/

Given 5 recurrence relations, which of them produce straight line graphs? Which don't?

Card matching activity - pupils have to match the graph to the given equation

Modelling real life parabolas such as bridge cables and basketball shots using quadratics in completed the square form.

Using calculator display screens with digits removed, pupils are asked to use inequalities to show the maximum errors in truncating the numbers

A three way matching activity that matches containers to their graphs when filled at constant rate of volume, to a specific point on the graph.

When I was completing my National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership, I found a lack of high-quality examples of things like a Business case or a Risk Management plan to be a real source of concern. There are some online and through TES but they are all charged. I resolved to share my complete NPQSL project for free once I knew it was successful. I am pleased to say I scored 27/28 on the project, and so have shared it complete with assessor feedback so that people can see why I lost the mark and why I scored well. All pupil data and staff codes are anomynised so as to protect identities. Hope it helps!

Calculating mode, median, mean and range of test scores in English and Maths, deciding which average is best to use for comparing the distributions and writing comparisons.

Different contexts to form and solve equations.

A set of cards with "real=life" scenarios, linked to equations, which then have solution cards. Pupils have to link the situation to the equation - for differentiation you can give pupils the cards with the solutions on or not.

A resource designed to test proportional understanding of pie charts.

A three way matching card resource in the Standards Unit style - the first cards have images of two vectors labelled either a and b or a and -b, the second set of cards give the column vectors of a and b to match to the pictures (note b is given even when the picture shows -b for added difficulty) and then the third set has the result of the vector addition/subtraction to match to the previous two. There are 6 additions and 6 subtractions altogether. Use an alternative resource to introduce or revise column vectors or adding and subtracting with vectors at GCSE or A-Level.

A worksheet using new GCSE set notation to show independence (using P(A) x P(B)= P(A^B)) and finding probability of one event or another (using P(AUB) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A^B)).

Matching cards where pupils have to match the two calculations that give the same answer. Values given are 1 to 15 so can be used for pairing pupils in a class of 30.

An exam style question combining tree diagram probability with ratio.

Using angle facts with non-scale diagrams to calculate missing angles in bearings diagrams.
