Decimal Calculations right or wrong?

Decimal Calculations right or wrong?

(3)
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.
Types of Data Worksheet

Types of Data Worksheet

(12)
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.

Brockington College Maths homework booklets

All of the homework booklets I design for my Maths department, free and in one place. Obviously cannot post answers here, but happy for people to email me for them - a DM on twitter with your email address is the best way to get them. Note there are a few images borrowed from different places. Apologies for any infringement and please just let me know and I am happy to credit or change as required.
NPQSL project write up

NPQSL project write up

(52)
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!
Adding and Subtracting with Vectors Matching cards
PayphonePayphone

Adding and Subtracting with Vectors Matching cards

(3)
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.
Lowest Common Multiple

Lowest Common Multiple

(4)
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.
Finding missing lengths from volumes

Finding missing lengths from volumes

(2)
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.
Invariance Activity Sheet

Invariance Activity Sheet

(15)
A RAG (Red, Amber, Green) worksheet around identifying invariant points on different transformations, incorporating a CLOZE activity (fill in the blanks), a matching activity, and a Venn Diagram activity
Defining vectors
PayphonePayphone

Defining vectors

(4)
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.
Errors in Truncation
PayphonePayphone

Errors in Truncation

(5)
Using calculator display screens with digits removed, pupils are asked to use inequalities to show the maximum errors in truncating the numbers
Vector Proof
PayphonePayphone

Vector Proof

(7)
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/
Multiple representations of fractions
PayphonePayphone

Multiple representations of fractions

(1)
A worksheet that shows a bar model, unit area representation, and number line representations of fractions and asks pupils to create groups showing the same fractions. The groups are then given in the image.
Adding and Subtracting Fractions complete worksheet set

Adding and Subtracting Fractions complete worksheet set

(5)
For KS2, KS3 or KS4 maths teachers, this set of worksheets completely develops the concept of adding and subtracting fractions. There are 5 worksheets, broadly covering the following aspects of the concept: Adding and Subtracting Fractions with the same denominators Understanding why fractions with different denominators cannot be added or subtracted without exchanging, and identifying when this is and isn’t required. Adding and Subtracting Fractions where one denominator is a multiple of the other. Adding and Subtracting Fractions where the denominators do not share a common factor. Adding and Subtracting Fractions where the denominators do share a common factor. These can be used one after the other over a series of lessons exploring the concept, or could be spaced across several years, with enough similarity in the structure that pupils should have memories of working on similar tasks triggered.
Venn Diagrams

Venn Diagrams

(2)
A couple of Venn Diagram exam style questions which both bring in areas of maths that are not probability.
Angle Pile Up
PayphonePayphone

Angle Pile Up

(11)
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.
