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.
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.
Venn Diagrams

Venn Diagrams

(2)
A couple of Venn Diagram exam style questions which both bring in areas of maths that are not probability.
Lowest Common Multiple
Payphone

Lowest Common Multiple

(3)
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.
Vector Proof

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/
Forming equations matching cards

Forming equations matching cards

(3)
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.
Defining vectors

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.
Diagonals of quadrilaterals worksheet

Diagonals of quadrilaterals worksheet

(4)
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.

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)
