#### Learn to Tell the Time - Dyslexia Dyscalculia Friendly

The Aramazu method of learning to tell the time on an analogue clock was originally developed for primary school children. This collection of resources adapts the Aramazu approach to appeal to secondary school students. I have used this approach successfully to teach 16-18 year old students with dyslexia and dyscalculia how to tell the time.
The resources included in this package are:
A Student Progress Tracker
I glue this in my student’s books. The tracker shows 8 levels that the students have to move up in order to reach the target. Students start at the bottom (level 1) and once each level is completed, we highlight it. The goal is to reach level 8. The progress path is shown both in words and pictures so all my students can access the information.
An Illustrated Set of Notes
These can be used as a interactive teaching resource or as handouts for students.
Flash Cards / Match Pairs Cards
The Aramazu clocks can be used as flash cards or together with the word cards as a matching activity.
A Giant Aramazu Wall Clock
Perfect for kinaesthetic and visual learners, a printable giant Aramazu wall clock for students to practise showing the time on.
I’ve also included a few worksheets and posters to support learning.
The end goal is for students to be able to tell the time to 5 minute intervals on an Aramazu clock. Once students have mastered this, you can then use the ‘Goodbye Aramazu’ resource to support students with the transition to reading a ‘typical’ analogue clock:

#### Factors, Multiples, Prime, Cube and Square Numbers - Colour by Number Activity

This is a fun way for students to revise numbers using a famous artist (Miro) colouring sheet.
Number topics included:
- prime numbers

The uncovered sign will be for the answer.

#### CSI Algebra - Writing and Using Formulae

Here’s a real life CSI application of algebra for your students…
Students have to solve a murder investigation using formulae (writing and substituting). They have to gather evidence at three locations: the crime scene, mortuary and forensic laboratory. Once they have collected their evidence, they examine a suspect list to identify the murderer.
Crime scene – The suspect has left muddy boot prints at the crime scene. Students have to measure the boot print and step length to determine the suspect’s height.
Mortuary – Students have to determine the time of death using body temperature.
Forensic Laboratory – The victim died from chronic arsenic poisoning. Students have to determine for how long the victim was poisoned for.
Answers included.

#### Learn to Tell the Time - Goodbye Aramazu

This resource is designed for students who can read time on an Aramazu clock and must now apply their knowledge to read a typical analogue clock.
The transition is carefully scaffolded and involves students progressing through 4 stages. At each stage, a visual feature of the Aramazu clock is removed until the clock looks like a typical analogue clock. I have used this approach successfully on my students - 16 year olds with dyslexia and dyscalculia.
Included in this package are:
Worksheets
One for each stage.
Activity cards
These can be used as flash cards or with the word cards in a matching activity. There is a set for each stage.
A Student Progress Tracker
This can be glued in student books. Students can highlight each stage as they progress.

Once students are confident with the terminology, we create our own courtroom in the classroom and role-play the stages of hypothesis testing with students acting as the jury, prosecution, judge and defence.
Contents of the workbook
1. A summary of the 5 stages of hypothesis testing
2. A detailed analogy to a criminal trial
3. One worked example
4. Space for students to complete their own examples.
5. Worksheets on:
a. the null and alternative hypothesis
b. type I and type II errors
c. checking assumptions
d. sampling distributions
e. the normal distribution
f. the t-distribution
g. interpreting p-values
Answers for worksheets provided in separate document. The preview file shows a selection of pages from the workbook.
