Bearings and Map Scales - 9 worksheets

(3)
These 9 worksheets provide an introduction to measuring and drawing three figure bearings beginning by looking at the 8 points of the compass. The practical uses of bearings in the real world are emphasised by requiring students to work through word problems with varying levels of support. There is a lot of opportunity for practising measuring and drawing angles up to 360°. Revise angle vocabulary and apply basic angle facts. As an additional feature sone of the examples also require diagrams to be measured so the map scale can be used to find the actual real life distance.

Times Tables Practice Booklet

(1)
This resource can be printed on A4 pages to create an A5 size booklet. The idea is to practise a particular times table e.g. the SIX times table by filling in the number 6 in the box on the first page. This will automatically update all the questions to require multiples of six in the answers. By changing the 6 to a different number you can practise a different times table. Vocabulary used includes 'divisible', 'multiple', 'product' and 'remainder'. Exercises include commutativity, multiplying by decimals, calculating remainders and finding unit fractions of amounts. Useful for older students who need to refresh their times tables. DfE references for GCSE 9-1 N2 N3 N4 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop
