#### SEN Numeracy - MONEY

(5)
Over 20 worksheets of simple activities involving money that are illustrated and designed for use mainly with adults and teenagers. Choose the right coins to pay for items. Find the total value of 2, 3 or 4 coins or notes. The answers are small numbers in pence or whole numbers of pounds. Find coins totalling 5p or 10p. Add up the total cost of 2 or 3 items in whole numbers of pounds. Find the change from using £5 or £10 notes to buy items. Is there enough money to pay for these things ? Many of the sheets have a colour version to add to the visual appeal. Print onto card then laminate so the pages can be reused with a wipe off marker pen. Please review this resource.

#### Times Tables Practice Booklet

(4)
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 AVAILABLE CHEAPER at https://www.skillsheets.co.uk/cubecart/gcse

#### Simplifying Fractions

(2)

#### Find Fractions of Numbers

(1)
Powerpoint and worksheet showing how to work out a fraction of a small amount, for example 4/5 of 30 using pictures. To develop the idea of finding one fifth by sharing a set of 30 objects into five equal groups. Then multiply to find how many four fifths of the whole set is. The lesson also practises the use of multiplication and division facts for small numbers. GCSE 9-1 references N8, N2 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop

#### Rearranging Formulas

(4)
This resource is made up of a powerpoint lesson and three worksheets with progressively harder examples about rearranging formulas. The aim is to introduce rearranging as an extension to solving equations by ‘doing the same to both sides’ so that students see that they are just extending skills they already possess. The new subject only appears once but the questions involve fractions, use of brackets and square and cube roots. The formulas used are mostly ones encountered elsewhere in maths e.g. volume and area formulas or speed and density. This means the powerpoint is also useful for revising other topics too. There is particular emphasis on the form s = d/t to prepare students for coping with trigonometric formulas. The worksheets include the answers and working out.

#### CIRCLES - Introduction

(2)
This colourful powerpoint uses animations and photographs to introduce or revise the vocabulary needed for working with circles e.g. radius, diameter, circumference, centre, circular, semicircle. There is also an accompanying worksheet. Slides require students to draw circles with given dimensions and perform calculations based on circles fitting inside other shapes and vice versa. The images and animations can also be used to revise area calculations, metric unit conversions, symmetry ( using photographs of car badges for instance ) and locus work. The hardest problem requires a knowledge of Pythagoras to solve it. The slides have notes and suggestions accompanying them. See my other resource ‘Circles - vocabulary’ which follows on from this one to introduce chords, sectors, segments, arcs and tangents.

#### Cuboid Volumes

(2)
A colourful powerpoint and three worksheets to introduce or revise how to calculate the volume of a cuboid or cube using the formula. It begins with examples showing how centimetre cubes fit into larger boxes to explain where the formula comes from. There are practical examples plus extension activities for working out missing dimensions of sides and cubing numbers to find the volume of cubes. Enlarging shapes and converting cubic units are also mentioned. The three worksheets cover three different levels of difficulty and have problems similar to those in the powerpoint. GCSE 9-1 references G16, G14, G12, N2, N6 For more resources like this please visit my shop at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Skillsheets

#### Equivalent Fractions

(1)
This powerpoint and worksheet show students how to create equivalent fractions by scaling up a simple fraction. Uses simple practical applications. Using real life data to see how 9 out of 10 scales up to 18 out of 20 and eventually 90 out of 100 thus also making a connection with percentages as special ‘out of 100’ fractions. Also the splitting of a whole into two fractions e.g. 9 out of 10 people being right-handed means 1 out of 10 people are left-handed. Percentages total 100%.

#### Venn Diagrams - Conditional Probability

(0)
This resource comprises 7 worksheets with answers to give students confidence in dealing with sets. It is suitable for higher level GCSE students and those starting A-level statistics. There are some tough word problems that require resilience and possibly some algebra to solve. Three of the sheets focus more on conditional probabilities - the ‘given that’ type of questions that children often struggle with. The questions are worded in different ways to help learners see how sometimes the probability is being calculated out of members from a subset of the universal set. To provide revision on some basic shape properties there are two sheets about sorting triangles and quadrilaterals according to their properties.
