#### Growth and Decay Problems

7 carefully structured worksheets that show students how to perform calculations of repeated percentage changes in growth and decay problems. Using percentage multiplier in real life situations like population growth or credit card interest. Sketch the graphs to see how poulations and amounts change over time. The answers are included. GCSE 9-1 references R16, R9, N6, N7, A14 For more resources like this please visit my shop at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Skillsheets

#### Cuboid Volumes

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.

#### Pythagoras Questions

This resource consists of a power point lesson that can be used to teach or revise the use of Pythagoras’s Theorem and 11 worksheets for consolidation or revision. The theorem is used first in right-angled triangles then in isosceles triangles and for finding the length of the diagonals of rectangles. The worksheets provide a framework for calculating the distance between two points given as co-ordinates, there are grids to help students visualise the method. Other topics covered include areas and perimeters and also the properties of triangles and a triangular prism so that Pythagoras can be applied to solving more complicated problems. DfE reference for GCSE 2017 G20, G15, G16, G11, G6, G1, G4, A18, A8, N7 Please review this resource. For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop

#### Times Tables Practice Booklet

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

#### Distance Time Graphs - 6 worksheets

#### Venn Diagrams & Probability - 7 worksheets

These 7 worksheets are aimed at the new GCSE requirement for students to use and understand Venn diagrams. They approach the topic from different angles using word problems and set notation. The sheets are mainly at foundation level and only include two sets. Students can shade which areas on the diagram represent particular sets or subsets and then progress to sorting data based on two conditions e.g. Do you drink tea, do you drink coffee ? The later sheets also involve probability questions including conditional probabilties e.g. What is the probability that a swimmer also cycles regularly ? There is also a page for sorting numbers as multiples, factors, primes etc. The answers are included. GCSE 9-1 references P6, P9, N4, N2 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop

#### Bearings and Map Scales - 9 worksheets

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.

#### SEN Numeracy - MONEY

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.

#### Using Prime Factors - 13 worksheets

A set of 13 worksheets providing a variety of questions about finding and using prime factors. The questions try to encourage students to understand how prime factors can be used to explore the properties of numbers. Venn diagrams are used to calculate the lowest common multiple and highest common factor and the sheets help students see why the Venn diagram works. They are suitable for revision, reinforcement and extension work on prime factorisation. There is a lot of emphasis on being able to explain what key maths vocabulary means e.g. words like factor, multiple, prime. Most of the sheets have spaces for the answers to be written on. There is one sheet which contains similar questions with no working out space. Answers are provided.

#### Triple Brackets

This collection of five worksheets ( complete with answers and working out ) covers the basics of multiplying out triple brackets then moves on to using the results in different situations. Students are eased into the topic with a little revision of the multiplying out that they will already have mastered then there is plenty of practise with progressively harder examples of multiplying out triple brackets including those with repeated factors. The extension sheets include proofs and finding the difference between two expressions ( a challenge in itself to remember to do x³ +3 x² + 3x + 1 )- ( x³ - 3x² + x - 1 ) carefully ! ). Geometric problems involving cube diagrams to illustrate the expansion of ( a + b )³ will provide useful extension work for the brightest GCSE students.
