SIMILAR SHAPES : Length, Area, Volume Ratios

SIMILAR SHAPES : Length, Area, Volume Ratios

(3)
These 5 worksheets help to explain the effects of enlargement on the area and volume of a shape by looking at the length, area and volume ratios. This is an important topic that is often found difficult by many students. There are three basic worksheets introducing the idea then two pages of harder word problems for extension work. The first worksheet lets students calculate the surface area and volume of simple 1cm and 2cm cubes so they can create the ratios themselves and see how the area and volume ratios derive from the length ratio. Sheets 2 and 3 require students to use the relationships between the ratios to calculate missing areas and volumes. The two word problem sheets are similar to GCSE 9-1 exam questions.

Equations with Brackets
SkillsheetsSkillsheets

Equations with Brackets

(1)
9 worksheets containing linear equations where brackets need to be multiplied out as the first step. The sheets get progressively harder for extra practice or revision. The unknown appears on both sides of the equations. For the first worksheets the answers are all positive whole numbers but later equations have negative or fractional solutions. Students are asked to check their answers for the first worksheets by putting the solution into both sides of the original equation to make sure it works out the same. The answers and working out are included. GCSE from 2017 references A17, A4, A3, A2, A1, N3, N2 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop
Improper Fractions

Improper Fractions

(2)
This resource comprises a powerpoint and accompanying worksheet showing how to convert top heavy ( improper ) fractions into mixed numbers. Diagrams and photographs of simple practical situations are used to show first how e.g. eight halves is the same as four whole units then nine halves is four wholes and a half. Useful for all age groups that need a reminder or an introduction to this topic.

Venn Diagrams & Probability

(0)
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

Reverse Percentages

(0)
This powerpoint contains examples of how to work out reverse percentage calculations using multipliers. The questions are mixed so that students have to identify which type of calculation is required. There is a good mix of realistic situations and vocabulary used in the word problems. Useful for revision too. DfE reference for GCSE 2017 R9 Answers are included in the powerpoint.

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
Solving Simple Equations 1
SkillsheetsSkillsheets

Solving Simple Equations 1

(0)
Use inverse operations for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing to solve simple equations involving only one operation. These equations are mostly straightforward enough to be solved using common sense. This lesson is intended to start to lay the foundations for the idea of ‘doing the same to both sides’ that is the method used to solve more complicated equations. Practise mental arithmetic with whole numbers and decimals. The answers are included GCSE 9-1 references A17, A1, A3, N3 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop
Percentage Grids
SkillsheetsSkillsheets

Percentage Grids

(0)
This collection of 14 worksheets will help students to visualise the relationships between percentages, decimals and fractions better by shading diagrams to represent particular percentages. There is progression from the simple pages where percentages are introduced as fractions ‘out of 100’ to including the decimal equivalent and eventually relating fifths and fractions like 13/25 to percentages. The sheets are useful for short bursts of revision and reinforcement or extension. They are suitable for younger students meeting percentages for the first time and for older children who need reminders and visual reminders of why 1/4 = 25%. There is plenty of repetition so one sheet could be done in class and the paired version used for homework. DfE reference for GCSE 9-1 R9, R3, N2, N10 Please review this resource.

Rearranging Formulas
SkillsheetsSkillsheets

Rearranging Formulas

(3)
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.
