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

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.

Algebra and Shapes. Perimeter and Area Formulas

Algebra and Shapes. Perimeter and Area Formulas

This power point can be used very flexibly to teach, practise or revise various algebraic processes whilst also reminding students about the basic properties of shapes. The slides show a wide variety of shapes. For each shape students can create an expression or formula for its perimeter ( and also for the area for many of the shapes ). In doing this they can practise collecting like terms, using brackets in expressions ( and multiplying them out ). The formulas created can then be used to substitute numbers in or for rearranging work. There are two worksheets ( with answers ) to go with the powerpoint which concentrate on creating expressions for perimeters.

Times Tables Practice Booklet

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

The Equation of a Circle x² + y² = r²

The Equation of a Circle x² + y² = r²

These ten worksheets guide students through the origin of the x² + y² = r² equation of a circle and use a variety of problems to reinforce their understanding of the equation and its uses. Tangents are also introduced as are the methods for finding points of intersection between lines and circles. There are plenty of reminders for solving simple quadratic equations like x² = 16 and also simultaneous equations where one equation is not linear. Written for the GCSE 9-1 specs but the material is also useful for A-level C2 students. Some of the sheets are similar so one can be done in class and the other used for reinforcement. There are problem sheets to extend the most students. As ever, the aim with SKILLSHEETS is to encourage learners to think about what they are doing and use diagrams to help them understand the topic.

Fraction Grids

Fraction Grids

This collection of 10 worksheets will help students to visualise fractions better by shading diagrams to represent particular fractions. There is progression from the simple pages where the boxes can be shaded by just counting 3 out of 4 boxes for example to those where the student has to see how to split a 4x5 grid into tenths in order to shade 7/10. There are worksheets that require fractions to be identified then cancelled or for a diagram to be interpreted in two different ways e.g. 10/15 = 2/3. One page considers the shaded AND unshaded parts of a grid that must always make up the whole. The last page illustrates how fractions can be compared in size by converting them to have a common denominator. DfE reference for GCSE 9-1 R3, N1 Please review this resource.
