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.

Seven pages of different dice designs for you to print out onto coloured card and make up into cubes. Let students make their own dice. The dice are numbered 1-3 ( repeated ), 1-6, 5-10 and 7-12 or have 1-3 ( repeated ) or 1-6 dots on them. There is also a blank net for you to draw your own design on or type in characters from your keyboard.
Use for learning about 3-D shapes and nets, for practising basic arithmetic or for probability experiments. Stick weights inside to create a biased dice.

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. Evaluate 1.1³ to show how powers of numbers can be found using expansions.
The sheets could be used independently by your brightest y9s and above as they include instructions.

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.

This colourful powerpoint uses diagrams, animations and photographs to introduce more vocabulary needed for working with circles e.g. chord, arc, sector and segment whilst revising the words introduced in 'Circles- Introduction' ( radius, diameter, circumference, centre, circular, semicircle ). It is aimed at GCSE students and below, both at foundation and higher level. The later slides show the connections between circles and 3D shapes and extend vocabulary to sphere, hemisphere, cylinder, ellipse, cone and concentric circles.
The slides have notes and suggestions accompanying them.
The worksheets further reinforce the names of different parts of circles and one is designed to make students draw and measure their own diagrams and introduces ideas they will meet later when studying circle theorems.
The video shows how to draw a hexagon by constructing it inside a circle using arcs. Some students find drawing circles very difficult and anything that motivates them to practise is useful.

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.

10 worksheets containing linear equations that 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.

This collection contains a wide range of worksheets about percentages aimed at levels 5 - 8 of the new GCSE 9-1 curriculum. Use multipliers to calculate percentages, increase or decrease amounts and see how to use multipliers in repeated change questions ( especially simple and compound interest problems ). The sheets explain the methods used and check understanding as students work through them. Answers are provided. There is also a powerpoint about reverse percentage calculations as it is a topic that students often find particularly difficult to grasp.
