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.

ARITHMETIC BASICS

ARITHMETIC BASICS

This set of arithmetic worksheets is written and illustrated for adults and older teenagers who want to improve their very basic arithmetic skills but it is also suitable for younger age groups. These SKILLSHEETS are intended to provide practice in basic counting and arithmetic skills. The concepts of addition and subtraction are introduced in a variety of ways using different vocabulary. The first section concentrates on the addition and subtraction of numbers up to ten. Learners are encouraged to see connections between the number bonds. e.g. 5 + 4 = 9 and 9 - 5 = 4 so that they begin to recall the facts more easily. 4 + 5 = 9 9 - 4 = 5 The later worksheets move students gently on to simple calculations involving numbers up to 100. There is a systematic approach to adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers using constant reinforcement of place value. The main emphasis is on mental calculations though some calculations have been set out vertically to prepare students for more formal methods later. The work is continued to harder examples involving borrowing and carrying in "Arithmetic" SKILLSHEETS. Each worksheet comes in three versions. Monochrome, colour or on-screen completion ( answers need to be checked by a tutor ) For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop and website to see similar products. http://www.skillsheets.co.uk

Calculating Percentages using Multpliers

Calculating Percentages using Multpliers

Three worksheets that explain how to calculate percentages of amounts by using multipliers e.g. 23% of £540 = 0.23 x 540. Two of the worksheets have duplicates using slightly different numbers so there are 5 pages in total including the answers. The questions ask students to use different methods to calculate percentages and check the answers are the same and to think about WHY the method works by showing that dividing by 2 is the same as multiplying by ½. This topic usually skips by so quickly at school that many students miss it and are left perplexed when they are expected to understand how to do reverse percentage calculations.
