KS2 and KS3 Maths Activity: Tesselation Puzzles

(2)
1. The first document is a word document with isometric paper. The grid in word has been adjusted in such a way as to allow lines and shapes to be snapped to the corners of the isometric paper. So you can effectively draw isometrically accurately in word. 2. The first page of the second document describes a tessellation problem and the second page shows the solution. 3. The first page of the third document describes another tesselation problem and the second page shows the solution.
Pattern
SmethsSmeths

Pattern

(1)
Explains how to create and experiment with an interesting spiralling pattern. Resource could be used simply at KS3 just to reproduce the pattern or make different similar patterns. At KS4 it could be used as a investigation as well.
Shape and Space - Fractals
SmethsSmeths

Shape and Space - Fractals

(2)
Introduces fractals using an animated power point If you use the isometric paper provided and follow the instructions on the power point it is possible to construct a Von Kock curve using triangles of length 27,9,3,1.

Interactive Car Tallying Exercise

(65)
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation. This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes

An excel workbook that covers the following written calculation topics: Box Multiplication Italian Multiplication Column Addition Column Subtraction Short Division
Fraction Shapes
SmethsSmeths

Fraction Shapes

(0)
The pupils have to reason what fraction of the shape is shaded. These problems will tests the pupils geometric reasoning skills as well as giving them a visual guide as to what a fraction is.
Trigonometric Function

Trigonometric Function

(0)
The work sheet explains how to solve sin(x) = y and cos(x) = y for x in the range of 0 degrees to 360. The web link is a geogebra resource that demonstrates why the algorithm work. Gives the students a copy of the word document and demonstrate using the geogebra link.
Simultaneous Equations
SmethsSmeths

Simultaneous Equations

(0)
A set of simultaneous equations with solutions based on a random numbers (so you can generate as many as you like!). The answers are in column P. If this proves popular I will make a more advanced version.
Quadractic Factorisation
SmethsSmeths

Quadractic Factorisation

(2)
There are 3 tabs at the bottom, each tab contains a set of quadratic equations for factorisation. Each tab has a different difficulty level. Scroll over to the right for the answers and press F9 for a fresh set of equations Note, you could equally use this resource to set expanding the brackets problems.
Maths: Probability Game
SmethsSmeths

Maths: Probability Game

(3)
This is a game which demonstrates the different probabilities associated with the score on two dice. The Rules & Lesson Plan tab explain how to play the game and use the resource
Statistical Measures
SmethsSmeths

Statistical Measures

(1)
Spread sheet with interactive activities a work sheet and challenge questions. Tabs in worksheet: Interactive Matching: Students match mean mode etc to the appropriate definition Interactive Averages: Find mean mode etc from changable list of numbers Worksheet: List of mean, mode, median and range questions Challenge Questions: Students have to find data that would give the specified mean mode etc Basic Definitions: List the basic definitions. Could be displayed whilst students are working
Venn Diagram Logic

Venn Diagram Logic

(1)
1, Hand out one copy of the word document to each student. It contains a table of blank Venn Diagrams. 2, The geogebra resource contain 3 Venn diagrams the top 2 show the region selected for events A or B according to the option selected in the middle of the page. 3, The bottom diagram can be shaded using an interactive white board and referring to the top 2 diagrams and after discussion with the students. 4, The students also do this using the sheet given to them
Pythagoras Challenge
SmethsSmeths

Pythagoras Challenge

(0)
Extension work and really quite difficult. The students are presented with a number of diagrams that can be used to prove Pythagoras' Theorem. The first one is easy, the rest are quite hard. Would definitely challenge at KS5 as well as KS4. The diagrams are taken from &'Alex&';s Adventures in Numberland' by Alex Bellos.
