Operations with fractions

Operations with fractions

Severn activities/problems designed to get students thinking about fractions in a deeper manner. I am planning on making similar resources to be used as homework tasks.

Circle theorems

Circle theorems

An introduction into the laws used with circle theorems. I have ran this lesson numerous times. The note taking (by the students) works really well if they have a print out with blank circles and space around for note taking. Each theorem is taken one at a time, notes taken, examples gone through and followed by students practising.
