MODULE ASSESSMENT GCSE FOUNDATION: MULTI CHOICE NO MARKING

MODULE ASSESSMENT GCSE FOUNDATION: MULTI CHOICE NO MARKING

When pushed for time, a powerpoint that covers all subjects at the lower end of the foundation spectrum. Students are given an answer sheet and complete the assessment. Every 10 questions they are given the answers and keep a tally of their score. At the end there are some calculations which can be done (the entire assessment is non calculator). The students are then given a level (from the old NC KS3 levels) and their results are logged. The assessment takes an hour. I have used this at the start of the year in the past to assess what students can and cannot remember

FOUNDATION INTRODUCTION TO PYTHAGORAS

FOUNDATION INTRODUCTION TO PYTHAGORAS

Aimed at very young and/or low ability foundation students, this is a lesson where students will simply be told how Pythagoras allows us to calculate the missing side on a right angled triangle. The powerpoint takes them through step by step and the resource that accompanies it is fully differentiated and write-on so that no time is wasted drawing diagrams

WHOLE LESSON: MEASURING ANGLE

WHOLE LESSON: MEASURING ANGLE

An entire lesson on measuring angles. The starter is a simple differentiated number chain. The powerpoint includes a fully animated protractor and steps on how to use it correctly. The resource that accompanies can be printed to an A4 booklet and should allow a standard school protractor to fit on each angle nicely. The task is differentiated with the easiest angles all being read from the right hand scale. As some students will grasp this quicker I have included a simple coins and totals exercises for those who finish early. Note this lesson does not include measuring reflex angles, as this is rare to examination papers. Perhaps this could be shown in a plenary

WHOLE LESSON: ANGLES IN PARALLEL LINES

WHOLE LESSON: ANGLES IN PARALLEL LINES

Whole lesson on interior, alternate, corresponding angles. There is a multi-choice starter reviewing the angle sum of a triangle. The main presentation is animated to show where corresponding angles come from. There are then some basic definitions and some worked examples with geometric reasoning. The last few slides are just questions for you to annotate at the board with your class. The spreadsheet contains multiple tasks and so can be differentiated to suit your students. Easier tasks are multi-choice and harder questions will challenge the more able
