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

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

4 OLD SPEC EDEXCEL CORE 3 BOOSTER LESSON

Powerpoints that can be used as "walking-talking" mock examinations in preparation lessons for the students on the legacy Edexcel course. Go through the questions and model, or email to the students, or print them off and ask them to complete. Full range of topics covered; all based on old examination style questions

RATIO SIMPLIFICATION BINGO

RATIO SIMPLIFICATION BINGO

18 random bingo cards with one guarateed winner. Play the powerpoint (which has two levels with answers that are common) and keep a note of which ratios have been given. These are simple, unit free ratios that involve dividing both numbers by 2, 3, 4, 5 10, 100. Great way to finish a lesson on simplification of ratio

FOUNDATION GCSE REVISION OF ANGLES

FOUNDATION GCSE REVISION OF ANGLES

The lesson is a fully differentiated write on resource that reviews classifying angles, measuring angles, angle calculations (point, line, triangle, parallel). The other 3 documents are multi-choice revision which can be used as homeworks. Great for students working at grades 1/2/3

INTEGRATION BY PARTS INTRODUCTION

INTEGRATION BY PARTS INTRODUCTION

An entire lesson that introduces students to this vital integration technique. It is approached via an easy way of remembering how to split the integral (the way I myself was taught it many years ago). The resources that accompanies the lesson is differentiated on two levels and takes students through basic examples. There are no answers as students are encouraged to check their own answers. There is an exam question and a challenge question

QUICK FIRE FOUNDATION GCSE BASICS GRID 25 AND 26

Two different write-on resources which can be used in multiple ways: as a classwork task, homework task, weekly assessment or revision aid in the run up to assessments. There are 18 quick, "must know" questions for low ability foundation GCSE students of any age. There is a section at the foot of the resource for a score and a comment which students can act upon. Using multiple resources will build up a profile of which topics students need to review to enhance their learning. The sheet can be edited to give an infinite number of variations too. Check out the other grids in the series to build a bank of resources! A low ability GCSE class will take around 25 minutes to complete a grid.

Ten number mental starters for GCSE (differentiated)

Ten number mental starters for GCSE (differentiated)

Simple powerpoints to start the lesson which reviews number skills that any students working at the foundation level should be able to cope with. Students have 2 minutes to answer as many questions from the "easy" or "hard" section as they can

TWO WHOLE LESSONS FOUNDATION nth TERM

TWO WHOLE LESSONS FOUNDATION nth TERM

Two (and perhaps more) lessons on finding the nth term of a linear sequence for foundation students (an +b where a is positive). The starter is differentiated and is simple number patterns. The powerpoint talks through the concept of nth term by likening it to finding numbers behind a numbered door (the term number). In the second lesson the use of the nth term (on the same presentation) is used to generate terms. The spreadsheet contains many fully differentiated tasks (at least 4) which you can select from. Most of them are write on and allow students to get through the work at some pace. There are also multi-choice tasks. The lesson check out can be used at the end of the first lesson to asses the learning

WHOLE LESSON; INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR ANGLE OF POLYGON

WHOLE LESSON; INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR ANGLE OF POLYGON

This is a flexible lesson on the interior angle sum of an n-gon. The starter is a simple multi choice on estimation of angle size which will help warm the class up. The powerpoint contains both classic ways of teaching this subject: the first few slides come at this from the formula exterior angle = 360 divided by the number of sides when the polygon is regular. The latter slides approach it in a more traditional experimental manner of splitting the polygon into n- 2 triangles. How you deliver the lesson is therefore up to you! The spreadsheet contains multiple activities, most of them differentiated and a print out of a table of facts that students can stick in their books. Most of the resources are write on also so there is no need for students to draw a thing. This should be all you need to tackle this topic

WHOLE LESSON: ANGLES ON A LINE AND AROUND A POINT

WHOLE LESSON: ANGLES ON A LINE AND AROUND A POINT

Classic missing angle lesson for younger students or foundation GCSE. The starter is a differentiated number problem. The powerpoint takes students through how to approach missing angle questions and shows some slightly more algebraic examples. The resource can be printed to an A4 booklet which allows students to write on the sheet (no more terrible diagrams in exercise books) and is fully differentiated

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: CLASSIFY AND ESTIMATE ANGLES

WHOLE LESSON: CLASSIFY AND ESTIMATE ANGLES

An entire lesson that gets students to appreciate the different types of angle and estimate their size. The starter is a simple (differentiated) number chain. The power point is fully animated to show how an angle spins around from 0 degrees, passing the key benchmarks of 90, 180 and 270. Students can then estimate the angle. The fully differentiated resource that accompanies this lesson mirrors the board and gives students plenty of support. As this is an activity some students will fly through I have included some bonus differentiated number practise as this will primarily be aimed at foundatio GCSE students who always need the practise!
