Bundle

Two Powerpoints: Pure Maths (560 slides) and Statistics/Mechanics (270 slides).
Each presentation contains explanations, worked examples and questions for students to complete.

Erica makes mistakes; lots of mistakes. You have her homework on every topic covered in the first year of her A level mathematics course where she consistently makes mistakes. Your job, or more accurately, the students in your classes' job is to correct Erica's errors and explain where she's gone wrong so that she doesn't make the same mistakes again. These have gone down well in my classes and really encourage discussion about the mathematics and should embed a deeper understanding.

These are all available individually for free but are available as one big bunch here. The concept is to choose the correct order to cut the wires by answering the questions correctly - each wire is linked to a question. Not all the wires need cutting to prevent guessing at the end. I use these as starters, plenaries (prove you can do the work tasks) and quick homeworks!

These are all available for free but if you haven't the time to search for them then here they are. I find these useful for short homeworks, starters or plenaries and if the answer doesn't appear then they need to check theirs!

This 500+ slide Powerpoint covers all of the first year of the single A Level Pure course (based upon the Edexcel course). It includes explanations, worked examples and questions for students to do. I have included everything, possibly more than you may need but I’d rather give people the option to skip a slide than have to make something up on the spot. I used this during the first year of the new course.

The world’s increasing population means that Santa has to run a rotation system for his reindeer to stop them getting over tired. This means six question and eight answers for students to solve so that Santa can select his reindeer. These offer a self-checking, festive feel to maths lessons (my Year 11 liked them anyway). Topics include Inequalities, differentiation, functions (substitution, inverse and composite), simplifying indices, solving quadratics (both factorising and non-factorising), simultaneous equations, rearranging formulae and others. We were told to teach until the holidays (fair enough) so I did this…

Ten Maths Advent Calendars on various topics including solving linear equations, differentiation (both available separately if you want to see what they are like), indices, substitution, functions, ratio, percentages, equations of line, calculating with fractions and Bidmas. Each has 24 questions whose answers are numbered from 1 to 24 (1/24 to 24/24 in the calculating with fractions one) and when the solutions are placed in order a joke is revealed. These have gone down well in my classes and tick the “proper work right up to the holidays” box too. The jokes are pretty lame but that’s part of it!

All these Christmas-themed resources are available for free but if you want them as a bundle then here you go. These festive worksheets cover number and algebra including Bidmas, solving equations, linear and quadratic graphs, co-ordinates, ratio, inequalities, LCM, estimation and simultaneous equations.

Three codebreakers ranging from easy to difficult as you go through them, but all with a Christmas joke (made up by me, so I apologise now) and with all the questions being Christmas-y too. All sorts of topics covered. Hopefully errors corrected (I found one on each sheet!).

Tes Picks

Four different codebreakers (and jokes) ranging from simplifying numeric indices, moving to algebraic and then onto evaluating negative and fractional indices.

The usual joke to find the punchline for but two sheets: sheet one is relatively easy whereas sheet two is all mixed numbers. Corrections made to codebreaker 1 - thank you for spotting them for me!

These are all available for free individually but if you don’t have the time then this is for you. Clive makes common mistakes, mistakes you’ll have seen in class. Your students need to find the mistakes, correct them and explain where Clive has gone wrong so that he doesn’t do the same thing again. These activities are designed to create discussion in class and can be used to assess understanding.

These are all available for free individually but if you want the whole lot then here you are. These are part-QR codes that can be completed by answering various maths questions. All answers are binary (have two answers: yes/no, odd/even, true/false) and the instructions say which must be coloured. Each completed QR code then scans to a video in general (I believe a couple scan to pictures of me I think!) but it is a way of checking the answers.

Twenty two codebreakers on various topics including bearings, similarity, scale drawing, simultaneous equations (linear/quadratic), circles, angles, transforming functions, metric units, Pythagoras and trigonometry and 3D views. The usual format of correct answers revealing the punchline to a cheesy joke.

Erica is struggling with many aspects of the A level mathematics course and needs help from your students. What you have here is 17of her homeworks, each with mistakes in solutions which your students need to find, correct and explain where Erica has gone wrong. These are purely designed to generate discussion and to allow students to demonstrate their understanding, whilst also allowing them to show their own methods of silving problems. These are all based upon the new A level curriculum.

This works its way up from simplifying basic ratios (grade D/3) to real life ratio problems including recipes (grade C/4) onto conversion graphs (C/4) then direct and inverse proportion including their graphs (A/7) through a series of questions on the topic and more practice questions if required. Students click through based upon their ability to answer the questions and should allow them to focus their revision at the correct point.

All these are available for free but if you want them all in one hit then here you go. These can be used as a quick homework, plenary or starter and get students to find a punchline to a joke, a film or a song title whilst embedding their newly acquired knowledge.

This is a powerpoint covering all areas of Decision 1 (I realise they are only putting it in further maths from 2017). It contains brief notes by way of an explanation, model answers to questions and a question or two for the students to do; all of the questions come with answers that you can display when ready. The slide show comes with a progress grid (regularly referred to in the presentation) so that students can mark their progress from start to finish and pinpoint any areas that may need extra work with a “red/amber/green” system that they fill in. It’s what I use in my lessons before setting tasks from worksheets or text books to practice.

This 270 slide Powerpoint covers all of the first year of the single A Level Applied course (based upon the Edexcel course). It includes explanations, worked examples and questions for students to do. I have included everything, possibly more than you may need but I’d rather give people the option to skip a slide than have to make something up on the spot. Colleagues of mine used this during the first year of the new course.
