Golden Ratio in the face investigation

Golden Ratio in the face investigation

A great lesson where students investigate the golden ratio proportions in the face. A 10 minute starter using the same concept with the hand helps introduce the idea. They can then look at how well celebrities fit the golden ratio. Finishes with a video that shows somebody using photoshop to make a face match the golden ratio grid (a link to youtube).

Oil Trading Game

Oil Trading Game

Fun one-off lesson. Perfect for end of term fun lessons! Students get to buy and sell oil barrels using news items to aid their decisions. All explained clearly through the powerpoint. 3 different sets of news articles so potential to use it for 3 different lessons with the same class. Lasts around 45 minutes. Teachers use a clever excel spreadsheet that does all the calculations for them. If students make a mistake with their own calculations the spreadsheet will "fine" them and calculate their totals by itself.

Christmas Mobius Strips

Christmas Mobius Strips

Students find it fascinating to what happens when cutting a mobius strip in half. Then how different it is when you cut it at a 3rd. The powerpoint guides students to discover the outcomes themselves. Armed with a few extra strips of colourful paper and a stapler the teacher can connect everything the students made to make a very mathematical christmas decoration.

Half lesson, one sheet test on straight line graphs

Half lesson, one sheet test on straight line graphs

I have written a number of mini tests to fit perfectly on to one sheet of A4 (I actually print them 2 to a page so A5!). These tests can be completed and peer marked in the same lesson and will be reused by you many many times over the years. Really easy to mark due to the layout of the test paper and the markschemes included. This tests all types of plotting linear equation questions that can be found in the GCSE. Ideal for finishing the straight line graphs chapter. I use it for a pretest before the official chapter test.

What is the Volume of your body project

What is the Volume of your body project

Using their ability to calculate the volumes of cuboids, prisms and spheres students use measuring tapes and maths to estimate the volume of their body. Differentiated resource over two levels so students can stick to just using cuboids or can move onto using spheres, cyclinders and trapezoidal prisms. Perfect project to finish off a mensuration unit.

Angle calculations Killer Question worksheet

I created an extra tough question that uses all KS3 angle knowledge and takes a good half lesson to complete. All students love trying to tackle such a difficult question that is still totally accessible. Answers included.

Circle theorems and intersecting chords

Circle theorems and intersecting chords

Absolutely everything you need to teach Circle Theorems. Intersecting Chords is not in the GCSE but nice extension for the top ability and is in the MEP. Guides students to write revision notes for each theorem and gives directed practise after each theorem is learnt (on powerpoint and on worksheet). Finish with (or use throughout) a 50 question worksheet that hits all theorems. All answers included. A handy worksheet to help students match theorems to questions for revision later down the line also included.

Maths Linkee (Maths word game)

Maths Linkee (Maths word game)

Students have to compete to find the maths word that relates to the four questions. The answer to each question is a clue to the final word. If the student calls out the correct maths word after the first question they get 4 points. If they guess after the 2nd question they get 3 points and so on. Guess incorrectly then they are frozen out of that round. Contains 15 rounds but set up so you can create your own (or get students to make them!) very easily.
