Making Maths Memorable

Ever since my PGCE I have been convinced that every Maths topic has a unique and interesting way to be taught. 7 years later and I have collected and created 100s of resources to prove my point. All resources, including IB and A Level, are designed to be thoroughly engaging but yet cover every bit of content required with plenty of practise too. Teach LCM with the life of the Cicada bugs or teach proportions using celebrity faces and the golden ratio. All fully animated engaging powerpoints.

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).

Standard Deviation

Standard Deviation

A simple but very clever way to introduce standard deviation. Students thoroughly understand the purpose and how to use standard deviation being taught with this resource. Pair it with a few extra questions from a textbook to make a full lesson.

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.

Fun Maths Quiz

Fun Maths Quiz

Great way to end a term with a class. Start by drawing up a score table on the board with team names down the side (team sizes of 2-4 works nicely) and rounds 1 – 5 along the top. Hand out the “Table topper” and explain that they will have the whole quiz to answer that. Start quiz and swap and mark between rounds. Keep it pacey and the quiz can be completed and marked in 50 minutes. Decide how long to give for the Picture Round depending on how long you want the entire quiz to last. For the music round I downloaded the videos from Youtube (just type ss after the www. in the url)

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.
