I taught in a range of schools for many years before moving into FE, where I found creative and imaginative approaches just as rewarding with adults. Most of my resources are concerned with giving control to the learner, through a range of methods. Some are great for just giving them experience of examination questions, and the chance to discuss these with other learners. I now concentrate on spreading the range of creations from UK KS1 to KS4, and across the Common Standards.

Key stage 2 - getting more familiar with fractions:
'compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators'
Simple stuff for young learners, or revision at later stages.

GCSE Higher Tier says ‘apply systematic listing strategies, including use of the product rule for counting (i.e. if there are m ways of doing one task and for each of these, there are n ways of doing another task, then the total number of ways the two tasks can be done is m × n ways)’.
A clear, colourful and carefully explained PowerPoint presentation building up the skills from simple matching problems to calculating combinations and permutations in a variety of realistic and original settings, with lots of opportunity for the learner to reflect, apply, and evaluate the problems.
Also available in my shop are two differentiated worksheets of adapted exam questions from sample and real GCSE assessments.
Plus a PDF version that will work on all operating systems.

Everything needed to introduce algebra in Key Stage 2 (Year 6) or to revise and build upon it in KS 3 or later. Formulas, sequences, missing numbers, number patterns and missing number problems.
Presentations, worksheets, activities and assessments covering the whole of algebra in Year 6, and also suitable for older learners. Lots of opportunities for deep thinking, and for differentiation, and all suitable for editing if required. Most have answers. And many questions based on previous SATs.
All written to new UK standards (2015).
Year 6 Algebra
Pupils should be taught to:
• use simple formulae
• generate and describe linear number sequences
• express missing number problems algebraically
• find pairs of numbers that satisfy an equation with two unknowns
• enumerate possibilities of combinations of two variables.
Notes and guidance (non-statutory)
Pupils should be introduced to the use of symbols and letters to represent variables and unknowns in mathematical situations that they already understand, such as:
• missing numbers, lengths, coordinates and angles
• formulae in mathematics and science
• equivalent expressions (for example, a + b = b + a)
• generalisations of number patterns
• number puzzles (for example, what two numbers can add up to).

Year 4 - Geometry – properties of shapes
Two separate bundles of activities covering (a) triangles and (b) quadrilaterals, all for the new KS2 specifications. Specifically written for Year 4, they can easily be used at any level. In Word for editing or PDF for clear copies. Activities, worksheets and assessments, plus a short presentations on triangles and quadrilaterals. The presentations are included as PowerPoints and PDFs, to ensure at least one will open on any computer.
Statutory requirements
Pupils should be taught to:
• compare and classify geometric shapes, including quadrilaterals and triangles, based on their properties and sizes
Notes and guidance (non-statutory)
Pupils continue to classify shapes using geometrical properties, extending to classifying different triangles (for example, isosceles, equilateral, scalene) and quadrilaterals (for example, parallelogram, rhombus, trapezium).
Pupils compare and order angles in preparation for using a protractor and compare lengths and angles to decide if a polygon is regular or irregular.

A set of engaging activities to give the learners the concept of area. National Curriculum Year 4 mathematics.
Area by counting squares, area of rectangles as arrays, and addition and subtraction of rectangles to find the area of a rectilinear shape.
Statutory requirements
Pupils should be taught to:
• find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares
Notes and guidance (non-statutory)
They relate area to arrays and multiplication.
But also great for revision in Year 5 and above. I've done this sort of thing with Foundation GCSE!

Foundation tier now requires students to know the exact values in surd form of specific angles.
A simple and clear illustration of how to derive these values, and the values themselves.
Easy to use in the classroom, or print slides for crib sheets for learners.
The specs require:
'•know the exact values of sin θ and cos θ for θ = 0°, 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°
•know the exact value of tan θ for θ = 0°, 30°, 45° and 60 '
Includes a recap of the trig functions and Pythagoras, and the graphs of each function to show values at zero and ninety degrees, plus showing that tan 90 does not exist.
Plus an activity to use the above values in sin and cos sum and difference formulas, giving practice in manipulating surds for higher candidates, and an extension to use the addition and subtraction formula for tangent.
Hence entirely suitable for A'level pure mathematics, and recap of GCSE knowledge and skills.

Functional Skills
A set of multiple choice quizzes that I created for Functional Skills Mathematics, covering the mathematical topics as revision for functionality.
Equally they can be used at any level for starters, fillers, or just a bit of fun.
(All images are mine, I think, and mostly taken by me.)

Maths National Curriculum
Multiplying fractions Year 5
’multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams’
Clear, concise and colourful presentation giving a variety of real scenarios with appropriate images and photographs to give the learners opportunities the ability to see this topic from a variety of positions. And hopefully the learners will develop alternative ways to find solutions. A PDF version is included to ensure it looks good on any screen with any computer system.
Plus a worksheet of questions, and another file with the answers.
Meets the criteria for Year 5, but invaluable for revision in year 6 and in Key Stages 3 and 4.

Full set of resources to cover types of number for mathematics national curriculum in Year 5. Great for preparation for SATs in Year 6, or revision at KS3.
Four clear PowerPoints with lots of questions and exercises, all with answers.
Specifications:
‘Identify multiples and factors, including finding all factor pairs of a number, and common factors of two numbers.’
I’ve tried the files myself on a different computer, and had to adjust the size of text on four or five slides, but very easy to do. And because not all systems work the same I’ve included a PDF of each of the presentations - even easier to show and will always be as intended.

‘Tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII.’
Powerpoint introduction with lots of questions and handout, worksheets in Word and pdf, plus lots of real examples of clock faces. All you need to give the learners an initial experience, with recap and reviews.

Surds are new to the Foundation part of GCSE maths, so I've made a very clear step-by-step PowerPoint that introduces surds, explains irrational numbers, demonstrates how to simplify surds, and gives examples and practice in applying all four rules of arithmetic using surds. Plus rationalising the denominator and more.
Throughout the presentation there are groups of questions on each aspect to apply the skills, all with answers.
Learners are now expected to appreciate that a surd gives an exact answer rather than a decimal approximation, and an understanding is essential for the new topics in algebra and trigonometry that are now on Foundation.
Plus, it could be a very solid introduction to Higher tier surds.

Standard style lesson plans put into PowerPoint for easy showing in the classroom, printing for handouts etc. All the objectives covering Algebra, Geometry and Measure, and Mensuration and Calculation included. Twenty seven lessons in all.
After getting 'one-star' review on the complementary set, which covers number, ratio etc., I decided to offer a free sample of the first three algebra PowerPoints so you can try them first before you commit to buy them. Find the three free samples here:

Two sets of questions, differentiated by paper, for learners to complete. Plus answers.
Counting has always been on Foundation, so quite easy for learners.
Sophisticated counting strategies are new to the GCSE higher tier. The specs say:
apply systematic listing strategies, including use of the product rule for counting (i.e. if there are m ways of doing one task and for each of these, there are n ways of doing another task, then the total number of ways the two tasks can be done is m × n ways)
Hence also suitable for revision at A Level Statistics.
All questions follow the format of 2017 exams across the boards, and the SAMs and Mocks available.

Maths GCSE Ratio. Part (a) Dividing a given quantity into two parts
Introduction suitable for Foundation and Higher Tier, acting as a reminder and revision of KS3 Ratio.
Simply as is says - dividing into parts, with PowerPoint introduction and two sets of worksheets.

Introduction to surds and irrational numbers, surds in calculations, surds in trigonometry, surds investigations, surds in brackets, surds and rationalising the denominator. Presentations and worksheets, enough for two, three, maybe more lessons. All clearly presented, and based on current GCSE questions.
