I have been teaching MATHEMATICS (11-16) since 1990. I have regularly been commended on my classroom displays and the quality of my resources as I feel this enriches the student experience. As a self-taught graphic designer I now produce professional quality materials for our academy/academy chain across all departments including posters/banners and promotional materials. I am currently working on updating some older resources as well as developing new ones!

Did you every want that odd sheet of Specialist paper for a lesson and couldn’t find any? AND did you want/need any A3 size so you didn’t have to stick A4 sheets together? IN this collection you will find Black, Green, Blue, Red and Grey versions of the follow papers A4 and A3 GRAPH PAPER 2mm (grid line every 10 - major grid line every 20) 2mm ( major grid line every 10) 1mm (grid line every 10 - major grid line every 20) 1mm ( major grid line every 10) SQUARED 1cm 5mm 2mm 1mm ISOMETRIC 5mm 1cm 2cm SPOTTY 5mm (1pt spots) 1cm Triangluar (1pt spots) 1cm Triangluar (2pt spots) 2cm Triangluar (1pt spots) 2cm Triangluar (2pt spots) 1cm Squared (1pt spots) 1cm Squared (1pt spots) All are PDF files and sometime when viewing you might need to either zoom in or out to see the detail If printing the A3 version you will need to make sure it is sent to an A3 printer otherwise it will try to tile and you’ll end up with 4 sheets instead of 1. Any of the colour versions will print grey if printed in greyscale in various shades of grey depending on the colour. I have included a grey version that should print 50% black. IF there are any other PAPERS you want adding to this collection please make a comment and i’ll endeavour to add it to the collect as soon as possible. I hope there are useful!

DICE THROWING SIMULATOR - tool for  demonstrating Expected  Vs Experimental outcomes

DICE THROWING SIMULATOR - tool for demonstrating Expected Vs Experimental outcomes

(3)
In this EXCEL FILE - Simulate the throwing of 1,10,100,1000,10000 or 100000 dice at a time with the click of a button. A bar graph and pie chart are updated with each click. Hopefully a useful tool for demonstrating that experimental probabilities differ from expected probability but as you increase the frequency of the experiment that they get closer to the expected. the Excel worksheet does use MACROS to make the buttons work and you may be asked to enable them. Some versions of Excel don’t allow this so it will be a case just trying it (sorry if it doesn’t work for you)

PRIME NUMBERS LESS THAN 100 - Via PRIME PIXEL PICTURES (set of 25) + more

PLEASE TRY THE FREE VERSION FIRST A fun way to learn the prime numbers less than 100 A set of 25 pixel picture puzzles Shade the squares that have prime numbers Identify Prime and Composite (non-prime) numbers 3 levels of difficulty Worksheets (A5/A4) + ANSWERS + blank grids Guidance/Instructions** Prior Knowledge Required Being able to identify some if not all the prime numbers less than 100 unless you use this as an activity for this purpose. This is an activity designed to make the learning of PRIME numbers much easier and I have been surprised, in the past, how successful it has been. Start with the PRACTICE question if needed. For this and ONE STAR PUZZLES the if you work through the grid, starting in the top left hand corner and work left to right and row by row the sequence of PRIME NUMBERS <100 appear IN ORDER. So find 2 and work through to 97 The sequence repeats (partially in some cases) up to the prime needed complete the puzzle Get them to do this methodically - this is how they pick up the sequence ( a printed sequence for them to have alongside may scaffold the initial process). TWO STAR - Same rules but generally a larger grid THREE STAR - Usually a larger grid but primes not in a particular order although some part of the prime sequence may occur. (Find a 2 and it may be next to a 3, then a 5, then a 7 etc etc) I have provided some blank grids for pupils to make up their own puzzles. Draw a picture by colouring in a small grid. Then working with a larger grid get them to write LIGHTLY SHADE their picture onto a big grid In each shaded square they then write a PRIME NUMBER (in sequence at first as in a one star puzzle) which gets them writing out the primes) FILL IN THE REST OF THE GRID WITH NON-PRIME which is an equally IMPORTANT TASK EITHER COPY THIS ONTO ANOTHER BLANK GRID or use COMPUTER and TABLE IN WORD, POWERPOINT or similar to produce a printable puzzle. I have used ADOBE’s InDesign to make this set of puzzles Please Comment/follow so if there are upgrades/changes you can be easily notified - Thank You

IDENTIFY THE 2D SHAPES - Interactive whiteboard Activity/Starter

(0)
Use to improve students identification of 2d shapes and info about them. This resource is best used on an interactive whiteboard. You will need Adobe Flash Player on your computer (most have it installed as standard) The activity is to Drag a shape into it’s appropriate position. If it is correct it snaps into place. If it’s incorrect it will return to the top. If you click the ? next to each box it gives info about that shape (click the ? again to make it close before proceeding) I have other resources similar to this for 3d shapes and matching formulas to shapes.

PRIME NUMBERS Less than 10000 POSTER sizes A3, A2 and A1

(0)
Choose from A3, A2 and A1 versions of a poster showing all the prime number less than 10000. Will need to be printed and the tiles stuck together for A1 and A2 - instructions included The font size on the A3 version is only 12pt I always think that the white border around the edge to the final poster should be removed (for me, personally, it looks better and you don’t notice the “joins” as much). A2 should be 2 x A3 or 4 x A4 sheets to stick together A1 should be 4 x A3 or 8 x A4 sheets to stick together (depending on your printer settings) Please make a comment/follow so If there are any updates you can be notified.

If you download please comment/follow so if the resource is updated I will be able to notify you. SEE MY OTHER DOMINO RELATED RESOURCES Virtually Identical to my set of Ladybird Domino 0-0 to 10-10 resource but with Extra dominoes so that a full set of 0-0 to 12-12 would cover THE TWELVE DAYS of CHRISTMAS. So 91 Dominoes altogether. Lots of opportunity to set differentiated tasks IDEAS FOR USE ALSO IN PDF You could even sing along to the domino you have or find ones that fit the song, as well as looking at all sorts of maths problems that could be weedled out of this topic. How many birds in total? How many men in total? How many women in total? Number patterns and sequences : 1 partridge on day one 1 partridge and 2 turtle doves on day 2 but thats 2 partridges and 2 turtle doves in total after 2 days … and 5 partridges ,8 turtle doves, 9 french hens, 8 calling birds and 5 gold rings after 5 days etc etc etc Perhaps could be used as a writing exercise in English. OR Just use as normal dominoes

PRIME FACTOR FINDER (1-100) - Starter / Interactive Whiteboard Activity /Lesson Resource

I have used this with all year groups / all abilities as both a starter activity and a lesson resource when covering this topic. It can be used by student or staff on a computer by hovering/rolling/clicking a specific number They can come to the interactive whiteboard and touch one of the numbers to give them the prime factor/index notation for that number. It can be used to check sets of questions from worksheets or as part of a prime factor bingo game. It needs Adobe Flash Player installed on the computer it is being used on. ( Most computers do have this) If anyone can think of other uses please make a comment. *** Apologies to the first few people who downloaded this resource as I mistakenly uploaded the incorrect version- should be OK now) There was a problem with 34 and 78

GUNPOWDER PLOT GAME (2 player) - Stack barrels of gunpowder and investigate maths strategy.

It is an Adobe Flash file but even if you don’t have this installed it works in Internet Explorer (Right click and open with IE) It is a 2 player game that I have used as a starter (mainly around November 5th in the UK) OR EVEN BASED an ENTIRE LESSON AROUND IT I give the pupils the choice of going first or second. Either me Vs 1 pupil or me Vs the class As I know the strategy that you have to get to 3,9 or 15 first to make sure you it doesn’t matter who goes first as I usually win and it makes them more eager to have another go. It really gets the pupils fired up and after a few games someone might notice what the strategy is or rather part of it. They’ll probably notice first that you alwasy get to 15 first so get them to explain why. (it’s usually “…well if we add 1 you’ll add 5 or if we add 4 you’ll add 2…” etc Get them to think about what they have just said 1+5,2+4 …so its something to do with 6 15 is 6 less than 21 … perhaps you can use this knowledge to make sure you get to 15 first etc etc I have gone on to get them to investigate other target numbers eg 47 find the first number you need to get to 47 /6 is 7 remainder 5 so you need to go first and say 5 if the next player adds 2 you need to add 4 (2+4=6) What would happen if you could place up to 10 barrels and target number was 100?

ART ETCH-A-SKETCH SIMULATION ---- Lunch Time/After School Club--- Special Needs

(0)
I have only used this in an after-school club. The students appeared to like the challenge of drawing the best picture. To use it Adobe Flash Player will need to be installed on the computer (most have it automatically installed) and may work if opened in Internet Explorer Simple to use - Arrow Keys Change colour ,speed and size of pen by clicking with mouse. HARD to get a good picture ( as I suppose an Etch-A-Sketch is). It anyone wants to save and print one they’ve done you’ll have to ‘screen-shot’ it. ( but then you couldn’t keep an Etch-A-Sketch picture) Please comment if you find a use for it

You can simulate the throwing of up to 3 dice on a whiteboard for classroom activities. You will need Adobe Flash Player installed on you computer. (they usually do have it installed as standard) Now 2 files that basically do the same thing (the update file has an slightly different menu system) Please check out my other upload that simulates dice throwing and so you can look at expected outcomes and experimental outcomes.
