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

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!

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)

A fun activity to find the 20 differences.
Quite challenging.
Suggest laminating and using dry wipe markers so can be used again in the future.
Could be used as an activity where the students have to write a description of where the differences are.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PART FINISHED RESOURCE - but still usable
WORKSHEETS and ANSWERS PROVIDED
PRIME NUMBERS LESS THAN 100 - Via PRIME PIXEL PICTURES (set of 25) + more NOW AVAILABLE
well a mixture of ideas to throw out there
Basically you have a grid of numbers in this case between 1-100
Pupils identify and colour/shade in the prime numbers to produce a PIXEL PICTURE
This resource is just an basic example where the primes come in order so they get to know the sequence
Others
are on bigger grids
Different colours by condition set
Prime mixed up
I have found it surprisingly successful in getting the pupils to learn their prime numbers
Also in this resource I have included a bit mash-up of various other areas of maths that could be brought in - PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK

I usually use this resource at a starter or a settler activity with a given time limit (say 10 mins).
I give advice about doing as many as possibly and in whichever order the students want.
Afterward we have discussions about which they find the easiest or can do the quickest.
Usually addition comes out the easiest until I suggest that if you know your tables that the multiplications are the easiest to do and probably the quickest as they don’t need working out. They get to realise that if they really know their tables that the divisions are quicker as they’re usually a single digit number to write as the answer.
In my mark book I record how many get correct out of how many they do and a time if they complete them all before the given time.
Most of the students really like doing this challenge. Improving their time/score is appears to motivate them. I have had quite a few students ask for sheets so they can practice at home.
Use the TABS on the spreadsheet to set the difficulty by changing the MAX and MIN values for each mathematical operation,
See the questions(recalculate if necessary ) and the answers for that set of questions.
It may be a good idea to PRINT SCREEN a set of answers if you intend to put the answer in a PowerPoint.
I usually print a few sets of answers off per table so they can mark their own. Sometimes I read them out.
If you cut the answer sheet into 4 strips, these strips can be placed/matched up against each column of students answer sheet and this is really easy for them to mark. Using this technique I have marked a full class of sheets in about 5 mins or so.
Another way to use this resource them would be to do them one/two columns/operations at a time and cut the time allowed.

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

CLUES are on a separate sheets.
Find nearly 200 Star Wars Characters over the 3 puzzles.
These are reasonably difficult because of the strange names with unfamiliar spellings and letter combinations.

The numbers are written with standard index form/scientific notation
to make them easier to read and understand.
While trillion is an incredibly large number, and the one that is the highest that some people will know about, there are actually many numbers that are larger than it.
This poster shows names from Thousand to Googol and a few extra of note.
