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!

-Find 352 maths related words ( KS3 Vocab. list)
For wordsearches this is quite a challenge.
Hardly anyone has ever found all the words (even when they have taken home over an holiday period and arrived back saying it became a family activity) but a lot have said they enjoyed trying.
In class some have wanted to do it on their own, some in a small group. But it has worked best as a table activity where they work together an pool their answers.
I have also used it to just to find certain words from a small list of 10-20 that I have put on the board.

A follow on from my ‘SETS A , B and C’ resources where students have to use Pythagoras’ Theorem to check if the triangle has a right-angle.
22 questions over 2 worksheets (with some ‘scaffolding’) + ANSWERS
See other my FREE resources in this set

Notes: On worksheets 1-3 i have set the sector as part of a circle shown as a dotted line to remind students that a sector is a fraction of a circle.
There may also be some discussion over rounding everything to 1d.p. as in some questions it is probably not suitable.

10 worksheets with answers (as worksheet and as a list) - Difficultly increases from 1-1 to 1-10
ONE IDEA IS to cut them out into individual questions to they could be easily stuck into books so ALL the working out could be shown. Shuffle them up and distribute at random within the difficulty range
Even more difficult if made non-calc work!

A colourful FRACTION WALL in 4 sizes
**PRINT WITH A GENEROUS OVERLAP SETTING of at least 2 cm **
The default setting on PDF’s is only about 2mm
I have also included some tiling instruction for the large size poster. If possible print the tiles at A3
and use a guillotine to cut edges of each tile.

29 PYRAMIDS TO SOLVE
A more difficult version of NUMBER PYRAMIDS using FRACTIONS
Addition and subtraction of fractions/mixed numbers
some negative fractions/mixed numbers too

For Classroom display or pupil books.
in 5 sizes A1-A5
A5 black and white version for pupil/student books
If you print off as a tile poster there is a file with some tips.

As you are getting these resources for free can you PLEASE comment or follow as feedback will help me while I am developing resources,
If you have any suggestions for improving or developing other resources. Let me know

Solve by logic/reasoning or trial and improvement OR USE ALGEBRA
use as a worksheet or cut into strips or individual puzzles so each student gets a different question(s)
DIFFERENTIATE by giving students some of the numbers - see answers
Otherwise these are quite challenging.
A starting point could be giving out a blank grid and supplying the numbers and get student to fill in the numbers in the circles before trying to solve these puzzles.
Use the clip-art on your own worksheets or PowerPoints etc by overlaying text boxes. Use the questions/answers for the numbers.
I was only going to do 100 questions but ended up doing 1504 (94pages x 16puzzle per page) just to see if I could ,so sorry for the overkill!

A set of resources based on using GEARS.
For use in MATHS or PHYSICS
Gears 1: Identifying if gears turn clockwise or counter-clockwise
Gears 2A: Turning (Basic) - Turn one gear, how many time does the other gear turn?
Gears 2B: Turning (Advanced) - As above but more difficult
Gears 2C: Rotation Speed - One gear turns at a certian speed, what speed do the others turn at?
Gears 2D: Angle of rotation - What angle do gears have to turn through to make a pointer on a scale turn to a particular position?
Gears 2E: Lowest common multiple - How mantytime have you to turn a gear so they all return to their initial position>

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

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!

If you download please comment/follow so if the resource is updated I will be able to notify you.

I printed these on CARD and laminated them, other sets were printed on different coloured card
Remember to just print Page 1 or yo will print the example/instructions on page 2

Working in millilitres and litres and converting between each
a) colour amount given
b) state amount in jug
Use clip-art to create your own worksheets/PowerPoints - they are transparent PDFs so it is easy to draw a coloured rectangle behind to show liquid in jug

Work through Maze
Tally each symbol
Complete table
Use clues to deduce which elf used which symbol
Reasoning will need knowledge of:
basic inequalities
prime numbers
square numbers
cube numbers
