Venn Diagrams are a more recent addition to GCSE Maths and the new 9-1 syllabus. This popular resource is an excellent introduction to sorting numbers into Venn diagrams (with categories such as ‘Factors of 12’, ‘Prime Numbers’, ‘Multiples of 3’ etc) and then leads onto calculating probabilities based on the Venn Diagrams i.e. ‘What is the probability that the number chosen is more than 5 but not a multiple of 3?’ The resource contains… A worksheet sorting numbers into Venn Diagrams An extension task where students have to write their own categories Two worksheets where students have to complete a Venn Diagram and calculate probabilities An extension where students have to write their own probability questions This resource is ideal for recapping factors, multiples, primes and square numbers and a great way to introduce Venn diagrams to prepare students for problems on set theory.

Adding Fractions By Colouring

(1)
When just given numbers, adding fractions can be difficult for some students to comprehend. ‘Adding Fractions by Colouring’ is a resource where students shade in two fractions, add the segments together and then write down what fraction is shaded in the resultant fraction. It is ideal for KS2 and low ability KS3 students. This resource contains two worksheets… Worksheet 1 - Adding fractions with the same denominator Worksheet 2 - Adding fractions with different denominators (students take 1/2 to mean colour in 1 out of every 2 parts) This is an excellent resource for visual learners and for students to gain an understanding for why we add the numerators but keep the denominators the same.
