Mini-Murder Mystery - Non-Linear Graphs

Students are asked to plot quadratic, cubic and reciprocal graphs. Students are asked to find the turning points of graphs and describe other features. All this work is wrapped in an engaging murder mystery. Contains answers

Awesome Vectors Race Game (including vector addition/subtraction)

This is a very engaging and tactical game that can be played by 2-4 players. Students take it in turns to play a vector card to move their counter around the track. Once they get the hang of this they should start playing combinations of vectors to move around more quickly. Differentiated by outcome (students choose the difficulty of the combinations they play) and differentiated by task (make the game harder by only allowing 3 or more cards to be played at once. Students will get lots of practice adding and subtracting vectors, as well as multiplying them by scalar quantities.

Area and Perimeter of Circles

A collection of varied and differentiated resources on finding the area and perimeter of circles and compound shapes involving circles. They are aimed specifically at lower ability students, giving them more time to work on the topic and develop a deep understanding/mastery of the material. Includes: - structured/scaffolded worksheets for building confidence - a row game for paired work/peer assessment - a rally coach for paired work/peer learning - a code breaker for practicing the skills in an engaging way - 'skills network' for building connections with other topics More similar resources on other topics coming soon!

Solving Multi-Step Linear Equations

A collection of varied and differentiated resources on solving basic linear equations including equations with negative answers and brackets. They are aimed specifically at lower ability students, giving them more time to work on the topic and develop a deep understanding/mastery of the material. Includes: - structured/scaffolded worksheets for building confidence - a row game for paired work/peer assessment - a code breaker and connect 4 game for practicing the skills in an engaging way - 'skills network' for building connections with other topics - Correct the mistakes, problem solving questions and 'Always, Sometimes, Never' cards for developing a deeper understanding More similar resources on other topics coming soon!

Solving Equations involving Algebraic Fractions Puzzle (A/A*)

Puzzles to improve procedural fluency when manipulating and solving equations involving algebraic fractions. Ideal resource to stretch and challenge higher ability students. Differentiated with three difficulty levels, each including an optional extra challenge. Answers provided.

Code Breaker Puzzle Creator

I love code-breakers. They are a great way for students to check their own answers without them being able see all the answers right from the start. It also makes marking easy because for a whole lesson's worth of work you only check four or five words. This resource automatically creates a code breaker for any set of questions! Its really good for quickly making exercise book or worksheet questions instantly more exciting/engaging. Simply type in the answers for each section (Questions 1a-g for example) in the orange rows of the 'Setup' worksheet and click 'calculate now'. The answers in each section will be assigned a random word. Show students the 'Code Letters' worksheet (either on the board or printout) and they get a letter for each answer. You can check these against the words in the 'Answers' worksheet

Vectors Card Sort and Matching activities

These activities are designed to promote discussion and mathematical reasoning skills around vectors and vector addition/subtraction. The first activity asks students to work in pairs to match a resultant vector diagram to an expression like a + b. For extension, students show the vector addition visually and then write it formally for each card. The second activity asks students to sort cards that contain statements about combining vectors in to three columns (Always True, Always False, and Sometimes True) and justify their answers (again in pairs).

Rich task: Finding the mean from a grouped table discovery

Students will discover for themselves how to find the mean from a grouped table. They will then get lots of practice with it whilst trying to find the patterns in each puzzle in the collection. They are very rich tasks, with a low entry point (students only need to know how to find the mean of a set of numbers) and an extremely high ceiling (involving sequences and series). Very easy to differentiate for different abilities (either skip pattern 10 or add the brainbox questions). The task ends with a paired activity where students create their own patterns.

Multiplying and Dividing Decimals Worksheet and Challenge

Homework designed to be more open and investigatory on the topic of multiplication and division of decimals. Students will differentiate by outcome as they can choose to make easier or harder calculations. Ideal as an extension task

Comparing Fractions Lesson

Lesson designed to go deeper in to understanding how to compare fractions, looking at multiple methods for comparing them, as well as asking more rich questions. Would go well with my worksheet also on comparing fractions found here: https://www.tes.com/us/teacher-lessons/comparing-fractions-code-breaker-7510447

Graphing Linear Inequalities Spot the Mistakes activity

Simple spot the mistake activity on graphs of linear inequalities. Mistakes are: 1: x&lt;=2 drawn instead of y&lt;=2 2: x&lt;=2 drawn instead of x&lt;2 3: y&gt;2 drawn instead of y&lt;2 4: y&gt;=2x+1 drawn instead of y&lt;2x+1

Calculations with Time on Bus Timetables

Structured and unstructured version of a task that has you using a map of Bristol to complete and create bus timetables.

Trigonometry Tangent (tan) only Crossnumber

Missing sides and angles as well as a few harder questions only using tan (Since I tend to teach trig using only one ratio at a time). I totally copied this from dmarshall1988: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/trigonometry-crossnumber-tan-only-6378404 but I found his version to be unreadable (and not have the answers)

Online multi-player bearings game

Includes three main levels that require measuring bearings and working with different scales (and ends with a class race!) There is also a warm-up level (to give the idea of bearings) and an extension level introducing reverse bearings. The link is to the game, the word document is a guide (which also explains how to have the class race against each other)

Probing Questions on Estimating the Mean from Grouped Data

Estimating the mean from grouped data is one of those topics that all my students can do in lesson, but tend to forget in tests. Because it is quite an abstract process, students often learn the steps of the method without really understanding what is happening. These questions aim to remedy that. The idea is to get students to think about how the steps they are calculating relate to their final answer. This resource is a natural companion to another I have made, just search for: &quot;Rich task: Finding the mean from a grouped table discovery&quot;

Complete Unit: Probability

Includes: Introduction to probability and the probability scale Calculating simple probabilities Experimental probability (relative frequency) Expected Frequency Mutually Exclusive events and complementary probabilities Probabilities from two-way tables Tree diagrams Venn diagrams Conditional Probability Sample Spaces (possibility spaces) Includes plenty of differentiation, a variety of interesting (and fun) activities and thought provoking questions

(2017 A-level) Whole Unit: Exponential and Logarithms

Activities matched to the Pearson Edexcel book. All the resources that are referenced but not attached can be found here: http://www.resourceaholic.com/p/resource-libraries.html#Logs

Algebraic Manipulation Jeopardy

Game of Jeopardy including differentiated difficulty questions on the topics of: - Collecting Like Terms - Multiplying Expressions - Expanding Brackets - Factorising Expressions
