Online multi-player bearings game

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)

Trigonometry Tangent (tan) only Crossnumber

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)

Factorizing Quadratics Puzzle

Factorizing Quadratics Puzzle

Students factorise and expand quadratics to fill in the blanks on the table, including some non-monic quadratic expressions and the difference between two squares. This makes an engaging and challenging task, as it includes: - Finding common factors in different quadratics - Self-checking as the answers are given and students only need to find which position they go in. - All the different types of quadratics students could be asked to factorise/expand at GCSE.

Probing Questions on Estimating the Mean from Grouped Data

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: "Rich task: Finding the mean from a grouped table discovery"

Unit: Loci and Constructions

Unit: Loci and Constructions

I have designed this pack of 6 lessons in the style of the Maths Assessment Project from the Shell Centre. Because of that, they contain many opportunities for AfL built in, opportunites for active and constructive discussion, and rich, open tasks. Here is a brief overview of the content and activities: Lesson 1: - Initial Assessment (test) – marked to diagnose prior knowledge and set specific tasks for improvement. - Video demos on constructions of triangles. Pause and explain the videos as students follow the steps. - Class discussion about an impossible triangle. Lesson 2: - Set DIRT tasks from marking Initial Assessment or discuss common misconceptions as a group - Triangles Card Sort - students have to construct the triangles and sort them in to three groups: Impossible, Unique and Multiple possible triangles. - Discuss questions based on A03 Reason and Explain problems as a group. Emphasise different approaches and answers the students may have. Lesson 3: - Starter: Find a point exactly between A and B. Find two points that are 5cm from both A and B. - Perpendicular and Angle Bisectors, Point to a line video demonstrations. Students copy the steps from the demonstration videos then repeat the steps on their own. - Open construction challenges - Plenary – Discussion of strategies for difficult parts of the challenge Lesson 4: - Starter: Mark at least 10 points that are 5cm away from X. - Group discovery task designed to find the four main types of Loci seen at GCSE - Card Sort – Some found here: o https://www.ncetm.org.uk/resources/10771 o https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/loci-and-construction-review-6342861 o https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/locus-of-a-point-matching-exercise-11190166?theme=3 - Plenary: Group Discussion of Exam Q involving a combination of Loci Lesson 5: - Starter: Construction skills practice worksheet - Exam Questions done on Mini WhiteBoards - Exam Questions done on sheet – Recommend this booklet - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/loci-booklet-questions-and-answers-11379556?theme=0 - Plenary: Create your own question for a shape Lesson 6: - Starter: Create a loci question for your partner; answer your partner’s question - Progress check - Similar to Initial Assessment, designed to demonstrate progress as well as identify any remaining misconceptions - Students Peer Mark with helpful comments - Show of hands on Learning Objectives.
