This is the first 55 pages of a 2 booklet resource that can be purchased from the TES site. If you like these pages then please purchase the two booklets for only £3. There are also many other FREE samples so download them and hand on to your colleagues. Both booklets follow the same learning sequence: writing numbers, counting to 5, counting to ten, numbers to twenty, recognizing smaller and bigger numbers, simple addition to ten, subtraction with numbers less than ten, addition to twenty and subtraction with numbers less than twenty, beginner multiplication and division by describing groups of objects in rows then using the diagrams to learn simple multiplication and division. The first contains 94 pages and the second contains 120 pages. I have used Booklet A as a class workbook and Booklet B as a follow up homework book. The booklets contain parallel work so that the homework being set is at the same level as the class work being set that week.Everything is there for the teacher. No need to search for the next page in a learning sequence or to find a homework sheet.

This 208-page resource is designed to help support the teacher with lots of supplementary or homework pages. All the strands of the maths curriculum are covered to provide extra work to both reinforce or extend the normal maths lesson. This means students can extend, maintain or get a head start on future topics being taught. There are pages on Number, Measurement, Geometry, Algebra and Statistics. All the pages were originally hand drawn. This immediately makes them different to all the existing computer-generated pages that students are used to. The goal for each page was to have different sorts of activities such as basic practice, and puzzle but to try and present each in a student friendly way that makes them want to do the whole page. These are not just time fillers but are structured and fun activities designed to stimulate and challenge the learner. There is a FREE 84-page sample that gives you an idea of the layout. The pages in the sample contain the arithmetic pages. If you like these pages, then why not purchase the two books. Also visit my shop, download the other free sample books and pass them on to your colleagues. Most are over 80 pages and cover maths work from year 1 through to year 8.

Year 9 Mathematics - Home Learning or School Supplementary Work

After 42 years of teaching I was asked to put together a collection of my best resources - pages that were guaranteed to keep students engaged and learning. This collection contains 158 pages of puzzles and equations to solve, expressions to expand and simplify and quick questions to answer. The sheets are bundled into 4 page sections which is ideal for 1 hour, 4 pages a day. Each of the 4 pages contain a variety of work from basic fractions, decimals and integers but as they progress these move more to applications taken from such things as cafe menus, bank interest rates, tax and insurance tables, engineering and other work related measurements and calculations. . What are the prices, what is the interest, what are the taxes paid, what is the insurance premium? All the strands are covered with number, algebra, geometry, measurement and statistics. There are interesting nomograms and solids to cut out, design and make, puzzles to solve, pictures to finish, patterns and measurements to make. A good rule I learned in teaching was to keep children busy. That only happened when you kept the work interesting and relevant. As a result I usually stuck to a formula, a series of quick questions that touched on past work. That got them settled. Then there was work around new concepts and finally an interesting puzzle or side project that helped them finish and want to come back tomorrow for more. All these pages have been used successfully in class. They work!

Numeracy Power Learning

(0)
Numeracy Power Learning is an updated 32-page workbook that covers addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in an interesting, innovative and engaging style. This comprehensive learning booklet can be used in Year 7 through to Year 9. Students become more aware of numbers, how they are related as well as little tricks to help make learning more interesting and fun. Can you quickly multiply by 10 or by 11? That is easy, but just as easy are multiplying 15 x 13, or 103 x 106 in your head. Similarly, students will be able to divide 48/91 or 29/143 in their heads after only a few minutes. Among all these fascinating tricks and tips are: addition pyramids, number hunts, methods of multiplication, beautiful numbers, adding over the tens, adding in parts, number bonds, partitioning, Fibonacci minutes, division tips, the twenty four challenge, four fours and consecutive number addition. Warning, this is not your old traditional school arithmetic book. Rather than spending long periods of time on one specific concept, each page contains 4 or 5 different tasks and approaches. This helps keep students inspired, engaged and active. They can learn how to divide by 91 in a few minutes, but they then move on to another activity. They will still revisit each concept in later pages. This helps cement the learning into their minds. The pages can be used for homework, during class time or for end-of-task reward activity. You can be confident that this comprehensive unit of work covers all the fundamentals needed to learn about arithmetic and numbers. However it offers much more. Your students will be challenged but will be eager to improve and complete each page. They will not only learn a tremendous amount of new and fun knowledge about numbers but will finish with a new confidence in learning.
