Great resource to allow students the opportunity to check their understanding of key algebraic terms. It also allows students the chance to see if students understand the difference between an equation and an expression.
There are also stretch and challenge questions to determine deeper understanding of the topic.
This is an activity I produced to support students with their ability to draw conclusions using a range of information. Students were put into groups of 3/4 and were given a wallet (which were bought in bulk online for about £1.50 each). Inside each wallet were clues as to who the owner was. I included things like (fake!) bank cards, receipts, gym membership, phone number, business cards, (fake!) money etc. The idea was that students had to profile and describe the person who had lost their wallet and explain why they had made that decision.
The next main task was to reverse this activity. Students were given the profile of a person and then had to come up with 10 items that they think would be in the wallet of their person. The idea was that later on students in other groups had to profile their person based on the items they had chosen.
This was a lovely activity and students were fully engaged throughout.
18-page booklet, with a further 18-pages of solutions, 10 mini retrieval quizzes with worked solutions as well as 3 assessments which can be used as exam paper practise, worked solutions and a set of 6 quizzes. All of these resources can be used alongside the Udemy course ‘Mathematics in Design and Technology’, a course dedicated to supporting teachers CPD in embedding mathematics in D&T which can also be studied by current GCSE students https://www.udemy.com/course/mathematics-in-design-and-technology/?couponCode=XMAS20
Students compete against each other in order to get a complete row going left to right in this Maths GCSE revision activity. Students label each other A and B. If students get the question correct when it is their turn they can initial on the hexagonal sheet (last slide). If they get it wrong it goes to the other person. This is a wonderful revision activity based on GCSE grade D-B (New GCSE grade 4-5) to actively engage students. This would be great for both within lessons or during revision days.
An 18-page booklet full of mathematics questions, along with 18 pages of solutions, as well as a set of 10 mini retrieval quizzes with worked solutions produced for Design and Technology. Also suitable for mathematics lessons. The worksheets correspond to videos in the Udemy course ‘Mathematics in Design and Technology’ (the ‘play’ symbol on each page is the name of the video(s) the questions link to).
These resources are ideal for teachers of Design and Technolgy and Mathematics. The Udemy course has many model solution videos as well as videos from Design and Technology experts sharing their expertise. The course is ideal for teachers of design and technology, mathematics, numeracy coordinators as CPD and has also been designed for students to complete as online learning. The course videos and these worksheets can be used together as online learning.

Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
Area of a Circle
Averages and Range
and many more.
A set of 3 Mathematics in Design and Technology assessments along with model solutions, perfect for KS4 classes as exam practice. There are also a set of six KS3 quizzes focusing on topics such as percentages, averages and range, FDP and rounding with solutions. These have been designed to support the Udemy course ‘Mathematics in Design and Technology’ which can be found here https://www.udemy.com/course/mathematics-in-design-and-technology/?couponCode=XMAS20
A series of four worksheets which are great for a series of lessons on equations, expressions, understanding what a coefficient is, simplifying expressions etc. I produced these worksheets as a series of resources to be used on a weekly basis as cover whilst I delivered the algebra content. There are also number questions for students to complete as well as a series of stretch and challenge tasks to deepen students understanding through mastery.
The resources are great for lessons or cover lessons and there is a nice visual (PowerPoint) that can be modified for each lesson.
Teaching students remotely is different to teaching in a classroom. This document considers questions to ask yourself, and discuss with others, when planning to deliver lessons remotely, drawing on a range of research.
You can see the accompanying video below where I discuss 12 of the main issues to think about when setting work remotely to support with learning.
The 12 chapters are:
Chapter 1 Start with the end in mind
Chapter 2 High Quality Explanations
Chapter 3 Assessing Learning
Chapter 4 Planning for Long Term Learning
Chapter 5 Anticipate the Unexpected
Chapter 6 Inter-lesson Planning
Chapter 7 Instructions and Modelling
Chapter 8 Feedback
Chapter 9 Provision for Disadvantaged Students
Chapter 10 Peer Support
Chapter 11 Differentiation
Chapter 12 Inclusive Remote Learning for SEND
