After downloading my first resource over nine years ago and receiving 93,000 viewings, I realised that the sort of resources I create seems to be what busy teachers want. Everything I make is tried and tested on my willing pupils and my aim is for everyone to enjoy and understand the topics I feature.

#### Interior angles of polygons

(28)
I made this Powerpoint presentation to show clearly how the interior angles of any polygon are calculated by dividing each polygon into triangles. My pupils already know that the angle sum of a triangle is 180 degrees.

#### Measurement - metric and imperial

(6)
The UK went metric some years ago but not everyone has had the memo! Distances are still measured in miles, market sellers sell their fruit and veg by the lb and most people measure their weight in stones - all very confusing for children who learn about measurement from an early age in school. This PowerPoint explains the history of some of the ancient measures as well as a look at their metric equivalents.
