Lesson starting with finding averages from a list of numbers, moving to finding mean from a table to the challenge of finding estimated mean. Presentation goes through this with students then there is a differentiated worksheet for students to complete. There is a plenary activity that I usually do in silence for the students to reflect on what they have learnt in this lesson. There are three sections looking at each of the 3 different elements of the lesson. Then get them to check their answers through peer assessment.
This differentiated lesson looks at angles on a straight line, angles at a point and angles in a triangle. The worksheet is split into essential, excel and challenge. The challenge section looks at students combining angle facts that they have learnt. Answers are provided and there is a singing plenary to finish with. In this, students are to write the correct answer on their mini whiteboard and then it will play part of glee for the students.
Differentiated lesson on cumulative frequency. You can either print the booklet for students to complete or you can print the questions on coloured paper (green, orange, red) and put them in plastic wallets for students to complete using their mini whiteboards. They can move around the classroom answering the questions. The reflect on your learning is for the students as a plenary to check understanding.
Differentiated lesson looking at the basics of solving. The lesson starts with one step equations building up to two step equations and then solving with brackets. There is a differentiated worksheet that is coloured into green, orange and red on the three levels of challenge. Then there is a 'singing plenary' that students complete on their mini whiteboards to say which answer they think. If they get it correct that oart of glee will play for them.
This activity is aimed at lower ability students or younger years. There is a lesson with differentiated activities for students to complete. There is also a differentiated dominoes set that can be printed out and then students can play. These are categorised into green, orange and red, red being the hardest. There is also a singing plenary at the end of students to complete on their mini whiteboards. If the students get the answer correct, then it will play part of family guy for them.
This differentiated lesson looks at 4 operations of fractions. There is a powerpoint and GCSE questions with answers for students to complete. The questions are differentiated with students being able to start where they want to.
Differentiated lesson looking at finding the nth term and the challenge finding terms in a sequence. There are questions for students to complete on their mini whiteboards and also a 3 level differentiated worksheet for the student to complete. This can then be peer assessed as the answers are on the next slide. The plenary is a singing plenary that students complete on their mini whiteboards and then part of the simpsons plays for students.
I have found that students struggle to know the difference between pythagoras and trig. So this lesson is designed to help students know the difference. There are four levels of challenge. Green- just pythagoras, orange- trig, red- pythagoras and trig and purple- combining the two. Students really find this lesson helpful to knowing when to use which.
This resource is good for a range of different ability of students. The lesson goes through how to complete a variety of solving equations and then there is a differentiated slide for the students to complete. Green questions are the easiest, orange are the middle, red are the challenge and the purple are the super challenge. The answers are also available. There is a singing plenary activity also. The singing plenary is done by students on their whiteboards and then if they get the correct answer, then it plays part of glee for them.
This resource is made for students doing the new GCSE foundation spec. There are three levels of challenge with each level of challenge having a worded question to complete also. The answers are provided too. A really good revision tool to help students practice different skills and learn where each section will be around in their exams.
This resource is aimed at lower ability students or students seeing expanding double brackets for the first time. There are essential and excel stickers that can be made to give to the students. The main activity is a match up activity that works really well if printed on different coloured card (essential-green, excel-orange, challenge- red and the answers in blue). Students can then match up the answers and the observer or the teacher can easily see who is on which level. The blue answers have a one mark answer (not simplified) and a two mark answer (simplified) to again differentiate between the students. The answers are also attached. The plenary is a singing plenary (frozen), the students use their mini whiteboards to give answers, if the answers are correct, then part of frozen will play to them.
This lesson is aimed at lower ability students or students that have not done rounding before. There is a complete lesson, with a main activity. The best way to do the main activity, is to cut the 'post if notes' and either stick them in groups (essential questions together, excel questions together etc) around the room, or put them in piles around the room. Students then get an answer grid that they fill in when they pick up a question and answer it. Students need to check what question number they are answering and which level of challenge to make sure they answer in the correct box. There is a tip sheet that can be printed and again put around the room for students wanting to complete to 1sf. Answers are provided and students can write a strength and target following on from that. There is a singing plenary to finish with. This is where students are asked a question, they are to answer it on their mini whiteboards, if they get the answer correct, part of family guy will play.
Aimed at lower ability students or students seeing factorising for the first time. There is a lesson for the students and then a 'post it note' activity for students to complete. This can be done in a variety of different ways, but I but the post it notes in essential, excel and challenge piles and then students can come and collect the questions as they need them. They fill in the answer grid with the level of challenge and question number. Answers are also provided. There is a singing plenary to finish with and this is where students answer the questions on their mini whiteboards and when they get it right, it plays part of Glee for them.
This resource is a bank of BIG (brain in gear) activities to start the lessons. I have attached an excel spreadsheet detailing all the different types of questions that each slide has. Each slide has the answers and 4 questions. The final question is a challenge question which is meant to push the students.
Differentiated lesson for a low ability class looking at angles on a straight line and in a triangle. The smart board goes through how to answer the questions and gives some for students to complete on their mini whiteboards. Differentiated worksheet for students to complete with answers. The plenary activity is a 'singing' plenary, where students are presented with a question to complete on their mini whiteboards and then it will play part of glee if students get it correct.
Differentiated whole lesson on solving inequalities. There is a lesson that goes through how to solve inequalties with questions to complete on mini whiteboards. Then there is a match up that is differentiated in difficulty. If you print them on different coloured paper shows clear differentiation. I usually go for green for essential, orange for excel and red for challenge. Blue are the answers. And then a 'singing' plenary to finish with. Students to answer the question on their mini whiteboards and then music plays.
Differentiated lesson on complex angle problems. Lesson looking at calculating missing angles and giving reasons. There are two booklets with answers for students to complete. Also a 'singing' plenary at the end for students to complete. This is to be done on mini whiteboards and students produce the answer and then it will play part of mamma mia.
Differentiated histograms lesson. Essential questions where students are to find the frequency density, excel questions where students find the frequency density and draw the histogram. Challenge questions where the students have to work backwards to find missing frequencies. The students have handouts that they can use to stick in their books instead of drawing it out themselves. There is a plenary question that is an exam question. There are also success criteria for the lesson so that students understand where they need to get in the journey of the lesson.
