Ultimate Numeracy Skills Check-Up

Ultimate Numeracy Skills Check-Up

This is a huge, fantastic resource created to be used regularly as a starter to really boost students' confidence in their numeracy skills. The resource is created in excel to provide randomly generated questions for almost every topic on the numeracy curriculum. There are 37 sets of 10 progressively more difficult questions, covering topics from level 3 to level 8. As the questions are randomly generated, the resource can be used over and over again and the answers can be revealed through the toggle buttons. There's also a record sheet at the start that can be used to keep track of progress. Topics include: Level 3 Money - calculating change Ordering whole numbers Addition Subtraction Addition & subtraction across zero Division Fractions - making a whole Adding & subtracting fractions Level 4 Short multiplication Rounding to 10, 100, 1000 Multiplying & dividing by 10, 100, 1000 Short division Equivalent fractions Level 5 Adding & subtracting decimals Long multiplication Multiplying & dividing decimals by 10,100,1000 Multiplying decimals Dividing decimals Long division Simplifying fractions Mixed → Improper fractions Improper → Mixed fractions Fractions of amounts Adding & subtracting directed numbers Multiplying directed numbers Dividing directed numbers Simplifying ratios Order of operations Squares, cubes & roots Level 6 Percentage of an amount Decimal → percentage → fraction Fraction → percentage → decimal Adding fractions Rounding to decimal places Sharing in a ratio Percentage increase and decrease Multiplying fractions Dividing fractions Rounding to significant figures Level 8 Standard form → Regular number Regular number → Standard form

Graphing Equations Introduction

Graphing Equations Introduction

This resource works well over two lessons. Lesson one has a starter activity plotting co-ordinates and then introduces the students to lines parallel to the axes on the co-ordinate grid. There is then an activity drawing and naming lines parallel to the x and y axis. Lesson two has a starter using co-ordinates in all four quadrants. Following is the main teaching point; plotting an equation by first creating co-ordinate pairs from the equation. There is then an activity giving the students four equations to plot by themselves. Both lessons are aimed at students working at NC level 5.

Plotting Quadratics

Plotting Quadratics

PowerPoint presentation primarily aiming to give students practice plotting quadratic equations. The lesson however also encourages the students to first think how the next equation they are plotting differs from the first and then predict how its shape will differ on the graph. The lesson therefore also introduces graph transformations. Included are screen prints of the resulting graphs the students will plot. The lesson is also duplicated using cubic equations for the more able students.

Brain Trainer

Brain Trainer

A secondary mathematics starter activity. Pupils must begin with the starter number then perform the operations to arrive at a final answer. Questions are randomly generated so can be used time and time again. There are three levels of difficulty ranging from simple addition and short multiplication up to short division and fractional increase.
