Complete lesson on the topic of 'Waves' introducing light, moving onto a simplified and animated diagram of a solar eclipse. Lesson objectives: Objective 1: To describe how light interacts with materials Objective 2 : To state the speed of sound Objective 3 : To state the positions of the Earth, Moon and Sun during a solar Eclipse Optional video included to add interest and help students remember the difference between a solar and lunar eclipse.
Ratio and proportion lesson, this resource can be used to introduce students to the topic. It covers the differences between 'ratio' and 'proportion' using a counter activity. In addition there is a visual animation, where orange squash is made up. This never fails to engage students! Included in the pack: Lesson Powerpoint Worksheet Extension questions Lesson plan Cut and Stick sheets (counter activity)
Worksheet allowing students to practise marking probabilities on the probability scale. Scaffolded version also included for lower ability students. Opportunity for students to also write the fraction and worded probability of each event, to support them becoming fluent with the language of probability.
Full lesson with starter and three clear animated examples of how to find the reverse mean. Differentiated activity, with prompts to support students initially.
Fully differentiated, scaffolded worksheet on finding the area of semicircles and quarter circles. Scaffolded calculations included for lower ability students, to increase their confidence, slowly building up to the final challenge involving no scaffolding and compound shapes involving circles. Suitable for all abilities and mixed ability classes as students can begin from different starting points (including SEN). All answers included for students to self/peer assess their work.
Using problem solving and worded questions, this lesson introduces substitution and then moves onto rearranging formulas. This can be split and taught as two separate lessons.
A comprehensive lesson that takes students through each conversion, with examples and questions throughout. The final task allows students to improve fluency by filling in the gaps of a conversion table or those that have mastered the topic to develop their problem solving skills through worded problems. Answers included for self/peer assessment. This can be split over two lessons or adapted to one lesson, depending ability.
Ideal Substituting into a formula lesson for year 7 (high ability) or as a recap lesson for other years. Starter to check prior algebra knowledge and extension task included.
Suitable differentiated activity for introducing the topic of ‘percentages of an amount’ with challenge questions. Especially good for visual learners.
Worksheet with scaffolded calculations, to support students in working out the volume of a cylinder. Red and Amber worksheets, where the radius or diameter is given. Suitable for lower ability classes, can be used as a extra support in mixed ability classes and has been used successfully with SEN classes. All answers are provided for students to self/peer assess their work.
Fully differentiated lesson introducing renewable and non-renewable energy resources. Short engaging video (under 3 minutes). Worksheet included containing all of the lessons resources. Match up exercise (no scissors needed!) also included within the worksheet. Students fill in the blank boxes from the paragraphs on the board. Alternatively the activity could be adapted to be cut and stick. Exam style questions also included as a plenary. All answers included for students to self/peer assess throughout the lesson.
Arc Length and Area of a Sector lesson series. This resource can be used to introduce students to the topic. Differentiated questions and engaging starters (to check prior knowledge) are present for each lesson. Included in the series is a problem solving lesson, these slides can be used independantly or can be inserted into the existing lessons as an added challenge for higher ability classes. Included in the pack: Lesson Powerpoint Worksheets & Worked Example Handouts (to save lesson time, students can stick the examples into their books) Lesson plan
Complete lesson bundle containing: One lesson re-capping solving equations Three lessons introducing solving inequalities and displaying them on a number line. Problem solving tasks and worded problems included as think, pair, share activities in order to prepare students for the content of the new revised GCSE curriculum.
Complete introduction lesson to functions and function notation, with fully differentiated questions for each task. Answers provided for self/peer assessment for all tasks. Real life aspects shown to students to boost engagement and provide discussion opportunities. Used as an interview lesson and had positive feedback, was offered the job. Complete lesson plan included (timings can be adjusted to suit your timetable) with common misconceptions highlighted in the plan. Lesson Objectives covered: Beginner: To be able to solve worded problems using a function machine Skilled: To be able to substitute into f(𝑥) given 𝑥 Expert: To be able use mapping diagrams, understanding the relationship between the range and domain of a function.
This complete lesson introduces students to parallel and perpendicular lines and the properties of 2D shape. Students can annotate their shapes (by printing out the shape slide and using as a handout). Perimeter of 2D shapes is then explored using a fully animated, worked example.
Complete lesson for teaching the topic of "Dividing Fractions". Starter, animated examples included and main differentiated activity (with worksheet) included. Questions start from basic division to reasoning and GCSE style questions. Answers included for self/peer assessment.
A full lesson for teaching "finding a fraction of an amount". Animated examples included and maze activity, which engages students much more than simply giving them a set of questions to complete. Answers included for self/peer assessment and then the lesson moves onto worded problems.
Complete lesson covering the features of straight line graphs, plotting straight line graphs, then extending students knowledge by showing them how the point of intersection of two or more lines represents a solution (leading to solving simultaneous equations graphically).
Introductory cylinders lesson, encouraging students to 'discover' the formula for the surface area of a cylinder. This encourages mathematical reasoning by teaching for a much deeper understanding. Problem solving 'extension' questions are built into the lesson for differentiation.
