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.
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:
Cut and Stick sheets (counter activity)
Complete lesson on the topic of 'Waves' introducing light, moving onto a simplified and animated diagram of a solar eclipse. Lesson objectives:
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.
A complete, ready to teach lesson covering the unit of energy, energy stores and transfer and conservation of energy. Handout included for students to get straight to the learning and not have to copy lots of content from the board.
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.
A complete lesson for teaching the topic of Stem and Leaf Diagrams.
Differentiated starter to check students prerequisite knowledge of ordering numbers and decimals.
Examples for both standard and back to back stem and leaf diagrams included, to introduce each to students.
Worksheets included with answers on the PowerPoint, for students to self/peer mark all tasks.
Exit ticket plenary (these can be printed or displayed on the screen) as a final progress check.
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).
Plotting Linear Equations lesson, providing a sound introduction to the topic using an engaging starter activity, (spot the mistake) that re-inforces the importance of labelling the axis on a graph correctly. The lesson then moves onto the concept of substituting values into an equation. Then students are invited to explore the properties of a straight line equation.
The method is introduced and students are then given the opportunity to practise plotting linear equations using the differentiated activity sheets (answers provided on the PowerPoint for self/peer marking). - AfL
Plenary activity - Students return to the 'Big Question' presented at the start of the lesson to measure progress made. In addition to a self assessment activity, where students' can reflect upon their progress made during the lesson.
Included in the pack:
Worksheets (3 differentiated)
Exam style questions (Extension activity)
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.
Volume of Prisms lesson, this resource can be used to introduce students to the topic. It covers a variety of different prisms including trapezoidal and parallelogram prisms as an extension task for extra challenge.
Included in the pack:
Worksheets (including answers, which are also animated in the powerpoint)
Starter and think, pair, share handouts
This resource is fully equipped for the new GCSE curriculum with problem solving opportunities throughout.
It explores solving equations using function machines, then applies this to worded problems and a past paper question. Following this, the balance method is then explored (extra slides, which can form part of another lesson or used to show students this alternative method for solving equations).
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.
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:
Worksheets & Worked Example Handouts (to save lesson time, students can stick the examples into their books)
This lesson series introduces solving equations using the balance method progressing to unknowns on both sides, fractions and brackets).
Fully differentiated questions throughout and opportunities for think, pair, share.
Series of three PowerPoints that can be used as a complete lesson sequence for this topic.
'Simpsons style' single brackets spot the mistake plenary also included as a consolidation activity.
The starter covers the basics of how to correctly label the x and y axis (spot the mistake), then students are introduced to recognising linear equations.
Animated PowerPoint, demonstrating step by step, how to complete a table of values and plot the corresponding graph.
Differentiated worksheets included in this lesson bundle, with problem solving explorative questions, to encourage students to develop a deeper understanding.
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.
