Secondary maths teacher, quiz maker, display doctor...

A learning mat I produced to be laminated and out on all desks to give students a first place to look for help. Works well to encourage independence.

Useful end of topic summary test + answers. Complete with marking grid to give students easy to read feedback, tips for improvement and extension work.
Great for showing comprehension, then progress if students are given time to make correction or attempt the extension based on teacher feedback.
Test and marking grid documents are repeated to be printed A5 to fit in maths books - but can easily be altered if necessary.
In this test:
Simplify surds
Simplify and add/subtract surds
Multiply a single bracket with surds
Multiply a double bracket with surds
Rationalise the denominator of a simple fraction
Rationalise the denominator of a harder fraction
Answer to the extension q:
Using Pythagoras: a^2 + b^2 = c^2
(√3)^2 + (2+√5)^2
3 + (2+√5)(2+√5)
3 + 4 + 4√5 + 5
12 + 4√5
Then:
(√2 + √10)^2
(√2 + √10)(√2 + √10)
2 + 2√20 + 10
12 + 2√20 (2√20 = 2 x √4 x √5 = 2 x 2 x √5 = 4√5)
12 + 4√5
So it is a right angled triangle.

A fantastic eye-catching maths display to show the rules and methods for TRIGONOMETRY. Really stands out on the wall and has proved really useful for my classes as they are getting to grips with the basics of trigonometry.
Included is:
Title
All lettering for the right-angled triangle rules
A right-angled triangle with labels (I printed the triangle on A3)
SOHCAHTOA formula triangles
Sine/Cosine rule

A simple and engaging display based on the qualities of a resilient learner.
Speech bubbles for the main qualities and large colourful letters for the title.
Also included is my original design of CAPTAIN PI, the maths superhero!

A great activity to engage students and build both their mathematical ability and confidence, based on Kagan cooperative learning.
Students have a card each and move around the room asking the question on their card to other students. The answer is also printed on their card so they can see if their partner has the right answer. If needed, they can use their understanding to coach their partner towards the right answer. Once both students have asked their question they trade cards and move on so each student has a variety of questions that they are asking to others.
This activity involves simplifying algebraic expressions.

An original and fun interactive quiz suitable for all high school students.
Engaging rounds, fun pictures drawn by me, sound effects and more! I've been making these quizzes for years now and the students really love them!
The them this time is summer holidays so all the rounds are linked to that.
Round 1 - Geography - name the country from the capital city. Capital cities appear on a n airport departure board and the student shave to name the country.
Round 2 - Celebrity Picture Round - Students have to identify photos of celebrities obscured by sunglasses.
Round 3 - Movie Round - clips of recent movies play in the style of in-flight entertainment and students have to name as many movies as they can. They might want this video playing twice as it goes quite quick!
Round 4 - Travel Picture Round - A cartoon version of me appears in photos of famous tourist destinations around the world and students have to name the country that they're in. I'm wearing some visual clues for the harder ones!
Round 5 - Music Round - clips of recent popular songs play and students have to name the song and artist.
All this is themed around a summer holiday with pictures and sound effects to make the whole quiz fun and engaging. It's timed to last about 50 minutes but can be stretched out if necessary or likewise split up and used as separate rounds at different times.
Enjoy, and have a great summer!

A fantastic 'Logic Puzzle Trail' display that looks good and can be used in corridors or classrooms for group activities or competitions. The activity features a maths superhero of my own creation, CAPTAIN PI! (Yes I know I'm a geek!), His trusty sidekick Theta the Dog and their nemesis, Dr Surd!
Loads of logic puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty (complete with solutions!) and pictures to go with each one to make the display more eye catching. You could add different pictures if you have some better ones.
Title letters that can printed out on coloured paper if desired.
I have also included character symbols so students can distinguish between the difficulty of each puzzle and a sheet of smaller identical symbols to go with each puzzle (the small circle next to each puzzle in the picture.
Easy - Level 1 - Theta the Dog
Medium - Level 2 - Captain Pi
Hard - Level 3 - Dr Surd
Also included are a sheet of Captain Pi's space boot footprints to lead students around the trail and add an extra eye-catching element to the display!
This display is in the corridor and I have used it previously as a competition for students to come up with solutions and submit to me for a prize draw. It could also be used in classrooms as a more scaled down version to start tasks and discussions. Fun and challenging!

An eye-catching maths display on PRIME FACTOR TREES including Venn Diagram method for HCF and LCM.
All numbers and speech bubbles to show how to use prime factor decomposition to find the HCF and LCM using a Venn diagram.
For the cover picture, a cut my own letters out of card but I have included some printable ones to make a complete resource. I have used little cartoon heads to show the descriptions but they could be put up without speech bubbles as just descriptions.
I printed the Venn diagram out A3 to make it stand out more and for the lines joining the prime factor tree I just cut strips of yellow and blue paper.
Enjoy!

Full resources for an eye-catching and informative maths display based on MEAN MEDIAN MODE & RANGE.
I've used the Beatles to get the info across (for no other reason apart from I like the Beatles!) but the resources can be easily amended so any characters could easily be used. I haven't included the pictures shown the photo for copyright purposes (I wasn't sure where the cartoon images came from) but they can be easily printed from google images.
Large letters for the title
Title of each section
Large simple descriptors
detailed speech bubbles describing the method
