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

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 finding factors that forms the basis of factorising a quadratic expression. Or just for general factorising practice.

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.

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

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 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 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!
