I am a KS3, KS4 and KS5 Mathematics and Computing teacher based in the Nottingham area.

#### Related Calculations

(0)
A couple of lessons on related calculations (e.g. if we know 4 x 6 = 24 what is 0.4 x 6?) Presentation is fully animated. Also contains worksheets with practice questions

#### Multiplying Decimals by Integers

(0)
A resource for teaching or revising multiplication of decimals by integers. includes a starter on multiplying numbers by a single digit, some example questions and worded problems.

#### Interpreting Data (Christmas Themed Lesson)

(0)
A really fun and unusual lesson using a piece of sheet music to collect data using a tally chart, interpret from a tally chart, present the data in a bar chart and pie chart and further interpret the data using a real-life question. Very enjoyable and no knowledge or prior understanding of sheet music needed. Also Christmas themed (the song used is Jingle Bells) so great for engaging students at that time of year.

#### Averages Memory Game

(0)
A resource for memorising the averages mean, median, mode and also range (the classic poem). Presentation is set up to cover up a few words at a time so students can learn it by heart. Works great getting them to recite it aloud. Also a few practice questions at the end.

#### Multiplication by a Single Digit (Short Multiplication)

(0)
A resource for teaching or revising multiplication by a single digit (e.g. 24 x 5, 128 x 3) . Was written for short multiplication method but could easily be adapted to other methods. Includes explanation, example questions and worded problems.

#### Direct and Inverse Proportion

(0)
A resource to teach or revise Direct and Inverse Proportion. Includes real-life questions, graphs, explanations, exam questions.

#### Coordinates, Shapes and Midpoints

(0)
A presentation with interactive activities on reading coordinates, plotting coordinates to form shapes, and finding midpoints of coordinates.

#### Measurements Bundle

(0)
A bundle of resources including reading measurements using scales, using measurements to estimate, units, metric conversions and problem solving. Great for early KS3 or late KS2.

#### Short Division (Bus Stop Method)

(0)
A resource for teaching or revising short division. Written with the Bus Stop Method in mind but could easily be adapted to other methods. Includes a starter, division rules, practice questions (for use with whiteboards) each of which has an extension, and RAG Test Yourself. Great differentiation throughout.

#### Square Numbers Investigation

(0)
A set of short investigations around square number patterns. A really fun lesson and works great if done with groups carousel-style.

(0)
Quick fact sheet on spreadsheets for mathematics (all they need to know)

#### Prime Factors & Factor Trees

(0)
A lesson on prime factors including a presentation and worksheet. The presentation is very interactive and includes a factor tree race (I have often asked students to come up to the front whiteboard to do this - they love it!) The worksheet includes lots of examples in 4 sections so can be easily differentiated.

#### Rounding to Estimate Worksheet

(0)
A worksheet for students to practice rounding to estimate (decimal places &amp; significant figures). Includes a helpful guide, practice questions and a problem solving question. A great in-lesson worksheet or homework activity.

#### FDP Bundle

7 Resources
A great bundle of FDP resources for KS3. Usual price £16 so a great offer

#### Averages Problem Solving

(0)
An activity to test students’ knowledge on averages (mean, median, mode) and range with some problem solving questions. Can be done as an interactive lesson where the first to find the answer / first one of a pair wins a point etc.

#### Surds, Rationalising the Denominator, Expanding Brackets, Factorisation and Difference of 2 Squares

(0)
A bit of a mash-up lesson revising Surds, Rationalising the Denominator, Expanding Brackets, Factorisation and Difference of 2 Squares and includes advanced practice questions on all of the above (up to A* GCSE level). I used this with a Y11 group who had completed the GCSE syllabus but were taking Level 2 Further Maths and it worked great as in introduction to concepts they had seen before but taken to the most advanced level. Lots of practice questions included.

#### Solving Simultaneous Equations - all methods including graphs

(0)
Two presentations demonstrating the different methods of solving simultaneous equations, including graphically.

#### Indices Introduction (A level - core 2)

(0)
An introductory presentation to indices for Core 2 A level mathematics. Includes a recap of what they should know already, the 4 main log laws with worked examples, and some questions to test themselves.

#### Converting Fractions, Decimals and Percentages (FDP)

(0)
A handy worksheet on converting FDP which reminds students of the method used to do each skill an some practice questions. Works great as a &quot;pick and mix&quot; i.e. the students choose which sheets to do depending on which skill they need to practice. Also includes a section on ordering decimals and an extension task.

#### Income Tax

(0)
Resource for teaching income tax. Works well if (before this lesson) you ask students to research Income Tax as homework an bring their findings. For activity 1 I gave each student a card with a job title and salary on it (easy to recreate or they could make one up themselves, or look it up if in a computer room or they are allowed to use phones). Also includes some interpretation and evaluation and an exam question plenary.
