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

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.

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

A lesson including worksheets for estimating with measurements. Suitable for low ability KS3 but would also suit KS2. A really fun and interactive lesson which many of my students have enjoyed in the past - especially great for students who work well in small groups and while moving around the classroom.

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

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.

An activity where students must decide which graph is best to represent different types of data (comparing bar graphs, line graphs and pie charts). A great opportunity to help students get into the habit of justifying their answers with mathematical reasoning.

A presentation recapping negative and fractional indices and introducing solving equations with negative and fractional indices. Lots of example questions WITH ANSWERS!

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.

A presentation with interactive activities on averages from grouped frequency tables.
Also includes an extension worksheet on interpreting data from grouped frequency tables.

A presentation introducing changing the subject of a formula at an advanced level.
I used this with a Y11 Level 2 Further Maths group but it would be great for Y12 too.
Includes presentation, practice questions and a challenge at the end (deriving the quadratic formula - something I didn’t do until I got to university but my Y11’s did great!)

A presentation and worksheet introducing matrix transformations of points.
The worksheet is particularly useful as it will help students in future to help identify the relationship between the matrix and the geometrical transformation.
I used this with Y11 Level 2 Further Maths students but would be great for Y12 too.

A presentation demonstrating how to solve trig equations and deriving and using trig identities (s/c=t and c2+s2=1).
I used this with a Y11 Level 2 Further Maths group but it would be great for Y12 too.

A presentation introducing students to the concept of upper and lower bounds.
Includes worked examples, problem solving questions and differentiated practice questions.

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

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.

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 "pick and mix" 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.

A problem solving worksheet using different skills with decimals. Good for assessing understanding as students must explain their reasoning.

A worksheet on drawing pie charts with step-by-step instructions

A resource for teaching or revising addition and subtraction of decimals. Includes a section to be done on whiteboards, animated explanations for different situations, practice questions and problem solving question to finish.

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