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