Top ten tests - Target 5

Top ten tests - Target 5

Full preview available at https://www.missbanks.co.uk/top-ten-tests These papers test skills that appear on foundation tier papers, aimed at students working at/towards grade 5. Each set of these papers test 10 skills at GCSE level. Each set has 4 versions to choose from with increasing levels of difficulty: 4 Green > 4 Yellow > 4 Red > 2 Blue For example, A green paper simultaneous equations question has the same coefficient of y. A blue paper simultaneous equations question is worded with a contextual answer. This allows you to build up students confidence and improve their skills at a pace appropriate for your class. There are worked solutions to accompany every paper. There is also a spreadsheet included for you to record your overall class scores and also question by question scores.

Pick 'n' Mix papers - Crossover

Pick 'n' Mix papers - Crossover

Full preview available at https://www.missbanks.co.uk/pick-n-mix-papers These are short GCSE papers aimed at grades 4 and 5. Each paper covers 6 out of 30 preselected grade 4 and 5 skills at random. Across the 10 papers, each skill is tested twice. There is also the same distribution of Number, Ratio and Proportion, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, Statistics and Probability as there is in the GCSE foundation exams. These are ideal leading up to the exam period once students have learnt all the skills and need to recap alot of skills in a short period of time. The papers are designed to be short enough to be completed and marked by students within a lesson or as part of a weekly homework. The front cover also provides space to encourage students to reflect on what they need to revise and key things they need to remember before their exams. There are worked solutions to accompany every paper (with mark breakdown). There is also a sheet included of which skills appear on which papers.

Same surface... different depth!

Same surface... different depth!

Here are my same surface different depth problems! Lots of students don’t read questions carefully enough and just assume what the question is asking them to do based on the basic information in the question. These problems aim to combat this. Each page contains 4 problems that, on the surface, appear the same (or at least very similar!) However each question requires different skills to solve. This means students have to read the question very carefully to deduce which skill they should be using. Enjoy!

Top ten tests - Higher

Full preview available at https://www.missbanks.co.uk/top-ten-tests These papers test skills that appear on higher tier papers. Each set of these papers test 10 skills at GCSE level. Each set has 4 versions to choose from with increasing levels of difficulty: 4 Green > 4 Yellow > 4 Red > 2 Blue For example, A green paper "factorise and solve quadratics" question would be x^2 + 7x + 12 = 0 A blue paper "factorise and solve quadratics" question would be 3x^2 - 3x = 8 This allows you to build up students confidence and improve their skills at a pace appropriate for your class.

Circle theorems (minimum 3 lessons)

Circle theorems (minimum 3 lessons)

This is (at least) 3 lessons worth of work on circle theorems. Lesson 1 - > Starter - Label the parts of the circle. Worksheet included and interactively move the answers to the right places on the board. > Comparison to angles in parallel lines. I like to introduce them as similar to angles in parallel lines in that they have to know what to look for and the statements if they are asked for reasons. Also that it can be simple or very complex. > A sheet for students to stick into their books that has all of the circle theorems on for them to refer to. This includes a few different representations of each circle theorem to show how different they can look. > A look at all of the theorems. Step by step on the board showing each of the circle theorems. You could have students doing this in their books before giving them the theorems. Also includes links to geogebra software for each theorem. > A worksheet on basic circle theorem questions + extension questions to get students used to identifying the correct theorem and using it. Full answers provided on the smartboard file. > Plenary - a look at spotting isosceles triangles in circle theorems. Lesson 2 - > Morgan's problem (this was given to me by one of my students!) Answer included. > 2 exam questions examples. Focus on showing clear working and writing on the diagram and giving correct reasons. > Key exam language. State vs Work out vs Give reasons > Exam questions. There are 2 booklets (I printed these as A5 booklets that students could stick into books) of exam questions. One is "easier" problems then there is a "more challenging" booklet if you are teaching grade 8/9 students. There is a mark scheme and worked solutions to the first booklet. The second booklet has the final answer in the back (so students can check their answer but will still need to show full working) and worked solutions also included. NB: I actually did this lesson over a double period and some of them still had to take work home to finish it off so this is alot of work! Lesson 3 - > Spot the mistake. Answers included. This covers some of the more common mistakes students make. > A chance for the students to try and prove the circle theorems for themselves - what do they know about the sizes of any of the angles? I printed the 5 sheets of the circle theorems with the additional lines drawn on on a double sided sheet of A4 and gave them 10 minutes to label anything they can. > Proof of circle theorems. Step by step each of the circle theorem proofs with full explanations for students to follow through. I printed the blank circle theorem proof sheets for them to stick in their book but you could save on printing and get them to copy it themselves. > Plenary - FMSP Problem - two circles. Full solution provided. ENJOY!

Combination of transformations

Combination of transformations

Complete lesson on combining transformations. Includes: > Starter - run the powerpoint and it will animate all 4 transformations at once! Discuss with students which transformation each one is showing and congruence. > 2 full examples on combination of transformations. Students have a worksheet to follow along with. Just click through the slides and each step of working will appear on the board. When it comes to the rotation, you can grab and rotate the tracing paper to show students how to do this. Also goes through identifying the overall transformation as a stretch activity. > I added in a worksheet I found on TES on combined transformations as the main activity of the lesson. > Mini review question on combined transformations. I get the students to complete it then I collect them in and give them feedback for them to stick into their books.

Harry potter probability

Harry potter probability

Teaching probability based around harry potter. My students found this a lot of fun, though I guess it depends on your class! The question that goes with the very last slide is 'Why isn't the probability of picking the snitch 1/4?'
