Which of these could be the odd one out and why?

(7)
Great little activity for starters. Good for differentiation/mixed ability sets. I've tried to make sure that there is a reason every one could be the odd one out on each slide so that students can give more than one answer and/or more than one reason as well. Differentiated by outcome so allows students of different abilities to perceive the problem in their own way. I will update the resource with more variations over time so keep checking back and re-downloading.

Great investigation lesson on producing pentominoes and then completing puzzles with these. I highly recommend you spend the time (and money) having sets of the pentominoes copied and laminated and cut out for the puzzles. Enjoy!

Times tables weekly challenge - Levels 1 to 5

Times tables weekly challenge - Levels 1 to 5

(0)
These timetable challenges become gradually harder as students move up through the levels. I used these in intervention and had all students begin on level one and they could only progress if they could get everything correct in the ten minutes. We also use them in our dinner time maths club sessions as a bit of a weekly competition between students.

Top ten tests - Higher

(1)
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. 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.

The exact values of sin cos and tan

(0)
2 lesson introduction into the exact values of sin cos and tan 30, 45, 60 and 90. The first lesson aims to show students where the values come from and enables them to find the values for themselves. The second lesson shows them how to find the values quicker now that they know the 2 triangles. It also touches on why we need this - SOHCAHTOA questions without a calculator. http://www.missbanks.co.uk/single-post/2016/06/16/Exact-trigonometric-values
