#### Mental Maths Daily Warmup- Trickier Pack

What’s the best way to improve your students’ mental maths skills? … Practice!
Use these sets of ten questions daily to improve key mental maths skills. Read the ten questions to your class, followed by the answers.
“We start every maths lesson with these ten quick questions, not only is this brilliant practice, but it acts as a great settler - silent students within seconds of the lesson starting!”
Includes six booklets, each containing 48 sets of ten questions at the ‘trickier’ level. More than enough for the whole year! A free tracker grid is also included (trimmed, fits nicely stuck in the back cover of an exercise book).
At the ‘trickier’ level, the skills covered are:
Timestables (up to 10 x 10)
Multipliying/dividing by 10 and 100
Number bonds to 100
Percentages/fractions of an amount
Common powers and roots
Adding/subtracting with negatives
Using the order of operations
Timestables (up to 15 x 15)
Free sample available here

#### Finding Error Intervals (Bounds) + Answers

Suitable for higher (or more able foundation) level GCSE students. The main task covers writing error intervals for numbers rounded to any place value or significant figure. The task includes three different activities - so plenty of practice without the repetition. The follow up task introduces using bounds in calculations.
As with all my activities - answer sheets are included. I normally leave a copy at the back of the room for students to mark from as and when they need.

#### Short Division Help Guide

A simple, clear support sheet demonstrating a short division technique. Includes a step by step guide for division with and without carry-overs required. Followed by some questions to try (answers included to allow students to check).

#### Combined Transformations Puzzle Worksheet

An opportunity for students to practice the transformations skills required at foundation and higher tier level. Complete each transformation to solve the puzzle.
Click here for the answer sheet showing the completed puzzle.
I’d suggest giving students two copies of the worksheet- one for working and one for their final solution.

#### Combined Transformations Puzzle Answers!

A completed solution sheet for the Combined Transformations Practice Puzzle

#### Writing in Standard Form (+Answers)

Two tasks based on converting between standard form and ordinary form. As ever - plenty of practice without repetition.
In brief:
The code breaker task is designed as a practice task giving students plenty of opportunities to convert between standard and ordinary form. The apply task uses real examples of numbers in standard form, as well as interpreting calculator displays given in standard form.
Included:
Code Breaker Worksheet (Practice Task)
Code Breaker Answers
Apply Task Worksheet
Apply Task Answers
Skills covered include:
Converting from standard form to ordinary form
Converting from ordinary form to standard form
Correcting numbers incorrectly written in standard form
Using and interpreting answers given on a calculator (eg 20!)
The two tasks can be used to differentiate easily - have the students who are more competent move straight onto the apply task. Separate answer sheets are included, I normally display this at the back of the room and have students check their work as they see fit.

#### Real Area (+ Written Multiplication)

An exciting consolidation to any series of lessons on area (although this could easily be used as an introduction lesson too).
In brief:
Students are asked to order a series of photos in ascending order of area, before making estimations of the distances involved and then reordering. Finally, using the real values, calculate the areas and compare the actual order to their guesses.
Included:
Notebook lesson file
Photo cards
Full set of worksheets
Skills covered include:
Estimation of lengths from real world examples (using clues from the photo cards)
Calculating the area of rectangles and triangles
Using written multiplication methods
I have used successfully with KS3 or foundation level KS4. This can be easily differentiated by removing some of the distances given in the tables in task one, or including additional photos (such as the circular O2 arena).
I have used one of the buildings in our school, I’d recommend swapping that photo for a landmark local to your school.

#### Circle Theorems: Collective Memory Task

An exciting consolidation (or introduction) task on nine circle theorems required for GCSE maths.
For information on how a collective memory task works click here
Included:
Poster containing diagrams and descriptions for nine circle theorems.
Two possible answer sheets, differentiated by the amount of information given (of course - you could just give your students blank sheets to start).

#### Rounding Practice Worksheet (& Answers)

A mix of rounding skills practice questions, suitable for a KS4 recap lesson, but could easily be used at KS3.
In brief:
Students work through four different tasks designed to recap and review key skills in rounding.
Included:
Practice Task Worksheet
Practice Task Assessment
Skills covered include:
Rounding to the nearest ten, hundred or thousand
Rounding to the nearest decimal place
Rounding to the nearest significant figure
A separate answer sheet is included, I normally display this at the back of the room and have students check their work as they see fit.

#### How To Multiply: Multiplication Help Guide

A simple, clear support sheet demonstrating multiplication using the column method.
Ideal for use in class where you need to give extra support to a few students.

#### Bounds (Error Intervals) - The Towering Inferno

A complete lesson designed to give students the opportunity to practice the use of bounds (error intervals) in a ‘real’ life context - The Towering Inferno.
The lesson slides include a link to a clip of the film to show to students, as well as the solution to the problem.
The task cards contain the problem and all the information required (as well as a few additional facts).
