I like to use interesting visuals, activities and ideas to get the class to practice and maybe, enjoy the subject.

Match up the isometric drawing to the net and calculate the surface area. After four examples can you draw the nets from the cuboids left and calculate the surface area for each. Can we speed up the process.

Plot the coordinates on a -20 to 20 grid

Matchup the cards. There are diagrams, ratio and descriptions. There are also four blank cards to draw on as each group should have four cards.

One has the 12 times table where as the other two have multiple trails where you keep adding the same number.

All the answers are there so marking is easy.
Use as a homework.
Cut them up to use as a matchup activity.
Have now included one with diagonals removed so Pythagoras can be practiced too.

Calculate the volumes of each of the shapes and check the answer is correct. Putting the letters in the order of the questions reveals a piece of advice
"A triangular prism is half of a cuboid!"
Oh, and its written backwards so they don't get it too early.

Tes Picks

Match the graphs to the expressions, factorisations and minimum points

If you answer the question one way you get a silhouette of an animal, if you answer it the other way you get a different animal. What are the two animals on each sheet (you need two copies)
I have been advised the gerbil isn't very good. Maybe try the others.

I created this number line for my classroom and several people asked for it so I uploaded it here.
It is a mixture of popular culture, logos and pictures to represent the numbers from -19 to 20.
There is a plan to make it -50 to 50 if there is enough call for it.

Can be used as a stand alone sheet or put together to spell a word for homework purposes using cut and paste.
NOW WITH ADDED ANSWERS

Set up a set of axis 0-40 in both x and y directions
Trace the lines to create a picture.
Start a new trail from each arrow.
Six characters from the Lion King. Answers are included to check.

A few worksheets involving areas and floorplans.

Work out the cancelled version of the fraction and the decimal equivalent.
Place them in the two way table, what do you notice about the four sections?

Tes Picks

Match up the various tables, graphs and charts into sets,
one or two of the cards are missing and will need to be recreated.

Work out the value of each angle to crack the code and reveal this message:
"At seven years old Rolihlahla Mandela became the first one of his family to go to school where he was given the name nelson because his teacher found his real name difficult his father died of tuberculosis when he was nine but he was able to complete his junior exams in two years not three"
It was created for the week that Nelson Mandella was freed.

Two worksheets involving concrete examples of perimeters and areas

pictures of various cones and pyramids, calculate the volume.
The answers are at the bottom along with some red herrings. If you assign the letters to each question then is spells out "one third of the prism" backwards
A couple of errors have now been corrected. The original still works but two answers were missing, I will leave it here as that in itself can be a challenge for the group if they know ahead of time.

Put the times into order smallest first to reveal a mathematical word (backwards)
Put them into order biggest first for the word in the right order

A simple activity to practice coordinates in four quadrants.
Each coordinate gives a letter that in turn spells a word.
What is the season connected with each of these words.
Use as a starter activity, a worksheet to consolidate learning or a homework that marks itself.

Can you work out the fraction of each colour on the flags. Some are easier than others.
