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

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.

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.

Solve the questions involving parallel lines to find what number goes with what letter then decode the acrostic to reveal the following message:
"the final mission tothe moon was apollo seventeen commanded by gene cernan with ron evans there was also a geologist by the name of jack schmitt the mission lasted twelve and a half days with the orbiter challenger docking with lunar module america aftersix days and three and a half hours"

Match the cards to create sets
Picture
List of edges, faces etc
Name
Net (extension sheet)
Presentation included for extra help

Two worksheets involving concrete examples of perimeters and areas

TES PICKS

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.

Create a set of top trumps
The first three are edges, vertices and Faces
The next is asking for the greatest number of sides for the shapes used on the faces (e.g a square based pyramid has a square and some triangles so the square has the most sides at 4)
The last asks for the total number of DIFFERENT shapes (so for the square based pyramid that would be two)
Extra cards can be given out so those that finish can deal with dodecahedrons or other unusual shapes
Powerpoint included for demonstration

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.

Colour each square using the colouring instructions at the bottom.
Each primary colour is a prime number
Secondary colours are made using normal convention (if the factors are blue AND yellow then the colour is green)
Dark colours use black
Light colours use White (e.g pink is light red)
Grey is black and white
Cut the sheets along bottom of grid and ONE side so you can stick them together
Page numbers are at the top so they can be quickly put together (they start in top left and work down the columns, six in each)
the original colour file is included so you can see what it should look like

Find the words in the grid
Ones that might be difficult:
quarter circle = QUADRANT
second rectangle = OBLONG (made of two squares)
arrow shape = ARROWHEAD

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.

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.

TES PICKS

Match the graphs to the expressions, factorisations and minimum points

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

Can you find the result of the race from the given clues of the six (or eight) cars and their numbers?

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.

for each card, add the fractions and use the decoder sheet to find the object that is either big or small.

Decode the questions to reveal different sports by considering the inequalities given. Bonus question can you spot the odd one out.
I tend to use these as a 'complete question and swap your question with a neighbour' so they are all doing a different question. As the lesson progresses more of them have answers to help those currently doing those questions.

The inequalities give the integers and each integer is equivalent to a letter on the number line. Can you decode the most dangerous sea creatures in the world.

TES PICKS

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

Each card has a set of substitution questions that need to be answered to decode the question at the top.
The class can then find the answer to their decoded question on the grid provided.
The answers to the questions can be displayed or printed.

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.

A bit dated now but might still be useful.
0-40 in both axes

Convert the recipes from Harry Potter.
