Number line for the classroom

Number line for the classroom

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.

Volumes of cuboids and triangular prisms (self marking)

Volumes of cuboids and triangular prisms (self marking)

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.

Volume of pyramids and cones (self marking)

Volume of pyramids and cones (self marking)

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.

Perimeter area and volume of rectangles and cuboids- (spoons / matching game)

Perimeter area and volume of rectangles and cuboids- (spoons / matching game)

Spoons game: Look it up, there are loads out there but in a nutshell: in groups of four. need three spoons (any other item will do as well) try to make a set of four but passing one card to the left and receiving a card for the right. if you finish a set as secretively as you can grab a spoon when you do that everyone else tries to get a spoon too. person who misses out adds the next letter of SPOONS on their sheet. play continues till all but one have written spoons. they are the winner. can also be used as a simple matching activity.

Equivalent Percentages, Decimals and fractions- (matching game/ Dobble game)

Images taken from MrBartonMaths: https://classroom.google.com/u/0/share?url=https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/matching-fractions-to-decimals-snap-game-6042741 Two ways to use the resource matching: cut all the little squares and get the group to match into sets of four. Four cards are missing, complete them to make the sets. Dobble: Each larger card (a set of four smaller squares) has one matching image (they may be different but have the same value) Let me know of any errors I missed
