Volumes of cuboids and triangular prisms (self marking)

(6)
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.

Factors and multiples (colour in)

(2)
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.

Number line for the classroom

(1)
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.

Volume of pyramids and cones (self marking)

(1)
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.

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.
