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 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.
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.
Cancelling ratio and turning a statement into a ratio.
I think this one was a copy of an activity on the NCETM website that I tidied up a little. Match up the sets of four cards and colour in the beads to that ratio.
Calculate the area of wall that needs painting on these buildings. Answers included though they are a little complicated to read:
The three numbers on the right are the wall, windows and doors, final answer.
The rest of the numbers are the various parts labelled according to the type of shape they are.
The trouble with matchups when dealing with factorisation is that pupils can just expand the bracket side instead. This way eliminates that possibility, well unless they want to consider every combination I suppose.
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.
