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.
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.
Decode the questions to reveal different sports. 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.
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.
Main activity, give the class the value of the three variables and play the game.
Other, Take two cards and class have to work out the value of the variables to make the one card unbeatable by the other.
