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.

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.

Powerpoint is exported from the Notebook file so formatting isn't as good, I converted it so the content can be seen but feel free to tidy it up. Two lessons can be combined into one as needed.

15 questions with answers at the bottom including some red herrings. The question "what do you need to be able to use the sine rule?" has the answer "matching letters" when you put the correct letter to each question and read backwards. This just relates to the need for a matching side and angle when using sine rule as many of my pupils seem to think that one rule is for working out angles and the other for sides.

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.
