I love resources that ensure all pupils are able to access & feel confident within lessons. It makes me sad when a pupil feels stressed because they don't get it. I love hearing a pupil say "I am on it miss". All resources for main part of lessons are differentiated to 3 if not 4 levels of progress. Starters are mixed ability so that I can get pupils to feel confident in areas they struggle on. Any queries please email me; shacostello@gmail.com

Reverse problems volume of a cylinder

(30)
I wanted pupils to solve problems from the onset on volume of a cylinder so we did 3 MWB problems on 'normal' find the volume of a cylinder then I gave them this to do. Red is the easy one and they work down the page in pairs to aim to get to green in each section. Hope it is useful.
Christmas Quiz (Chrismaths Quiz :))

Christmas Quiz (Chrismaths Quiz :))

(1)
Attached is a basic PPT for a lower ability class in KS3. It goes through number facts and a movie at the end of each round. Pupils are placed into groups - no more than 4 per group as people start to disengage, you can give each pupil a job to ensure all are working. All should have working out paper. This is a great way to encourage group mathematical discussion and pupils working together. 4 rounds - 5 questions each and the best team with the most points at the end wins a maths piece of equipment. Q4 is the same on all rounds as it was something my class found difficult, some serious misconceptions around adding unlike terms in maths.
