(based on 282 reviews)

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

#### Volume of Prism Thoughts and Crosses

(22)
Learners play in pairs. Learners choose who goes first. Learners both answer the question. If learner 1 picks and gets it right they win. If they get it wrong and learner 2 is able to explain their answer then learner 2 wins the square. First person to connect four wins. This is a good way of promoting independence among learners and getting them to explain how they have got to their answer. Moves from basic prisms to compound prisms.

#### 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.

#### Calculate missing angles - KS3/ GCSE

(14)
Learners are given the opportunity to calculate missing angles on a straight line, around a point and in a triangle. Once they have achieved each there is a problem involving algebra to challenge their knowledge and understanding. My year 8s loved this.

#### Laws of indices RAG task - PPT

(11)
Laws of indices task moving from easy to new style problems. Pupils have to work backwards on problems particularly on the green activity. Used in both KS3 and KS4.

#### Missing angles involving algebra KS3/GCSE

(14)
Work in pairs. To play you must answer the question in each of the squares. If you get that question correct you can place your sticker over that square with the answer on it. The winner is the first person to get four questions correctly answered in a row vertically or diagonally. 12 questions involving basic to problem solving with algebra and angles. Answers included. Good to challenge lower ability sets on knowledge of angles and algebra but also good to stretch pupils who know their angles facts.

#### Area _ Volume of trapezium Thoughts and Crosses

(8)
Area of trapezium moving from basic to problem solving and then moving to volume of trapezium. Kids are in pairs and play against each other to get connect four. I make all learners write their full workings into their books. Learners enjoy the activity and it is great for discussion of where they got their answer from.

#### Calculate missing angles in a triangle - KS3/GCSE

(7)
Get learners in pairs or groups to discuss how we calculate a missing angle in a triangle. Then ask learners how we would use or knowledge to solve the problems involving algebra. When learners say form an equation remind them how to solve using the balance method. For this particular task we completed them on posters for a display to show the challenges we had worked on.

#### Tick or Trash solving equations involving shape

(5)
Learners work the questions out from the middle column. Learners complete working out in their book. The tick the answer they have right and trash the answer they have wrong. Learners then state who is better at solving equations. Learners do enjoy this and especially when its famous people they like.

#### Expanding brackets ( Red, Amber, Green)

(7)
Worksheet which allows learners to progress quickly. Moves from red after four questions correct but if struggling stays on red. I have given the answers out on the back on the sheet in some instances with classes that can be trusted worked a treat.

#### Simultaneous equations - Thoughts and Crosses

(7)
Learners play in pairs to try connect four in a row. Take it in turns when pupil x chooses a question both pupils do it in their book. Pupil x puts his name on that square then pupil y chooses a sum. We use all types of colourful post it notes and then display around the room. Occasionally we complete in pairs as a poster.

#### Tick or Trash simultaneous equations

(6)
Learners work on the questions from the middle column in their book. Once they have the answer they tick the correct answer and trash the wrong answer. Then learners state who is better at simultaneous equations. Sometimes I add in two of the wrong answers in the same question to test learners are completing them correctly while also checking their understanding.

#### 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.

#### Collecting like terms = prove to me activity

(3)
I wanted to see if pupils really understood collecting like terms and forming expressions. Activity based around using as a worksheet or MWB task so that you can clearly see the answers of all pupils. Really effective and pupils understand task perfectly. Has been used with Ks3 and Ks4 classes.
