Colour Me Mathematics Sheets (1)

(0)
This bundle includes: Order or Operations, Solving Equations & Substitution. An engaging activity for students to consolidate their learning. Students answer the questions on the sheet and then, once they have the answer, colour in the corresponding section of the large grid to create a pattern. All details are fully explained in the resource itself, with lots of additional ideas as to how to get the best out of the resource, including: extension activities, challenge questions and suggested variations on the activity. All answers included

Mathematical Plenary Sticks

(1)
A set of 100+ Plenary questions/tasks to use in your Mathematics lessons. Print, cut up and laminate each page of this resource before hole punching and binding the ‘sticks’ together for plenty of use in your lessons. Included in the resource, in addition to the 100+ questions/tasks are blank ‘sticks’ for you to create your own questions/tasks, plus suggestions as to how best use this resource with your students.

Valentine's Day Mathematics Activities

Valentine's Day Mathematics Activities

(1)
A PowerPoint packed full of Valentine’s Day themed activities. The first is to find your 'true love' by finding the number of vowels in a person’s name as a percentage of the number of letters in their name. The main involves listing outcomes of meal choices from a Valentine’s Day dinner menu. There is then a short task involving the love of the number 27 (or the numbers your students love). 2 investigative tasks are then posed based on the main task and finally there is another short task to find one’s ‘true love’! All the teacher notes are in the slides, examples are given and answers to the main task also included. Happy Valentine’s Day. Read more here...http://goo.gl/VAPnSS

This notebook contains a whole lesson/number of lessons on using algebra to prove statements such as the sum of three consecutive numbers being a multiple of 6. Starter activity includes writing expressions for certain numbers as well as expanding and simplifying brackets. Lots of examples and investigative tasks for students to attempt. Questions to give to your students and plenary activities to review their learning.
Mathematics Loyalty Cards

Mathematics Loyalty Cards

I made these loyalty cards earlier in the year to be used with Y11 classes revising for their GCSEs. Can be easily adapted for any subject/year group where you can offer rewards for improvement, enthusiasm and performance in your lessons.
Guess Which (Quadrilateral)
paulcollinspaulcollins

Guess Which (Quadrilateral)

(1)
An engaging game looking at the properties of quadrilaterals. The game is based on the popular board game 'Guess Who'. Students pick a playing card from the deck and then, in turn, ask each other questions to try and guess which quadrilateral their partner has. As the game progresses students eliminate (cross off) the quadrilaterals from their board, based on their partner's answers to their questions. The game is won when one student guesses, correctly, their partner's quadrilateral. Playing board and (back-to-back) playing cards included as well as full instructions and suggestions as to how best use the resource.
GCSE Trigonometry Revision Sheet

GCSE Trigonometry Revision Sheet

(4)
I created this GCSE Trigonometry Revision sheet for my Y11 students. I printed the pdf document on A3 paper and got students to complete the questions on the sheet, adding in their own notes/mnemonics to help them remember when to use each rule/formula. The students really enjoyed doing this activity in class as part of their revision for their examinations and then took their A3 sheets home to use as part of their ongoing revision. Once the sheet was filled in, and checked/marked we used them to answer questions from text books/past exam papers. One of my students' completed sheets is attached too.
Takeaway Homework Menu - Mathematics

Takeaway Homework Menu - Mathematics

(0)
This is my 'takeaway homework' menu I give to my students. The pdf contains a ready to print version of the menu to give straight to students. The idea is that they choose any task to complete for their homework from the menu. I set these homeworks over a half term and students have to earn a set amount of 'chillies' in these weeks. On the ppt file I have an editable version of the menu for you to change my name etc to suit your students - this can then be printed as above. I also have many examples of work from my students to use for inspiration as to what can be created. There are also some display logos and ideas from my current display board in the word doc. See my blogs below for more details! http://goo.gl/hSj1ER http://goo.gl/s6YAln I love this approach to homework and so do my students.
Circle Theorems Lesson - Dissection

Circle Theorems Lesson - Dissection

(0)
This is a lesson I teach on Circle Theorems. The main resource is the notebook file which contains details on the starter task (see below), all circle theorems explained and detailed for students to copy on A3 paper (this is how I usually get them to do it), then 10 multiple choice questions to answer using my ABCD Fans (see my free resources)[can also use mini whiteboards]. The starter task, separate wsheet for students, involves them picking out parts of the diagram shown to identify angle facts already known - angles in a triangle, quadrilateral etc. This is then on the notebook file which is interactive and layered, allowing you to pull out certain features to explain to students.

Trigonometric Ratios Calling Cards

Trigonometric Ratios Calling Cards

(2)
Another set of calling cards (Flashcards) I have used with my classes. This time the cards have the 3 trigonometric ratios. I put example questions on the board and then ask the class to put up the card which has the correct ratio on it that we would use in the question.
