This lesson has two examples present. The first is where you find the frequency of all the sections. The second is a question similar to what you may find in a GCSE question (one section). Feel free to leave a comment and look at my other resources.
Used with low ability Y11. Starts by recalling basic angle facts - line, triangle, vertically opposite and around a point. Any questions that the students have got wrong they have the opportunity to practise so they are happy enough to enter the lesson. If anyone got 5/5 they can do the special quad ext whilst others are practising. Think pair share - what do we think the rules may be? Go over the rules. They then have to match up the correct rules, diagrams and facts. This was useful to remind them during the lesson. MWB questions - What's the answer and why? Main task. - I had cut the cards up and put them in Red, Amber and Green cups. I removed the Red cup when the second timer had gone off so no one could 'rest on their laurels. Exit card is differentiated also. Please leave a comment.
Measuring angles starter includes questions with the protractors bullseye misaligned to really see if the class are truly thinking about each step. Worksheet is differentiated by chillies. The more chillies you have worked through the spicier your work was in the lesson. Feel free to comment or look at my other resources.
This is a mix of ratio questions based around designing an amusement park. I would use it as a consolidation activity for HA or KS4, or a worded question challenge sheet for KS3 or LA KS4 groups.
This was for my bottom set Y8. I did use some slides from another TES user but it was so long ago I don't know who (If i find who I will update this to reflect them. It has a video to make them think about what 180 and 360 mean in the world of snowboarding, MWB questions and differentiated tasks. Please leave any comments.
This was inspired by one of TES222’s resources (Thank you for the inspiration) This sheet helps students use bar modelling for finding the multiplication/division fact families. The extension consists of bars which have missing numbers (replaced by a y), the students are to use their bar modelling knowledge to create the algebraic equations. The challenge task is to find a value for y. Any feedback is greatly appreciated :D
A task that I have adapted to work on a 4 quadrant grid. I used it as a starter and it went down well. But could be used as a main activity. Would love to know how you used/ liked it.
This introduces how to use a protractor and the inside and outside scales. It includes questions which have the bullseye misaligned to really check if the students are paying attention to every detail. Feel free to comment or view my other resources.
Worksheet created using the Fortnite map (thank you @nonbedford). The students have to get ‘within the storm’ thinking about distance, bearings and speed. The second page has a create your own challenge question. I used this with KS3 and 4, all classes enjoyed the activity. Any ideas with how it could be used please comment :D
This was used with top set year 9. As a final differentiated lesson on simultaneous equations. - Starter o Eliminate starter (directed numbers) o Simultaneous Equations where you don’t need to multiply (Practise basic methods needed for today’s lesson) - AFL o Where do you start? 6 questions, 2 similar to green 2 similar to amber and 2 similar to red. o Check their answers and see where each student should start. - RAG Worksheets o After 5 minutes encourage students to move up a sheet. Especially if they started on Green - Plenary – What stage are you?
This is a worksheet that allows the students to gain confidence by first plotting the linear graph, then developing their knowledge by changing the symbol from = to less/more than. Then finally extending their knowledge by changing the symbol to a more/less than or equal to. With effective questioning this makes a good independent introduction task.
**Thank you to Corbett maths for one of the questions!** I used this with a Year 11 class who was predicted 3-5. There are 4 exam questions, on the top of the sheet there are all the correct statements to build the proof. I cut the sheets in two, so that the statements was on one sheet and the questions on another, this way the confident students can be stretched by having no help. Please tell me how you used or would amend this resource!
The first sheet is taken from TES222 (Thank you for the inspiration) This sheet helps students use bar modelling for finding the addition/subtraction fact families. The extension consists of bars which have missing numbers (replaced by an x), the students are to use their bar modelling knowledge to create the algebraic equations. The challenge task is to find a value for x. Any feedback is greatly appreciated :D
Students have to choose which mixed number/fraction is the closest to 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2. There are 9 fraction cards to choose from. Differentiated by the different cards. HA cards just state the mixed number/fraction. You could encourage these students to maybe convert them into decimals in order to compare efficiently. LA cards have fraction wheels on for students to colour, allowing them to directly compare the shapes the have coloured in. Any comments or improvements please message me. I hope you find this useful.
An AfL resource for solving equations. Start the lesson with the level ladder (before lesson) sheet. As a class mark it together. This tells you where each student should start, there are tasks based on every rung (mainly tarsia's), for them to practise. And then get reassessed at the end of the lesson, to show progression. Most students may only go up by one rung, but that is still progression. Alternately, you could use the level ladder sheet before and after a module on solving equations.
