A collection of engaging mathematics resources to help your students get the most out of your maths lessons. You will find a wide variety of resources from worksheets to whole class activities with more being added every week!

A differentiated worksheet for decimal division using bus stop method. Pupils can choose which section (out of 3) to attempt based on their own confidence. This sheet includes questions on both dividing decimals by whole numbers and dividing by decimals.
In the red section the "bus stop" has been set out for the pupils for all except the last four questions. In the amber section pupils need to set it out for themselves, with a worded question at the end. In the green section there are a few standard questions, followed with some worded questions to follow.
Answers included.

Worksheet with 12 rotation questions for pupils to complete. The first six have the centre of rotation drawn on the grid, the last six the pupils will have to find them themselves.

Treasure Hunt activity designed for pupils to practice written division methods.
Pupils can complete the task individually or in pairs. The cards should be cut out and stuck around the wall of the classroom. Pupils go and stand near one of the cards (in a pair or individually) - possibly whiteboards should be given to them for working out - and they start with that card. When they answer the question on the card they go and find the card that has that answer on, making a note of the order of the cards (the card numbers are at the bottom of the cards).
When they get round to the card they started at, pupils are done and come to you to check their work. The correct order is included in the documents so you can see quickly where any mistakes have been made.
Blank answer sheets are also included for pupils to write down the card numbers.

Fun and engaging bingo activity on expanding brackets for use in the classroom to consolidate learning. Printable grids included for pupils to use.
Questions range from more basic examples such as 3(x + 5) to include subtraction, non-unitary coefficients of x, having the variable as an external factor and the inclusion of more than one variable.
Initially the questions are roughly in order of difficulty, but being in PowerPoint format, are easily rearranged should use wish the complexity to be mixed up as you go through.

This double sided worksheet is aimed at lower ability pupils - it starts with some fairly simple y = x + 1 graphs etc. before ramping up the difficulty to x + y = 4 and some lines with negative gradients.
Also, the tables of values themselves use x values from 1 to 5, as the class I used this with were taught to fill in tables of values in the same way that they would generate a sequence (eg for y = 2x + 1: write out the 2 times table and add 1 to each number).

Engaging code breaker activity in which pupils work out the decimal multiplication questions for each letter and decode the hidden joke. Answers sheet included.
The joke should read "What is a butterfly's favourite subject? Mothematics!"

Complete order of operations resource that should last over two lessons (perhaps three), but there is a suitable ending point at about 1 lessons work if you do not want to spend longer on the topic.
Starts off with questions to check on misconceptions, followed by an explanation of the order of operations - you can choose to use the BIDMAS acronym if you wish, but it is not explicitly stated if you prefer not to use it. The operations are presented as a pyramid to show clear priority.
This is followed by questions for independent work of increasing difficulty and another task where pupils can choose between more calculations to work out or inserting brackets to make equations correct.
After this, some examples and questions bring square roots in to increase depth, including some questions where pupils need to correct mistakes that have been made.
To round it all off, pupils can attempt the 4 Four’s challenge, where they attempt to make the numbers from 1 to 20 using exactly 4 four’s and any operations they like. The number 19 requires factorials so it has been done for the pupils to avoid needing to teach this - and the number 11 is also completed so they can see that square roots can be used, as well as putting 4’s together to make 44.
All answers are provided.

Three stage worksheet for finding the mode of a set of data.
In the first section the questions are started for the pupils, with support gradually removed.
The second section is to develop fluency, starting with some questions with minimal changes and developing the difficulty to include questions involving multiple modes, or none.
The third section is for reasoning questions to help develop pupils understanding of the concept.

Double sided worksheet with 24 straight line graphs for pupils to write down the equation of. ranging from positive gradients to negative, and then fractional gradients.
EDIT: I recently did a lesson on this topic with some higher set year 11’s, so have produced a second, harder sheet that includes axes with different scales, forcing pupils to use “change in y/change in x” to find gradient instead of just going one across and counting squares. The new sheet is only one sided, but is more suitable for higher attaining pupils.
Answers now included.

A differentiated worksheet for place value, broken into three sections.
In the red section pupils need to complete a table by either converting the given number into words or words into figures.
In the amber section pupils need to write down the value of an underlined digit.
The green section contains some GCSE style questions based around digits on cards.

A simple and easy to use cross number worksheet to help pupils practice converting numbers from words into figures.
Pupils will strongly engage with this activity as it can add some interest and competition to a relatively dry topic.

Two Treasure Hunt activities designed for pupils to practice their understanding of place value. One requires pupils to convert words into figures, the other involves finding the value of an underlined digit.
Pupils can complete the task individually or in pairs. The cards should be cut out and stuck around the wall of the classroom. Pupils go and stand near one of the cards (in a pair or individually) - possibly whiteboards should be given to them for working out - and they start with that card. When they answer the question on the card they go and find the card that has that answer on, making a note of the order of the cards (the card numbers are at the bottom of the cards).
When they get round to the card they started at, pupils are done and come to you to check their work. The correct order is included in the documents so you can see quickly where any mistakes have been made.
Blank answer sheets are also included for pupils to write down the card numbers.

This worksheet is a combination of my decimal addition and decimal subtraction worksheets, aimed at teachers who prefer to teach these together.
There are three sections, the red section assists pupils by setting out the problems for them at first before forcing them to do so themselves. In the yellow section the pupils must set out all the problems themselves, whereas the green section contains worded questions and some problem solving elements.
Answers are included.

Engaging code breaker activity in which pupils write down the value of the underlined digits for each letter and decode the hidden joke. Answers sheet included.
The joke should read "Where to maths teachers go on vacation? Times Square!"

Mixed questions on interpreting pictograms, bar charts, bar-line charts and frequency tables.
I’ve put more reasoning questions in towards the end, but there are a couple here and there at the start too so all pupils get to engage with them, not just the pupils who finish first.
Designed to go in line with the Edexcel KS3 scheme of work Year 1, Unit 1.2, but could be used with GCSE classes too.
Answers included.

Activity sheet where pupils answer the times tables questions in words and then find the words in the wordsearch grid below. Perfect for consolidation of quite a dry topic in KS1 or KS2, and could also be used as cover work for a low ability Year 7 or 8 set.
File has been uploaded in Publisher and PDF format for ease of use.

Simple yet engaging code breaker activity in which pupils solve equations with brackets and write the letter of the equation under the corresponding answer to reveal the hidden message of who stole the school laptops.
Message should read "The Thief was Prince Harry!"

Simple yet engaging code breaker activity in which pupils solve one step equations and write the letter of the equation under the corresponding answer to reveal the hidden message of what Mr Chips did at the weekend.
Message should read "He stole the queen's hat".

An engaging cross number worksheet to help pupils practice their written multiplication skills. Pupils really enjoy this activity as it can add some interest and competition to a relatively dry topic.

Two relay activities based on angle properties including parallel lines.
One of them contains exam style questions aimed at my middle ability year 8 group, the other has more problem solving style questions, mostly taken from the UKMT Challenge that is aimed at my top set year 9's.
Pupils (in pairs) are given question 1 to start at the same time, and when they have successfully answered they get the next question to try.
First pair to answer all 16 questions correctly wins!
