I am a firm believer that 75% of behaviour issues in a classroom can be controlled through the resources given to students. I have worked with a lot of low ability classes where constructive work is essential. The scheme of work can be tough for pupils to access and I have had to really think about prior knowledge and breaking work down into manageable pieces. My aim is to make worksheets that cater for all, enable students to keep busy and progress from section to section.

Interpreting line graphs

(1)
Interpreting line graphs can be a tricky skill for students when the scale isn't straight forward. I have firstly focused the lesson on reading scales and working out divisions (what it's increasing by). The second half is to apply this skill to interpret and access the sorts of questions they will come across. Both worksheets are student friendly and are aimed at KS3 and KS4 The flipchart contains a starter, explanations and worksheet answers. Please see my other lesson on plotting and interpreting line graphs.

Everything you need for a lesson observation is here. This is a very constructive lesson that you will not be disappointed with. This is an active inspire flipchart with worksheets. Starter - Basic Scale Factor for enlargement of squares, rectangles and triangles with answers provided. Discussion 1 - The starter links for discussing what similarity is from the shapes they enlarged. Students are shown two shapes and are asked if they are similar and why. This being that the lengths have been multiplied by the same number (SF) meaning they are similar. Identifying similarity, congruency and none is discussed here. Activity 1 - Pair activity identifying similarity, congruency and none + answers Discussion 2 - Identifying Scale factor from two shapes given they are similar. Working out SF and finding missing lengths. Challenging similar triangle shapes included for discussion. Activity 2 - Differentiated worksheet task covering all of the above. - Calculating SF - Finding missing lengths using SF - Finding missing lengths for complex triangle similar shapes Answers included Plenary - Provides a link to the real world or to test them against the GCSE question at the start to demonstrate good progress

revelsum

Reading scales and interpreting distance time graphs (Upper ability)

(1)
Section A - Worksheet 1 is all about reading scales found on typical graphs where the scale isn't increasing by 1. Here we have 14 questions with structure to help your students get this part right. Section B - Here are 6 questions for interpreting from a distance time graph. Before students start the question, they have to work out what each division is worth for both Distance and Time for the question (what it's increasing by each time). This is structure to help them access the common distance time graph questions found on exams. For each question are a set of good quality questions. Powerpoint with starter and all answers to both worksheets. Very suitable for higher ability classes.
Rearranging Formula equations

I have started with simple calculations by making numbers the subject first and then progressing onto letters. There is a good 3 to 4 lessons here which I believe covers everything to do with rearranging (including factorising expressions). Please see the preview, this will show you what the slides will look like for the tasks the pupils will be doing. This is fully loaded with examples for you, tasks for the students and of course, answers for everything! Please note that this is an activ-inspire flipchart, you will require Promethean boards in your school to allow this to work. There are no worksheets because everything is on this flipchart, 50 slides!
Direct proportion lesson GCSE including graphs
revelsum

Direct proportion lesson GCSE including graphs

(1)
Teaching direct proportion can be confusing for students. I have carefully thought about the introduction to this and have broken it down into manageable chunks. The lesson leads up to the complex questions (i.e. x is directly proportional to y). The new GCSE (1-9) requires students to draw the proportions on graphs and use them. I have added 6 questions on this. Answers and solutions are available for all work set. Includes detailed step by step explanations, my students really benefited from this. PowerPoint presentation and ActivInspire flipchart available.

Ratio lesson observation

(2)
This lesson is suitable for lower and upper ability students. The work is differentiated and I have taught this to a mixed ability class. I have put bar model into the questions (its a fantastic method of teaching ratio). Suitable for both KS3 and KS4 The lesson focus's on the following skills and the worksheet is structured this way: First section - Sharing out amounts - boxes are used for visual representation (bar model) Section section - Given the ratio and the quantity, students are to find the other quantity (bar model) Third section - Students are to find the totals given the ratio and a quantity (bar model) Fourth section - This is a mixture of questions and students are to construct bar models There is assessment opportunities to measure the progress at the start and at the end of the lesson. The starter Is basic division which I find works very well to settle students down quickly at the start of a lesson. A lesson plan is attached explaining how I have gone about it.
