Working on Project-A-Lesson. A full lesson in a PowerPoint. For busy teachers who still want outstanding engaging tasks and learning checks

Changelog: 2 new sections. Changed some answers to address more misconceptions.
Completely redone version of maths pointless.
The countdown is now much, much quicker (as requested).
New questions will also be coming in an update over the following weeks.
Play over numerous rounds and keep score on the board.

Functional Maths Activity: Application of Algebra. This adapted from Mr Barton's fantastic choosing mobile phone contract powerpoint. Cheers Mr B!
What I've done is create a worksheet that has 4 different points of differentiation. Levels T and S have the same numbers and give students differing guidence on things like the output table along with some literacy prompting.
Sheets C and E cut down the scaffolding and make the numbers a little tougher.
NOTE: Now edited to correct the error in graph scale and include the font I&'ve used (not having this font may make things look funny)

Really simple powerpoint on index laws (multiplication, division, brackets).

Extremely scaffolded sheet for a low ability class on drawing bar charts.
The worksheet starts off with a half-complete bar chart that students must finish from a table of data.
Students must then draw a bar chart, given axis and a half-complete tally chart.
Finally, they must complete a bar chart from scratch using a half-complete tally chart that they can complete.

Massively based on @Dooranran 's stuff.
Speed distance time
Nets
Areas of circles/volumes of spheres
Symmetry
Pie charts
Equations of lines
Proportion
Reading graphs
Misleading graphs.

Simple worksheet that covers index laws, following through to negative and fractional powers.

This is a lesson I did about compound interest. It has a clip from the movie Idiocracy on the powerpoint (please comment if this works!). In the movie Luke Wilson discusses a plan to put some money in a bank account, use a time machine, and become a billionaire due to the interest.
My question to students was: how many years would you have to go back to earn £1million, assuming a fixed interest rate.
As always, please comment if you found this useful or helpful.

Pupils shade in visual representations of fractions to order. The shapes have guide lines to create fractions of different denominators next to them, so they can compare them.
The sheet then moves on to asking students to order without the pictures.
This is designed to follow on from the teachingimage.com visual equivalent fractions worksheets.

A worksheet for simple sequences, both generating from a written rule, and finding the missing number.
Students start at T. They then answer the question at the bottom of the letter, to find the answer at the top of their next letter. And so on.
If they complete this it should spell out the punchline 'Tyrannosaurus Wrecks&'

Scaffolded sheet that asks students to shade in 10x10 grids to see which is bigger, a given fraction or percentage.
The last question deliberately gives students a fraction which does not fit nicely into a 10x10. This is useful for a discussion/plenary, and provides an opportunity for students to see an advantage of more formal methods.
The IW resource introduces students to the idea of colouring in the grids. (This works best if pupils come up to the board and colour in themselves)
The worksheet uses the free Quicksand font. Please download this if it does not display correctly.

My maths Only Connect connecting walls. More added each week.
Perfect as starters.

Starter about hatching eggs and a rich task involving student developing a plan to maximise XP and minimise time spent.
Made by a colleague who is shy to upload stuff. I understand none of it. Much thanks to him.

A few pie charts that represent funny ideas or jokes. The idea is that students get a feel for how pie charts work. I used it as a 6th grade starter to generate discussion. The 'how often charts don't make sense' pie chart is particularly good for this.

Students are shown 8 triangles. They have to assess if the traingles shown are mathematically valid.
Some of the triangles do not add up to 180 dregrees. Some triangles have clear acute angles lables as obtuse angles.
As an extention, some pupils can give written reasons WHY some of the traingles are not correct.
NOTE: These are not drawn to scale, and are not to assess students ability to measure angles with a protractor. They are as a test of student's knowledge about the internal angles of a triangle.

Simple KS3 sequences worksheet.
Find the next two terms in the sequence.
Find the rule for the sequence.
Create the sequence from the rule.

A selection of misleading/confusing graphs culled from newspapers and online. Useful to talk about the difference between misleading and confusing.

Card sorts on multiplying decimals.
Two answers the same to really trip students up in building the card sort.
One card sort has missing answers for students to fill in themselves.
