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

Big focus on correct language, including a little task that asks students to say if something is an expression, a formula, an equation or an identity.
Lots of practice, worded questions etc. Recommend mini-whiteboards for this (and all) lessons.
NOTE: I change my PowerPoints often, but don’t always get around to uploading the latest version here. The latest version of this file can always be found at this link.

Some graphs
Are they bad?
Why are they bad?
What could be improved?
Updated 11/5/17

Colour in the boxes to make a little picture.
Includes lots of misconceptions, lots of negatives and some fractional practice.

Goes from listing outcomes (there’s a good maths4everyone resource for further practice on this) to using sample space diagrams.

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

ppt on collecting like terms.
Includes:
Discussion on what a like term is
Some basic questions
Questions about algebraic perimeter
Questions on algebra pyramids
A problem solving task involving an algebraic magic square
Two learning checks.

Full lessons. Covers a few discussion points, and goes through how to find experimental probabilities from tables. You should probably print off the questions as they go over two pages.

Example problem pairs covering the three types (one step, two step, calculation)
Whiteboard work
Some questions
Learning check

Two lessons at least here. Simple sine rule questions and more difficult ‘using the sine rule’ as well as the ambiguous case. Includes a worksheet, some whoteboard work, an exam question, some example problem pairs, a section on doing some timed questions.

I’ve kept this as a separate lesson from dividing. I think it’s worth taking the time.
Prior knowledge check
Example problem pairs
Learning check
When I come to update this, I will add a section on multiplying then factorising. It wasn’t quite appropriate for the class I designed this lesson for.
NOTE : I update my lessons a lot. To correct errors or make them better. I don’t always reupload them here. You can find the latest version of my PowerPoint here.

Full lesson
Prior knowledge check
quite a few questions with nice diagrams
learning check
NOTE: TES is a bit rubbish for versioning. I often update my PowerPoints to add corrections or tweek the content etc. The latest version of this resource can always be found here

Loads of stuff here. Example problem pairs, exercises and other stuff.
There’s also a ‘vary and twist’ worksheet here. Trying to use variation theory to draw out a bit of understanding.
NOTE: My PowerPoints are updates often, but not always reuploaded to TES. The latest version of this PowerPoint can always be found here.

Really simple little worksheet. Label the hypotenuse on 6 rotated triangles. Uploaded because I could find anything similar

Needs a lot of printing (due to the nature of the topic)
NOTE : I update stuff often, chopping and changing or correcting errors or general improvements. The latest version of this PowerPoint can always be found here.

Tried to go through from simplifying right through to factorising to simplify.
Lots of example/problem pairs
Lots of work including some whiteboard work.
A learning check.
At least two lessons here.
NOTE : I make lots of changes to my PowerPoints each time I reteach them, but reuploading them is a hassle. The latest version will always be here.

Lots of practice. A problem solving task that’s worth printing off and spending a good while on.
A nice (if I do say so myself) activity on identifying which angles in an isosceles triangle are equal. Could do with a little algebra task to extend this.
NOTE : I update my PowerPoints all the time, but don’t always get around to reuploading them. The latest version of this PowerPoint can always be found at this link.

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.
All credit to Paul Collins.

Finding/Using algebra/vertically opposite
NOTE: I update stuff often, but don’t always get around to changing the file on TES. The latest version of this resource can always be found here.

Full lesson on equations of parallel lines.
Exercises with answers included.

Covers simple solving, negatives and solving with unknowns on both sides.
Lots of whiteboard work.
