#### Colour by fractions of amounts

(1)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for finding fractions of amounts. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires four different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the questions and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. It also makes it very easy to tell which students understand and which need help as their answers are easy to see from a distance. Win-win as students are pleased to see their work displayed and the classroom looks brighter. :) The solution is the pattern displayed. Suitable for KS3 and KS4. All feedback gratefully accepted

#### Colour by negative numbers

(0)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with negative numbers. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires four different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students answer the questions and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. The solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully accepted.

#### Colour by equivalent ratios

(0)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising simplifying ratios. It addresses the common misconception of order e.g 2:3 is not the same as 3:2. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the questions and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. It also makes it very easy to tell which students understand and which need help as their answers are easy to see from a distance.

#### Colour by simplifying surds

(0)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising simplifying surds into the form arootb. It covers single surds and multiplying two surds together. I first created this sheet when I was looking for something fun and different for my more able students, only to find that there was very little for them. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. My students have loved seeing their work displayed on my wall. The solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully accepted.

#### Colour by sequences

(0)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising finding the nth term. The sequences are written in the form an + b . Students use one colour when a=2, a second colour when a=3 and a third colour when a=4. I also get the students to write the full solutions in the boxes. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. The pattern looks great on a classroom wall. The solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully accepted. The sequences are written in the form an + b . Use three colours. Use one colour when a=2, a second colour when a=3 and a third colour when a=4.

#### Fun revision activities for GCSE Maths

5 Resources
Two sets of 12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in ascending/descending order of solutions. A multiple choice activity - where each answer gives a letter. The full set of letters can be rearranged to spell the name of a band, and finally a cross number all covering multiple topics Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning.

#### Colour by powers and roots

(4)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising questions that include powers and roots. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies.

(0)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising multiplying with surds, square roots, and calculating indices with fractional and negative powers. It also covers multiples and common multiples as students are asked to colour answers that are multiples of two in one colour, multiples of three in a second colour and common multiples in a third colour. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. The solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully accepted.

#### colour by simplifying surds with extension

(0)
As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising simplifying surds into the form arootb. It covers single surds and multiplying two surds together. I first created this sheet when I was looking for something fun and different for my more able students, only to find that there was very little for them. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. My students have loved seeing their work displayed on my wall. Two solutions do not fit the pattern and students are encouraged to find their own questions that will fit the pattern allowing for stretch and challenge. The solution is the pattern displayed. The white spaces are where the solution does not fit the pattern. All feedback gratefully accepted.

#### Colour by special numbers (squares, cubes and primes)

(0)
This is a colouring sheet to get students to begin to recognise square numbers, cube numbers and prime numbers working around grades 3 and 4 of the new 1-9 mathematics GCSE. Students colour based on whether the number in each box is a square number, a cube number or a prime number. The sheet requires 3 colours per student. Due to the colouring nature of this sheet, it is very easy to see which students understand and which need support. Looks fantastic on a classroom wall once completed. Solution is the pattern displayed. All feedback gratefully received.

#### Fun revision activity for GCSE Maths

12 cards for students to cut up, solve and then place cards in ascending order of solutions. Just a slightly different way to get students to look at revision. A range of grades to allow access for all from beginning. When I use this with my class, I get students to work in pairs. I also give them paper to stick the cards on once order is complete and get them to write their working around the outside. I have found students to be much more engaged than if they were just given a page of questions. The 12 included topics are: Solving linear equations x's on both sides,fractions with negative fractional powers, Pythagoras' theorem, finding area of a triangle (using 1/2 absinC), median of a box plot, HCF, Percentage loss, standard form, area of a sector, circle theorems, mean of grouped data and range from stem and leaf diagram. Most of the included topics are around the higher/foundation borderline.

#### Colour by indices with algebra with extension
