Maths Department Handbook proforma

Maths Department Handbook proforma

(0)
This is a comprehensive Maths Department Handbook proforma containing 66 pages that can be easily adapted for the needs of any secondary Maths department. It has been reviewed as part of my school's external inspection process and was cited as exemplary. I hope you find it useful. Obviously many sections, such as assessment, homework, behavioural policy, available resources, are specific to my school, and would need some amendment. Other sections, such as G&T policies, Calculation policy, Literacy policy, Use of ICT and Calculators, use of learning support etc should provide a good foundation for departments to personalise. It includes descriptors for the new GCSE specification 9 -1 grades.

22 Maths homework or revision papers for Ages 11 to 16 (over 150 pages)
silvestertimsilvestertim

22 Maths homework or revision papers for Ages 11 to 16 (over 150 pages)

(4)
This is a series of 22 homework assignments. Each page relates to the new GCSE specification grading structure (Page 6 is equivalent to Grade 6) with 15 marks available on each page and a style of questioning that allows for quick marking. For US users, the increasing complexity of the papers will ensure students can demonstrate what they already have learned while challenging themselves to advance their knowledge and understanding. The papers cover a broad range of topics and are designed to get students practising and extending themselves for examination preparation. They can be used successfully with any age, although younger students will naturally focus on the earlier pages of each assignment. The homework assignments are designed so that students can choose any four consecutive pages, or the teacher can designate which four consecutive pages the student should complete, hence targeting the ability of the student and always promoting the opportunity to challenge oneself. The monitoring document, therefore, allows for 4 consecutive page results to be input for each student, generating a percentage result and a ‘Page Progress’ result (which effectively determines the grade that the student achieves). These are easy to use, write on papers that have been used successfully to raise the attainment of Mathematics students at all ability levels at the College within which the author teaches.
Geometry Learning Plans
silvestertimsilvestertim

Geometry Learning Plans

(0)
These documents provide detailed teaching pedagogy for Shape, Space and Measure topics taught from ages 11 to 16. They provide learning objectives and explanations of how to approach topics from first principles to secure long term understanding, and to avoid teaching tricks! Area, for example, is commonly associated with length times width, without developing a pure understanding of what area actually means.
GCSE Religious Studies self-assessment rubrics for writing extended responses
silvestertimsilvestertim

GCSE Religious Studies self-assessment rubrics for writing extended responses

(0)
These rubrics allow students to review and evaluate their own work. The 'RS Checklist for Success' is more appropriate for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 learners who are middle to lower ability, and need to learn to scaffold their own work and check for completeness, SPAG, and general presentation. We use the rubric as a support for those students who are prone to making the same basic literacy errors, and who need to develop their basic written responses. The 'RS GCSE Checklist for Success provides two tables; one for Edexcel GCSE Part c) style responses (usually requiring two points that are clearly expressed and sufficiently developed, and where a source of authority is referred to); and one for Part d) style responses which require greater depth of argument with points FOR, points AGAINST and a general balanced conclusion. While developed for RS Edexcel Specification B, the tables can easily be edited and adapted to suit any essay writing needs, to encourage self-assessment and ensure students have a framework that will support progress and success.
Bearings
silvestertimsilvestertim

Bearings

(0)
This is a series of 6 pages that can be printed as an A3 folded booklet for teaching students how to work out bearings. The first page provides a starter which revisits key angle facts based on parallel lines and a transversal, and based on angles on a straight line, at a point and in a triangle. The second page presents the key learning objectives and a section in which notes can be written. This is followed by a simple Task 1 of using bearings diagrams to work out the bearings of one point from another point using angle calculations, rather than scale drawing. Task 2 then requires students to draw diagrams first based on the information provided, and then to work out the required bearing. The lesson sits comfortable in an hour lesson with time for a plenary.
