Fractions, Proportion & percentage questions

(6)
Resource with fractions, proportion and percentages. Resource includes worked examples followed by questions, also includes answers. The lesson also includes a worksheet which students could use in class or complete as a piece of homework. This resource should last a full hours lesson or more. This resource is also very useful for students that struggle answering questions involving both fractions and percentages or fractions and ratio in the same question.
Mathematics Specifications taught in years 7 to 11

Mathematics Specifications taught in years 7 to 11

(1)
I put this on the site because I've used this since 1988 and its proved successful. Since the introduction of National curriculum, with its 15 attainment targets, I divided it into 5 sections. The four you see on each specification sheet plus one for investigations. What I like about this presentation is whenever I have seen a change to the syllabus such as in 1994, 2000, 2010 and more recently in 2015 I have only had to alter a little of what I do. Each year I print the specifications onto A3 paper. In a meeting, at the beginning of the year, we discuss what went well what do we think should be added to the year 7, 8, 9 scheme of work so that the work in year 10 and 11 can be reduced. I've been invited to several school to implement this and each school had sightly different schemes to each other. So for example with the introduction of the iterative formula I decided to introduce this in year 9 so that when students study this in years 10 or 11 they have already met it once. Years ago I decided that students in years 10 and 11 were struggling with Circle Theorems. Hence I introduced students to circle theorems in year 7 with two introduced. In year 8 we revised these two theorems and introduced 2 more. Then in year 9 all 6 theorems. This proved successful. Now don't get me wrong some years we added to a curriculum to find at the end of the year we were criticising ourselves with "theres too much to get through"; so the yearly debate is essential.Plus if nothing else it shows you are working as a team. The scheme for year 7 is aimed at everyone. Each student having the same opportunity to flourish. The schemes for year 8 and 9 are taken at the teachers discretion. That is to say with some classes the teacher will touch on a topic listed whereas other classes with totally master the said topic. The scheme in year 10 and 11 is what is required for the new specifications. Again a teacher decides where to start what they feel they can omit from the classroom learning, etc.. Some might say what materials do I need to cover the topics you have listed or resources. I have always left that up to the individual teacher (treating them as a professional) however if someone did ask for advise on covering say Decimals I would give them access to the power points and worksheets I use for that year group. I have demonstrated this with a hyperlink on many of the topics. I will add to these hyperlinks as I upgrade my lessons from PowerPoint/board work.

Algebraic Problems involving Angles

(0)
This lesson and worksheets looks at algebraic problems which involve constructing equations based on the knowledge of either angles in a triangle angles in a quadrilateral ands associated with parallel lines angles in a parallelogram angles associated with circle theorems. There are two worksheets to backup the worked examples. The second worksheet is similar to the first just in case you need a review and want student to "have another go" Solutions are provided.
