The Resources within this shop are all designed for the teaching of Mathematics for those in the age range 7 - 18 years old. Most resources consist of a PowerPoint lesson followed by a worksheet for the students. With over twenty six years of experience, the powerpoint/worksheets within the shop have been used successfully by myself and colleagues over that time. As a head of department for over 15 years, the department has yearly been judged as adding substantial value to students grades.

Constructing Triangles

(1)
Three lessons on how to construct Triangles. Each lesson has a relevant worksheet for students to answer either in class or as a piece of homework. Each worksheet also has a solution sheet. First lesson looks at constructing triangles when given all three sides. Second lesson looks at constructing triangles when given one side and two angles. Third lesson looks at constructing triangles when given two sides and one angle.
Christmas Maths Quiz

Christmas Maths Quiz

(0)
This series of slides consists of twenty mathematical questions with a Christmas theme. The idea is to keep students entertained in the final days/weeks of the term whilst also doing some good quality maths work. The questions can be answered with or without a calculator. Answers are provided at the end. Merry Christmas.
Frequency Polygon & Cumulative Frequency Revision
sjcooper

Frequency Polygon & Cumulative Frequency Revision

(1)
This revision lesson reminds students how to draw both Frequency polygons and cumulative frequency curves. This is done through both worked examples and a few for them to have a go at before checking answers at the board. The lesson also reminds students how the median and Interquartile range are found from the cumulative frequency curve.
Year 3: Equivalent Fractions

Year 3: Equivalent Fractions

(1)
This PowerPoint lesson looks at equivalent fractions through worked examples of areas shaded. The lesson is backed up with a worksheet for pupils to answer either in class or as a piece of homework. Answers are included.
Decimals Workbook
sjcooper

Decimals Workbook

(0)
This workbook consists of 5 worksheets. One for conversion between decimals and fractions and one of each for Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. I use this book together with the PowerPoint uploaded on here. Answers included
Probability

Probability

5 Resources
These three presentations cover lessons from the basics of probability of one event up to the probability of more than one event represented on tree diagrams or on a sample space.
Transformations Reflections
sjcooper

Transformations Reflections

(2)
A lesson teaching students how to reflect in a given mirror line, including work on the xy axis. Lesson also contains a worksheet for students to work through in class or as a piece of homework.
Christmas Crossnumber

Christmas Crossnumber

(3)
An Excellent Christmas resource to keep the students busy with their four rules of number before the Christmas break. Answers to the crossnumber are included.
Probability Tree diagrams

Probability Tree diagrams

(2)
This worksheet can be used by students who have just been taught how to draw and complete a Probability tree diagram. I have a PowerPoint containing worked examples, which I use with this worksheet. This PowerPoint is available to purchase. On completing the PowerPoint students can then demonstrate their new skills with this worksheet. The answers to this worksheet are included with the said PowerPoint. follow the link below https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/probability-tree-diagrams-11225929
Best Buys Revision
sjcooper

Best Buys Revision

(2)
With my year 11 foundation group struggling with recent Best Buy questions I put these two slides together for further practice. I worked through the first example and then they attempted the following questions before we checked answers together. It is only a short piece but follows the same pattern as most of my other revision lessons. However the other revision lessons tend to last the length of a lesson.
Logarithms & Exponentials
sjcooper

Logarithms & Exponentials

4 Resources
These three lessons I usually teach towards the end of year 12 in preparation for the introduction of natural logs in calculus. The lessons introduce students to Logs, the laws of logs. The Algebra used in logs and the Natural log and exponential.
Constructions: Bisecting lines and Angles & constructing Angles
sjcooper

Constructions: Bisecting lines and Angles & constructing Angles

(1)
These two lessons teach students how to 1. Bisect a line 2. Bisect an Angle 3. Drop a perpendicular to a line 4. construct a 60 degree angle 5. construct a 90 degree angle 6. construct the 30 and 45 degree angle 7. construct 75 and 120 degree angles. The lessons also include worksheets for the students to attempt in class or as a piece of homework. Answers are included.
Conditional Probability
sjcooper

Conditional Probability

(1)
This lesson is aimed at the higher level student. It is designed to be taught after the tree diagram lesson. Probably late into year 10 or early year 11. The worked examples demonstrate how the tree diagram can be used to answer some questions, but also demonstrates another quicker method of dealing with repeated events.
Unitary Methods for direct and Inverse proportions
sjcooper

Unitary Methods for direct and Inverse proportions

(1)
These two lessons have worked examples which demonstrate the methods used for direct proportion and Inverse proportion. Attached to each lesson is a worksheet which can be printed out for students to either answer in class or as a piece of homework.
Velocity-Time graphs
sjcooper

Velocity-Time graphs

(0)
This power point has a series of worked examples to demonstrate how students can find the distance traveled or the acceleration of an object by means of finding the (approximate) area under the curve or the gradient of the tangent drawn to the curve.
Venn Diagrams & Probability
sjcooper

Venn Diagrams & Probability

(1)
This lesson is demonstrates through worked examples how Venn diagrams can be used to obtain the probability of a given event. The lesson also has a worksheet attached.
Angles in a Triangle & Angles in a Quadrilateral
sjcooper

Angles in a Triangle & Angles in a Quadrilateral

(0)
The power point presentation shows students why angles in a triangle add up to 180. Prior knowledge is required here of the angles on a straight line and/or Alternate angles. The power point has a series of worked examples for the angles in a triangle before looking at the angles in a quadrilateral. Following the angles in a quadrilateral there are a series of cards that can be printed to go with a collection of questions at the board. (a bit like bingo) Students answer each question and should find a number that can be crossed out. The winner being the one who completes their card correctly!
Paper 1 Mathematics papers for Foundation & Higher
sjcooper

Paper 1 Mathematics papers for Foundation & Higher

(1)
Here are two papers for mathematics examinations aimed at non calculator for foundation and higher. These papers can not be obtained by students on the internet. Hence are ideal for end of term (or year) assessments. Solutions are included.
