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 nine 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.

Christmas End of Term Games

These activities are aimed at key stage 3 students. They could also be used as revision for GCSE students. The pack contains GCSE foundation style questions including standard form, ratio, number work, fractions, algebra and much more. Answers are included. Each round consists of four questions. Print the slides 8 to 13 on A4 paper and place one printed slide per table Put students into pairs (either by choice or teacher selection) Each are given a copy of slide 14 and a few sheets of pieces of A4 paper. The pairs are designated a starting table and the timer (slide 2) is started. The students are then given 5 minutes to answer the four questions on that table. Once the five minutes is up the students move clockwise to the next table and start the next set of four questions and the timer of slide 3 is started. This continues until all students have completed each set of questions. The exercise should take no longer than 30 minutes At the end students remain at their final table and swap answer sheets with the nearest table. Go through each question with the class before revealing the answers. Finally, students ad up their score and the highest score gets a prize! This exercise gives students a chance to try GCSE style foundation questions and see a demonstration on how they should be answered.

GCSE Mathematics KS4: Stem & Leaf Diagrams

(0)
This lesson and worksheet teaches students how to draw a stem and leaf diagram and also how it can be used to calculate the median and range. As a bonus I have also included an Excel worksheet Generator which allows you to create an infinite number of worksheets on stem & leaf for those who require additional practice. The lesson is mainly aimed at key stage 4 students studying GCSE mathematics, however it can also be used in any key stage 3 maths lesson. (Note available for Both PC and Mac)
Dividing into a given Ratio

Dividing into a given Ratio

(0)
Due to COVID the way we teach has altered somewhat. These days I find it easier to have my examples preprinted with students filling in the gaps between examples in class with the aid of the teacher at the front. A workbook is then provided which allows the student to answer directly in the book. Furthermore at home students can access a video example or two with the QR code on the front of the workbook (just in case they are struggling at home) Answers are provided and also answers to the examples

GCSE Graded Resources

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and recent lock downs, I have designed a series of graded worksheets which can be used to identify gaps in students work throughout the grades. This first batch looks at the material which should cover most topics in the Foundation Tier, graded from 1 to 5. There are approximately 3 to 4 sheets for each grade (with answers). The idea is that a student is given a grade 1 sheet to complete. Once marked and reviewed, the class teacher can then identify class issues, individual student issues and revise accordingly. The a second grade 1 sheet can be given to see if there is improvement. This can be completed for a third and sometimes a forth time. The same approach is then given to grades 2, 3, 4 and 5. This can also be used to seek what worked in lock down with on line learning and what did not.

Area & Perimeter of a rectangle

(0)
These two lessons I usually teach to year 7 students. However it could be taught at primary of even higher than year 7, if students struggle with area and perimeter. The powerPoints consist of worked examples demonstrating how we find the area of a rectangle or perimeter.
Subtracting Numbers

Subtracting Numbers

(0)
This lesson shows younger children how to subtract numbers when using the column method. Each example is worked through and students can see clearly each step. There are plenty of examples so that children can grasp the techniques involved. The latter examples involve an element of literacy to the question.
Area & Perimeter
sjcoopersjcooper

Area & Perimeter

7 Resources
A collection of PowerPoints on Area of a rectangle, triangle, trapezium and Circle or part circle. The collection also looks at the Perimeter of a rectangle and the circumference of a circle or part circle. Finally there is a collection of worksheets for the above topics.
Calculating the mean from a frequency table

Calculating the mean from a frequency table

(0)
This Powerpoint consists of a variety of worked examples which demonstrate how we can calculate the mean by using the "fx" column. The lesson starts with students asked to calculate the mean of a large set of data. Next by placing the data into a tally chart it is easy to show how much quicker it is to calculate the mean when presented in this format rather than a list of numbers.
The understanding of f(x)

The understanding of f(x)

(1)
This Powerpoint is used to introduce students to the expression f(x). Worked examples demonstrate how f(x) can be used algebraically. Solving equations or substituting x for other quantities.
Inverse Functions (GCSE)

Inverse Functions (GCSE)

(1)
Lesson and worksheet. The lesson consists of worked examples on how we find the inverse of a function. This lesson continues from the lesson on composite functions. The worksheet allows students to work through a number of questions to show their understanding of inverse functions. Answers are included.
Addition of Fractions

Addition of Fractions

(0)
This lesson is a Powerpoint and Worksheet which I have used to teach students how to add fractions together. This lesson is taught once I have covered equivalent fraction. Once the worked examples have been covered students should be given the worksheet to either complete in class or as homework. A Brexit question involving a village turn out for the referendum is a recent addition. Answers to the worksheet are also provided.
Composite Functions
sjcoopersjcooper

Composite Functions

(1)
This powerpoint lesson follows any lesson that has introduced functions to students. The lesson begins by demonstrating how functions could be combined together in order to make other functions. It then demonstrates, through worked examples, how to calculate a composite function. The worksheet has two uses, the first three questions are designed for students to demonstrate they have followed the process of finding a composite function. The remaining questions, whilst continuing this process, leads us to another lesson on Inverse Functions. The composite for the remaining questions work out to be repeatedly x.
Proportion
