A TES recommended author. Interactive resources, many of which involve Powerpoint or Excel to make Maths easier to plan and engage! Specifically I like to design repetitive yet engaging resources, which are often progressively difficult to foster calm lessons , create routine and encourage excitement in learning. Although I as a student very much enjoyed learning, it's clear that many students struggle to accept they enjoy, or want to enjoy Maths and these resources aim to overcome this.

KS2 KS3 KS4 Times Table / Multiplication Grid Generator, Easy to Challenging, Solutions, Easy print

KS2 KS3 KS4 Times Table / Multiplication Grid Generator, Easy to Challenging, Solutions, Easy print

This is a massive 14 tab excel spreadsheet. It contains: Two tabs of blank worksheets (multiple on a page). This is particularly useful for a last minute, ready to go starter. For example, if you have these ready and printed, you can generate one of the sheets on the whiteboard, and students can copy the appropriate numbers into the blank grid in order to deduce all of the blank numbers. One tab is for 6x6 grids (quicker starter/worksheet), other tab is for 12 x 12 grids Two tabs of 12x12 grids including repetition within the rows and / or columns. These grids are great at building students confidence, due to the repetition. One sheet is the questions, the other sheet is the answers. Five tabs of 12x12 grids WITHOUT repetition within the rows and/or columns. This means students are tested on all the times table within one worksheet or starter activity. One tab has column and row headers, but doesn’t have any content within the grid itself. The next three tabs are in varying difficulty level: easy, medium, and hard [easy has lots of the numbers within the grid itself already filled out, whereas hard has hardly any numbers]. The last tab is the answers. Three tabs of 6x6 grids WITHOUT repetition within the rows and/or columns. The first tab just contains a grid with NO numbers within the main grid itself. The second tab, my favourite, includes no row or column headers, therefore students have a challenging worksheet, and need to work out through logic to deduce the column and row headers. In some instances there may seem like there is more than one option for the row or column headers, so students need to deduce what is the only correct answer (like sudoku). This second tab, also involves row and column totals to incorporate the topic solving equations. The third tab is the solutions. What is great about the 6x6 grids and the 12x12 grids is that the first 6 rows and columns of the 12x12 grid, have exactly the same solutions as the 6x6 grid itself. One tab of solutions for BOTH of the sheets. This excel spreadsheet has been formatted so that ALL of the worksheets can be deduced form the same 12x12 grid. This is great in order to differentiate effectively. BONUS new worksheet tab. This is great because at a click of this button, or via F9 you can easily generate an infinite number of worksheets.

Angles in polygons, including exterior and exterior; Angles within circles; Pictures, Videos and Worksheets

This is a bundle of 6 of my resources regarding angles! 5 documents are generators, which means at the click of any button you are able to generate a new worksheet. This provides a calm atmosphere in learning, familiarity in resources for students and can demonstrate progress over time. 3 of these documents are worksheet generators, which require students to find angles within polygons by viewing the polygons themselves. The easiest worksheet just regards triangles and straight lines. The medium worksheet involves quadrilaterals, simple algebra, and straight lines. Whereas the last worksheet involves a multitude of polygons. Each come with a supporting tab call a ‘cheat sheet’, containing an answer for every question listed on a separate bit of paper. These can be individually cut up and folded along the dotted line to act as supporting answers, You can use thesse at your discretion to support the least able, enabling these worksheets to be low access high challenge. Furthermore, another of these documents also requires you to find missing angles and lengths within various polygons by using algebra. Helpfully there is are hints which can either be included, or not included on the sheet, as they are on the sheet’s extremities so can easily can be cut off. Another worksheet regards angles, but this time they are entirely worded question. Testing students knowledge on exterior angles as well as interior angles this time. Finally the last document is a powerpoint involving 5 videos of me hand drawing different circle theorems. Each of the videos are silent but supported by questioning on the screen. This has proved to be a very useful tool in maximising student engagement, and getting the students to come up with the questions and answers themselves whilst watching the video, whilst you are able to help individuals or manage behaviour as required. Each of the videos, has futher suggestion points, and each can be paused and resumed at a pace that suits your class. Please review if you found useful :)

KS3 Mathematics Starter Bundle

KS3 Mathematics Starter Bundle

This is a collection of 8 different resources and approximately 60 different Excel tabs. I use these as a premise for my starters with a mix of abilities from year 7-9. Each worksheet is differentiated, so you can give students varying sheets, or request they work from varying sections of the interactive whiteboard, whilst still providing them with the same answers. They foster a calm start to the lesson, and students always seem excited to learn when the lesson is started in this manner. The addition pyramids contain a self-check tool, so children can usefully self mark. The multiplication grid generator, includes an exciting ‘challenge’ sheet in which students have to work backwards to work out the row and column headers (using similiar skills to Sudoku). In addition to this the Cross number, and the times table grid excitingly contain a magic number extension. This involves students having to collate their answers, i.e. summing certain values, to obtain a magic numbers and perhaps win a small prize (sticker, or sweet, or just simple praise).

Interactive, Engaging Car Activity including Fractions, Decimals, Percentages and Probability,

Interactive, Engaging Car Activity including Fractions, Decimals, Percentages and Probability,

This is an engaging, and interactive 5 slide Powerpoint presentation which I made involving cars moving across a cartoon screen. You choose the slide you would like to test the students on and click ‘from current slide’, once the slideshow is full screen and the children are ready to view the animation you press the right arrow key and a ‘go’ symbol will drop from the top of the screen demonstrating the begininning of the process. Various cars will move from left to right, and right to left of the screen, with the aim for students to answer 5 questions such as: What is the sum of all the wheels in this animation? What is the difference in the number of cars going from left to right, in comparison to the cars going right to left What fraction of cars are yellow? What is the ratio of yellow, green and pink cars? What percentage of the cars are orange? To more challenging questions such as: If 10% of wheels get punctured during a journey, what is the expected numbers of wheels to get punctured in this animation? What is the expected probability of the car going from left to the right of the screen? If a customer wants to choose one of these cars at random what is the probability that the car is yellow, give as a fraction? What is the probability of a customer picking a yellow or a pink car, given as a percentage ? What’s the probability of a customer picking an orange car? The cars vary in colour, and starting time, which means the questions can be varied. Easy to edit the questions for yourself. If you found this resource useful please review.

STARTER MATHS BUNDLE| Function Machine| ∞ worksheets| Number, %, Fractions, and More| Solutions

STARTER MATHS BUNDLE| Function Machine| ∞ worksheets| Number, %, Fractions, and More| Solutions

29 Worksheet Tabs Included! Ideal starter for KS3, although could be used for younger or older as differentiation available. FOUR files are attached as a part of this resource, yet you can create an infinite number of worksheets all with attached solutions. The general concept has been derived from a function machine. You start with 9 input numbers which need to go through two operations, subsequently creating an output. There are a total of four operation pairs, so there up to 36 answers students need to find. Working alongside this is a more challenging sheet, which involves the students using the ‘output’ numbers first to work out the ‘input’ numbers, and hence understanding the importance of working backwards through the operations. Most importantly, both the basic style worksheet and the challenging worksheet work in conjunction with each other, such that they both link to the same solutions, which are provided. You click on the arrow tab for a new worksheet OR alternatively the ‘delete’ button. Topics included are four operations (including negative numbers); percentages of amount, and percentage increase decrease; fractions of amounts, and fraction increase and decrease; and standard. form.

Free worksheet version of this is TES RECCOMENDED! https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks3-percentage-bubbles-calculator-non-calculator-8-free-problems-11871070 Each of the questions involve an extension question, in which students sum all of their answers, and check it matches the correct answer for the sum. This is a fantastic feature of the worksheet, as the students can ensure that their answers are correct without unnecessary intervention from the teacher. These sheets have 8 bubbles in total for each question, giving a total of 64 sub-questions. The differing percentages you need to find are consistent for the top left and bottom left problems i.e. for all these problems you need to find 75%, 30%, 50% etc. of the original value. However, these percentages are in a random order for each question. The right hand side problems requires you to find more specific percentages, which will generally require the use of a calculator (but can be done without a calculator). Moreover, the bottom right problem requires you to find percentages greater than 100% as well as less than 100%, which can nicely lead students onto understanding the importance of multipliers in the topic percentages. Due to using highly composite numbers, the resulting amounts, are generally whole numbers. Please review if you found helpful :D

Some of the ratios are simple to simplify, others are more challenging and others you are unable to simplify. There is a cross over with the easy and hard worksheet, because 11 questions are the same. The harder worksheet generally deals with larger numbers, so involves division of larger numbers to fully simplify the ratios. The third tab involves ratio of amounts, and if you want to you can link this to the first sheet, the easy sheet, because the ratio of amounts you have to find involve the same ratios given by sheet one. If you want different questions for the third sheet [so they don’t link to the first worksheet] you just click the ‘new worksheet’ button. As this is a workhseet generator there is an infinite number of questions that can be generated. Finally, the worksheet has been paired with ‘macro buttons’ making it very easy to reveal the answers of the questions, alongside the questions, within seconds. This means the sheets are great when students are working from the board or working from a worksheet.
