Ideal starter for KS3, although could be used for younger or older as differentiation available.
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. The operation for this specific function machine involves four operations, and negative numbers. So you start with 6 and then ‘x6 +2’. 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. The picture provided demonstrates the answers to one of the potential worksheets.
You click on the arrow tab for a new worksheet OR alternatively the ‘delete’ button.
Has been used many times successfully within classrooms for year 7s, 8s, and year 9s.

This is based on my free resource ‘angles within shapes’, and is a very useful generator. Comes with optional ‘hints’ which helps with differentiation. Increasing in difficulty. Been used sucessfully with many classes, including bottom set year 8 (whom of which a student managed to remember this topic within an exam scenario).

This is a worksheet generator, each sheet containing one question repeated twice (to fit easily onto one side of A4). Each question has 8 sub questions regarding finding a fraction of the given amount. The given amount is always a highly composite number, and the fractional amounts that you have to find are always integers, and are a mix of proper, imporper, simplified and not simplified fractions. The denominator of some of the fractions can be as large as twenty. Therefore, some of the sub questions require you to find ‘3 twentieths’ of the original value given.

Two problems are included
First problem is repeated 3 times on one sheet for ease of printing
Second problem is repeated twice to optimise printing
First problem regards solely angles within a triangle.
Second problem regards angles within a triangle, quadrilateral and the harder sheet 2 includes alternate angles (the lattter doesn’t have to be included).
Cheat sheet, which is a good structure for supporting any ability to complete at least the first task.

This resource contains 20 pyramid addition problems, 10 of which are on a easy sheet and the others on a hard sheet.
For both sheets: the first 5 problems are solely involving positive numbers when adding from the bottom of the pyramid upwards. The 6th problem involves decimals. The 7th, 8th and 9th involving negative numbers, with the 9th dealing with smaller negative numbers. Finally the 10th problem involves both negative numbers and decimals.
The hard worksheet involves the same pyramid as the easy worksheet, however, instead of having to solely add from the bottom of the pyramid, and work your way upwards, you have work down and up through the pyramid using both subtraction and addition.

A whole lesson I designed for an interview lesson for an year 5 independent school. A great visual way for introducing students into the topic of multiplying fractions. This lesson specifically focuses on multiplying proper fractions with whole numbers. The most engaging part of this lesson is the gifs used during the lesson, and the opportunity for students to really master the topic through the use of pictures. Slideshow is 35 slides long and includes a kinaestetic starter, a kinaestetic group activity, several examples, main worksheet, ‘pit stops’, timers, solutions, audio bites and a plenary.

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.

This worksheet is designed for KS3 and KS4 to understand length scale factor problems, which typically involve using a calculator. The worksheet is suitable for most types of children, but is targetted for the more able learner. Children need to use the numbers already provided for the dimensions of the photographs to work out the scale facctor of enlargement. To make this worksheet more challenge written dimensions can be removed, and children can measure the pictures themselves.
Workhseet contains 6 problems, multiple extension questions, and links to real life such as Instagram. In addition to this the worksheet has an example on how to complete the questions.
I often find teaching the topic of scale factor quite dull. As a result I have tried to make it more exciting by using images I have taken from various trips to different countries, and relating the worksheet to real life experiences of the students. Comes with DETAILED solutions.
Length scale factor requires you to work out what is the multiplicative factor you need in order to get from one length to another.

An infinite number of problems generated just by clicking the ‘new worksheet’ tab.
This excel document contains 5 tabs. An easy worksheet, hard worksheet, answer tab, new worksheet tab and a blank grid tab (the latter useful for printing out blank grids). Both the easy and hard worksheet have 10 problems each. The first 5 problems are solely involving positive numbers when adding from the bottom of the pyramid upwards. The 6th problem involves decimals. The 7th, 8th and 9th involving negative numbers, with the 9th dealing with smaller negative numbers. Finally the 10th problem involves both negative numbers and decimals. However, you can just print off any given number of problems, meaning that you can differntiate the quantity of quesitons required easily. The hard worksheet involves the same pyramid as the easy worksheet, however, instead of having to solely add from the bottom of the pyramid, and work your way upwards, you have work down and up through the pyramid using both subtraction and addition.

This is a worksheet generator for deducing a missing length of a right angle triangle, given the length of one side and the size of one angle. The worksheet is set up in a way such that all of the variables used in each of the questions are completely unique to the questions. Additionally, there is a variety of different units used within these questions (both metric and imperial) in order to create variety). By the click of a button, such as ‘F9’ or by clicking on the tab which says ‘new worksheet’ and then clicking on the ‘new worksheet’ button a whole new worksheet is generated with matching answers. The answers are given in two forms: unrounded answers, and answers rounded to one decimal place. Every time you generate a new worksheet the variables for each question, unit of measurement and type of problem will differ. This worksheet is great to measure progress over a few lessons, and demonstrate practise makes perfect. Problems include sin, cos, and tan, as well as finding the a variety of missing sides, including the hypotenuse, adjacent and opposite side.

This is a colourful 4x4 grid which all contain 16 answers from the times tables grid. You can regenerate the grid an infinite number of times by clicking the new worksheet button, and once you have chosen the grid you would like to go for you can click ‘reveal question’, which will reveal a multiplication question. In addition to this there are alternate multiplication questions given below for the teacher’s use. This can have a multiple uses in a classroom. Firstly you could use this as part of a silent quiz in the classroom, alternatively you could get pairs of students up to the board and use their hand to ‘splat’ the correct answer, the winner obtaining a point for themselves as an individual or team for example.

This resource is based upon the popular idea of a crossword. However instead of using words, numbers are used instead. Clues are given by the yellow boxes in the forms of expressions. Some of the clues involve one step, whereas others involve two steps. Could use sheet with or without calculator depending on ability of the class. What is particularly special about this resource is that by pressing the button on the new worksheet tab you can get an entirely different set of questions. Therefore, this starter is great as a settler activity over a number of lessons, as it’s general structure stays the same whilst the numbers change for each worksheet. Also, it can show progress over time, as students should get quicker and become more confident at answering these starter questions. You also get two diferentiated resources for each worksheet, as both the easier and harder worksheets provided give the same answers, whilst usefully giving different questions allowing differentiation within a class.

This is a worksheet generator for nth term sequences. It generates linear sequences of increasing difficulty, including decimal sequences, decreasing sequences, and sequences that start on both positive and negative numbers.
There is also a tab for increasing difficulty quadratic sequences. Additionally, you can alternatively give students the ‘nth term rule’ and get them to generate the first few terms.

This is a worksheet generator which involves finding the angles within a hexagon, and all the shapes within this hexagon. At a click of a button you can regeneratre new questions. This worksheet also involves algebra to calculate angles, for examples some of the angles are defined as ‘h+?’, where ‘?’ is an integer. Also included is an exterior angle extension

This is an excel spreadsheet which can generate an infinite number of questions involving subtraction. This exercise is particularly suitable for those who need practice with borrowing when subtracting, as every single problem requires you to do this. There are 9 tabs included within this resources, including the subtraction of 2 digits, 3 digits, and 4 digits (or subtraction of numbers in the tens, hundreds and thousands), alongside this are matching answers.
Subtraction often involves borrowing ‘from the next door neighbour’ and this drill helps build in practice with the importance of getting this skill correct. I have used this with bottom set year 9s to build their confidence with the operation of subtraction.

• Worksheet generator with infinite questions
• 8 questions every worksheet, 2 on mode, 2 on median, 2 on range, and 2 on mean.
• Answers for every worksheet
• Ability to print different worksheets for the same class, using different tabs of the excel spreadsheet, enabling more accurate assessment.
• Saves on printing, 3 worksheets fit on one side of A4
This is a worksheet generator, generating 8 questions regarding mean, median, mode and range of 4 numbers, which are derived each time from a 4x4 grid. The numbers have been devised such that the mean is always an integer, the median may or may not be a whole number (sometimes it is a decimal), the mode may or may not exist, and the range varies between values of 10 and 0.
At a simple click of a button a brand new worksheet is generated, with new numbers in the grid, and a new order of questions. This is great way of quickly assessing students for their understanding after some time spent not revising the topic, or for revising the topic at the end of a topic. Due to this worksheet’s consistent nature it can be used to measure progress over some time.
In addition this worksheet provides an extension, which involves the students adding all 8 answers they have obtained. As a result, if they obtain a number that is correct, therefore they have been able to self-check their own answers in being correct.
Finally an answer key is given with every worksheet, which you can access by simply pressing a macro button. Furthermore, printing is simple with 3 questions fitting on a 'landscape' orientated piece of paper, with an included answer key given in small at the bottom for the teacher, meaning you don't need access to the computer to provide answers if this is not required or wanted.

This is a worksheet generator to generate 18 simultaneous equations questions for linear and quadratic equations. Simply by clicking the ‘new worksheet’ button you generate a new worksheet with differing variables, coefficients and signs. There is an infinite number of possible worksheets, all with matching solutions! This is a differentiated resource containing three levels of difficulty. Section 1 has the same signs, the same variables, a few answers being decimals and a coefficient in each equation to be matching. Section 2 has varying variables, varying signs and unmatching coefficients. Whereas section 3 involves quadratic and linear equation, which touches on the topics ‘changing the subject of the formula’, ‘substitution’, ‘expanding brackets’, ‘factorising’ and ‘solving’. All three sheets make this topic more interesting because of the use of ‘negative numbers’ as answers, as well as understanding the importance of the relationship between different signs.

Ideal starter for KS3, although could be used for younger or older as differentiation available.
The general concept has been derived from a function machine. You start with 9 input numbers, which needs to go through an operation. The operation for this specific function machine is to find percentages of amounts. So you need to find 66% of 30 to the nearest integer. There are a total of four operations 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. The picture provided demonstrates the answers to one of the potential worksheets.
