Interactive resources, many of which involve Powerpoint or Excel to make Maths easier to plan and engage.

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.
For description of how this works see:

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.

This is a worksheet including 18 simultaneous equations questions for linear and quadratic equations. This is a differentiated resource containing three levels of difficulty. Section 1 only has the variables ‘a’ and ‘b’, and for all 6 questions, a few decimal answers and a matching coefficient in each pair of eqautions. Section 2 has varying variables 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 questions 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.

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 and a plenary.

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.

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 (such as using instagram). Worksheet is targetted for the more able. Comes with DETAILED solutions.

A 144 Powerpoint presentation which I have made to include all teh times tables 1-12. You can choose specific times tables, such as the ‘7 times table’ OR you can test on all the times tables in a random order. Great for using as a whole class activity or for individual use as a homework activity. Every slide includes an answer.

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 fractions of amounts. So you need to find five sixths of 30 for example.

14 slide powerpoint presentation, in which every slide includes a video. Every other slide is a video of a venn diagram being shaded in, and the remaining slides are videos of the notational answers. You could use this resource in several ways. Firstly you could use the turquoise colour slides to give a Venn diagram notation, such as P(AnB’) and then you could get students to demonstrate their answers in their book. Alternatively you could use the pictoral videos, and ask the students what you think the equivalent notation is.

This is a 24 question worksheet based on the topic ‘Factorising’. Students firstly have to simplify an expression with 4 or more terms before they are able to factorise the expression correctly. There are a variety of variables used within this worksheet, and examples of the coefficient of x being equal to one or more. There is also an opportunity for students to utilise their knowledge of ‘negative numbers’ and ‘collecting like terms’ in order to ultimately factorise.
Please see updated document for corrected question 1.

This is a choice of 4 different worksheets testing on the topic of percentages of amounts, through the mode of a function machine. Two of the worksheet are ‘Easy Questions’ whereas the other two worksheets are 'Hard Questions. For the easy questions students start with with a red grid in the central of the worksheet containing 9 different numbers, which is the input. They then need to find a percentage of all 9 of these numbers, such as finding ‘20%’ of the original numbers, obtaining an output number. This process is repeated four times, for four differing percentages which are both greater and smaller than 100%. The difficult worksheets differently start with output numbers, so students need to understand how to reverse the process, and to be able to divide by a multiplier ratehr than multiply by the multiplier. A resource which is ‘ready to go’, and both the easy and difficult worksheets are linked usefully by the same solutions. Please leave a review if you found this helpful.
