KS2 KS3 Addition & Subtraction Pyramids, 20 problems including positive & negative numbers, decimals

(3)
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.

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

(1)
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.

KS3 KS4 Fraction Grid Worksheet Generator, Infinite Worksheets, Matching Solutions, Differentiated

(0)
This worksheet GENERATOR contains 11 different fraction grids which you need to find the missing fractions in. There are a range of easy, medium, and hard resources, as well as use of all four operations. At a click of a button you can generate a whole new set of 11 worksheets. Each worksheet is a 5x5 grid, where the first row and column provide different fractions as headers. You have to apply different operations to these fractions in order to fill out the remaining 4x4 grid, which falls between these row and column headers. All solutions are included. The easy worksheets for the operation ‘adding’ involve the column and row headers being added together, given the denominator of the resulting fraction. The medium worksheets involve adding the column and row headers, without the hint of the given denominator of the resulting fraction. The hard worksheets, involving having to solve an equation, to work out the resulting fractions which are the row and column headers.

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. To generate an infinte number of worksheets simply press the ‘new worksheet’ button. EASY. Please leave a review if you found helpful :D.

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. 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.
KS3 Mathematics Starter Bundle
skierkrowlands

KS3 Mathematics Starter Bundle

8 Resources
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).

Calm a Class in Seconds, Great for after Lunch Lessons, or Love Island Season

(0)
Have you had your lessons disrupted because of chat about the latest reality show, or love island… Watch the video below for more information or read: The aim of this timer ‘game’ on excel is to calm students down when they have come into the classroom in a hyperactive manner, such as after break or lunchtime. It is a quick tool to use, but can be very benefitial in its effects on students’ behaviour and encouraging Mathematical minds in a competitive manner. Alternatively it can be used as a tool to get students to get a better feel of ‘time’ by guessing how many seconds have elapsed over a given period of time. The aim is you get students to rest their head on the desks and you start and stop a timer provided for you on excel. This timer can be usefully hidden from prying eyes. After a number of seconds, or perhaps minutes (if your class is particularly lively), teachers can then obtain guesses from the class. These times are then subsequently typed into a column within the spreadsheet, and can later be compared through the click of the button to the actual elapsed time. There are macro buttons for comparing the time. Firstly you can reveal the differences in time between their guess and the actual time, additionally you can click a button to reveal a winner. This gets students to get a better feel for time, understanding the difference between seconds and minutes, ensuring a calm start to the lesson and gets students engaged in a competitive manner.

Percentage amounts | LAST MINUTE MATHS STARTER |Colourful Differentiated |∞ worksheets| Solutions

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. You click on the arrow tab for a new worksheet OR alternatively the ‘delete’ button. When you print make sure you click print ‘current sheet’ Has been used many times successfully within classrooms for year 7s, 8s, and year 9s. Please leave reviews if you found this resource helpful!

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.

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.

• 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.
