This worksheet has been designed predominantely for KS3, there are 3 options in terms of the worksheet tabs. Each worksheet contains 8 linking division problems. The first tab is designed to optimise printing because there are 4 worksheets on one side of A4, the second tab gives you a question sheet (varying difficulty) and the third tab provides the answers. This is a worksheet generator so you can have an inifinite number of questions with matching answers. The idea is you start with a number at the top of the wheel, and you have to work out what you need to divide this number by to get to the number below - ultimately finding a missing number in a division equation. The process of this worksheet specifically involves students asking themselves how they get from one number to another by dividing. For example, in the example in the left picture students would ask themselves how they get from:
720 to 360 (divide by 2)
720 to 144 (divide by 5)
720 to 72 (divide by 10)
360 to 45 (divide by 8)
72 to 9 (divide by 8)
144 to 36 (divide by 4)
36 to 9 (divide by 4)
45 to 9 (divide by 5)
• Division worksheet generator
• Variety of smaller and larger numbers
used as the largest number.
• Matching answers
• Easy to use, quick to print!
• Compact on printing (3 sheets per A4)
• Structure of sheet stays the same so
good measuring progress / increasing
consistency.*

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.

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.

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. If you have found this useful please leave a review.

This worksheet generator gives you an infinite possible questions at a click of the ‘new worksheet’ button on every tab. Free worksheet version of this is TES RECCOMENDED!

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.

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 4 tab worksheet generator. The first two tabs regard simplifying 20 different ratios. 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.

A 144 Powerpoint presentation which I have made to include all the numbers which are divisible by 1-12, which are between 1-144. You can choose specific division, such as ‘Division by 7’ OR you can test on all of these 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.
Clear instructions included. Really good to create a competitive, yet useful learning environment for the students.

14 slide powerpoint presentation, in which every other 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.

• 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.
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.

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. Please review if you found helpful :D
