KS2 KS3 KS4 Times Tables / Multiplication Grid Free Resource, 12 page Word Document, Easy to use

(5)
This resource comes with EIGHT different times tables grids which you need to fill out the missing entries. There are both smaller grids (6x6) and larger grids (12x12) which involve a variety of differentiated problems. Some of the grids have row and column headings, whereas other involve a challenge to work out what the row and column headings are. Great way to revise times tables, or a settler in a lesson. The challenge problems involve loads of other sub topics, such as deducing ‘factors’, ‘solving equations’ and more. Please review if you found helpful. This is a sample of my resource https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/times-table-multiplication-grid-worksheet-generator-easy-to-challenging-solutions-ready-to-use-11866269 .

Function Machine Style Worksheets, Differentiated, Engaging, with Solutions

(4)
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. Has been used many times successfully within classrooms for year 7s, 8s, and year 9s. Please leave reviews if you found this resource helpful!

KS3 Fraction Bubbles, Fractions of Amounts, Worksheet Generator, Mix of questions, Solutions

(0)
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.

KS3, KS4, Number Ordering Plenary Game, Ideal for low ability for learners but great for all

(0)
The idea of this game is for students to put the numbers 1-15 in their exercise book, and write the number 1 on line 1 and the number 1000 on line 15. They are then revealed numbers one by one, and their aim is to try and fit all the numbers onto the number line in a chronological order. Once this process is complete you can ask the class who obtained the largest number of correctly ordered numbers. You can change the maximum number to something greater i.e. ‘10000’ or something smaller i.e. ‘300’. Also due to this being an excel worksheet generator there are an infinite number of answers that can be available. This is a great game to end the lesson with and always engages students.
KS2, KS3, KS4  Four operations number snake puzzle; Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division

KS2, KS3, KS4 Four operations number snake puzzle; Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division

(0)
This is a puzzle activity involving the four operations used as a starter or a plenary. I have used this with top set year 7 and bottom set year 8, because there are many different difficulty levels as seen by the video. This task acts as a puzzle as the students need to begin at the ‘start’ number and find the finish number, which requires 15 steps. The children start with a number such as ‘23’ and need to apply 15 operations to it, often involving all four operaitons, in order to obtain the finish number. Alternatively another type of worksheet contained within this resource requires children to work out the missing operations between these 16 numbers. There are so many different types of worksheets, generally graded as an easy, medium or hard (green, orange, red) provided at the top of the screen. In addition to this the worksheets provided include negative numbers, positive numbers, large and very small numbers.

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.

KS2 KS3 Addition Pyramids Worksheet Generator, Differentiated, Negative & Decimal numbers included

(0)
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.

KS3 KS4 Simplifying & Factorising 4-6 Term Expressions into Brackets, Challenge, Answers, Generator
skierkrowlandsskierkrowlands

KS3 KS4 Simplifying & Factorising 4-6 Term Expressions into Brackets, Challenge, Answers, Generator

(0)
This worksheet involves 24 questions, which all have either 4 or 6 terms in, which need to be simplified before factorisation into double brackets. When you factorise these expressions, we have both examples of the variable with a coefficient equal to 1, and greater than one. The first section of the worksheet is easier, as it has just 4 terms that need to be factorised, and a coefficient of the variable being 1 in both brackets. Whereas the latter section of the worksheet is more challenging, as it has 6 terms that need to be factorised, and a coefficient of the variable being greater than 1 in at least one of the factorised. There are also harder questions which are attached which involve you having to solve the quadratics, rather than just factorising. This involves setting the equations equal to zero and finding the value of the unknown for two brackets. This worksheet is a generator, providing an infinite number of opportunites for anew worksheet. The worksheet is designed such that all 24 questions, at every click of a ‘new worksheet’ button are unique. That is 24 out of the 26 letters of the alphabet are used for a new worksheet, randomly, creating uniquenes. Furthermore, the signs of this worksheet are changed every time you generate another worksheet. Finally, the order of terms for the latter questions are varied, in order to teach students’ the importance of looking for like terms before collecting terms and simplifying, and finally factorising.

Subtraction Worksheet Bundle for Subtracting 2, 3 and 4 digits all problems involving borrowing

(0)
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. Please review this resource if you found helpful :)

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.

SCALE FACTOR / PROPORTION worksheet involving interesting PHOTOGRAPHS

(0)
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.

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.
