Previously TES recommended author of 3 resources. Interactive resources, many of which involve Powerpoint or Excel to make Maths easier to plan and engage! Specifically I like to design repetitive yet engaging resources, which are often progressively difficult to foster calm lessons , create routine and encourage excitement in learning. 4th year of teaching, got an IMA scholarship for my potential ideas. Currently working in Spain in an international school, originally trained in England.

This worksheet is designed for pi day for low ability year 8s. The idea is each number is assigned a picture, which is given in the key, and this should help students derive a story which will help them memorise the first several digits of pi.
KS3 Division Wheel 3 Worksheets with Answers, Starter

KS3 Division Wheel 3 Worksheets with Answers, Starter

(2)
This resource is great for revising knowledge on division, practise ‘bus stop method’ or to be used as a quick numeracy starter. The idea is you start at the top of the division wheel, and as you move vertically down the sheet you are given numbers that are smaller than the original number. Therefore, the aim of the student is to work out what they need to divide by in order to get from the original number to the new number. There are 8 division problems per worksheet, and each worksheet is compact such that three copies of each worksheet fit on one side of A4. All of the numbers fit together in a circular pattern or a wheel. Please review if you found helpful :).

Standard form function machine style worksheet, 4 worksheets, Matching Solutions

Standard form function machine style worksheet, 4 worksheets, Matching Solutions

(1)
This is a free sample of my function machine style resource, specifically for standard form. There is a choice of 4 worksheets (2 easy and 2 hard). Each pair of easy and hard worksheets have matching solutions. The easy worksheet just has numbers in the input grid [the red grid in the centre of the page], wheras the hared worksheet just has numbers in the output grids [the four green grids on the outskirts of the worksheet]. The worksheet is easy and intuitive to use: starting with an ‘input’ number you need to apply an operation [listed below the green grids] to deduce an output. This process is repeated for 9 different numbers, for four diferent output grids altogether, yielding 36 solutions. If you liked this resource how about buying the generator version of this? https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/standard-form-starter-last-minute-maths-colourful-differentiated-worksheets-solutions-11850320 Or a bundle of 4 resources. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/starter-maths-bundle-function-machine-worksheets-number-pc-fractions-and-more-solutions-11692992 Please review if you found this useful :D.
Improper and Proper Fractions of  an Integer, with solutions, Differentiated, Starter or Plenary

Improper and Proper Fractions of an Integer, with solutions, Differentiated, Starter or Plenary

(1)
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 fractions of amounts. So you need to find five sixths of 30 for example. 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. Has been used many times successfully within classrooms for year 7s, 8s, and year 9s.

KS3 Mathematics Starter Bundle

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).

29 Worksheet Tabs Included! 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. Has been used many times successfully within classrooms for year 7s, 8s, and year 9s. Please leave reviews if you found this resource helpful!

Angles in polygons, including exterior and exterior; Angles within circles; Pictures, Videos and Worksheets

6 Resources
This is a bundle of 6 of my resources regarding angles! 5 documents are generators, which means at the click of any button you are able to generate a new worksheet. This provides a calm atmosphere in learning, familiarity in resources for students and can demonstrate progress over time. 3 of these documents are worksheet generators, which require students to find angles within polygons by viewing the polygons themselves. The easiest worksheet just regards triangles and straight lines. The medium worksheet involves quadrilaterals, simple algebra, and straight lines. Whereas the last worksheet involves a multitude of polygons. Each come with a supporting tab call a ‘cheat sheet’, containing an answer for every question listed on a separate bit of paper. These can be individually cut up and folded along the dotted line to act as supporting answers, You can use thesse at your discretion to support the least able, enabling these worksheets to be low access high challenge. Furthermore, another of these documents also requires you to find missing angles and lengths within various polygons by using algebra. Helpfully there is are hints which can either be included, or not included on the sheet, as they are on the sheet’s extremities so can easily can be cut off. Another worksheet regards angles, but this time they are entirely worded question. Testing students knowledge on exterior angles as well as interior angles this time. Finally the last document is a powerpoint involving 5 videos of me hand drawing different circle theorems. Each of the videos are silent but supported by questioning on the screen. This has proved to be a very useful tool in maximising student engagement, and getting the students to come up with the questions and answers themselves whilst watching the video, whilst you are able to help individuals or manage behaviour as required. Each of the videos, has futher suggestion points, and each can be paused and resumed at a pace that suits your class. Please review if you found useful :)

Take a number for a walk fun starter / plenary activity involving 4 operations

(0)
Is a tool in order for children to manipulate numbers, using the four operations. The children start with a beginning number, and they have to manipulate the number up to 17 times in order to get an answer. There are three levels of difficulty on this worksheet. And I have found this to be a very exciting starter or plenary activity. It can be used with all different types of age groups, because there is a level of challenge and differentiation depending on the level chosen, the time given to the children. Questions can be revealed on the screen at once or you can slowly give you operations to the students from the board.
