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

(10)
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 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

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 KS4 Cross number worksheet, 4 FREE worksheets included, differentiated, solutions

(3)
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. You 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.

KS3 Percentage Bubbles, Calculator, Non Calculator, 8 FREE problems
skierkrowlandsskierkrowlands

KS3 Percentage Bubbles, Calculator, Non Calculator, 8 FREE problems

(9)
This is a FREE resource of 8 percentage problems. There are 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.

KS3 Division Wheel 3 Worksheets with Answers, Starter
skierkrowlandsskierkrowlands

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 :).

Simultaneous Equations Worksheet, Linear / Quadratic, 3 Levels Difficulty, Differentiated, Answers
skierkrowlandsskierkrowlands

Simultaneous Equations Worksheet, Linear / Quadratic, 3 Levels Difficulty, Differentiated, Answers

(1)
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.

Relay Race Excel Spreadsheet used to input answers to ANY relay race to save time for the teacher

Relay Race Excel Spreadsheet used to input answers to ANY relay race to save time for the teacher

(1)
Whenever I am doing a relay race I always find it quite monotonous that students are constantly getting me to check their answers during a lesson. Therefore, I’ve devised a spreadsheet to enable me to facilitate learning of questions rather than constantly spending the lesson to check if 100 answers are correct. Also this is good at limiting cheating when answers just become chinese whispers. Basically you input the questions’ answers at the bottom of the spreadsheet and then click hide. Students then use your keyboard to input there answers for individual or sets of questions and if there answer is correct the cell will be hilighted in green. This gives a great way for students and teachers alike to monitor their progress throughout the answer. Beware you may need to set out some rules about how often they can input answers to prevent a queue from forming at the computer.
Function Machine Style Worksheets for Percentages of Amounts, Differentiated, Engaging, Solutions
skierkrowlandsskierkrowlands

Function Machine Style Worksheets for Percentages of Amounts, Differentiated, Engaging, Solutions

(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.

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.
