Lesson on creating/colouring in MANDALAS.
A little bit of religion and art thrown in there - makes a great cross curricular activity.
Two tasks for easy differentiation and worksheets attached.
Great End of term activity (mandala are used for meditation so calms pupils!)

This is a complete data handling project .
The powerpoint goes through each graph or calculation bit by bit. Then asks the pupils to apply to the set of data,
At each task there is a challenge.
Tasks include
Grouping data
Pie Chart
Stem and Leaf
Cumulative Frequency
Mean from grouped table
Frequency Polygon
Worksheets have been made for lower ability that they just have to fill in (all numbered according to task)
Can be used from KS3 - KS4
Using as a final project (estimated to last 4/5 lesson with presentation.
Great end of term activity that still involves a lot of maths, all in one power-point.

This great Lesson was planned after teaching a class how to find the circumference of a circle. There are five functional questions involving on the circumference of circles and semi circles.
Using the pupils knowledge of a fitbit I created questions which are relevant and more functional with mutli steps to get to the answer. Real life situations are given and the pupils must think about what the question is asking them. All questions involve pupils to find the circumference and apply it to other information given within the question.
Excellent as a challenge or as a whole lesson.
Answers are provided with reasons for each step so provides easy self-marking opportunities.
Great task to engage pupils at the end of term.

This resources contains 6 revision clocks all based on Foundation GCSE Revision. All questions are taken off past papers and slightly changed to get pupils used to the more wordy content.
The revision clock is great if you have reluctant students , you can show them how much time they should spend on each question- I have bottom set and they love this, and actually produce more work than in most other 'revision' Lessons.
All sheets were made A3 however can be easily shrunk down, and ALL have answers. This resources works really well as an independent activity which makes it suitable for cover work, revision or End of Term.

This Great series of Lessons covers all areas of Standard Form for Foundation and Higher Students. Works on the method of Mastery and completely understanding the skill by doing it several different ways.
Starts with population of england question to try and get pupils to see why standard form may be useful, also linking to indice work and negative powers of ten etc.
Examples of numbers to standard form and vice versa with two levels of questions and answers.
Adding and subtracting example, with questions and answers.
Mix up task attached -Number written in Standard form , Standard form additions and standard form subtractions. Students must find the equivalent groups and fill into the table. Problem Solving skills will be tested as 4 places in the table are missing (this also stops pupils from just guessing! ) and pupils will have to work backwards or create their own standard form addition/ subtraction. Added extension is for pupils to convert standard form answers into 'normal' numbers at the end. Answers provided.
Multiplying and dividing examples then differentiated questions, with Solar System Task ( I haven't attached this as it is not mine - However there are several free versions available on TES ).
Finally there are some 'Applying' Questions were students have to use standard form to apply to real life problems.

Great Lesson on Introduction to Trigonometry lessons ( I spent two lessons this, however could take longer or shorter depending on level of the class). Aimed at Foundation KS4 (Lower Ability /SEN) , would also work well at KS3.
Starter - Linked to Pythagoras knowledge. Labeling sides explanation and quick questions (works well on whiteboards).
(At this stage my group needed more practice on labeling sides , I found a great Worksheet on TES , so I haven't attached it but its easy to find!)
Introduction to the word SOHCAHTOA - what it all stands for etc - good for students to take notes here.
3 very clear examples on how too use trigonometry for finding a missing length shown clearly through animations.
Then practice for students with answers.
Finally a plenary - which is a applied trig question where they will need to drawn their own picture - great to stretch students.

This is a fully differentiated and Student Lead Lesson on Factorising Quadratics aimed at high ability KS3 & KS4. Would work great as revision for Higher and Foundation GCSE. This lesson focuses on practice and mastery of the skill.
I had a class who's levels of understanding how to factorise a quadratic was so varied! So I created this lesson. I gave them a target based on a mini whiteboard assessment This could easily worked with marking the pupils books or based on some sort of previous assessment (whiteboards / mini test etc) . They then worked on this and progressed themselves forward.
The Progress ladders attached are shown to pupils at the start of lesson so they can see where they should get too by the end of the lesson (these are nice to print out and give pupils at the end of the lesson to complete to show how far they have come in the lesson) .
4 differentiated stages either can be projected onto the board or print off in small columns so students can stick them in and work opposite. All answers included (I usually stick these at the front so students can check their own work)
This really helped me let the students work at the correct level without stopping others from progressing. The students were very independent with progressing themselves and marking.

Another discovery task where students measure triangles and square numbers and see if they can spot a connection between a squared, b squared and c squared. Some students need a bit of hint but most spot the connection.
Introduction to the 'theorem' and a bit of history on Pythagoras to engage students.
Examples on how to work out a questions, using 'boxes' and without boxes.
Questions for pupils to try with answers.
Back to the Learning ladder for pupils to now try questions they didn't know how to start early.
Quick quiz at the end based on key facts about Pythagoras and his theorem.
Pupils really enjoyed this lesson and loved the practical measuring tasks and it seemed to help them understand the next steps clearly !
