Worksheet on reflection of shapes through lines on an axis. Exam style questions!
Three exercises involving drawing a specific horizontal or vertical line on an axis, then reflecting the shape, reflecting a shape through a diagonal line and finding and naming the line of reflection from a reflection.
Hope this helps some of you save some time and effort in a worksheet heavy topic!
Thanks =]

Used with a middle ability year 7 class to introduce how to use tables to find coordinates for straight line graphs.
Comes with axes and tables already put, 2 worksheets to a page.
Fully colour coordinated, differentiated questions.
Has learning objectives and progress tick sheets.
If you like my lessons or think there is more I could do to improve them, please rate and comment!
Thanks =]

Whole lesson used with a middle ability year 9, but can be edited for your needs.
Introduces how to multiply, divide and use brackets for numbers with indices. Also stretches students with simplifying indices with two operations (grade B/6).
Includes learning objectives with progress tick sheet, fully differentiated questions with answers and made with new GCSE curriculum in mind.
Please edit for your needs and review if you like my presentations!

Everyone knows that when it comes to teaching straight line graphs there is so much more preparation that needs to be done! But hopefully this helps some people out..
Here is a ready to go lesson on how to draw and name straight lines in the form of y=mx+c! I used this particular lesson with a middle set year 10 as more of a recap, but I have also used the same activities with KS3.
It has a full powerpoint with animated instructions on what to do, but also includes, 2 to a page worksheets, with axes already drawn on, for drawing and naming the lines. All you have to do is print!
If you like my lessons or think I could do more to make them better, please comment and rate =]!

Used with a middle set year 9 class, starting the new GCSE curriculum.
Starts with how to use prime factor trees to write a number as a product of its prime factors, then onto how to use that to find the HCF and LCM of two numbers.
Includes starter, learning objectives page, differentiated questions with answers and learning objective tick sheets!
Ready to use straight away or can be edited.

Complete lesson in adding and subtracting fractions.
Talks through finding the lowest common multiple of denominators and multiplying up for the numerators.
I used this lesson with a middle ability year 8 class, with the new format of life without levels!
Includes starter, learning objectives with tick sheets and fully differentiated questions with answers included.
Please edit for your needs!

Everything you need to introduce inequalities, solve inequalities and draw and read graphs of inequalities! I used this set of lessons with a middle ability year 10 class working on the higher GCSE, but the first lessons are definitely usable for all of KS3 and 4. Lessons are ready to go!
All lessons include a 5 a day starter and progress tick sheet with differentiated questions and answers included!
Lesson 1:
Introduction into inequalities!
This lesson goes over terminology and symbols of inequalities, as well as how to represent inequalities on number lines. This is a lesson I really enjoy teaching as there are many fun whole class activities to do, which branch off for 5min individual activities to solidify the new skills being taught.
I have also uploaded a worksheet needed for the activities and a CARD SORT for an extension task, which have the answers on the PPT.
Lesson 2:
Solving Inequalities!
Introducing how to solve inequalities, in the same method as solving equations. This lesson goes up to solving two step equations, but the next two lessons can be added onto this depending on the ability of your students.
Lesson 3:
Solving Inequalities!
Starts with a recap on how to solve equations with unknowns on both sides. I decided to just touch on more advanced equations as I wanted my students to focus on inequalities with unknowns on both sides. I have also used some of the same two step equations from last lesson for those students who need more time to consolidate their knowledge.
Lesson 4:
Solving inequalities!
This lesson focuses on when there are two constraints on the inequality. As I said previously, lessons 2-4 can be put together depending on the ability of your students. The questions used are extensions of the previous lessons so they can carry on from one another seamlessly.
Lesson 5:
Inequalities on graphs!
Starts with a recap on drawing horizontal and vertical lines, as well as diagonal lines on a graph, however, this can be taken out if your students don’t need it. It then goes through, step by step, how to draw and read inequalities from a graph with animations on each step. Worksheets are also uploaded and answers are also included on the PPT.
I hope that this bundle of lessons helps you and saves you some time! If you like my lessons or think there is something more I can do, please rate or comment! I really enjoy these lessons and hope you do too!
Thanks! =]

Lessons on how to find and prove shapes are similar, with their areas and volumes! And how to find missing lengths, areas and volumes.
I used these lessons with a middle ability year 10 class, but can be mixed about for any ability or age.
All lessons include:
5 a day starter,
differentiated questions WITH answers,
animated, simple examples,
plenary
Lesson 1:
Similar shapes.
Explains the definition of similar shapes and how to prove they are similar by finding all angles and sides are the same. Examples of how to find an use scale factor to prove this. Independent questions for students to work on with an exam style question for extension work.
I have also included some extra slides I did not get round to using on how to use ratio to find missing sides and name the shape game to finish off the lesson.
Lesson 2:
Finding area of similar shapes.
Clear, simple, animated examples on how to use linear scale factor to find area scale factor and therefore missing areas of similar shapes. Worksheet included for students to work on individually, as well as questions which can be displayed on the board.
Lesson 3:
Finding volume of similar shapes.
Extension from last lesson, using the linear scale factor to find the scale factor used for volume of similar shapes. Clear, simple, animated examples with worksheets for students to complete, as well as questions which can be displayed on the board.
Includes extension on working backwards to find the linear scale factors from area and volume scale factor, and extra extension activities which I did not get round to using myself.
Hope some of you find this helpful and it saves you some time and stress! If you like my resources or think there is something more I can do to make them better, please comment and rate!
Thank you =]]!

Resource to go with Solving equations bundle.
A rally for two students, solving and peer assessing work on solving equations including unknowns on both sides and equations with fractions.
Hope you like this resource!
Thanks!
