I have been a Maths teacher for five years and love to make colourful and innovative resources that have a range of activities to keep your classes motivated and loving Maths!

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!

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 ready to use lesson sequence!
From introducing surds, calculating with surds, rationalising the denominator and expanding brackets with surds.
I have used this sequence with middle/top ability year 10 classes and split it up into up to six lessons, but can edit where necessary to make lessons longer or shorter.
Made with new GCSE curriculum in mind.
Includes:
5 a day starter,
learning objectives with tick sheets
fully differentiated questions with answers and
worked examples.
I love teaching Surds, so I hope you enjoy teaching these lessons and they save you some time!
If you love the lessons or you think there is something I could do to improve them, please rate or comment!

Everything you need to introduce circles to KS3, as well as challenging KS4 classes with arc length and area of sectors. These lessons are ready to go, so I hope it saves you some time and effort!
All lessons include a 5 a day starter, a progress tick sheet, differentiated questions WITH answers and a plenary.
Lesson 1 :
Circumference.
Whole lesson introducing parts of the circle and how to find the circumference of a circle. Challenges classes with finding perimeters or sectors as well as finding the diameter when given a circumference.
Lesson 2:
Area of circles.
Finding the area of a circle with functional extension questions and a printable differentiated worksheet to extend students.
Lesson 3:
Sectors of circles.
Extending how to find area of circles, by finding fractions of each circle. Shows examples of finding halves and quarters of circles to support understanding of how to find a fraction of the area of a full circle. Includes a functional pizza question to master the concept in real life situations!
Lesson 4:
Arc Length.
Using the same method used to find the area of sectors, to find arc length. Going through how we would find half and quarter of the circumference and questioning can be used to guide students in to how we would find a fifth of the circumference, eighth, etc and then onto more specific and difficult fractions of the circumference. Leads on from last lesson.
EXTRA!
I have added in an extra learning objective sheet that I made for a homework after the circle topic, to check understanding and progress. This worksheet can also be used in class.
The sheet includes a self assessment area for students.
I hope you like this bundle of circle lessons and resources and it saves you all some time and effort. If you do like it, or think I could do more, please rate and comment! Thank you!

Full bundle of ready to go lessons !
troduction of expanding and factorising brackets! I used these lessons with a middle ability year 9 class, but they could be used with any class who needs an introduction or recap into expanding and factorising single and double brackets!
Each lesson includes:
A starter,
learning objectives with progress tick slide,
Examples to work through with the class,
differentiated and colour coded questions WITH answers,
plenary.
Lesson 1:
Expanding single brackets!
Introduction of expanding single brackets and how to expand and simplify when there is more than one single bracket. Also includes a differentiated worksheet to challenge students and a simplifying expressions worksheet for any struggling students.
Lesson 2:
Factorising single brackets!
Starts with a recap on finding factors in algebraic terms. Examples for factorising single brackets with differentiated questions. Finish lesson with factorising BINGO! Includes the bingo cards and checklist to call out.
Lesson 3:
Expanding double brackets!
Starts with recap of expanding single brackets. Examples to work through with the class and differentiated questions with answers straight from expanding AND simplified.
Lesson 4!
Factorising quadratic equations!
Starts with an activity to show how to find the sum and product of two numbers, then introduction into how to use those skills to factorise a quadratic. Plenary on factorising a quadratic with a square number.
ALSO!
Learning objective sheet to give as a consolidation activity or as a homework, with a question from each lesson and a self assessment RAGG for students to fill in!
Hope you enjoy my lessons! If you like them, or think there is something more I can do to improve them, please comment and rate! Thanks =]

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!

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!

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 =]!

Whole lesson ready to use on the introduction into Standard form. Used with middle set year 9, but can be edited to your needs.
Includes learning objectives with tick sheet, differentiated questions with answers on changing numbers to standard form and vice versa.
Moves from an introduction to writing standard form to calculating with standard form. Set up as two lessons but can be combined if needed.

Hi 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 =]]!
