6 best buy problems in the style of the new AQA GCSE exam. Each problem asks students to compare three different deals. Students will need to be able to find percentage amounts, fraction of amounts, add and subtract fixed costs and find compound interest.
Each best buy problem can easily be turned into am open ended activity by analysing at which point each of the deals will be best value (if possible).
Worked solutions for each problem are also included.
This sheet explores which triangles are possible or impossible to construct when given three side lengths. Students will practise using compasses and ruler to construct side-side-side triangles and also think about generalising so that the problem can be solved without drawing. This worksheet is based on a past SAT question.
1 sheet, 7+ enlargements.
This sheet requires students to enlarge shapes on a grid from a centre of enlargement. The main task uses positive scale factors of 2 or 3. An extension can be to use a scale factor of 0.5 for some of the shapes.
An activity where students must spot and describe number patterns on shaded BLANK 100 grids. The activity covers odds, evens, multiples, factors, primes, square numbers, cube numbers, triangles numbers, powers of 2 and 3 and some other familiar number sequences. Includes teacher notes and answers.
This activity invites students to draw sketches of 2D and 3D shapes with certain perimeters, area and volume. It encourages students to think about easy and hard examples including circular shapes in terms of pi. It is an open task therefore students can use whatever shapes they know already and could then be encouraged to explore others they do not.
