2022 Summer End of Term Quiz
tpayne89tpayne89

2022 Summer End of Term Quiz

(1)
I’m back with an End of Term quiz after a couple of years of being too busy! New software this time as well. This quiz was built using Genially rather than PPoint which has always had compatability issues. Genially just needs an internet browser :-) It can also be updated without me re-uploading and you re-downloading! The quiz is 8 rounds totalling 80 marks: Picture round (with optional timer) Monthly Roundup Music General Knowledge Movies Subjects (2 Maths, 2 English, 3 Science, 1 Geography, 1 History, 1 Environment) True or False I think you will really enjoy using Genially. Should keep students busy for around an hour depending on your pace (and the class). I’m uploading a little early, but some of us are saying goodbye to GCSE classes in just a few weeks, possibly even earlier if anyone is giving them study leave! Have fun, please review if you like it and feel free to contact me with any problems.

Level 3 CORE Maths in Context Solutions to Practice Materials (Edexcel)

(1)
Scanned PDFs of my written solutions to the Practice Materials released by Edexcel to support teaching Level 3 CORE Maths in Context. You can download the Practice Materials here: https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualifications/edexcel-mathematics-in-context/mathematics-in-context.coursematerials.html#filterQuery=Pearson-UK:Category%2FTeaching-and-learning-materials These practice materials are a great help, particularly with a current lack of past paper content available due to this being such a new course.
2022 Maths Exam Advanced Information Topic Questions for Revision (EDUQAS - Foundation)
tpayne89tpayne89

2022 Maths Exam Advanced Information Topic Questions for Revision (EDUQAS - Foundation)

(1)
Advanced information topic lists for the GCSE Maths exams have been released this year. I have taken the EDUQAS Foundation topic list and provided example questions for each specific topic. Students can use this to help prepare for their exams. Although this document is specific to the EDUQAS exam board and just for the Foundation topics. I think many topics will also be in the other exam board topic lists so this will likely still provide a useful start point with some work already done if you are with EDEXCEL/AQA/OCR etc. File attached as PDF and Word for flexibility of use. Update Answers now also included and a couple of minor errors corrected.

Revision Worksheets for GCSE Maths 9-1 Higher Pearson Textbook (Chapters 1-8) - With Answers

(0)
Since starting the new 9-1 Maths course using the Pearson Higher Textbook (‘Practice, Reasoning and Problem solving Book’) I have been creating these Revision/Consolidation worksheets for my students to revise for end of chapter tests. They have proved very successful and so I have taken the time to pack them all together and provide answers in this bundle resource. Each worksheet is double sided taking about a lesson to complete covering the key skills from each Chapter. They follow the same Scheme as the Pearson textbook but could easily be used more generally, particularly as revision near the end of the year. This bundle includes Chapters 1-8, you can download Ch 9-19 here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/revision-worksheets-for-gcse-maths-9-1-higher-pearson-textbook-chapters-9-19-with-answers-11894234 Alternatively you can download the full bundle (Ch1-19) now here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/revision-worksheets-for-gcse-maths-9-1-higher-pearson-textbook-chapters-1-19-with-answers-11894292 Chapter 1- Number, Chapter 2 - Algebra, Chapter 3 - Interpreting and representing data, Chapter 4 - Fractions, ratio and percentages, Chapter 5 - Angles and trigonometry, Chapter 6 - Graphs, Chapter 7 - Area and Volume, Chapter 8 - Transformations and Constructions.

COMPLETE BUNDLE Since starting the new 9-1 Maths course using the Pearson Higher Textbook (‘Practice, Reasoning and Problem solving Book’) I have been creating these Revision/Consolidation worksheets for my students to revise for end of chapter tests. They have proved very successful and so I have taken the time to pack them all together and provide answers in this bundle resource. Each worksheet is double sided taking about a lesson to complete covering the key skills from each Chapter. They follow the same Scheme as the Pearson textbook but could easily be used more generally, particularly as revision near the end of the year. This resource compiles the two previous resources I had produced covering Chapters 1-8 and Chapters 9-19 respectively. Those resources were each priced at £2, this I am pricing at £3 so that you can save money buying this resource rather than both separately if you wish. So included in this resource are: Chapter 1- Number, Chapter 2 - Algebra, Chapter 3 - Interpreting and representing data, Chapter 4 - Fractions, ratio and percentages, Chapter 5 - Angles and trigonometry, Chapter 6 - Graphs, Chapter 7 - Area and Volume, Chapter 8 - Transformations and Constructions, Chapter 9 - Equations & Inequalities, Chapter 10 - Probability, Chapter 11 - Multiplicative Reasoning, Chapter 12 - Similarity & Congruence, Chapter 13 - More Trigonometry, Chapter 14 - Further Statistics, Chapter 15 - Equations & Graphs, Chapter 16 - Circle Theorems, Chapter 17 - More Algebra, Chapter 18 - Vectors & Geometric Proof, Chapter 19 - Proportion & Graphs. Effectively you are getting a consolidation worksheet for every chapter in a Maths GCSE Higher Textbook for £3 that you can copy and use until your heart’s content representing superb value in my humble opinion ;-p

Maths Escape Room (Online)
tpayne89tpayne89

Maths Escape Room (Online)

(0)
Get your students a device and set them free on this GCSE Maths ‘escape room’ (which actually has multiple rooms). There are 7 levels, each level has a puzzle and a challenge. The puzzle is not particularly Maths related; the challenges are. This escape room is based around Number (future ones planned around other key areas…), topics covered in the challenges are: Times tables Long multiplication/division & checking answers Definitions (crossword) Equivalent fractions Percentage of amount Adding & Subtracting with negatives Currency conversion There is also a ‘bonus’ at the end which allows a student to catch up if they forgot to write down some key elements whilst moving through the game, this has another 7 Maths questions. Questions are all pitched around GCSE foundation level. I hope students (and maybe teachers) will find this fun, it would be a good light-hearted revision lesson or end of term lesson. I imagine most classes will take around an hour completing the game. If they finish early, they could be encouraged to think about designing their own. There is a ‘login’ on slide 1 which allows teachers to jump to the different levels in one-click with the password. Free sample version available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12680055

Introducing the Teacher’s Markbook - Making Excel easy! This Excel file is all you need to bring your Markbook fully into the 21st Century dazzling colleagues and students alike.

This is now the 4th Edition and appears pretty bug free, ty for the feedback :-) Features: Classwork Markbook, Homework Markbook, Gap Analysis/Traffic Light sheets for Tests and Level Trackers for GCSE 9-1, GCSE A*-U and National Curriculum (3a etc.).

Department budget pushed? Reduce your printing bill by up to 75% with these re-configured past papers intended to be printed as A5 booklets. They function as question papers, pupils write their answers on separate paper or in their books. There are 14 past papers in total: 6 of the new specimen papers from the 1-9 syllabus and 8 from the old A*-E syllabus. I have found the old papers helpful in working on pupil's skill base, before then pushing them onto the new papers.

Year 6 Summer Holiday Diary

Year 6 Summer Holiday Diary

This simple resource was part of a scheme run at my last school in the English Department, for which I put together this document upon request. It is a very simple 7 page booklet with one page for each week in the student's Summer holiday ready to be filled in along with a 'Word of the week'. The idea was to keep pupil's writing during the holiday, giving them something to hand-in and giving teachers a view on the quality of the student's writing abilities upon starting Secondary School.

50 Great Youtube Videos (Vol 1) - Tutor/Form/Lesson-Break fillers.

(0)
YouTube has loads of great educational, inspirational, interesting and amusing videos. But finding them takes time, lots of time. I have spent the last few months trawling through for some of the very best videos that should draw the attention of your students for a form/tutor time or an assembly or just a break in the lesson. There are various categories: History, Geography, Engineering, English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Sport, World affairs, Music, Weird & Wonderful, Funny, Food, Animals and Art. I have picked videos that I hope will either entertain, educate or inspire discussion. This could be the perfect solution for those 5-10 minute time fillers that we all have during the week. I will be continuing to search for more videos and will post a Volume 2 as soon as it is ready, it may take another few months again however to ensure all the videos are a high enough standard.
2019 End of Term Summer Quiz

2019 End of Term Summer Quiz

(6)
This will be my third year of Summer Quizzes on TES, trying hard to make those last few lessons of the year run as smooth as possible for the lowest price. The quiz follows the usual structure, including a Picture Round, 12 Months, Film, General Knowledge, Music, Maths (yes…Maths…so it’s totally educational when your HoD pops by…) and following last year’s Twitter battles, this year it’s Instagram Battles. The Quiz is aimed at Secondary School Age and should last a full lesson. Answers are provided along with an answers sheet that pupils can fill out if you wish. Keep an eye out for offers, I will do an early bird offer to give you the opportunity to buy at the lowest price TES will allow. Also included are detailed information on the copyright information of all images used. If you have any issues with media playback for example feel free to drop me an email and I will do my best to sort it out for you: thomas.payne@midkent.ac.uk

End of term fun

2 Resources
Get my end of term summer quiz and maths escape room as a cheaper bundle. Both are great end of term lessons. The escape room will require students having laptops/tablets or booking a computer room. The quiz is not particularly academic and suits a last lesson of the year when you just want to keep everyone happy and the easy life ;-p The escape room would suit a normal lesson quite well, but feels a bit extra so probably the kind of thing you want to hold back for the end of term. It does have plenty of solid maths, so no one could suggest you are taking the easy life ;-p Enjoy!
End of Term Maths Project - Build your own School Block (KS3+KS4)

End of Term Maths Project - Build your own School Block (KS3+KS4)

(0)
In this project students take a leading role designing a new school building to be placed somewhere on their existing school site. The project is split into 6 parts: Initial designs, Final design, Material costing, Labour costing, Fittings Costing and Summary/Presentation. There is a PowerPoint that explains the entire project and a word document with as many of the likely costs that I have managed to think of. I ran this last year and it was very successful, I have made a few tweaks since. You will need to change the google maps image of my school to your own school, but that is all. My students completed the project partly on A3 and partly on Laptops. Mathmetical content involved is Area, Perimeter, Scale Drawing, Unit Conversion and Finance. Though many pupils can extend into things like Pythagoras and Trigonometry if their final design is fairly advanced/in-depth enabling the project to work across KS3 and KS4.

I have found the 1957 O Level Maths Papers produced by the University of London, and put them into a nice A3 display size with an 'old paper texture' feel. These could be used in class as some interesting extra practice, or as a display on your walls (like mine). There are 10 A3 portrait pages that cover all the different Pure Maths Papers for 1957 including 'Arithmetic & Trigonometry', 'Algebra', 'Geometry' and 'History of Mathematics'.

Our students found this useful for revision. Once a paper is complete and marked they can identify topics that they need to work on and improve. Equally, if using a paper for revision, students can quickly navigate to the topics they need to focus on first.

Maths Internet Scavenger Hunt

(2)
Something a little bit different for an end of term lesson maybe. Students must have internet access for this task. The idea being they use the internet as a resource to try and find answers to all the questions, it is a hunt so teachers should not give anything away, rather point towards a good potential source of information or keywords to 'google'. I usually ask students to compile their answers in Microsoft Word or similar and email them to me after the lesson so I can find a winner. Question Topics: Famous Mathematicians, Famous Numbers, Famous Objects, People & their work, Mathematical Dates, Phrases, Symbols, Inventions and a bonus round. If pupils answer every question the task can easily take up to and over an hour to complete fully.

6 Mixed Maths Homeworks for Foundation GCSE

In this resource are 6 homeworks of varied past exam paper questions. Each have a front cover sheet indicating the question category, description and number of marks allowing for easy tracking and gap analysis for both teacher and student. Each homework comes with markscheme and scanned written solutions. These homeworks were designed to run alongside the 1 Year SoW GCSE Maths Foundation for Edexcel 9-1 already uploaded to TES here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/1-year-sow-gcse-maths-foundation-for-edexcel-9-1-including-all-lessons-and-resources-11893067 But they are perfect stand-alone homework resources as well.
