## Indices : Power Law

Get the lesson PowerPoint here. Going with Jo Morgan’s suggestion of doing the power law after multiplying rather than after dividing. I wrote some challenging questions. There’s also a hinge question and some timed questions. I also moved on to… Continue Reading

## Multiplying indices

Get the PowerPoint here Again, a lot of stuff is stolen from Jo Morgan’s great work. I mean, I’m never going to make something as beautiful as this. I wrote some questions. I think they’re quite nice. And I put… Continue Reading

## Index Notation

Download the PowerPoint here. So … I can’t claim that I’ve done much original work here. Most of this is stolen from Jo Morgan’s indices in depth presentation. Sorry Jo! Normally I make a lot of stuff from scratch, but… Continue Reading

## Applications of Pythagoras

Download the lesson here. I find telling pupils the Pythagoras rules and then getting them to solve ‘problems’ isn’t enough. Often, the unstructured problem solving can be overwhelming for students. Opinions vary. You might think that I’ve structured this waaay… Continue Reading

## Pythagoras’ Theorem

Download the lesson here Download the worksheets here [1] [2] There’s two lessons here. Which is the hypotenuse? A worksheet with lots of different orientations of triangles. Moving on to finding the missing side, no matter if it’s long or… Continue Reading

## Ratio problems

Download the lesson here. Just a load of interesting (ish) ratio problems to work though. I used bar modelling. I am increasingly into bar modelling for KS3, although I’m still not massively convinced when it comes to negatives. I call… Continue Reading

## Sharing in a ratio

Download the lesson here. Something I’ve wanted to get around to completing for a while. I love ratio and I’ve got into doing a little bit of bar modelling. There’s some LOVELY questions in the White Rose Barvember stuff. This… Continue Reading

## Updated resource : Solving linear inequalities

Download the lesson here. Completely revamped lesson. Includes an example problem pair, lots of mini-whiteboard work, a regular activity (which is still kind of rubbish to be honest. I could do with thinking about these questions more) and a nice… Continue Reading

## Regrouping

Download the word file here. I’ve been reading Peter Mattock’s book Visible Maths. I’m only two chapters in but I’m really enjoying it. Visual representations is something I haven’t really learnt much about. I’ve dabbled in bar modelling, but I’m… Continue Reading

## The Sine Rule

Download the PowerPoint here Download the worksheet here This took me about two weeks to complete! Don’t know why, it’s not that many slides. I drew lots of Geogebra diagrams. There’s a worksheet with 15 questions. I made this for… Continue Reading
