## 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

## 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

## Measuring and constructing bearings

Get the PowerPoint here. Get the worksheet as a Word file or PDF file. Bearings is one of those difficult topics to teach, I think. Even though it’s reasonable easy. I’ve done a lesson here concentrating on just measuring and… Continue Reading

## Updated/New resource : Linear inequality notation

Download the lesson here. I’m not quite sure what I was thinking when I wrote these slides initially. They were a mess! For a start, I bundled writing inequalities, number lines and solving all onto one PowerPoint! That’s waaaaaaay too… Continue Reading

## Polygons

Get the PowerPoint here. This is a really small lesson on Polygons. I taught it as a half lesson. Includes a definition of a polygon variation theory thing. Plus my first ever Quizlet! I liked doing this. I played it… Continue Reading

## Probability words

Get the PowerPoint here. I know, it’s strange that I’ve left this one until last. I did the silly thing of assuming that since I taught a high ability year 7 group, that they’d be ace at this, but they… Continue Reading

## Adding and subtracting algebraic fractions

Download the PowerPoint here. Two lessons (at least). Includes quite simple ones… Has a task that worked really well with my class. Write the missing step. Cognitive load and that. Plus some questions. Goes onto more complicated examples and exercises.… Continue Reading

## Single event probability

Get the PowerPoint here. I am aware I’m kind of uploading a rag-tag bunch of random resources at the moment. I’m making lessons for what I’m teaching and uploading the ones I feel are polished enough to be shared. Started… Continue Reading

## Updated resource: Percentage change

Download the PowerPoint here. I’ve changed this one quite a bit. I would love to hear other people’s take on this. I fear I’m made some kind of pedagogical mistake here in the sequencing of what I’m doing. I quite… Continue Reading
