## Pictograms

Find the resource here. (As a side note, I’d really like to not use TES to host these resources at some point, but haven’t really found a better option). This is pretty simple stuff. But look at this example problem pair. It’s sideways! I think these are best printed off (2 per page) and stuck… Read More »

## Coordinates Resources

Download these resources here. There’s actually a lot more to coordinates than is perhaps given space for in a lot of schemes of work. I certainly have been guilty of skipping over the topic before, on the basis that the kids can ‘do it’ and have made trouble for myself later on down the line.… Read More »

## Finishing off negative numbers and site updates

Hi all, Last week I was busy. But not as busy as the week before. I finished off the negative numbers unit with Ordering negative/directed numbers and multiplying and dividing negative numbers. I also spent waaaayyy too much time organising the menu at the top of this page. Hover over it. Hopefully it’s more useful… Read More »

So I had some free time last week and I decided to get some resources made/updated and published. Last week I published: This year I’m going to try harder to get closer to more coverage with some of my slides. It’s a bit spotty at the moment. I’m going to be filling in gaps and… Read More »

## Frequency Tables

I’ve been avoiding putting this one up for a while, because I couldn’t think of any decent questions and this lesson is a bit all over the place. But it might be useful for someone. I swing between it not covering enough and it covering too much. It starts with a variation theory thing on… Read More »

## Finding the gradient and y-intercept from a line

Download here : https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-12940897 Time flies. I realise that I’ve only uploaded one resource in the entire of 2023. That’s pretty bad going. I hope to be more productive in 2024. This is a pretty simple resource about finding the gradient and y-intercept from an equation. But I wrote some nice questions. Guess I’m just… Read More »

## Compound Measures : Speed

Download the PowerPoint here That shape/space/measures bit of the menu is looking awfully bare. Not as bare as the data/probability section, but still. Simple PowerPoint here. Little starter Not sure that the reflect/expect/reflect bit of these questions works. I’ve tried to make sure they compare it to the first question each time, but I think… Read More »

## Mean from a list

Download the resource here Some data handling for once! I have deliberately just stuck to mean here. I like to focus on it, rather than doing mean, median and mode all in one lesson. I quite like these questions. Just because there’s loads to talk about when going through them. Things like Lots of things… Read More »

## Function Notation (substitution with numbers and algebra)

Download the resource here. A very simple resource, this. But there’s not much function notation stuff out there. I find pupils’ responses to function notation interesting. Stuff they can do like 2x+3 = 5x – 6 becomes suddenly impossible when presented in the form f(x) = 2x + 3 , g(x) = 5x – 6,… Read More »

## ChristMATHS 2022

Download it here. My annual Christmas maths quiz is here. I’ve made it early this year to give people plenty of time to find it. (Looking back, I’ve made some sort of this quiz for 6 years now!) This isn’t just a quiz, it’s a quiz with lots of links to maths. I know some… Read More »
