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 »

Substitution with positive integers

Download the resource here Sometimes a resource benefits from you deleting stuff, not adding stuff. I’ve got a much better understanding of what I want these resources to be, and how they’re helpful these days. Case in point. This used to be a massive PowerPoint stuff with activities, just for the sake of doing activities.… Read More »

Rounding to 10, 100 and 1000

Factorising Non-monic Quadratics

Download the PowerPoint here Trying to get back into the swing of things. I use grid method to do this. I’m a big proponent of grid. Reading through Jo Morgan’s amazing Compendium of Mathematical methods, there’s loads of approaches. But I like to use grid for everything. I’ve also updated my expanding double brackets and… Read More »

Reverse Percentages

Download the resource here Again, simple. There’s example problem pairs covering discounts/price increases and three exercises of questions. Not much more to say. Again, if you want to get in contact about collating these somewhere where people will actually see them, hit me up on Twitter. I’m @ticktockmaths.
