## 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 »

## 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 »

Download the lesson here No solving here. Just concentrating on the core skill of factorising. I started with an example and then this *MISCONCEPTION TIME* It doesn’t matter which way around the brackets go but on this exercise it kinda makes it look like it does *MISCONCEPTION TIME* Did this this cause an issue with… Read More »

## Addition and Subtraction of Decimals

Download the lesson here Quite a simple lesson here, but I’ve tried to fill it with some more thinky questions. My teaching has become far too scripted into example problem pair – some questions – a plenary. I’m not building in enough opportunities for problem solving and struggle time. Part of that is a scheme… Read More »

## Solving Linear Equations with Fractions

Download the PowerPoint here This is one of those that’s not that interesting, but where I tried to be reasonable comprehensive. There’s actually quite a few linear equations type questions that come up at GCSE, before you even get into the possibility of the unknown being on both sides. You could easily spend 2 lessons… Read More »

## Rounding to 10, 100 and 1000

Download the resource here I can’t believe I haven’t made these slides before. I have a group with lower prior attainment this year, so I wanted to really try and be explicit when teaching this. In my example I went for both a number and a place value grid. There’s quite a bit of mini… Read More »
