Here it is! The latest game! Addition and Subtraction skills practice, players are faced with a two minute period to answer as many questions as possible in order to master the game, here players have to get 20, 30 or 40 questions right to score a different level of mastery.
Players are given a very simple on screen computer to input the answers into, you can use either the mouse or the keyboard for this (I find the keyboard a lot faster).
New resources that I just used with one of my classes. There are three levels of sheets that I printed off and gave students at different times throughout the lesson, what students have to do is select which statements are corrent and which are incorrect, they then have to write in the correct answer to those they think are wrong. A few of my students did glitter bubbles in green and red if they were right or wrong and they looked awesome so this would be a nice touch.
Tried to add in all the misconceptions that arose in the first lesson when using these in following lessons as little consolidation exercises. Hope you like them, you can download all the files below the pictures :-)
There are three levels:
Green - Easy
Amber - Medium
Red - Challenge
I realise a lot of people use the colours the other way round but I don't like my easier exercises to be red. Seems to make the students think it's hard so I've chosen to colour associate it for this reason.
So the last set of match cards went down well when doing box plots so I decided to put some together for pie charts. I used this as a consolidation exercise on our first lesson doing pie charts. Students have to match the pie charts to the sets of data to start, they can then start to analyse the statements to match up some percentages and descripions regarding the pie charts. You could then get any students who finish to design some of their own to add to the set :-)

Unfortunately I can't take any credit for this one! The fantastic class of Mr Horley @mhorley have put these together for me to share with you! So here you go and thank you to Mr Horleys maths class! There were a lot of requests for these so you have saved me! I think there are some more to come in due course!

Made some new resources! Last week I made the fatal mistake of assuming prior knowledge with a class I am covering once a week. We were set to do multiplying fractions and I mistakedly assumed they would have prior knowledge of improper fractions and mixed numbers.. big mistake! Anyway, quickly remedied the situation and decided I would make sure the one lesson we have together counts so I've put together a worksheet and match cards covering mixed numbers and improper fractions.
The match cards will be used first, I have put in the visual alongside the improper fraction and finally the mixed number. Pictures below:
Final task for the lesson I've put together a worksheet using the 'Got it, Smashed it, Mastered it' theme. First section looking at the visual building on from the match card activity. Final sections then ask students to convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers. A few extension questions thrown in there also for good measure!
Feels like all I am doing is data at the moment as I have data with 3 different classes! Decided I needed to make some new resources to mix it up a bit! Here's the first one, some box plots match cards. Students have to match the box plot to the data and then also to the interquartile range calculation. I am going to use it as an introduction with my KS3 class before we start building them.
Hope you find these useful I hope there are no mistakes! I am only human though so please do let me know if there are! :-)

Here is a picture of one of the sheets. I have also done a blank template to be used as an extension which you can get here
