When I first discovered this last year, I thought it might go down quite well with the younger students. How wrong I was -- the game was a revolution!

Maths ROTW 102 - Ultimate Excel Markbook
 
04:28
What is it? Something a bit different for Resource of the Week 102… a mark book. But this is no, this is no ordinary mark book. Oh no, this is The Ultimate Excel Mark Book, and it certainly lives up to its name. At our school we regularly record our homework scores centrally on a spreadsheet in our secure shared area of the school network. I will be honest with you – it ends up being just a load of numbers that do not really mean anything. With this mark book, you get a clear insights and crucially a picture of progress. There is the facility to instantly print off individual pupil record sheets to get a view of their progress over time and areas of weakness. And it takes no longer to record your results than any equivalent mark book. How can it be used? This mark book can be used in a variety of ways. If used by an individual teacher it will be invaluable for tracking progress, getting an instant overview of class performance, and as a handy aid for things like parents evening and writing reports. You can easily sort data, add students, and print out reports. But if all teachers in a department choose to use it, well then you have real power as results can be compared and contrasted, and key insights gained. Once again, this is a fantastic use of Excel, and a truly wonderful, free resource. Thanks for sharing!

Fractions Mastery Lesson: TES Maths Resource of the Week
 
06:28
What is it? The term “Mastery” gets banded around a lot these days, and I think we need to be clear that there is no such thing as a “mastery lesson”. There are lessons that are used with a complete mastery approach, but the idea that you can dip into mastery for one off lessons is - in my opinion, anyway - a bit of a misnomer. However, this is undoubtedly an excellent lesson on the four operations of fractions, that with adaptation could be used by anyone. There is a starter that covers concepts that the students may have encountered earlier in the year, including factorising and rearranging equations. And then we move onto my favourite part - the selection of questions. Take the slide on additional and subtraction of fractions. Sure, we have standard questions involving proper fractions, but then we have improper fractions, three fractions, algebraic numerators and algebraic denominators. This is one of the key components of mastery - when introducing a new skill (adding and subtracting fractions) take the opportunity to revisit previous topics (conversion, simplifying expressions, expanding brackets, etc). All of this is rounded off with a classic problem from NRICH and an exit ticket that can be used to review progress. How can it be used? The reason I put that warning at the start was that if students are not used to this kind of approach, trouble may be brewing! If students have not encountered, or are not comfortable with, the additional concepts that are woven into this study of fractions, then they will not be able to answer the questions and as a teacher you will have a difficult decision to make - do you teach them the topic there and then and risk derailing the main purpose of the lesson, or do you just move on and leave your students confused? It is a tricky one. That is why lessons such as these need to be used carefully. May advice - even if you are following a mastery curriculum - is that you go through the questions and edit them as necessary to ensure they are suitable for your class. That way you will end up with all the benefits of this wonderful resource - the lovely structure, the range of questions complete with answers - but with none of the potential pitfalls. Alternatively, this lesson may be used as a revision resource for a Year 10/11 class who have finished the curriculum and are preparing for an exam. The fact that several concepts are all rolled into one makes it particularly suitable for this.

Maths ROTW 15 - Geometrical Square Rooting
 
04:15
I stumbled upon this wonderful activity when I was looking through the resources uploaded by one of my favourite contributors to TES, and as soon as I saw it I was blown away. It contained a piece of mathematics that I was not familiar with -- the ability to estimate square roots using a ruler and a pair of compasses. I was looking for an enrichment activity to give to my lovely Year 11 class, and this fit the bill perfectly. As the accompanying PowerPoint explains, the method of geometrical square rooting comes from Rene Descartes. The technique is very simple to learn and provides excellent practise of students' ability to measure and construct arcs using compasses. This makes it suitable for all ages and abilities. What I particularly love about this activity, however, is that it begs the question why -- why on earth would this technique give you the square root of any number? And you will be pleased to know that there is a beautiful algebraic explanation that provided perfect A/A* practise for my Year 11s, who were completely enthralled at this point.

The TES Maths Resource of the Week (ROTW) is back -- and what a cracker we have lined up to kick start the new series!

But is there an alternative way to using them aside from getting the students armed with scissors and glue to assemble a jigsaw? There certainly is! And as this lovely "Find 5" resource from dwatson802 shows, it can challenge seriously students' misconceptions.

SUVAT Equations - TES Maths ROTW 9 (2016/17)
 
04:50
What is it? I remember when the specifications for the new Maths GCSE were first announced, a lot of attention was placed upon the introduction of SUVAT equations. Teachers around the country – me included! – went into panic mode, thinking we had to brush up on our Mechanics 1 A Level knowledge. Fortunately, it seems that the topic will only be used test skills of substitution, and the formulae themselves will always be given in the question. Still, it does not hurt to help our students become more familiar with these equations and their usage, and that is where this lovely resources comes into play. It is a full lesson, complete with worked examples, quick fire questions, and a delightful differentiated set of questions to finish. Oh, and thankfully (for a Statistician like me!) all the answers are provided. How can it be used? This less pretty much runs itself. As I always say to any teacher using resources from TES, they need to be adapted and modified to suit your teaching style and the needs of your students, but you have all you need here for the basis of a really good lesson on substitution. Maybe get the mini whiteboards out for the quick fire assessments throughout the lesson, and possibly a bit of small group work for the differentiated challenge at the end, and you’ll have a whole bunch of Mechanics converts in no time at all!

Pythagoras and Trigonometry Generator - TES Maths ROTW 11 (2016/17)
 
03:17
What is it? Okay, so we all know I tend to get more than a little carried away when someone produces something fancy on Excel, but I think you will forgive me for getting excited about this resource. Quite simply, it is amazing! You can generate as many questions as you like on 2D Pythagoras and Trigonometry, complete with answers at the click of a button. But if that wasn’t impressive enough, my favourite thing about this resource is that you can mix the questions up. So, it is not just a case of having all Pythagoras question, then all Sine questions, etc. You can generate a random selection so the students need to first select the appropriate tool to solve the problem which is half the battle. Amazing! How can it be used? First things first, make sure you click the button the “enable macros” or nothing will work. Once that is done, then you have a resource that could be used at any point during a lesson. Either at the start to establish baseline knowledge before moving onto something like 3D trigonometry, or half way through a lesson to check the progress students are making. My favourite is to use this randomly for revision. Right at the end of a lesson on cumulative frequency diagrams works particularly well, just to throw the students and see what they have really learned.

Maths ROTW 117 - Premium Test Maker
 
06:21
Every fourth Resource of the Week this year will highlight a top-quality Premium resource for sale on TES that has been created by a teacher. What is it? As my wife will tell you, getting me to part with £10 is not an easy task. So, it was with more than a little reluctance that I snapped up this resource. But, I can confirm that I am a very satisfied customer. This Test Maker is nothing short of excellent. I have written many times about how much in awe I am of some of the things that Excel can do, but this has to be one of the best ever. Not only can you use Excel’s random number function to generate an infinite number of questions, but you can also very easily customise the test, so you get the exact questions you want, in the exact order you want them. And then – just to add the icing to the topic of the cake – the answers are provided too. How can it be used? So far, I have used this resource in two different ways. I have used it to generate a weekly homework for my Year 7 class – and I was very happy with the formatting and the way the document looked upon printing. But more than this I have sued the resource in class, quickly building questions based on what we have done in the lesson, and then projecting it onto the interactive whiteboard. Students can work on the questions, and then a simple click makes the answers appear so they can mark their work themselves. This have proven particularly useful for my Year 11 class during revision time, when I need to keep their brains active across a whole range of topics. Thanks for sharing! Craig Barton A word from the author I am currently Head of Mathematics in an international school in Spain and this is something we use in our department for Years 7, 8 and 9 (and sometimes for GCSE core level revision). Originally I created the Question Bank with 'static' questions but 3 or 4 years ago I thought I would test my Excel skills over the summer and see if I could make all of the questions contain a random element which would allow them to be recalculated ensuring our assessments will not always have the same answers. With some questions this was quick and easy with others more complicated. The macros and functions were added in afterwards with the aim of making the resource more user friendly. All of my resources tend to get modified from time to time and I am always looking for feedback to try and make them better.
