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 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!

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.

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!

Do it, twist it, deepen it: area of a triangle - TES Maths Resource of the Week
 
06:06
What is it? At the start of each of La Salle’s Maths Conferences, there is a round of Speed Dating, where teachers get together for two minutes to share an idea they have. At the MathsConf in Kettering I came across this lovely idea which I am delighted to say has been shared on TES. The premise is dead simple: take a topic such as the area of a triangle, and then do it, deepen it, twist it. “Do it” involves developing fluency, “deepen it” is all about reasoning, and “twist it” requires problem solving. This resource, which comes complete with a really well structured PowerPoint, shows exactly how this works on the context of area of a triangle. How can it be used? Since I interviewed Doug Lemov for my Mr Barton Maths Podcast, I have become increasingly aware of giving a memorable name to things. Doug’s book, Teach Like a Champion, is full of names such as show-call, culture of error, and so on. One thing I love about this resource is it puts a name on the journey of mathematical thinking that we all want our students to go on. We want them to develop the basics, then to think deeper, and then be able to apply these skills in different contexts. I have found that by saying to my students “right, let’s twist it”, they are much more aware where in that stage of development they are than if I say something like “okay, so now we need to apply the mathematical skills we have learned to different contexts, interleaving other skills simultaneously”. This is a lovely concept that can be used with any topic.

Times Tables Mastery: TES Maths Resource of the Week
 
06:02
What is it? There is little doubt that the ability to fluently recall times table facts is a huge advantage across many areas of the mathematics students need to learn at school, from fractions to ratio, equations to angle facts. However, once students are able to recall times tables, the next step is to enable them to flexibly use these relationships in a variety of contexts. That is where this wonderful collection of resources comes into play. For exam times table there are three sets of 10 questions. These questions do not simply ask things such as “what is 4 x 8?” Instead they probe students deeper with a variety of word problems, challenges to convince why something works, and links to decimals. If students can do these, then mastery of times tables is in sight. How can it be used? With three sets of questions for each times table there are plenty of questions to keep students occupied. Using a couple of these sheets each week with a key stage 3 class, especially at the start of the year, might be a good idea. However, I have two quick points to make. The first is that these sheets are only really effective if students are fluent in the basics of times tables. If students are having to use up valuable working memory capacity trying to calculate, for example, what 4 x 7 is, then the challenge of applying this to solve a word problem or a related question involving a decimal is likely to be too much. Secondly, once students have been through one cycle of these sheets, there is a fantastic opportunity to interleave. Simply copying a question from each of the times tables and creating a super sheet is a great way to push students on to the next level, calling upon all their times table knowledge at once.

GCSE Maths Intervention Pack: TES Maths Resource of the Week
 
04:45
What is it? I often worry about the effectiveness of so-called Intervention in the build up to GCSE. This usually comprises of taking students out of tutor time, or even other subjects, to work in small groups or one-to-one with a teacher or teaching assistant. This is fine, and there is no doubt that any extra help can only be of benefit, but how do we know how effective the intervention has been? This is where this lovely resource, specially on Representing Data, comes into play. Not only does it provide material to use in the intervention session itself (no more frantically searching through textbooks or past papers fro appropriate questions), but also an objective way to measure how successful the intervention has been. How can it be used? There are three parts to this resource, but I am going to make a case for a fourth! There is a pre-test, which is ideal for deciding which students would benefit for the topic-specific intervention. This could be given as a quick in-class assessment, and even marked by the students themselves. Then there is the Intervention Booklet, rammed full of top-quality questions perfectly aligned to the new Maths GCSE. This could be used in the intervention sessions themselves, or taken by the student to complete at home. Finally, there is the post-test to see how much progress the student has made as a result of the intervention. This is a simple, but effective model. My only addition would be a second post-test to be given to the student around three weeks later. This would then enable you as a teacher to see which concepts have truly stuck, as opposed to simply dangling in the student’s short-term memory immediately following the intervention sessions. Such a test could easily be created by manipulating the numbers in the existing post test.

Maths ROTW 76 - Area and Perimeter
 
06:02
What is it? We have all seen activities like this before, where students have to do something practical like decorate a bedroom, or design a theme park. On the whole they are excellent, the students love them, and if planned and delivered correctly everyone gets a lot out of them. But often I find they like a certain amount of structure, and I have delivered more than one of these lessons in the past where the colour of the wallpaper in the bedroom was the subject of far more discussions than concerning the accuracy of the mathematical calculations employed to work out the cost of that wallpaper. This is certainly not the case with this outstanding activity. Students are faced with the challenge of decorating a few rooms in a house, but there is a tight structure, beautifully prepared worksheets, and even a lovely crib sheet for students to allow for effective differentiation within the task. Moreover, there are suggested predefined roles for each student within the groups to ensure nobody is having a sit off. How can it be used? Tasks like these tend to be used towards the end of term once all exams have been completed. And that is fully understandable. But I would like these to be seen as a regular and key part of a school’s scheme of work throughout the year. This project, in particular, is ideal to use at the end of an area and perimeter unit. Students have an opportunity to consolidate the key concepts they have learnt, whilst at the same time applying these to an interesting, practical and challenging setting. With the crib sheets and plenty of opportunities to extend the challenge, such an activity is suitable for all ages and abilities. Lovely stuff. Thank you for sharing!
