Resources

Today I decided to try look into uploading resources to the TES website. I figured that I get so many off there from such fantastic contributors (my favourite ones can be found here: https://cavmaths.wordpress.com/resources/ ) that it was about time I started to put some of my own up.

My page can be found at http://www.tes.co.uk/mypublicprofile.aspx?uc=1383503&tab=resources&profileTab=resources 

So far I haven’t put much up there, but my first upload is a collection of my favourite starter puzzles (http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Starter-Puzzles-6334156

In this collection is my 4 pics one word starter, which created a whole raft of other similar resources by other superb teachers. I have blogged in more detail about that here: https://cavmaths.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/4-pics-1-word/

Also included are the “wedding maths” starter (https://cavmaths.wordpress.com/2012/12/23/wedding-maths/) and an old favourite (https://cavmaths.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/an-old-favourite/) .

I have included two show-me activities based around reflection, rotation and enlargement which i find fun and engaging. They included pictures of celebrities they will know, and some they may not know. I have found this can be a good way to get some wider discussion into the lesson, perhaps around the prime minister. I do find it slightly worrying that more pupils recognise the President of the USA than our PM!

The final one I have included is a whiteboard activity called “Whats wrong with this chart”, which was inspired by a series of tweets from @nyoungmath (a maths teacher from Canada) which included the pictures I have used and the answers from one of her classes about what was wrong with them. I have used this today as a revision activity with Yr 11 and they loved working out the mistakes!
