You have just learnt a new method in Maths. Write the ‘Recipe’ for it giving step-by-step instructions for somebody else to follow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzXY6_Y1Vq0 Choose a person to sit in the Mastermind chair. The rest of the group writes questions to ask them on a set subject. The person is then asked questions in turn by the rest of the group. A scorer counts the amount of correct answers this person gets in 3 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZZc4zA7Lsg You have a post-it on your desk. Look around the room and you will see two Statements. Your teacher will tell you to write an example on the post-it note to stick next to one of the statements. You will be then asked to check the post-it notes by the other statement: You are being given two pupils’ work on topics you are currently learning about. One is done correctly and one has one or more errors. You need to decide which one is correct: vote TICK and which one is incorrect: vote TRASH. Use the tick and cross pages in your homework diary to vote TICK or TRASH!! Work in groups of 3. Take it in turns to be the speaker, the guesser and the shaker! The speaker has to get the guesser to say the word on the left WITHOUT saying any of the words on the right! The shaker has a shaker which is shaken if the taboo words are used! The objective is to get the guesser to say as many words as possible in the time limit. You will change places after a few minutes. KEY WORD Percentage NOT ALLOWED Hundred Fraction Number Decimal You have a passage in front of you with some missing words. These missing words are key words in the topic that you are learning at the moment. You have 2 minutes to fill in those blanks! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWoW9QYlpgw You have an A4 piece of cardboard. Write clearly with felt tips a question on the topic your teacher tells you. On the back write the answer clearly. You will take it in turns to present your question to the rest of the class. Write down a question about the work you have just done in the lesson. After one minute turn around and ask the question to the person behind you. If you have time your teacher will choose some of the questions to discuss with the whole class. In random groups of 4 you are given the task of preparing an interesting and reflective plenary for a topic . In your group you need to discuss the topic and produce 4 powerpoint slides including the following: These need to be emailed to me and they will be put on the VLE to be used for future revision. • • • • • A thorough recap on topic. Include the main points and formulae. History of the topic. Links to real life situations. Links to other topics. You have a post-it on your desk. This is your exit ticket to leave the classroom. You have to write the correct solution or formulae on the ticket in order to obtain exit! The teacher will be the ticket inspector! You are going to be shown a powerpoint show of real life situations. Explain the maths that is being used in each slide. You have a bingo template on your desk. Choose 5 numbers from 1 to 10 and randomly put them on your bingo card. These are answers to the questions your teacher will read out. Work out the answers and if it appears on your card cross it off. If you are the first to cross off all your numbers you are the winner!! 2 5 7 1 8 A student is selected to be in the Hot Seat. All the other students make up a question to ask them. Students take it in turns to ask their questions to the student in the HOT SEAT! Form the graph y = x2 with your arms. Your teacher is now going to ask you to form different graphs with your arms! Look around the room you will see a TRUE sign and a FALSE sign. Your teacher will read out some statements. Decide whether they are true or false and then go and stand by corresponding sign. If you are unsure (Amber) stand inbetween. Your teacher will then ask you questions about your choices. Use your mini-whiteboard to vote for what you believe to be the correct answer for each question. How much money will you be left with? In your team, work out whether you have to go across or up on the board. Your aim is to join one of your sides to the other. The answer to each question begins with the given letter. You have a post-it note. You are now going to consider the concept you have learned today and how it links to other topics. Write down on your post-it note a link to another topic. Take it in turns to stick your post-it notes on a link on the chain. Now read all the links and discuss as a class. Consider the class tool-kit. What tools have we needed to solve the problems met in class today? e.g percentages, squaring, calculation of volumes. Individuals will be asked to come and get the laminated tools out of the toolbox. Make a quick time-line of the lesson. This should be chronological with 10 minute increments showing what happened in the lesson. Get the students to mark on the timeline where they learnt a number of things or where they felt that they could answer the learning objective. If you have time swap your timeline with a partner and discuss the difference with your learning.
