Finding All Possibilities Progression and Activities

Do you remember the problem solving materials that were produced looking at the progression in finding all possibilies problems?

 

Here is the document I produced to support teachers with developing the skills neededs to solve finding all possibilities problems. If you click on the picture, you will access the full document, however the hyperlinks won’t work.

To download the zipfile, click here (Mediafire) or here (4share):

If you do download the zipfile, be patient it takes a while. You will need to unzip it, open the folder and locate the word document: LT Finding All Possibilities 1. Everything hyperlinks from there.

I have attached a step by step guide for unzipping the folder. click here

Multiplication Activities

I have uploaded several multiplication activities I have collected, written or adapted over the last few years. Click on the pictures to access accompanying resources. I have also attached a link to BEAM, because I found several interesting multiplication resources using the interesting searching tool.

Here is the document I produced to support teachers with progression in multiplication and division strategies. If you click on the picture, you will access the full document, however the hyperlinks won’t work.

Tudor maths weeks 1 and 2

This term I am working on the theme of Tudors with my year 4 class and have produced a number of puzzles and problems linked to this theme. I use the “Challenging more able pupils” problem solving book to help generate ideas, so you might recognise some of these problems from there. Let me know what you think.

Week 1 activities-Kings and Queens

Because kings and queens in Tudor times use roman numerals, we did a couple of activities to familiarise the children with them.

Roman numeral multiplication

Monarchy dates in roman numerals

We then looked at these activities to help children remember the names,  dates and a few facts about Tudor kings and queens (and Henry VIIIs wives) while solving logic problems.

Kings and Queens logic puzzles

King and Queens stamp puzzles

There was a good activity we found on Collaborativelearning.org about Henry VIII six wives.

In week 2 we looked more at Henry VIII and his interests.

We discovered he was a knight, and solved problems and puzzles about knights.

Knights of the garter (nicknames puzzle)

Knight mazes (number sequences)

We then looked at some of the things he did such as:

If you like the jousting activity, there is a wonderful game on mathplayground.com that uses the same strategy called “weigh the wangdoodles

We have planned four more weeks of similar Tudor maths. In addition to the word documents I have attached, I also have smart board files completed for most of the activities.

Other topics I have planned themes for are:

Egyptians

Vikings

African animals

Robots

Keeping healthy

As a consultant, I also produced resources for Lincolnshire schools.

There is a link below to cross curricular planning for different year groups I did a few years ago now.

If there is anything you would like me to upload please post a comment and let me know.

Otherwise, I will upload some Egyptian problems and puzzles.
