Coordinates Plotter
Subject: Mathematics, ICT Year: 5 6 Learning Objectives

  • Using co-ordinates to define shapes
  • Using co-ordinates and number operations to define transformations of shapes, e.g. rotation, translation, reflection.
  • Generalising about numbers/mathematical properties.

An Excel spreadsheet which allows the user to mark and join points on a four quadrant co-ordinates grid by entering x and y co-ordinate numbers. More advanced pupils can also program in formulas which will automatically transform shapes. Knowledge of using formulas in Excel is needed to accomplish that.

Problem solving sheets with drop down menus
Cambridgeshire Numeracy Team
Subject: Mathematics
Year: 2, 6
Learning Objectives

  • Solve word problems
  • Explain reasoning

These files contain word problems taken from the key stage one and two national tests. Drop down menus have been used so that the numbers in the word problem can be changed to simplify/extend the problems. They were created using the ‘help sheet’ on the NWN website.

I would use these files for whole class/guided group teaching. They would work best with an iwb so that teachers could use a shade to hide the calculation and discuss it before they revealed the second box and so that children/teachers could annotate over the sheet in the 'solve the problem'/'write the answer in a sentence' boxes.

After whole class work children could perhaps use the files independently on PCs, print out the sheet and solve the problem on the sheet so that they are able to make jottings on the sheetThe KS2 2003 problem could lead to a really interesting investigation about remainders - which combinations are possible given that you can only have a 2 decimal place remainder?
