Any ideas anybody?
What is it you want? Somebody to provide lesson plans for you. If you want help with a particular topic, then you need to at least provide some LOs. I'm teaching this at the moment and B3 covers quite a lot of ground. Not sure why you would have a problem with the shape part of the unit as this always lends itself to a practical activity.
No, I am perfectly happy to put the work in and do my own lesson plans. It's just some ideas to develop that I was hoping for.
It's mostly the problem solving elements. I didn't specify LO's as I was looking for general suggestions.
I am new to this, as a trainee. I feel that sometimes people can forget how confusing planning can be when everything is new! I'm not asking to be spoon fed, but a few ideas would be a great help.
Have a look here for suggestions of websites with interactive activities:
If you're looking for ideas for problem-solving, good ideas are found at the nrich or beam sites. Just google them and they will be the first ones that come up.
Thanks Marlin, that's really helpful
Thank you Irulan. Someone at school lent me a Beam book today, it's got some great ideas. I'll check out the website as well.
I've used this - mathematical challenges for more able pupils. You could always make an easier version or support less able. Download it from here:
Fantastic - thanks Irulan. This and Beam were just the sort of thing I was looking for. I am teaching a mixed year group, so am trying to find problems to extend the higher attainers, as they finish the main tasks quickly. I've got a few ideas now, that should keep them busy!
