### Access Maths

This collection contains ten resources each containing an engaging activity for mathematics students. Mathematical topics covered include fractions, algebra, area and perimeter, problem solving, factorising quadratics, times tables and brackets.

This resource features a selection of questions requiring students to add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers.

The questions are split into three sections: must, should and could. Students are directed to complete the first question in each row. Students then decide whether they are confident enough to...

### Algebra Magic Square

Students are presented with a 3 by 3 grid and a series of cards each containing an algebraic statement. Students are required to place the cards on the grid in such a fashion that each row, each column and each diagonal add to give the magic 'number' of 12a + 15b.

Students are then challenged to make up...

### Area and Perimeter

This matching exercise consists of six shapes, six perimeters and six areas . The shapes are an isosceles triangle, a square, a compound shapes made from two rectangles and compound shapes made from a rectangle and a triangle. Dimensions are provided on the diagrams of the shapes, however, in some cases extra...

### Brick Wall Problems

Students are presented with increasingly challenging algebra problems to solve. Each wall consist of three bricks in the lower row, two bricks in the middle row and one brick on the top row. Students complete the wall by adding two algebraic terms to find the term which sits in the brick above. However, in most...

### Challenge Cards

This resource consists of three pages of challenge cards. Each card contains eight challenges.

Challenge cards 1 asks students to calculate the number of triangles in a shape, the least number of colours required to colour a shape, how to measure exactly 4 gallons using a 5 gallon and a 3 gallon jug, a...

### Double Brackets

This activity, for two players, is based upon the game of boxes. Students are presented with a partially completed game, with double brackets to expand correctly in order to gain extra edges. Solutions are at the bottom of the page for a player's opponent to check the validity of the solution. A correct answer...

This activity takes the form of a series of crosses in which numbers are placed into the left and right hand cells in such a way that the top cell contains their product and the bottom cell their sum. The combination of values provided varies requiring students to perform different tasks to solve the problems....

### Percentage Increase

The match card resource consists of six cards which require the students to increase an amount by a percentage, six cards which contain a multiplier and six cards each containing a value. Students are require to match the question with the multiplier and the solution.

The percentage increase worksheet...

### Times Tables

Times tables 7911; students are presented with fifty questions requiring solutions to times tables questions from the 7, 9 and 11 times tables. Students record how long it takes them to complete the task and how many correct answers they score.

Fill in the blanks: presents students with a partially completed...
