Illuminations: Dynamic Paper

Dynamic Paper

Need a pentagonal pyramid that’s six inches tall? Or a number line that goes from ‑18 to 32 by 5s? Or a set of pattern blocks where all shapes have one-inch sides? You can create all those things and more with the Dynamic Paper tool. Place the images you want, then export it as a PDF activity sheet for your students or as a JPEG image for use in other applications or on the web.

Another superb set of resources form TEACHNET.  This time, it’s everything you need for Algebra!

The website contains a range of PowerPoint presentations, worksheets and activities covering the algebra requirements of the GCSE maths syllabus. There are also a few activities aimed at encouraging students to explore topics further, and therefore deepen their understanding.

The resources come with lesson plans indicating how they have been used in the classroom by myself. The individual PowerPoints and activities can however be used by themselves, depending on your own teaching preference.
