Tips & Tricks
Our resources have been designed to be flexible easy-to-use tools for your classroom,
here’s some tips and tricks to get the most out of them!
Remember – Nearly all the content on Go Teach Maths is fully editable and PowerPoint slides are the same size. This means you could tailor a single Demonstration file with your own Lesson Objectives, add a Worksheet or Activity slide with answers, add a few Shootout! or Bingo slides,
and finally have a GCSE question exit-card to display.
Demonstration / Complete Lesson
Edit – Everything is editable so it’s easy to increase/decrease the difficulty or add your own content.
Mix ‘n’ Match – To mix topics, simply copy/paste slides between PowerPoints.
Delete! – Often there are a lot of slides, delete some to streamline and shape the presentation for your students.
You can scroll through PowerPoints with a mouse-wheel instead of by clicking. This also means you can easily scroll backwards to replay animations!
PDF – Faster to download & print.
PPT – Slides to display before and during the work, and then answers.
Card Match – Easily used as answer-matching worksheets instead. Or simply slice off the answers!
Card Complete & Match – Often these have the same answers as the Card Match so can be given to higher-attaining students simultaneously.
Relay-Race – Easily used as a worksheet if you don’t want students trying not to run in your class!
Messenger & Treasure Trail – Could be used as easy-to-display AFL questions.
Question slides (e.g. Bingo, Shootout, Blockbusters) can be cut and pasted into a Demonstration PPT, but make sure for each slide has ‘Transitions’>’Advance Slide’>’On Mouse Click’ selected.
Shootout! – For a quicker game, you could mute your speakers or simply delete the music slides.
Small-size questions can be displayed instead of printed.
