Pages 3/4. Directed Numbers.
Ordering negative and positive numbers. Addition and subtraction of directed numbers in all formats.

Page 5. Directed Numbers (Worded Questions).
Putting the skills learnt above into a practical situation.

Page 6. The Submalloon.
The submalloon is part balloon and part submarine. A great invention in the directed numbers world! Again putting the skills learnt above into a practical situation.

Pages 7/8. Addonagons with Negative Numbers.
Addonagons were first met in pack 1. This extends the idea into negative numbers. Plenty of practice in a different environment.

Pages 9/10. Addition Pyramids with Negative Numbers.
Addition Pyramids were also first met in pack 1. This worksheet extends the idea into negative numbers. Again plenty of practice in a different environment.

Pages 11/12. Magic Squares with Negative Numbers.
Yes you've guessed it! Magic squares were also first met in pack 1. This worksheet extends the idea into negative numbers. Again plenty of practice in a different environment.

Pages 13/14. Takes and Adders Board 1/2.
Still looking for ideas on directed numbers? A snakes and ladders game with directed numbers for 2-5 players. Board 1 emphasises adding to negative numbers. Most cards are positive in value with players starting at - 55. Board 2 emphasises subtracting from negative numbers as most cards are negative in value and players starting at +6.

Pages 15/16. Takes and Adders Cards for Boards 1/2.
The cards to be cut out for the above boards. They are best photocopied onto card, if possible, to make them more durable. In the game the cards are to be placed on a pile and the top one to be taken by each player and replaced at the bottom. What is the reason for printing this number of cards ?

Pages 17/18. Wheels (Negative Numbers).
Another way of reinforcing negative numbers. Start at the outer ring and work to the centre. This will make a sum. Fill in the missing parts.

Page 19. Directed Number Tennis.
Game using negative number.

Page 20. Spinners.
Page to be copied on to card to make the spinners for the Directed Number Tennis game. The 3 spinners at the bottom are for pupils to make up their own directed numbers questions by using the spinners in order 1, 2, and then 3. It puts a little fun into the repetitive element of consolidation. If the group can be trusted, a simple way to complete the spinner is add small piece of blu-tac under the centre and push a drawing pin through it. This seems a lot more stable than the traditional matchstick!

Page 21. Boxes.
Game using negative number.

Page 22. Spellings at Level 5.
Sheet for pupils to stick into the back of their books as reminders.

Pages 23/24. Coordinate Shapes 2.
Follow the instructions and produce pictures in four quadrant.

Pages 25/26. Christmas Pop-tastic Coordinates.
A Christmas activity. Using coordinates to find previous Xmas No.1's and those who never came close !

Pages 27/28. Corny Coordinates 2.
Work out the jokes using coordinate skills in four quadrants.

Pages 29/30. Pop-tastic Coordinates 2.
Work out the songs and artists using coordinate skills in four quadrants.

Pages 31/32. Translations.
A translation sheet that uses left/right and up/down to describe the translations. The descriptions of the movements has been written on two lines across, then up/down to familiarise pupils with the vector notation they will meet at level 6.

Pages 33/34. Transformations.
Reflecting, enlarging, stretching and shearing an object already drawn. Good for wall displays.

Page 35. Transformation Tile.
Wall display material.

Page 36. Rectangles and Squares.
Finding areas and perimeters of squares and rectangles. The progression from the earlier sheets is the mixing of units and the algebraic version of the formulae. Pupils need to see the various ways that the perimeter formula can be written, including the use of brackets. The mixing of units is also an introduction to links between mm2, cm2, m2 and Km2. Get pupils to give answers in both units for a few questions to discover the correct links.

Pages 37/38. Parallelograms and Triangles/ Compound Areas.
Finding areas and perimeters of parallelograms and triangles. Pupils need to see the various ways that the triangle formula can be written, since this is popular on SAT's.

Pages 39/40. Missing Lengths.
Squares, Rectangles, Parallelograms & Triangles. Given areas, calculate the lengths of missing sides.

Pages 41/42. Cubes and Cuboids.
Finding volumes and surface areas of cubes and cuboids. The progression from the earlier sheets is the mixing of units and calculating the surface areas from the dimensions. The mixing of units is also an introduction to links between mm3, cm3, m3 and Km3. Get pupils to give answers in both units for a few questions to discover the correct links. Finding a missing length given the volume.
