Hi, the links in the slideshow take you to a minigolf maths challenge activity… Where can I find the accompanying worksheets to this PPT? Thanks!

Hi Domini, I’m sorry the links don’t seem to be working. Can you please re-download this PowerPoint and try again? Many thanks

Hi there, the worksheet pack link does not lead anywhere and I cannot seem to search for it separately. Are you able to fix as it links in with the fab powerpoint?

Hi Lyn, the links in the PowerPoints are all working. You need to make sure the PowerPoint is in slideshow mode for them to work. Here is the link for the worksheet pack – https://teachstart.co/1UEz04s. Please let me know if you have any further questions – always happy to help.

Resource Updates

  • An additional example of a complex sentence has been added to slide 19. This example begins with a dependent clause (starting with a subordinating conjunction), followed by an independent clause. The complex sentences in the class activity on slide 21 have been slightly modified to align more clearly with the examples on slide 19.
