SATs Bundle (Algebra)

SATs Bundle (Algebra)

Topic-focused SATs questions and fully-worked solutions for the ALGEBRA strand. Click 👉 tes.com/…/bundles… for booklet bundles of the other strands.<hr>I have put all my ALGEBRA booklets together in this one convenient download. I hope that this is helpful to you.<hr> The questions in these booklets are in the style of actual SATs questions and are designed to be printed as A4 or A5. KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful. I have maintained the style of the actual SATs questions so that students can become comfortable with the way that SATs questions are presented. Most of the questions are from actual SATs papers, but I have also added questions so that this resource matches the requirements the current curriculum better than the older resources that are still in common use (note that many of the older resources of this type contain questions on topics which are no longer examined). I have spent a lot of time arranging the questions so that there is a general increase in difficulty as students work through them, and so that they fit on the pages better – this means less wasted space and significant paper-saving when printing 😃 <hr>👍If you like this resource, then please rate it and/or leave a comment💬.

KS2 Maths (Sequences)

KS2 Maths (Sequences)

These topic-focused SATs questions at the end of a unit will help to test and extend students’ understanding as well as helping them to prepare for SATs next year. These questions have fully-worked solutions which can be displayed on a whiteboard making feedback with students more efficient. Click 👉 tes.com/…/KS2-Maths-Questions… for similar-style compilations on the other KS2 topics.<hr>This particular compilation is from the ALGEBRA strand and contains questions on Sequences. The main booklet covers linear sequences, but I have also included a second booklet which has a few questions on non-linear sequences. Although non-linear are not specifically mentioned within the KS2 curriculum, I think that it is possible that this type of question could be asked in relation to general multiplication and division.<hr>I have designed this compilation to be printed as an A4 or A5 booklet which is in the style of the actual SATs papers and is convenient for use in class or as homework. It can even be given to individual students if a parent is asking for ‘some more work’! KEY POINTS: I have provided full answers, with comments and working where helpful.

Linking nth term rule to linear graphs

Linking nth term rule to linear graphs

This lesson starts with a recap of the nth term rule and then links this to linear graphs. It is quite an abstract connection and would work better with higher ability groups but can work equally well with lower ability groups if provided with extra scaffolding.

Substituting into nth term to create a sequence

Substituting into nth term to create a sequence

Worksheet that starts with producing a linear sequence from an nth term. Using the minimally different approach students are asked to spot what is similar about certain sequences and how this is shown in the nth term itself. The second page is generating fractional sequences. Third page looks at quadratic sequences being produced. On both the second and third pages students can be asked what is the same and what is different when compared to the linear sequences on page one.

Y6 algebra - solving linear sequences

Y6 algebra - solving linear sequences

Written for year 6 algebra in the new National Curriculum (but also suitable at KS3), a differentiated question sheet, with a set of linear sequences for children to solve. In each case, they need to find the rule for n, then the 10th, 20th, 50th or other specified term. Example: Q: What is the 20th number in this sequence? 5, 8, 11 A: Rule: 3n+2 20th number is (3x20) + 2 = 62 Differentiated with 6 easier questions, 14 core (increasing in difficulty), then 4 extension questions going into negative number sequences for the more able. Answer sheet provided in same format. Whole document is in Word, so can be edited (tweaked slightly to make it easier or harder, depending on your class) or copy / pasted into Smartboard or other formats. Would also be suitable for a homework / reinforcement.

Compare the value game - nth term

Compare the value game - nth term

Card game where participants start with a number of cards with an nth term on each and options to substitute into the nth term to find the value of the characteristic. Players choose the category to compare, the highest value wins the round and the winning player keeps those cards. The winner is found when only one player is left.

Mathematics Revision Mats

Mathematics Revision Mats

Please use these mats as a revision games to play in groups in the classroom. They should be printed on A3 paper and laminated so that it can be re-used. This means that students can write their initials on their square instead of using counters. The way the game is played can be manipulated. However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet): Roll Two Die to Create a Co-ordinate. Place your coloured counter on the square that the roll corresponds to. If answer is correct, receive points as follows: Points: Red squares are worth 1, Yellow squares score 2 points, and Green squares score 5 points Grades: Red squares are 4/5 Grade, Yellow squares and 6/7 Grade and Green Squares and 8/9 Grade answers Please use a great revision resource for group work. Please also leave any feedback for future revision mats and how to improve them.

Cubic and Quadratic Sequence generator. Quadratic solver

This can be used to generate quadratic and cubic sequences and uses difference table to show the step by step solution. It also has a quadratic solver which will give the nth term of a sequence. On the right hand side there are cells that can be copied and pasted to use the sequence.

Fibonacci sequences with simultaneous linear  equations

Fibonacci sequences with simultaneous linear equations

The second of two lessons on Fibonacci sequences with the 9-1 GCSE specification in mind. Please see my other resources for the first lesson, although this also works as a stand-alone lesson. Inspired by a sample exam paper question where pupils had to work out the first two terms of a Fibonacci sequence, given the 3rd and 6th terms. Activities included: Starter: A set of simultaneous linear equation questions, to check pupils can apply the basic method. Main: A nice puzzle to get pupils thinking about Fibonacci sequences. Examples and a set of questions with a progression in difficulty, on the main theme of finding the first terms using simultaneous linear equations. A lovely extension puzzle where pupils investigate a set of Fibonacci sequences with a special property. Plenary: A brief look at some other curious properties of the 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, … Fibonacci sequence, ending with a few iconic images of spirals in nature. Slides could be printed as worksheets, although lesson has been designed to be projected. Answers included throughout. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

Fibonacci sequences

Fibonacci sequences

A complete lesson with the 9-1 GCSE Maths specification in mind. Activities included: Starter: Some recap questions on solving two-step linear equations (needed later in the lesson). Main: An introduction to Fibonacci sequences, followed by a quick activity where pupils extend Fibonacci sequences. A challenging, rich task, inspired by one of TES user scottyknowles18’s excellent sequences rich tasks. Pupils try to come up with Fibonacci sequences that fit different criteria (eg that the 4th term is 10). Great for encouraging creativity and discussion. A related follow up activity where pupils try to find missing numbers in given Fibonacci sequences, initially by trial and error, but then following some explanation, by forming and solving linear equations. Extension - a slightly harder version of the follow up activity. Plenary: A look at an alternative algebraic method for finding missing numbers. Some slides could be printed as worksheets, although it’s not strictly necessary. Answers to most tasks included, but not the open-ended rich task. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
