Algebra vocabulary, KS 2, display, working wall.

Hi all, Here's some algebra vocabulary for you. This resource is mainly aimed at Years 3 - 7 and can be out on your working walls or maths displays. I usually cut them out and laminate them first, that way they'll last a good few years. They're also completely editable so you can pick and choose which ones you want. If you like these resources then please review them for me and press 'follow' - that way you'll get notifications of other resources as and when I upload them. Cheers, Emlo

Standard Form of Linear Functions - X and Y Intercept Scavenger Hunt (Set of 15)

Standard Form of Linear Functions - X and Y Intercept Scavenger Hunt (Set of 15)

This 15 poster scavenger hunt requires students to examine the characteristics of linear function graphs. Have students analyze a question and find the graph that matches the information. Students will: Determine the x and y-intercepts for a linear equation written in standard form. After finding the information, students will find the graph that matches their intercepts. Students will write down the correct letter on their answer sheet. Extension idea - Have students rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form. This is a great review of intercepts from standard form after instruction or before a test.

GCSE 9-1 Exam Question Practice (Simultaneous Equations)

GCSE 9-1 Exam Question Practice (Simultaneous Equations)

This download has 22 exam questions on Simultaneous Equations. They start easy and build up in difficulty. To accompany the questions, there are fully-worked solutions for students to follow, which means that less time is needed for feedback in class. [CLICK HERE] to see a list of the other available topic booklets. They are great for independent study, for a homework, or for working together in class.

Two stage equation solving matching exercise and code breaker

Two stage equation solving matching exercise and code breaker

A more interactive resource (fully differentiated) on solving equations such as 2x - 3 = 17. Students must match the correct equation with the solution in the lower half of the grid. The other is a code breaker where solving the equation gives a coded message. Ideal for homeworks or to consolidate learning of this algebraic staple

Tour de France Formulas Lesson

Tour de France Formulas Lesson

I made this for my year 6 Maths class although it could be used higher up. It gets the class using formula repetitively before applying their learning to word problems. All the work is differentiated and the sheets just need to be printed from the slides. ALL WORKSHEETS COME WITH ANSWERS!

Problem Solving with Extra or Missing Information

Problem Solving with Extra or Missing Information

Included in this product are an open ended work mat for 10 different scenarios and 2 sets of 12 task cards. In the open ended problems, students identify the extra information, the missing information, and show how to solve the problem. If possible, students also develop an equation that can be used to solve the problem. The task card sets are in a multiple choice format printed with or without QR codes. The entire product is printed in black and white. I recommend printing the product on colored card stock then laminating for durability.

Solving Quadratic Identities

Solving Quadratic Identities

Students learn how to solve quadratic identities by completing the square and equating terms. As learning progresses students are challenged to solve identities where the coefficient of b is odd and in the form a(x+b)^2 + c. At the start of the lesson students arrange six expressions written in the form (x + b)2 + c in order of their smallest possible value. In the plenary students are challenged to match a range of identities with their equal terms. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to solve a quadratic identity in the form (x + b)^2 + c by completing a square. Most students should be able to solve a quadratic identity in the form (x + b)^2 + c by completing a square and equating terms. Some students should be able to solve a quadratic identity in the form a(x + b^)2 + c. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4.

Maths KS2 and above.  Solving picture puzzles with numbers.

Maths KS2 and above. Solving picture puzzles with numbers.

Algebra on KS2 states: find pairs of numbers that satisfy an equation with two unknowns enumerate possibilities of combinations of two variables. So I've created a presentation using graphical images for learners to exercise mathematical reasoning to solve missing number problems using all four rules. An accompanying worksheet/activity gives learners practice in the skills. Plus a second activity that has no words, just images, which makes it great for learners to talk to each other, and a PowerPoint presentation of the same problems allows the learners to share their thinking with the whole class. Hence can be used at any age above Year 5.
