Top ten tests - Target 5

Top ten tests - Target 5

Full preview available at https://www.missbanks.co.uk/top-ten-tests These papers test skills that appear on foundation tier papers, aimed at students working at/towards grade 5. Each set of these papers test 10 skills at GCSE level. Each set has 4 versions to choose from with increasing levels of difficulty: 4 Green > 4 Yellow > 4 Red > 2 Blue For example, A green paper simultaneous equations question has the same coefficient of y. A blue paper simultaneous equations question is worded with a contextual answer. This allows you to build up students confidence and improve their skills at a pace appropriate for your class. There are worked solutions to accompany every paper. There is also a spreadsheet included for you to record your overall class scores and also question by question scores.

Inverse and composite functions - 2 complete lessons and mastery worksheets

Inverse and composite functions - 2 complete lessons and mastery worksheets

A complete lesson on inverse functions and a complete lesson on composite functions which both include a mastery worksheet. The lessons include a starter activity, a clear explanation of the concepts and loads of examples on how to calculate inverse and composite functions. The mastery worksheets are split into 3 sections (fluency, reasoning and problem solving) so students can master the topic. On the composite functions, it also includes an AQA exam question at the end so students can see how many marks would be awarded in the exam. Answers for both worksheets are included and the lessons include a plenary.

Forming and Solving Equations when given SIDE LENGTHS and AREA of TWO SHAPES in ALGEBRA

Forming and Solving Equations when given SIDE LENGTHS and AREA of TWO SHAPES in ALGEBRA

This resource is perfect for teaching problem solving style algebra questions (e.g. suited to the new style 1-9 GCSE questions). It is split into two sections, both involve forming equations with 'x' on both sides and solving. Section 1: Students are given two side lengths in algebra (e.g. opposite sides of a rectangle) that are equal. Students then need to form and solve an equation to find the value of 'x'. Section 2: Students are given a rectangle and a triangle. Students need to use the algebraic side lengths to find the area (e.g. side lengths of 2x + 4 and 3 would create an area of 6x + 12) and then need to form and solve an equations to find the value of 'x'. Extension: Students to substitute their values to find the area. This is also a ueful check to see whether they have the correct answer. Answers included in the notes section of the slide.

Plotting and Interpreting Speed Vs Time Graphs

Plotting and Interpreting Speed Vs Time Graphs

Students learn how to plot and interpret speed vs. time graphs. By considering the direction of the graph students understand how an acceleration and retardation correspond to a positive or negative gradient. As learning progresses displacement is measured by calculating the area under the line. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to recognise a positive gradient as increasing velocity and a negative gradient as decreasing velocity. Most students should be able to plot a velocity – time graph and calculate the area under the line to measure displacement. Some students should be able to sketch a distance – time graph from a velocity time graph. Check out my blog at mr-mathematics.com for: * Fully planned and differentiated maths lessons for KS3 and GCSE grades 1 - 9. * Schemes of work based on pedagogy and teacher support. Some students should be able to construct circular shapes using the appropriate terminology and investigate basic circle properties.

Plotting and Interpreting Distance Vs Time Graphs

Plotting and Interpreting Distance Vs Time Graphs

Students learn how to plot and interpret distance vs. time graphs by examining the rate at which distance changes with time and how a change in time without distance represents a stopped vehicle.
