Colour by indices with algebra with extension

Colour by indices with algebra with extension

As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising the power rules with indices e.g. a^3 x a^2=a^5. It covers multiplying, dividing and brackets with some containing both multiplying and dividing. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires four different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the equations and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. Two solutions do not fit the pattern and students are encouraged to find their own questions that will fit the pattern allowing for stretch and challenge. The solution is the pattern displayed. The white spaces are where the solution does not fit the pattern. All feedback gratefully accepted.

Expanding Brackets and Simplifying Revision

Expanding Brackets and Simplifying Revision

An Excel Workbook containing two spreadsheets to practice the GCSE skills of expanding a single bracket and simplifying an expression. Both sheets have an associated answer sheet going through each question. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!
