Algebraic Area Reasoning Tasks

Algebraic Area Reasoning Tasks

Several tasks all based on a WJEC GCSE question about forming and solving a quadratic equation for the area of two rectangles. These tasks are designed to improve students’ mathematical reasoning and were created as part of the Mathematical Reasoning at GCSE project run by Cambridge Maths Hub. The tasks vary in difficulty, and include forming expressions for various areas and perimeters, expressing proportional relationships, numerical and algebraic ratio tables and identifying reasonable assumptions. They are not intended to be used all together; just pick and choose one or two suitable ones for your class. Thanks to JustMaths for the collection of exam questions by topic where I found the original question. A similar set of tasks on a different application of quadratic expressions can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/probability-reasoning-tasks-11839057 and there is a more numerical approach to compound area in these tasks: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/compound-area-reasoning-tasks-11838514 All feedback very welcome. I’d be really interested to hear which tasks you chose and how you used them!

Expanding Double Brackets

Expanding Double Brackets

A complete, fully differentiated lesson on expanding double brackets with examples using the grid method and a range of clear progress checks before each RAGed tasks (with answers) on the following learning objectives: Understand how to use the grid method to expand a set of double brackets. Apply the grid method in order to expand a single bracket squared. Discover the difference of two squares rule. This lesson can be used with KS3 or KS4 students as it also involves expanding a set of double brackets. This PowerPoint also shows clear progression through the lesson using the learning objectives.
