Iteration and Iterative Processes - Full lesson, quizzes, differentiated worksheet, exam questions

Iteration and Iterative Processes - Full lesson, quizzes, differentiated worksheet, exam questions

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of iteration and iterative processes. It begins with a quick stop clock starter to review skills they should already know and will need to use throughout the lesson. The it leads to a discussion about what iteration is using real life concepts such as painting a door. This leads into a slide and discussion on the maths definition of what iterative processes are. Non calculator section Students shouldn't use a calculator/ ans button for these first questions so they can grasp the concept of iteration by physically doing substituting the previous answer in. 1) There are two basic iteration examples, fully animated, for students to follow through with yourself. 2) This the leads to 3 questions for the students to try for them selves. Calculator section Finding x1, x2 and x3 1) Explanation of where to find the ans button on your calculator and how it works. It's useful to get the students to do it on their calculators along with the PowerPoint. 2) 2 examples of iterative process questions that require a calculate. 3) 5 Multiple Choice Questions. Estimating a solution 1) 2 fully animated examples on estimating a solution to a required number of decimal places. 2) 2 questions for the students to try themselves. Rearranging to make an iterative formula 1) 3 different example rearrangements of the same formula 2) Odd one out. Students need to spot which iterative formula isn't a rearrangement of the equation. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use, however these questions are quite wordy and it may be worth while to print the slide off as a worksheet. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have. Miss B

Identities and Equating Coefficients: Full lesson, answers, quizzes, differentiated & exam questions

Identities and Equating Coefficients: Full lesson, answers, quizzes, differentiated & exam questions

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of handling identities and equating coefficients. It starts with 6 quick fire questions on expanding and simplifying single and double brackets and one complete the square question. Then the definitions of an equation and identity are there for discussion. This leads to students having to identify the equations and identities. Following this is two examples of show that this is an identity. One single bracket and one double bracket. Then there is an interactive pairing activity where students need to come to the board and select two cards. If they could be an identity leave them turned over, if not turn them back over and start again. (Snap) Following this is two examples of equating coefficients. One single bracket and one double bracket. Leading into a tick or trash activity where misconceptions can be discussed. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with 2 exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

Functions Spiders

Functions Spiders

Practice on the function notation (new to GCSE!) involving substituting into a function and finding the value of x given what f(x) equals. This also involves composite functions. This should hopefully encourage your class to talk about their answers and understanding of the topic. Now includes an extra "find the inverse" slide!

Forming Algebraic Expressions - Words & Shapes. Examples, Quizzes, Differentiated Q's and Exam Q's

Forming Algebraic Expressions - Words & Shapes. Examples, Quizzes, Differentiated Q's and Exam Q's

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of forming algebraic expressions. It begins with identifying what the different mathematical algebraic terms are. This then leads to discussion over expressions and what they represent through looking at unknown quantities. Students are then asked to pretend they are waiters and to take the orders of the their peers. I then have a discussion about how we could speed up noting information down and look at how the letters used don't have to be the first letter of a word. We then look at scenarios of what expressions could mean in terms of age. Now to examples, pictures are used in examples where appropriate to help embed understanding. 2 simple worded examples lead to mini whiteboard questions 3 worded examples lead to mini whiteboard questions. 2 shape examples lead to mini whiteboard questions. There is a pointless quiz activity with two rounds which can be used to help stop misconceptions before the main differentiated activity. (Teacher Guidance notes are within the slides for this activity, however it's pretty straight forward if you have seen the TV show.) The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have. Miss B

GCSE Higher Worksheet: Advanced volume & surface area problems

GCSE Higher Worksheet: Advanced volume & surface area problems

This worksheet is aimed at the new Higher maths specification from 2017 onwards. It consists of three challenging, longer, exam-style exercises based on real-life applications, using formula for cylinders and spheres. The first sheet lists the formula students will need to use. Diagrams, created with Word drawing objects, are used to illustrate all three exercises. Each exercise has multiple parts. To solve the problems the 1st exercise requires additional skills with ratios; the 2nd both simultaneous and quadratic equations (this is hinted at in the question by saying 'Using an algebraic method..'); and the 3rd requiring creation of an equation that links the relative volumes of a cylinder and a hemisphere. Calculation of the surface area of the machine part (see cover image) in Exercise 3 is more complex and challenging than normal, though it is entirely logical. It is not too difficult as long as a methodical approach is taken. This exercise concludes by using density and volume to calculate the mass of zinc required to galvanise a production run of the machine part. There are also various measurement conversions required such as converting cubic millimeters to cubic centimetres and litres, and grams to kilograms. DOCX and PDF worksheets supplied along with 9 pages of fully-worked model answers in JPEG format.
