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.

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.
