Defining Sequences as Functions - Playlist and Teaching Notes

Defining Sequences as Functions - Playlist and Teaching Notes

Our playlists are “no prep” Common Core aligned lessons designed for small group work, homework, remediation, or extension around a single standard. This content-rich multimedia lesson integrates original instruction with web-based resources to guide students through the rigors of the aligned standard. This product includes: • 5 links to instructional videos or texts • 1 link to practice quizzes or activities • Definitions of key terms, such as geometric sequence and function notation • Examples of how to apply function notation to explain how to obtain the terms in an arithmetic or geometric sequence • Exercises that allow students to practice applying recursive function definition to find terms in a sequence • An accompanying Teaching Notes file The Teaching Notes file includes: • A review of key terminology • Links to video tutorials for students struggling with certain parts of the standard, such as mishandling the first term

Squares to Stairs

Squares to Stairs

Number of diagonals in a polygon, number of squares in special figures, triangular numbers are just some of the examples how we can model with quadratic functions. Using difference tables to establish the pattern and confirm the relationship in Geogebra. Enter the numbers in a spreadsheet, draw a graph, fit a polynomial regression model, use the model for predictions. An assessment task on direct and inverse variation to follow the lesson. The zipped folder includes Geogebra files. Teacher handout has full instructions how to use Geogebra. A lesson can be differentiated: stronger students attempting difference tables and taking an algebraic approach; weaker students using technology to arrive at the same answer.

Using Pythagoras for Distance to Horizon

Using Pythagoras for Distance to Horizon

A problem solving project where pupils use Pythagoras to find how far away the horizon is, depending on your height about sea level. This is an open-ended project, where rather than being given all the information up front the pupils have to work in groups to explore the problem, then reflect on what techniques were effective. It practices several useful skills such as Pythagoras, circle geometry, expanding brackets and rearranging formulas. There is the scope for very good pupils to extend the project in interesting directions.

Solving Quadratic Identities

Solving Quadratic Identities

Students learn how to solve quadratic identities by completing the square and equating terms. As learning progresses students are challenged to solve identities where the coefficient of b is odd and in the form a(x+b)^2 + c. At the start of the lesson students arrange six expressions written in the form (x + b)2 + c in order of their smallest possible value. In the plenary students are challenged to match a range of identities with their equal terms. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to solve a quadratic identity in the form (x + b)^2 + c by completing a square. Most students should be able to solve a quadratic identity in the form (x + b)^2 + c by completing a square and equating terms. Some students should be able to solve a quadratic identity in the form a(x + b^)2 + c. Mr Mathematics’ annual members have instant access to all lessons across Key Stage 3 and 4.

Algebra: Quadratic Graphs 2 - Gradients & Other Problems (+ resources)

Algebra: Quadratic Graphs 2 - Gradients & Other Problems (+ resources)

This is second of two whole lessons on teaching the various aspects of quadratic graphs containing the various aspects introduced with the new 9-1 GCSE syllabus. The first lesson being the introduction is important to go through before this lesson. They are available together as a bundle. This is a substantial PowerPoint, with starters, links to video's I use, Questions, Learning objectives, key words, loads of examples etc... NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources, and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.
