Surds Decoder - Simplifying and rationalising part 1 review

Surds Decoder - Simplifying and rationalising part 1 review

Used for low ability A-level and GCSE students it reviews simplifying surds, rationalising denominators with single term denominators and extends into using fractional surds wit basic operations. Students have to complete four sets of questions to decode a fantastically bad double pun-based joke. Questions by learning objective and column: Simplify single surd terms. Add, subtract, multiply and divide with surds. Rationalise a denominator with a single denominator term. Add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and ensure their denominator is rationale, when fractions have single term denominators Includes solutions and a student self-assessment section. I used it as a homework but could be used in class, with strong A-level students it could even make a good starter or plenary. Only one frog.

What Was The Question? - Indices and Surds Special

What Was The Question? - Indices and Surds Special

Four sets of four problems where students have the answer but there are blanks in the questions which require filling in. This is designed to create discussion in class and hopefully provides natural differentiation (stretch the “top end” by finding the general solution where possible compared to finding a single solution). It focuses on the more “challenging” aspects of indices including negative and fractional. I will be using these as starters or plenaries as I believe they will develop deeper understanding of topics, but feel free to use them as you like.

Surds - Rationalising the Denominator (Single Term Denominator)

Surds - Rationalising the Denominator (Single Term Denominator)

Aimed at GCSE and lower ability A-level students with some optional card sorts. Questions and answers included in presentation slides The lesson focuses on making sure learners understand key terminology, objects can be summarised as: Knowing the difference between rational and irrational terms and understanding the concept of equivalence. Find a multiplier or divisor to turn any surd into a rational number and understand that it is not the same value as the original number. Find a fraction equivalent to one that will rationalise the denominator of a fraction with one single surd as its denominator Extensions/stretch questions include ordering terms including surd terms and rationalising the denominator questions with surds that can be simplified

Surds Skills Check 1 - Simplifying

Surds Skills Check 1 - Simplifying

24 questions aimed at lower ability A-level students or GCSE students to use a plenary or skills check on simplifying surds. The questions make students repeat the same 8 quests three times using root 5, root 90 and root A to help students scaffold the need for BIDMAS and being careful with signs and applying these skills to surds and become more confident using algebra with surds to describe what is happening. I have found that depending on my students the difficulty between using root 90 and root A. At the end of the activity I ask my students to evaluate their confidence with BIDMAS, using negative numbers and simplifying surds. No frogs on this one and the tarsia source file is in the zip folder if you want to edit it to better suit your students or print it using a different pattern/style.

Simplifying Surds - Connect 4

Simplifying Surds - Connect 4

A exercise in simplifying Surds in the form of a connect four game. I’m using it on iPads with my current class and asking them to change the boxes to their chosen colours but could be printed, laminated and used with counters. I always find with older students we are sometimes too content driven and wanted something a bit more fun for my S4 class. This could easily be adapted to any topic or the numbers changed to make it easier or harder as appropriate for the students in front of you.
