IAL C34 Specimen Paper - without space

IAL C34 Specimen Paper - without space

This is the IAL C34 Specimen Question Paper (free sample). Only questions appear in the document without any written space. I have written the paper using LaTeX ( a high quality typesetting document preparation system) and compiled to get the PDF output. Teachers and tutors can now easily save paper and print the question paper for exam practice and revision purposes of their students. The omission of writing space is a huge advantage in saving ink and paper, because original papers comes with a lot of empty space for the answer. The LaTeX written paper have all the math beautifully formatted and typeset even to the minor details. The question paper comes with a cover page for reference. Teachers can opt out this page if necessary when giving for print. Mark scheme is attached. NB: Here is a link to my store @TpT: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Smart-A-Level-Math

Indices/ Fractional Indices/ Surds

Indices/ Fractional Indices/ Surds

This is a set of 3 lessons looking at all aspects of Indices, from the 3 basic rules, through to differentiation. Calculating using the 3 rules of Indices Lesson 1 The power and root starter can be projected onto the board and printed out so the students can fill in the sheet and spot the problem that they have no solution for. Then the three laws of indices are introduced and each time the students have 7 questions to complete. A power point is also attached with these on. There are then 6 mixed question which also introduces algebra as well as just numbers. 4 more complex questions will then be tackled as a group. Plenary – here they need to work out the powers of numbers by using the 3 laws they have learnt Investigating Fractional Indices Lesson 2 Here the students have a Thunk as a starter. You will introduce the idea of any number to the power of zero and how to prove it using the powers of indices. Students will use a calculator to see if they can work out what the fractional indices ate doing to the number, make sure they write the questions down and keep the solutions as fractions, or they will struggle to spot what’s going on. Then negative powers are introduced and again the students need to decide what’s going on. There is a worksheet embedded, a power point to use as an extension where 5 out of 10 questions are correct, the students have to decide which. There is a plenary flipchart embedded with a set of questions where the students have multiple choice answers that you can use an activote pod, or ABCD cards etc, or get them to do it as a quiz. Converting between Indices and Surds (A/A*) Lesson 3 There are starter questions which look at simplifying surds. Then you look at how to convert from fractional powers to surds and visa versa. You can then look at fractions and how to combine them with indices, The last two slides are to do with differentiations, if you haven’t covered this you can just change the 2nd slide from surd form into indices.

Converting between Indices and Surds including differentiation questions to change (A/A*) Lesson 3

Converting between Indices and Surds including differentiation questions to change (A/A*) Lesson 3

This is the 3rd in the set of 3 lessons (all 3 are available in a bundle) There are starter questions which look at simplifying surds. Then you look at how to convert from fractional powers to surds and visa versa. You can then look at fractions and how to combine them with indices, The last two slides are to do with differentiations, if you haven’t covered this you can just change the 2nd slide from surd form into indices.

Introduction for Differentiation (for New GCSE or AS)

Introduction for Differentiation (for New GCSE or AS)

This is a block of 3 lessons which introduces students to differentiation, it has 4 indices and surds questions, then has questions on y=mx+c so you can talk about gradients, then gets the students to re-arrange linear equations to find the gradients of them. Lesson 1: You then draw graphs and tangents and calculate the gradient of the curve via triangles. The gradient of a tangent as a limit is explained by drawing 3 different chords and calculating what happens as the chord get closer to the point on the curve. Lesson 2: After this you introduce differentiation, with a single term and then a polynomial, there are questions with solutions and a sheet for HW. Lesson 3: You then introduce the idea of a gradient=0 and what it would look like, the stationery points are shown and the second derivative is introduced, and calculated to show the nature of them.

Factor theorem

Factor theorem

A powerpoint explaining the use of the factor theorem. this was designed to be used with the bridging course "Level 2 further maths", but it will be applicable to other courses.
