Exit Ticket - Chain Rule

Exit Ticket - Chain Rule

I give this to the students (printed in A4 or A5 depending on how much room they need) at the end of the lesson to assess an overview of the lesson. I mark it as soon as I can (ha) and it allows me to spot any misconceptions. The last question is a challenge one to push the most able students.

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.

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.

FP3 Standard Results for Differentiation and Integration [EDEXCEL]

FP3 Standard Results for Differentiation and Integration [EDEXCEL]

This is a simple PDF outlining all the standard results that are given in the formula book and a few results that are not given in the formula book, but may be examined on. This document also includes some extra things like general patterns to look out for in integration and what you need to do when faced with a substitution question (hint: hyperbolic and trigonometric substitutions can be tricky!). This is designed as a 'cheat sheet' as opposed to a full revision guide.

GCSE Differentiation - Notes and Worked Examples

GCSE Differentiation - Notes and Worked Examples

This is a powerpoint covering basic calculus for GCSE. It contains brief notes by way of an explanation, model answers to questions and a question or two for the students to do; all of the questions come with answers that you can display when ready. The slide show comes with a progress grid (regularly referred to in the presentation) so that students can mark their progress from start to finish and pinpoint any areas that may need extra work with a “red/amber/green” system that they fill in; each one is given an approximate grade in both new (2017 onwards) and old system in England. It’s what I use in my lessons before setting tasks from worksheets or text books to practise.

Core 3. Discovering the derivative of e^x using a graphics calculator

Core 3. Discovering the derivative of e^x using a graphics calculator

This was born in one of those teaching moments when you begin a story and it threads through your whole lesson. The original analogy snowballed, i hadn't even thought of creating a family (!) but we went on a journey and I have tried to capture the essence of our discussions and enjoyment as we formed our own rules for differentiation!!

GCSE Mathematics with AQA Further Maths Lessons, Exercises and Solutions

GCSE Mathematics with AQA Further Maths Lessons, Exercises and Solutions

This PDF contains over 60 chapters, each containing explanations, worked examples and exercises. There is a Solutions section after the lesson chapters with worked solutions to each exercise. It is not intended as a standalone book but instead should augment other literature and learning resources you may be using. Remember, you can never do too much maths. We have adopted an informal tone whilst retaining appropriate nomenclature and detail where necessary. Throughout the chapters, where appropriate, we have included exercises aimed at students doing Further Maths. Some of these are complete, new chapters such as Matrices (Chapter. 55). Others are simply additional exercises within existing GCSE topics that we have extended to incorporate the Further Maths syllabus. In either case they are designed to challenge you and allow you to experience the transition from the Higher tier to the next level. This has been exported from an iBook copy (available on iBooks) and unfortunately as such the chapter hyperlinks do not work. We are updating this book on a regular basis so if you purchase it please return to download the free updates.
