Expanding Double Brackets Full lesson & Answers, Quizzes, Differentiated Worksheet & Exam Questions

Expanding Double Brackets Full lesson & Answers, Quizzes, Differentiated Worksheet & Exam Questions

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of expanding double brackets. It begins with a stopwatch starter where students need to to answer four simplifying and expanding algebraic expression questions. This then leads to discussion over methods you could use to answer numerical questions such as (2+3)(1+2). Then there is a product and sum activity. (3 questions where students need to find the product and sum and 3 questions where students have to work backwards from being given the product and sum) I'm very much aware that there are several different common approaches to teaching expanding brackets. I've included examples for each of the following methods. I know the method I teach sometimes varies on the class I am teaching. Feel free to swap the order and delete the examples you don't want, I felt it was important to give options though. Form x^2+bx+c 1) Algebra tiles - Explanation slides of how to multiply with algebra tiles, 3 progressively harder expanding bracket examples with algebra tiles and 5 mini whiteboard questions with both written and algebra tile solutions. (These 5 whiteboard questions can be used even if not teaching with algebra tile approach) 2) Grid Method - 3 progressively harder examples 3)FOIL/Half moon - 3 progressively harder examples 4 questions for students to try in book. Form ax^2+bx+c 1) Algebra tiles - 2 progressively harder expanding bracket examples with algebra tiles and 2 mini whiteboard questions with both written and algebra tile solutions. (These whiteboard questions can be used even if not teaching with algebra tile approach) 2) Grid Method - 2 progressively harder examples 3)FOIL/Half moon - 2 progressively harder examples 4 questions for students to try in book. This then leads to two tick or trash questions, where the students need to select which person has answered the question correctly and discuss what the misconception of the other person was. There is then a n interactive wheel of fortune quizzing activity where students can come to the board. Spin the wheel, click the section it lands on, answer the question and total their points. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1 & 2 and a stretch 1 & 2. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with 2 exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

Catchphrase - Expanding Brackets Quiz Bundle

Catchphrase - Expanding Brackets Quiz Bundle

Answers and catchphrases are provided. This activity includes 3 catchphrase activities for: 1) Expanding Single Brackets 2) Expanding Double Brackets 3) Expanding Triple Brackets I sometimes change the image below to a picture of famous person to add more variation to the game. Students either as individuals or small groups answers questions to reveal part of an image. The more questions the students answer the more of the image is revealed. The winner is the person who manages to say what they see and guess the catch phrase. I’ve included the answer to each catchphrase in the notes box, as well as answers on the second page.

Coordinate grids Spot the Error

Coordinate grids Spot the Error

A set of 12 coordinate grids, some correct and others with common errors- uneven spacing, using different scales on different sides of the same axis, not drawing the axis on a line, etc. I often use this as a starter with older students before starting a unit on graphing to remind them of all the things they can and cannot to do. Answers included.

Polynomials Wordsearch Starter Activity Maths Algebra Equations Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Polynomials Wordsearch Starter Activity Maths Algebra Equations Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Polynomials'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Clumsy Clive On Simultaneous Equations

Clumsy Clive On Simultaneous Equations

Clive is tackling a simultaneous equations homework but as per usual is making errors. There are three sets of linear simultaneous equations to correct and a linear/quadratic to look at. I have tried to cover regular errors for students to spot, correct and discuss.

Clumsy Clive On Function Notation

Clumsy Clive On Function Notation

New on the GCSE syllabus, Clive is struggling with function notation icluding inverse and composite functions. Can your students check, correct and explain what Clive has done wrong in the four questions? This should encourage discussion.

16.2a Plotting the graphs of y = x^2 and y = x^2 + a

16.2a Plotting the graphs of y = x^2 and y = x^2 + a

Are you a teacher who wants all of their lessons planned for them? Are you a head of maths who has to set a lot of cover work? Are you a senior leader who struggles to ensure consistency of teaching quality within you maths department? Do you have a lot of none specialists who will naturally have limitations in their mathematical knowledge? Are you a teacher who craves structure and full course content? If you answered yes to any of these then these resources are the ones for you. The lesson contains fully worked examples, differentiated questions and the application of the topic in a different context whilst also taking every opportunity to incorporate previously taught topics to consolidate the student's knowledge. Each lesson has been developed by a colleague who has successfully planned resources for his department of 10 where he was the only maths specialist! Within the space of three years he led the department to 81% A* - C (from 34%) with 79% (from 32%) expected progress. This has been maintained for the subsequent three years within a school containing 55% PP with students being significantly below the national average for ability on entry. This has been developed in line with the Pearson GCSE Foundation Scheme of Work. It is, however, suitable for use by those who do not use this exam board or who wish to use it with a younger, more able, class. The first half of the PowerPoint contains: * Worked examples (useful for non-specialists) * An AFL example * Classwork options (Grade 3, 4 or 5) for the teacher to choose to complete (answers included) * In built revision through the inter-linking of previously taught topics The second half of the PowerPoint contains: * Worked examples embedding the newly taught topic in a different context * An AFL example * Classwork (answers included) * In built revision through the inter-linking of previously taught topics * An exit pass that will speed up your marking process This is part of a set of PowerPoints that have been developed for this particular unit. Other units will become available over time.

Graphs Matching

Graphs Matching

This is an activity, with accompanying worksheets, that should encourage a discussion between students and teacher about equations of graphs/functions and what each part "does" regarding the position of the line/curve. You could lead on to other discussions about how the function/equation could be presented.

Solving quadratics maze

Solving quadratics maze

A 6x8 grid in which students need to find their way across the grid by finding quadratic equations that can factorise. The solutions to the euqations need to be found before the students can move on. The other equations can be solved using the quadratic formula. Answers and the correct route across the grid are given. Students find this rich task highly challenging but enjoyable. I find they complete far more questions in this way. Please feedback on how thew resource worked and any suggestions for further resources of this type.
