Exploding Surds

Surds practice from basic simplifying to expanding brackets to rationalising denominators. This encourages workings and the students to work backwards (what's the question given this answer?) so should also encourage discussion in class.

Surds (3 worksheets)

Surds (3 worksheets)

GCSE Maths: Surds Worksheets. Three worksheets which I use to introduce the topic of Surds. They are aimed at KS4 students, but I have successfully used them with a class of year 7s. The questions are laid out in a grid and increase in difficulty as students work across or downwards. Before I give the worksheets to the students I talk to them about surds and get them to have a go at an interactive activity on ‘Equivalent Surds’ which can be found at the following address: http://www.maths4everyone.com/games/matchup/index.html

Clumsy Clive Number and Algebra Bundle

Clumsy Clive Number and Algebra Bundle

These are all available for free individually but if you don't have the time then this is for you. Clive makes common mistakes, mistakes you'll have seen in class. Your students need to find the mistakes, correct them and explain where Clive has gone wrong so that he doesn't do the same thing again. These activities are designed to create discussion in class and can be used to assess understanding.
