Expanding brackets differentiated dominos

Expanding brackets differentiated dominos

Expanding brackets differentiated dominoes This activity is a fun and novel way for students to practise expanding brackets. They can start on any domino they like, answer the question, find the answer on a different domino then repeat the process. If they have answered all questions correctly they should end up back at the domino they started with. Why dominos is a great activity: • Students can check their own answers • They will complete 20 questions in a way that is completely different from standard worksheets • Students find it fun to search for and find the answers • They can be laminated to be used again This pages contained in this product are: Contents Instructions Expanding a single bracket with positive numbers on the outside only e.g. 2(3b -2) Expanding a single bracket with positive numbers only ANSWERS Expanding a single bracket with positive and negative numbers e.g. -3(3b -2) Expanding a single bracket with positive and negative numbers ANSWERS Expanding a single bracket with letters on the outside e.g. z(2x +5) and 3v(3g-2) Expanding a single bracket with letters on the outside ANSWERS Expanding a single bracket with letters and powers e.g. 2x2(3x +2) Expanding a single bracket with letters and powers ANSWERS Working out sheet 1 Working out sheet 2 Suggestions for use: • Give to pairs for a collaborative activity • Give one each to a group of students and they need to find their answer and make a line • Give to individual students to complete on their desk • Once students have completed a set give them the answers as evidence of their accomplishment/get them to take a picture of the finished loop and stick it in

Plotting straight line graphs (implicit equations)

Plotting straight line graphs (implicit equations)

Students are provided with structure to facilitate plotting straight line graphs of implicit equations. The worksheet is split into two sections, progressing in difficulty, and each has an extension section. For very able students a further extension could be to find the points of intersection without having to plot the lines, although it is generally beneficial for their understanding to have a visual representation available as well. Answers are provided, including the plotted straight lines. The focus of this lesson could be any of the following: – Plotting straight line graphs; – Rearranging equations; – Simultaneous equations; – Intersection of straight lines; – What it means to ‘satisfy’ an equation; – Implicit vs explicit equations. As you can see, many concepts are touched upon here, and you will need to decide which angle you are approaching this activity from to ensure that the lesson is coherent. Also included is a basic starter to give practise rearranging to change the subject of an equation.
