Solve Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing Problem Pass Activity

Solve Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing Problem Pass Activity

Twelve problems provide practice or review solving systems of linear equations using the graphing method. Practice includes graphing equations in slope-intercept form, point-slope form, standard form, and problems with “no solution” and “infinitely many solutions”. Students work with a partner while seated at their desks. They should write in their own notebook or on the blank Answer Sheet (included). At the same time the first pair of students is working on Problem 1, the second pair works on Problem 2, the third pair works on Problem 3, etc. At the teacher’s signal, all students pass their problem in a specific direction. The students who started with Problem 2 should now pass it to the students who started with Problem 1, the students who started with Problem 3 pass it to the students who started with Problem 2, etc. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problem to the last pair of students, or the teacher may prefer to deliver these each time. Students now flip over their new page to find the ANSWER to the problem they just finished. Students continue to work problems in order, pass problems and check their answers on the back of the next problem page until they have completed all problems included in the activity. It is important for the teacher to tell the entire class when to pass their first problem and to tell everyone where to look for the first answer on the back of their NEXT problem. After this first pass together, I’ve allowed students to work and pass problems at their own pace. Teachers may prefer to set a timer so all students pass their current problem to the next pair of students simultaneously. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 12 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class. Keep complete sets in order. It is very important to hand out problems in numerical order so the page with the answer on the back follows its problem number. As you hand out problems in order, problem side up, tell each pair of students the direction they should pass their problem when finished. This direction may vary by row if you zig-zag or “snake” up and down the rows of desks. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problems to the last pair of students, or you may prefer to deliver these each time.

Spaghetti Sine Graph

Spaghetti Sine Graph

I have made a PowerPoint to explain the classic spaghetti trig lesson and a publisher file (or pdf) which can be printed on A3 (three sheets) to speed things up a bit. For instructions about how to run the lesson see the NCTM website or aap03102 has shared some videos on here. http://illuminations.nctm.org/lesson.aspx?id=2870 https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/spaghetti-trig-graphs-6197457

Y5 Maths planning and resources - Partitioning, Recombining and Ordering

Y5 Maths planning and resources - Partitioning, Recombining and Ordering

I created this resource for my Y5 children to support and extend their knowledge of partitioning, recombining and ordering. Please note that there are only three days as we spend one day on developing arithmetic skills and in this particular week, I had an INSET day. The resource contains the planning, slides, activities and answers. Each lesson has been differentiated four ways - Bronze, Silver, Gold and Challenge. The lessons are structured in a same-day intervention format, in which the children complete a diagnostic task before completing their main activity (set based upon performance in the diagnostic task).
