Completing the Square (Treasure Hunt)

Completing the Square (Treasure Hunt)

This activity contains carefully selected questions that give students practice at Completing the Square. Click -->https://tes.com/.../more… for similar style Treasure Hunts on more than 40 other topics. -- Note that unlike most Treasure Hunts, this one has the added feature that the answers give an encrypted clue. Deciphering this clue reveals where the treasure is hidden! A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so. These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large cards can be pinned around the classroom and used for a whole class activity; the smaller (loop cards) can be used for group work or by individuals – they are particularly helpful for one-to-one tutorials and during interventions. Colour coding: I have used colours to indicate the approximate level of the questions: KS2 – red and orange KS3/GCSE Foundation – orange and green GCSE Higher – green, blue and purple 👍If you like this resource then please rate it and/or leave a comment below, or by clicking here 👉 https://tes.com/.../rate-resources…

Algebraic Fractions, Solving Equations (GCSE 9-1 Summary)

Algebraic Fractions, Solving Equations (GCSE 9-1 Summary)

This worksheet contains the full range of exam-type questions that require students to solve equations that involve algebraic fractions. Questions gradually increase in difficulty with the last row being particularly challenging and involve solving quadratics. Click --> https://tes.com/.../Revision to see the list of GCSE Revision Sheets on more than 30 other topics. -- These sheets are great to use in class or as a homework. They are also excellent for one-to-one tuition and for interventions. Answers are included.

40 slide Powerpoint Advanced Higher Maths Complex Numbers Argand Diagrams Worked Solutions

40 slide Powerpoint Advanced Higher Maths Complex Numbers Argand Diagrams Worked Solutions

40 slide Powerpoint for Advanced Higher Maths Unit 2: Complex Numbers. There is a brief revision of the basics of Complex numbers followed by a series of questions. The 24 questions (many of them multi-part) require the construction of Argand Diagrams, use of the quadratic formula, polynomial long division, and simultaneous equations. There are fully worked solutions (including diagrams) for complex number topics relating to: Equating Real and Imaginary Parts; Finding square, cube, fourth, fifth and sixth roots of complex numbers (including unity) and plotting them on an Argand diagram; Verifying and finding roots of complex number polynomials; Expanding and simplifying complex numbers using the Binomial Theorem and De Moivre’s Theorem; Interpreting geometrically loci in the complex plane; Conversions between polar and rectangular forms; Complex Conjugates; Exponential Form; Trigonometric identities, substitutions and simplification. The questions are grouped in approximate order of difficulty and to match the usual order of progress through this topic. *Animated workings come up line by line on mouse clicks.*

Algebra with Fractions basics - help for KS5 (or KS4)

Algebra with Fractions basics - help for KS5 (or KS4)

This question sheet is aimed at A Level students who are struggling to do simple algebraic manipulation where fractions are involved. For the most part these are not typical 'algebraic fractions' questions (e.g. adding algebraic fractions), but are more basic than that. For example, I have encountered students who are otherwise working at fairly high grades but are unable to differentiate, say, 3x/4 because they cannot see that it is equivalent to 3/4× x (and hence simply x multiplied by a constant). Another issue is that students quite often ‘simplify’ fractions by trying to cancel in invalid ways.

Exploding Simultaneous Equations

Exploding Simultaneous Equations

This is a set of 6 sheets of increasingly difficult simultaneous equations designed to make students think and discuss how to work through their solutions by giving them different parts of the process. They include simultaneous equations that involve a linear and a non-linear equation. This is also designed to stretch at GCSE or could be used at the start of A level.

50 slide Powerpoint: Challenging Higher Maths Logs Exponentials Questions Worked Solutions

50 slide Powerpoint: Challenging Higher Maths Logs Exponentials Questions Worked Solutions

50 slide Powerpoint on the topic of Logs and Exponentials, which is intended to challenge more able Higher Maths students who may be considering continuing their Maths studies by taking the Advanced Higher course. The Powerpoint begins with a brief revision of the main rules, followed by 30 multi-part questions. Many of these problem solving questions are multi-topic (such as relating to composite functions, transformations of functions, inverse functions, circles, quadratic theory, cubics and synthetic division, straight line theory, proofs, surds, indices etc) and some require changes of log base, the use of exponential substitutions, and the factorising of exponential and logarithmic functions. There are several examples of finding constants and plotting graphs for log-linear functions. Fully Worked Solutions (including many graphs) included.
