AS Level 2017 Mathematics Lesson 23 and 24 Curve Sketching

AS Level 2017 Mathematics Lesson 23 and 24 Curve Sketching

Two lessons which slowly take students through the basics of curve sketching. The powerpoints show students how to get a hold of the shape of each curve (quadratic, cubic, quartic, reciprocal), the role the sign of the dominant terms plays and the effect of repeated roots (tangency). The powerpoints contain a starter of basic material in the A level course so far and the worksheets are fully differentiated. One of these can easily be used with KS4, the other should only be used for high achievers

Australian Banknotes: What's On My Money?

Australian Banknotes: What's On My Money?

After attending an Aboriginal Museum and briefly told about David Unaipon's (who appears on the $50.00 note) history, I thought it would be a fun activity to find out who else is on the Australian Bank Notes.I had real bank notes that I brought to class. I had a couple of each note (100, 50, 20, 10, 5). It was great to see the students identifying the security features of each note, and trying to find the microprinting with magnifying glasses would work a treat! This lesson would work if you were currently learning about money in class too...Enjoy :)
