Algebra - Numbers that satisfy more than one unknown

Algebra - Numbers that satisfy more than one unknown

This is a powerpoint for a lesson based on finding more than one unknown in algebraic equations. I used the excellent resource at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/algebra-shape-puzzles-11672413?theme=1 for the main activity, differentiated four ways. This lesson received outstanding feedback in a lesson observation. The powerpoint has enough detail in to be used as a lesson plan. Includes lesson starter. This lesson uses bar modelling to show how to work out an unknown in a simple algebraic statement. The plenary extends pupils’ understanding by including unknowns on either side of the equals sign.

Algebraic Fractions 4-in-a-row

Algebraic Fractions 4-in-a-row

Students must add, subtract and simplify algebraic fractions in order to get 4 in a row on the game grid. The students take it in turn to answer a question and are awarded the square if they get the question correct. If they get the question wrong their opponent has the chance to steal. The first player to successfully get 4 in a row is the winner. Solutions are provided.

Vary and Twist : Two Step Equations

Vary and Twist : Two Step Equations

Trying to use variation theory My thinking A question to start Reversing the terms. Does balancing still work? A subtraction. How does this effect our balance. Does reversing the terms still lead us to the same answer Increasing the constant by one. What happens? Also: a decimal answer. We can have a negative answer Divide x, instead of multiplying it. Increasing co-efficient of x by one. What happens to our answer? Doubling co-efficient of x. Not sure about these last two. I think they may be a step back from question 7. This is the problem with presenting these in a linear format. These questions are variations on question 1, not question 7. I might experiment with some kind of spider diagram. Doubling the divisor from 7. Again, maybe the linear way these are written is a bit rubbish. Don’t know how I like the order of these questions, but there’s lots to think about and something to tweak. I have found the transition to asking ‘why have they asked you that question? What are they trying to tell you?’ has been difficult for some students, but I think it’s worth devoting time to it. If students are inspecting questions for things like this, maybe they’re more likely to read the question thoroughly and pick out it’s mathematics. Big hope, I know.

Solving Equations Continuum

Solving Equations Continuum

So the idea behind this activity is that there’s very little difference between each different worksheet but a large difference between polar opposites. Pupils answer the first 5 questions. If they get them all correct first time they move up a step, otherwise they answer the rest of the questions on that level. The levels are: Red - Solving one-step using balances and bar models Orange - Solving one-step represented algebraically (positive and negative integers) Yellow - Solving one-step represented algebraically including fractions, decimals and worded questions Green - Solving two-step using balances and bar models with a few represented algebraically Blue - Solving two-step represented algebraically (positive and negative integers) Purple - Solving two-step represented algebraically including fractions and decimals White - Solving two-step worded questions
