GCSE Mathematics Foundation revision  ppts

GCSE Mathematics Foundation revision ppts

11 ppt starters. Each contains between 4 and 5 questions around grade 4 of the new 1-9 GCSE. Topics include: expanding brackets, multiplying with decimals, angles in parallel lines, area and circumference of a circle, nth term, Pythagoras' theorem, indices with algebra, mean of grouped data, volume, products of prime factors, reciprocals, solving inequalities, highest common factor (HCF) least common multiple (LCM), substitution, percentage reduction and calculating with indices. All topics come up at least twice to allow for simmering. The cover picture shows the first slide of starter 1. All ppts contain solutions (worked solutions where appropriate). Hope this saves you some valuable time! All feedback greatly received.

Colour by simultaneous equations with extension

Colour by simultaneous equations with extension

As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising solving linear simultaneous equations. It contains all levels of questions; ones that you can simply add/takeaway, ones the require one equation multiplying, ones that require both equations multiplying and ones that require rearranging/ reordering. Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the equations and colour based on their solution. Two solutions do not fit the pattern and students are encouraged to find their own questions that will fit the pattern allowing for stretch and challenge. The solution is the pattern displayed. The white spaces are where the solution does not fit the pattern. All feedback gratefully accepted.

Differentiated simultaneous equations treasure hunts (10 cards for each difficulty)

Differentiated simultaneous equations treasure hunts (10 cards for each difficulty)

A set of differentiated treasure hunts. Answers included. Please see https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/simultaneous-equations-treasure-hunt-easy-11811470 for a FREE version of the Blue treasure hunt. The 3 levels of difficulty are: • Blue (easy) - solve simultaneous equations where the coefficient of x OR y is 1. E.g. 10x + y = 4 8x + y = 25 •Gold (medium) - solve simultaneous equations where the coefficient of x OR y is a factor of the other x or y E.g. 4y + 7x = 117 2y + 2x = 40 •Red (harder) - solve simultaneous equations where x and y are random integers or decimals E.g. 4y - 3x = 34.5 6y + 5x = 56.5

Linear equations - examples, 200+ questions and a homework/test

Linear equations - examples, 200+ questions and a homework/test

These resources are a good way to quickly cover/revise the whole topic of linear equations. The first resource begins with a few notes on what forms linear equations can take and some of the steps or methods that may be required to solve them. There are some parts of the notes that need to be completed with your students, to practise the algebraic steps involved in solving linear equations. There are then several sections, each section focussing on a particular form of linear equation. There are a few examples to complete with your students as practice, then an exercise for students to complete on their own. There is also an exercise of mixed questions at the end. Answers to all the exercises are included. Section A - Solving x+a=b, x-a=b, a-x=b Section B - Solving ax=b Section C - Solving x/a=b and a/x=b Section D - Solving ax+b=c, ax-b=c, a-bx=c Section E - Solving x/a+b=c, x/a-b=c, a-x/b=c, a-b/x=c Section F - Solving (ax+b)/c=d, (ax-b)/c=d, (a-bx)/c=d Section G - Solving a(bx+c)=d, a(bx-c)=d, a(b-cx)=d Section H - Solving ax+b=cx+d, ax+b=c-dx Section I - Solving a(bx+c)=dx+e, a(bx+c)=d-ex Section J - Solving (ax+b)/c=dx+e, (ax-b)/c=dx+e, (a-bx)/c=d-ex Section K - Mixed exercise The second resource gives your students practice of solving linear equations using a graph. Worked solutions to this sheet are included. The final resource is a homework/test with 35 questions that cover the whole of the topic, including solving linear equations using a graph. Worked solutions are included.

Equation of a circle

Equation of a circle

A lesson on discovering the equation of a circle. Students start by plotting coordinates using a table of values followed by whiteboard questions on identifying the radius given an equation and writing the equation given the radius. After this are a few examples of finding the points of intersection of a line and a circle using simultaneous equations.

Name the band - foundation maths revision

Name the band - foundation maths revision

A multiple choice worksheet to revise foundation topics that include: collecting like terms, expanding double brackets, finding the area of a triangle, nth term, metric units, types of number, angles in a triangle, expanding single brackets, shapes and angles in parallel lines. Students solve questions which gives them a letter. Once they have all the lettered solutions, they rearrange them to find the name of a band. Solution is Maroon 5
