17 beautiful slides of real life formulae to arrange. Students can complete it by themselves or work in groups. Mix of easy and harder equations to rearrange. Took a while to write up, but happy that others can benefit from the quality of it now.

This unit contains full lesson plans and resources to teach the ‘Equations’ unit and is suitable for GCSE Higher Tier students. The lessons are designed for the new GCSE specification.
The pack contains eight detailed lesson plans, each accompanied with student worksheets and other classroom resources that you can use, including suggested support and extension activities for each lesson, as well as a homework activity to accompany the unit and an end-of-unit assessment.
The lessons contained are:
• Solving Linear Equations
• Solving Equations with Brackets
• Setting Up & Solving Equations
• Changing the Subject of a Formula
• Changing the Subject of Harder Formulae
• Proof
• Trial & Improvement
• Iteration

Functional maths type scenario. Students inagine they are working in a butcvhers and need to make labels for roasting joints and meat. This involves reading conversion graphs, creating conversion graphs, developing formula from worded information, rearranging equations for temperature. A bit teacher led, you may like to print notes pages to give to more able students so they can speed ahead. There is a simplified foundation version.

A real-life link lesson introducing the SUVAT equations, meanings of letters, learning to select the correct equation for the question, and rearranging to solve. Uses popular car data to see relevant applications in real-life. Includes a starter on Speed = Distance / Time, diagnostic questions using RAG&White, examples and practice, then Nando's themed differentiated questions (with answers) and a literacy plenary to write to their future selves what mistakes to avoid and to explain in their own words - "metacognition" or something!

This is a complete introductory mastery lesson on rearranging formulae using the Singapore bar modelling method. As this is an introductory lesson there are no powers involved in any of the questions.
The lesson includes a starter activity based on solving equations (from AQA's topic tests).
A clear explanation on how to use the bar model to rearrange equations. (Starts with using numbers first and then builds in unknown variables)
Loads of examples given at each step and practice questions for students to attempt.
A mastery worksheet split into 3 sections (fluency, reasoning and problem solving) so students can master the topic.
Answers for the worksheet.
Plenary question getting students to rearrange a real life formula.
If you would like to change the year in the PowerPoint (I have taught this topic to year 10) all you need to do is to view slide master and change the master slide.
If you are just looking for a rearranging formulae worksheet, I have uploaded my worksheet separately, the link for this is below.

A 48-page creatively designed worksheet pack on Straight Line Graphs which includes:
• An introductory activity to check that students have the skills required to access this topic. This includes the substitution of values into a linear equation and then plotting the x and y value coordinates onto a graph.
• An investigation sheet, on which students will discover how the value of m and c in the equation y=mx+c affects the line graph.
• An activity where students will draw linear graphs from equations, and find equations from graphs.
• A cut and match activity where students can visually connect equations with real life scenarios.
• Challenge questions where students find gradients and y-intercepts when equations are not in the form y=mx+c, and the identificaion of parallel lines from equations only.
• A confidence checklist for students to assess whether they have grasped what they have learned in this pack.
A US version of this product is available in our US store here where notation is in US form (y=mx+b)

A scaffolded worksheet allowing students to access the equation P=I^2R. They start by calculating the power and move onto rearranging the formula to calculate resistance. They end up having to use the square root to calculate current. All these are set in the context of real life.

I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of iteration and iterative processes.
It begins with a quick stop clock starter to review skills they should already know and will need to use throughout the lesson.
The it leads to a discussion about what iteration is using real life concepts such as painting a door. This leads into a slide and discussion on the maths definition of what iterative processes are.
Non calculator section
Students shouldn't use a calculator/ ans button for these first questions so they can grasp the concept of iteration by physically doing substituting the previous answer in.
1) There are two basic iteration examples, fully animated, for students to follow through with yourself. 2) This the leads to 3 questions for the students to try for them selves.
Calculator section
Finding x1, x2 and x3
1) Explanation of where to find the ans button on your calculator and how it works. It's useful to get the students to do it on their calculators along with the PowerPoint.
2) 2 examples of iterative process questions that require a calculate.
3) 5 Multiple Choice Questions.
Estimating a solution
1) 2 fully animated examples on estimating a solution to a required number of decimal places.
2) 2 questions for the students to try themselves.
Rearranging to make an iterative formula
1) 3 different example rearrangements of the same formula
2) Odd one out. Students need to spot which iterative formula isn't a rearrangement of the equation.
The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use, however these questions are quite wordy and it may be worth while to print the slide off as a worksheet.
Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with exam style questions including answers.
I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

GCSE higher, inverse proportion activity/worksheet.
Mathematics, Physics cross-curricular task based on applying the inverse square law to Newton’s laws of gravity.
In this real life application of inverse proportion, pupils will investigate how gravity fields on various planets are inversely proportional to their radius and, subsequently, how they are related to their mass. This is followed by some particularly testing questions to really check pupil’s mathematical, physical and logical reasoning.
Answers and internet links included.

Look at PPT for ideas (not for students).
Show video as large as poss - stick on a loop so it continually replays.
Guide students towards answering 'How much slower is it than real life?' and 'How wrong might I be?'
Use report template to help students get started.
See 'model answer&' for ideas on maths to include.
After they&';ve done reports, maybe get them to mark mine and give helpful feedback (so they actually READ it!)
It worked well with my top set Yr10, but I also got some good mileage out of it with a Yr8 group - they learned that there isn't always &'AN&'; answer to a question.

Here are 130 revision topics that are perfect for quick revision with any class. They consist of a question and then the answer, designed for use in front of a class on mini white boards. It is assumed that that these topics will already have been taught but these allow you to quickly recap these topics, perhaps on the run up to GCSE’s. These can be used with any year group and at any time. Many times I have been teaching a new topic when the students need to recall previous knowledge. Rather than wasting half a lesson recapping, these power points allow you to quickly recap and move on to new learning.
Examples include…
Recap area of 2d shapes before volume of a prism
Reciprocal of a number before dividing fractions
Gradient of a line before y = mx + c
And so many more
There are 20 free sample ones to download and use today. I have also placed these 20 in one power point so you can see what the 129 would look like in one power point.
