Erica's got yet more homework that she's struggling with, this time on modulus inequalities, sketching functions, finding inverses and composite functions. As usual she needs someone to explain what's gone wrong and correct her work. Designed to create discussion between students and between teachers and students.
Erica is struggling with many aspects of the A level mathematics course and needs help from your students. What you have here is 17of her homeworks, each with mistakes in solutions which your students need to find, correct and explain where Erica has gone wrong. These are purely designed to generate discussion and to allow students to demonstrate their understanding, whilst also allowing them to show their own methods of silving problems. These are all based upon the new A level curriculum.
Erica has made some silly mistakes on her quadratics homework, involving factorising, solving , completing the square, functions and the discriminant. Your students' task is to find the errors, correct them and explain what Erica has done incorrectly. This should generate discussion in class.
