Expanding and Simplifying Algebraic Expressions

This was aimed at KS4 who already have a bit of background knowlegde of algebra - All questions come with answers and GCSE Grades. Self-Assessment Progress checks, Starts with simplifying Moves to expanding single brackets Finally on to double brackets - Grid method used. GCSE Style area question used as final plenary. Worked well with High/Mid ability KS4 group as a recap on algebra techniques.

Algebra: Writing Problems using or in Algebra (expressions, equations and formula) + resources

This is a whole lesson looking at writing problems in algebra or putting words or situations into algebraic form. I have also included some past exam questions on the topic as well as a matching activity of words vs. expressions. This is a tricky topic that students struggle with and both the exam questions (6 pages) and matching activity (approx 60/70 cards) means it may well be two whole lesson to really work on improving this area. I have 3 slides looking at key words, which in my experience is half the battle.
