KS4 Lesson: Standard Form and Significant Figures

Presentation and accompanying lesson notes on standard form and significant figures. Originally designed to support the Edexcel 9-1 GCSE specification (outcome 1.4), this lesson would be suitable for introducing standard form/scientific notation and significant figures in any curriculum. This lesson includes a starter activity, specification links to learning outcomes, multiple examples (with answers included in presentation notes), and a true/false plenary quiz. Text for student notes is contained in dashed boxes for easy identification of key ideas, and key terminology is highlighted throughout. The accompanying notes sheets may be used for students who have difficulty in reading/copying from the board, or for the entire class. Also included is a short summary of rules for identifying significant figures that students can glue directly into the front/back of their books. This lesson makes use of the following classroom resources: interactive whiteboard, traffic light cards. It can be altered to suit resources available to you. If you would like a worksheet to accompany this lesson, I have a differentiated worksheet available. Includes presentation in .pptx format, as well as notes sheets in .docx and PDF format, and the rules summary sheet formatted three-up in PDF format.

Scientific Notation and Standard Form (1) – Math puzzle

Scientific Notation and Standard Form (1) – Math puzzle I’ve included three different sizes of the same puzzle. The smaller size is only three pages and is great if you are going to print of individual copies for students to practice in class or at home. The larger size requires 8 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve – fun for centers and group work. The extra-large size requires 24 pieces of paper. Cut out the puzzle pieces (or even better if your students do it themselves) and students are to solve the puzzle so that it matches the solution provided. If your students are going to cut out the pieces then no prep is needed – the puzzle is not in order. I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colourful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last for years! What is included in this product? • The solution to the puzzle – Pages 3 • The normal size puzzle – Pages 4 – 6 • The large size puzzle – Pages 7 – 14 • The extra-large size puzzle – Pages 15-38 • Questions and Answers in a table format for easy grading or you can cut these out to play a matching game – Pages 39 – 41 My students love doing these types of puzzles. This product can also be used as a perfect revision of the school work to do at home. All answers can be easily checked thanks to the included solution to the puzzle or questions and answers shown in a table. Thank you for checking my resources.

Rewrite Linear Equations Into Standard Form & Slope-Intercept Form Relay ActivityQuick View

Rewrite Linear Equations Into Standard Form & Slope-Intercept Form Relay Activity

Six rounds provide practice or review rewriting linear equations from standard form into slope-intercept form and from point-slope form or slope-intercept form into standard form with integer coefficients. Separate students into groups of four and give each student their own copy of Round 1. Students should discuss the problem as they work on it and agree on the correct answer. Once each student in the group has the correct answer, ONE person from the group takes ONE Round 1 sheet to have it checked by the teacher. If the answer is correct, the student then picks up four copies of Round 2 for the group. If the answer is not correct, the teacher sends the student back so the group can correct Round 1. Groups continue working until each round is completed and checked by the teacher for accuracy. This activity works well early in a lesson when students are actively learning a new skill. The discussion and collaboration in the small groups enhance the students’ learning. The answer key for the teacher is included. Teacher Setup: Print enough copies (one-sided) for each student to have his/her own. Cut pages on the dotted lines to separate rounds into separate stacks (all of Round 1 is in one stack, Round 2 is in a different stack, etc.). After handing out Round 1, keep stacks of Round 2, Round 3, etc. and only allow students to take the next round in order when their group is ready for it. Included in the package: • Six relay rounds • Answer Key for Teacher CCSS: Create equations that describe numbers or relationships. HSA.CED.A.4 Rearrange formulas to highlight a quantity of interest, using the same reasoning as in solving equations. This purchase is for one teacher only.

Rewrite Linear Equations Into Slope-Intercept Form AND Standard Form Placemat ActivitiesQuick View

Rewrite Linear Equations Into Slope-Intercept Form AND Standard Form Placemat Activities

Two placemat activities include practice rewriting linear equations into slope-intercept form AND into standard form. With a partner, students solve all four equations on the placemat. After both students agree on the answers or solutions for all problems on the page, they then add the answers together to find the “Sum”. The teacher easily and quickly checks the “Sum” to evaluate the students’ understanding which allows the students to know if they made a mistake. Teacher Setup Print several copies of the placemat on one color of paper and slide them into plastic page protectors. The students can use dry erase markers on the plastic and easily wipe off their work when finished. Sometimes I print two different placemats with similar topics, each on their own color of paper, and put them back-to-back into the plastic page protectors. This activity works well at the beginning of a lesson when students are actively learning a new skill and can also be used as a review. The instructions are clearly marked on the students’ page and the answer key is included. Included in the package: Two placemats activities, each with four problems and space to write the “Sum” of the solutions. -Find Slope Given Two Points -Write Equations Given Two Points Answer Keys for Teacher CCSS: Use functions to model relationships between quantities. 8.F.B.4 Construct a function to model a linear relationship between two quantities.
