Indices – Treasure Hunt.
Could also be used as an indices differentiated loop card resource if it is not suitable for a class to complete as a treasure hunt. I tend to use as a loop card particularly with year 11 for tasks and revision.
Amber – questions testing pupil’s knowledge of indices rules.
Green – questions testing pupil’s knowledge of evaluating negative indices.
1. 8 amber cards/questions. 8 green cards/questions.
2.Cross Curricular link encourages literacy with the pupils, mathematical discussion in pairs on how to solve problems around the classroom (this is a massive focus in our school).
3. 16 solutions provided within task itself. Each card is beside that answer to make it easy for you to check when pupils say they are finished.
4. Set of instructions to ensure the task runs smoothly.
Printing Tip if using as a treasure hunt: This resource has been designed to display around the classroom. You will need one copy (I like to have in colour, but can be black and white) to put up around the room. Print on A4. If you wish to print, select ‘shrink’ or ‘print to fit page’ (or fit to page option on your print settings) in order for it to print correctly on A4. Please do laminate as it will save you printing numerous times and you can reuse.
Printing Tip if using as a loop card: You will need a number of copies, depending on class size, one pack per table. You could decide who was completing amber and who was completing green beforehand so you knew how many sets you needed. (I like to have in colour, but can be black and white). Print on A4 but I would shrink, two A5 pages per A4 to save on printing costs. If you wish to print, select ‘shrink’ or ‘print to fit page’ (or fit to page option on your print settings) in order for it to print correctly on A4.
Idea behind task;
To develop pupil’s mathematical discussion skills. To encourage pupils to get involved, engaged in task. To encourage mathematical discussion within the classroom. Watch pupils get motivated while consolidating learning – quick way to get pupils to engage in task and complete questions in a short space of time. Ensure pupils can recall indices rules. Used to introduce indices, use as a gap task for those getting it wrong in the exam or use as a revision tool coming up to exams.
