A nice powerpoint which colud be used in teaching simultaneous equations to the more able pupils. I like the starter question which gets them thinking about previous work on factorising quadratics, and this resource also has links to solving sim. equations graphically.
To start off my lesson on simultaneous equations with one quadratic and following on from last week's lessons on straight line graphs I am starting off with them solving sim eqns graphically.
To save time I have provided them with the quadratic graph. This is only supposed to get them to realise the aim of doing it algebraically.<p> Once we had the solutions we then proceeded to solve them algebraically as examples (starting with Q4, then Q2 then Q1). We already knew what our solutions would be but this allowed them to understand the point of what we were trying to achieve.
A PowerPoint Activity on sharing in ratios, in particular finding an unknown amount, e.g how much water do you need if water and squash are mixed in the ratio 3:10 and 20ml of squash is used. There is a starter on sharing in ratios and then some examples followed by some questions. Hope you find it useful.
Spelling mistake is in the on purpose to help see which students are paying attention (blush)- not really, sorted it now
A self-contained game to be played in pairs.<br />
Use to revise reading coordinates on a grid. Best played once coordinates have already been introduced, as a consolidating activity.<br />
Differentiated versions of the game within this pack, including use of the first quadrant only, as well as all four quadrants. You will also find instructions on how to play the game within your pack. Suitable for Years 4 and 5 (on one quadrant) and Year 6 and KS3 (on all four quadrants).<br />
You will find a PDF version and editable Word version available for download; both are exactly the same, so download whichever is more convenient for you.
There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.
