This resource is made up of a powerpoint lesson and three worksheets with progressively harder examples about rearranging formulas. The aim is to introduce rearranging as an extension to solving equations by 'doing the same to both sides' so that students see that they are just extending skills they already possess. The new subject only appears once but the questions involve fractions, use of brackets and square and cube roots.
The formulas used are mostly ones encountered elsewhere in maths e.g. volume and area formulas or speed and density. This means the powerpoint is also useful for revising other topics too. There is particular emphasis on the form s = d/t to prepare students for coping with trigonometric formulas.
The worksheets include the answers and working out.

This resource comprises of a well structured presentation with clear and clean slides, in which you (or pupils) will write on, and therefore model as you do, the answers. I also like the comparison of rearranging to solving. It also comes with a set of three different worksheets, varying in difficulty, each with solutions.
Great resource, thank you!
