- 4.747 reviews

A variety of PowerPoints, worksheets and activities I have made over the past year to teach simplifying expressions. They have been taught to a variety of abilities, so find the PPT that suits your class best. I've also included the &'Algebra Cards&'; ppt, which when cut up, were brilliant for helping my bottom set year 8 to play with forming and simplifying expressions.

#### GCSE Problem Solving Questions of the Day - 29th April

Every day in the run up to the GCSE exams we are intending to put up two GCSE problems of the day on Twitter. Here are the files you can use in the classroom. For each problem there are some variations that you might want to use instead or in addition.<br />
<br />
The first two problems are suitable for foundation and higher and the second are suitable for higher.<br />
<br />
The first problems can focus on percentages and the second problem students will need to form an equation.<br />
<br />
The second problems involve forming a simultaneous equation and equating two fractional expressions.<br />
<br />
We hope you enjoy using them. Please tweet your student solutions to @WRMathsHub for a chance to win a prize<br />

#### Linear Graphs Introductory Lesson

Linear Graphs Introductory Lesson<br />
<br />
Aimed at lower ability students. This lesson introduces linear graphs using function machines and by plotting coordinates.<br />
<br />
Starter: Coordinates - Differentiated activity (Old L4/5)<br />
I personally have the first slide printed and laminated to allow students to write on them using whiteboard pens. Students may focus on 1st quadrant only or all 4 quadrants dependant on ability.<br />
<br />
Main: Naming linear graphs by analysing coordinates (simple questions e.g. x=2, y=4)<br />
Plotting linear graphs by generating coordinates from a function machine.<br />
<br />
Suitable for KS3/KS4, lower ability but could be adapted for more able KS3 students.<br />
<br />
Credit given to 'New National Framework 7 book' and 'New Maths Frame working 7 workbook' for scanned in questions.
