Recommended by TES Panel. An investigation which allows the learners to find the rules for transformations plus some example questions. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT.

#### Cash for questions revision activity

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.

Define the coordinate plane using the technical vocabulary required by Common Core and Texas TEKS curriculum using vocabulary. This lesson does more than just teach plotting points using ordered pairs! It also gives students practice in describing the process of graphing. The activities also use a variety of intervals so that your students will practice graphing whole numbers, decimals, and fractions.Use your lesson time wisely with this low prep notebook activity. All pieces are designed to fit neatly into your students' interactive notebooks and are jam-packed with info to minimize copying, cutting, folding, and gluing so that you can make the most of your prep and instructional time.

#### Hexagonal Numbers (Cross-number Puzzle)

This resource consists of a cross-number puzzle whose solution involves the calculation of hexagonal numbers. Geometric diagrams are given for the first few hexagonal numbers. Students will then have to devise methods to calculate larger such numbers.The Teachers Guide outlines three possible investigative approaches to these calculations. One involves generalising using the given geometric patterns. The other two approaches involve investigating numerical patterns which then leads to the construction of a nth term formula. One is through patterns in a difference table and the other involves patterns in the numerical factors of the hexagonal numbers.The answers to the puzzle clues are also given in the Teachers Guide.

#### Solving Equations Sum Pyramid (unknowns on both sides) SELF MARKING

Resource aimed at KS3/KS4 students or high ability KS2 students studying how to solve equations with unknowns on both sidesThe first page of the resource is a student worksheet designed for pupils to stick in correct answers.The second page contains 2 versions of the card set (for ease of photocopying).Pupils should cut out the cards with equations on and firstly stick the top line of equations to the top line of the pyramid on their worksheet (match correct letters to the ones on the top corner of the pyramid).The activity aims to build a correct &quot;number pyramid&quot; where the answer to each question should be the sum of the two above it. Once the first line of equations are solved, pupils can add together the answers to work out what answers they are looking to stick on the next row. The can continue in this manner until they have found which equation should fit on the bottom of the pyramid.

#### Substitution No 2 (Cross-Number Puzzle)

Completion of this cross-number puzzle involves evaluation of algebraic expressions involving squaring and the use of brackets. Most of the calculations can be performed without the use of a calculator. Students should be encouraged to only use a calculator as a final checking process.There is also a double-check built in due to the overlapping structure of the cross-number grid so students should be encouraged to calculate all the clues not just a minimal set.The answers and further suggestions are provided in the teacher's guide.

#### Algebra Worksheets: Collecting terms, expand and factorise, substitution.

This pack is filled with worksheet activities covering combining like terms, expand and factorise expressions and substitution. All worksheets are differentiated to three levels, offering supported worksheets, as well as worksheets which challenge the most able students. Answer sheets are also included for all worksheets.Term Trees introduce students to like terms, the essential knowledge needed to successfully combine like terms. Combing Terms Pyramid then puts this knowledge into practice. Geometry in Algebra goes one step further, and applies combining terms knoeledge to geometry scenarios.The final combining like terms worksheet is a fun activity; a crossword. Students collect terms on a worksheet, and then put their answers in the crossword sheet. Each differentiated worksheet has the same questions, but to make things easier for some students, we have included some terms in spaces to give a clue. This is also great for self checking answers.The next two worksheets focus on expanding and factorising, and is a standard worksheet with questions on both expanding brackets and factorising terms with one set of brackets (linear equations). For the challenging questions, this includes simple quadratics with one bracket; ie x(x+2). The second of these worksheets is an unusual activity combining area of shapes as a form of setting up equations to then factorise.The final two worksheets looks at substitution. The first consists of a grid; the rows gives the value of x and y, and the columns give the expression to be substituted. The second is a collection of questions about substitution which includes an applied question to do with the temperature conversion equation and knowledge of commutative expressions.All the worksheets in this pack focus on the essential manipuation skills of algebra needed to work with algebra effectively.You may also like:Algebra Substitution BingoCombining Like Terms Follow Me CardsAlgebra Patterns and Sequences
