Resources and ideas for mathematics, algebra, sequences, written by teachers to support teaching and learning

#### New 9-1 GCSE Maths Grade 8/9 target - Algebra

What’s in this pack?This pack contains 48 exam style question cards covering the new curriculum for the top grades of the new gcse in algebra. The design of a card means you can use these in a variety of ways in your classroom; as a starter or a plenary, as extension work, as homework or as a revision tool. An answer key is included.The questions feature some challenging topics including rearranging fractional equations, expanding more than one brackets, manipulating and solving algebraic fractions with both addition and division, algebraic proofs that include some well known theories, as well as some rewriting of equation questions, factorising, completing the square and solving of quadratic equations and inequalities where the coefficient of x^2 is greater than one, as well as where the question is set up through scenarios, finding the nth term of quadratic sequences and working with the Fibonacci sequence, working with quadratic simultaneous equations, composite and inverse functions, and a variety of graph transformation questions. Topics are as follows:-Rearranging Equations-Binomials-Algebraic Fractions-Algebraic Proof -Quadratics Sequences-Quadratic Inequalities -Simultaneous Equations -Functions -Transformations

#### C1 Revision Notes

This is for Core 1, AS Maths. Originally created for the Edexcel exam board but applicable to other exam boards too.The following topics are covered:-Coordinate Geometry (shown on image)-Curve Sketching and Graph Transformations-Differentiation and Integration-Indices-Inequalities-Quadratics-Sequences-Surds

#### C2 Edexcel Required Knowledge Information Sheet

This sheet is a checklist for students that lists what must be learnt from all topics, from the C2 Specification for Edexcel

#### Graphing Number Patterns

Graphing simple linear equations that students make up themselves.

#### More challenging linear sequences questions aimed at Y7 mid-high ability.

More challenging linear sequences questions aimed at Y7 mid-high ability. Includes more basic linear sequence questions, but also working backwards from a rule to find a term and working out whether a value is in a sequence or not. Ten questions suitable for within a lesson, as homework or as an extension task.

#### ProjectALesson: Sequences Term to Term Rules

A biggie! Covers : Finding a rule in words. Finding an algebraic term to term rule, using an algebraic term to term rule and the difference between a geometric and arithmetic progression. Enough for one lesson on basic stuff and one lesson of the higher stuff. Lots of enrichment for strong pupils but enough in there for a foundation lesson.Note: As far as I’m aware, the GCSE HIGHER spec calls for use of these formulas, not for students to derive them . (example: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-DP1ZoAPX2Cw/VbiElj5ZY6I/AAAAAAAAGAI/DBH81DeurGw/s1600/ocr.PNG)However, I think introducing the notation is possibly the best way to teach the use of it. Feel free to skip these parts if you think they’re not appropriate for your pupils. I leave them here as additional enrichment. IncludesAll explanation 4 Activities A problem solving question2 learning checksEVERYTHING you need to teach this topic in one PowerPoint.ADDITIONAL NOTE : Do not download the clip art. You only need the single Powerpoint file. Clipart generates a nice preview so you can see what's included before you buy.

#### SET 3 of 'GET20' Mathematics GCSE revision / Teaching Method and Resources (New Edexcel Style)

This is Set 3 of the 'GET20' resource pack. This set closely follows the first set of Edexcel secure mock papers (again, repetition works!.) Make sure you have set 1 first so you have the student score tracker to use.

Without sounding overly confident - it's the best resource out there!Many thanksCopyright T.TaylorNOTE: Following its success in the summer sale, I have decided to keep the sale price - so grab a bargain! Used to be £5. Many thanks.

#### Building a Linear Function from a Pattern

I use these guided notes in conjunction with the Mathematics Vision Project Secondary Math 1 curriculum, Getting Ready chapter 1 lesson 2. Topics this covers are: linear growth, rates of change, table of values, constructing a linear equation given a pattern, solving linear equations, graphing a line given a point and slope, graphing a line given slope intercept form. I have the students work in small groups or pairs and explore the linear pattern together. I give some direct instruction, but I leave it open for the students to work together to come up with an expression or equation that represents the table of values for the growing pattern. I have also used this worksheet (separated by examples) as a centers activity. Example 1 is the first center, Example 2 is the second center, etc.4 pages. No solution key
