Identities and Equating Coefficients: Full lesson, answers, quizzes, differentiated & exam questions

Identities and Equating Coefficients: Full lesson, answers, quizzes, differentiated & exam questions

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of handling identities and equating coefficients. It starts with 6 quick fire questions on expanding and simplifying single and double brackets and one complete the square question. Then the definitions of an equation and identity are there for discussion. This leads to students having to identify the equations and identities. Following this is two examples of show that this is an identity. One single bracket and one double bracket. Then there is an interactive pairing activity where students need to come to the board and select two cards. If they could be an identity leave them turned over, if not turn them back over and start again. (Snap) Following this is two examples of equating coefficients. One single bracket and one double bracket. Leading into a tick or trash activity where misconceptions can be discussed. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with 2 exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

Expanding Triple (Three) Brackets Full lesson & Answers, Quizzes, Differentiated Worksheet & Exam Qs

Expanding Triple (Three) Brackets Full lesson & Answers, Quizzes, Differentiated Worksheet & Exam Qs

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of expanding double brackets. It begins with a picture activity as the students come into the classroom they have to connect the images to figure out what the lesson is about (This is optional) It begins with a stopwatch starter where students need to to answer four simplifying and expanding algebraic expression questions. I'm very much aware that there are several different common approaches to teaching expanding brackets. I've included examples for each of the following methods. I know the method I teach sometimes varies on the class I am teaching. Feel free to swap the order and delete the examples you don't want, I felt it was important to give options though. Form x^3+bx^2+cx+d 1) Grid Method - 3 progressively harder examples 2)FOIL/Crabs claw method - 3 progressively harder examples The there are 3 questions for students to try in book. Form ax^3+bx^2+cx d 1) Grid Method - 2 progressively harder examples 2)FOIL/Half moon - 2 progressively harder examples The there are 3 questions for students to try in book. This then leads to two tick or trash questions, where the students need to select which person has answered the question correctly and discuss what the misconception of the other person was. There is then a n interactive wheel of fortune quizzing activity where students can come to the board. Spin the wheel, click the section it lands on, answer the question and total their points. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1 & 2 and a stretch 1. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with 2 exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

Expanding  Single  Brackets Linear Expression Full lesson & Answer Quizzes, Differentiated Worksheet

Expanding Single Brackets Linear Expression Full lesson & Answer Quizzes, Differentiated Worksheet

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of expanding single brackets. It begins with a stopwatch starter where students need to to answer three simplifying algebraic expression questions. This then leads to discussion over methods you could use to answer numerical questions such as 3(5-2). I'm very much aware that there are 3 different common approaches to teaching expanding brackets. I've included 4 examples for each of the following methods (12 different examples). I know the method I teach sometimes varies on the class I am teaching. 1) Algebra tiles - Explanation slides of how to multiply with algebra tiles, 4 progressively harder expanding bracket examples with algebra tiles and 4 mini whiteboard questions for the students to do themselves with algebra tile solutions. 2) Grid Method - 4 progressively harder examples of expanding brackets using the grid method, 5 mini white board questions 3)Claw/Arrow method - 4 progressively harder examples of expanding brackets using claw method and the same 5 mini white board questions as the grid method. This then leads to three tick or trash questions, where the students need to select which person has answered the question correctly and discuss what the misconception of the other person was. There is then a matching quiz interactive activity where students can come to the board, selected two cards and see if they are a pair. If they are leave them turned over, if not click the cards again to turn them back over. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with 4 exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

Expanding Brackets - Algebra - Two Team Quiz

Expanding Brackets - Algebra - Two Team Quiz

This is a 10 question quiz and 1 tie breaker question. The questions are all based around expanding single brackets and start simple at 2(x+3) and progress to 3(x+4)-2(x-5). Every slide has two questions on, one for team 1 and another for team 2. Each question has 3 possible answers. Click the answer the team has chosen for it to highlight green if correct or red if incorrect. This allows you to open the question up to the other team to steal the point if you wish. I've design it so both teams have similar questions with different numbers at the same time to help prevent any students from being sat there not doing anything. I often ask all students to write their answer for their teams question on a whiteboard and take the majority answer from the team. This again means every student is participating. Each slide also has a star timer at the top. Each star represents 10 seconds and they gradually disappear. I hope you enjoy the quiz Miss B
