This booklet contains over 50 problem solving questions suitable for KS3 and GCSE classes. These are the questions that we have been putting out each day in the run up to GCSE exams. The answers are also provided with each question.
There are problems that are suitable for foundation and higher and ones that are suitable for higher tier only.
We hope to release more questions like this over the course of next year that you can use on a regular basis with your classes including some open ended problems. Please keep a look out for our work.
In June 2016 we plan to release our new KS3 schemes of work. The schemes build on the work we have been doing within primary. We are keen to work with secondary schools next year who might be interested in implementing this KS3 scheme.
As always we welcome any feedback on the work we are doing and the materials that we are releasing.
Thank you for taking an interest in our work.
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:
3 worksheets for translations.
The first one is for them to draw the translated shape and the second is for the pupils to write the translation themselves.
The third contains both of the above plus a few blank grids for pupils to create their own shape and translation and to pass to a friend to translate the shape.
These are three lessons worth of powerpoints and worksheets about the new topic of functions at GCSE.
The first powerpoint and worksheet introduces functions, the second covers composite functions and the third inverse functions. Each worksheet comes with answers.
Promote independent thinking and problem solving strategies with this resource on equations of circles. Pupils must use their mathematical knowledge along with the clues provided to solve the 'mystery'.
Pupils will have to write the equation of a circle using the centre and radius. They will also have to work with the circumference in terms of pi, use pythagoras' theorem to calculate the distance between two points and square a surd.
Full instructions, ideas for support and extension, and a solution are provided in the resource - what more could you need?
