KS4/KS5 maths convergence investigation

KS4/KS5 maths convergence investigation

This investigation (includes teacher notes and worksheets) is suited to very able KS4 groups and those in KS5 studying Maths. It covers the topics of convergence, subject of a formula and even can be expanded to iteration for more advanced learners. Pupils are given a starting value of a sequence, which they multiply by 3, add 10 to then and finally divide by 4 to generate the next term in the sequence. They then multiply this value by 3, add ten to it and divide by 4 to get the next term and so forth, generating the sequence in an iterative manner until the sequence converges. The goal of this investigation is to find a relationship between the initial starting value of the sequence and that which it converges to. This can be explained in a satisfying algebraic way using subject of the formula although pupils may offer other alternative explanations.

Colouring by Annuities - Obama, solve for PV, FV, & Interest (30 sheet mosaic)

Colouring by Annuities - Obama, solve for PV, FV, & Interest (30 sheet mosaic)

Highly Engaging!! Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom :) INVOLVED: Each worksheet has 3 questions each of: • Find future value • Find present value • Determine total interest earned • Determine total interest paid It's simple! 1. Calculate the answers. 2. Colour the squares. 3. Cut out your section. 4. Combine with the class! Students complete the problems to decode the colour key, then use it to colour their section of Obama mosaic. High school kids like colouring too! Their curiosity and desire to see the big picture come together will keep them working and helping each other! INCLUDED (.pdf and .docx files): ->Complete class set of 30 worksheets, that combine to create the Obama mosaic. Sheets contain the answers scrambled so students can monitor their own understanding. ->Complete answer keys all worksheets. -> Colour solution and coordinate guide for the mosaic. ->Each worksheet contains 12 problems. Ontario Curriculum: This is great for MAP4C, or MCR3U. All my "Colouring by..." math mosaics use the standard colours found in a Crayola 24 pack of coloured pencils. For best results, use the exact colour name match. Maybe a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun departmental purchase? :) I'd love to hear from you!

Algebra: Sequences 5 - Fibonacci Sequence, Golden Number, Ratio & Golden Spiral (2 lessons)

Algebra: Sequences 5 - Fibonacci Sequence, Golden Number, Ratio & Golden Spiral (2 lessons)

This lesson/revelation was one of the cornerstones of why I became passionate about mathematics. I have used various slides from this PowerPoint to do maths assemblies as well. Pupils love this lesson and some of the slides are mind-blowing. Love it !!! This builds on pupils understanding of sequences and does lend well to looking at series (different ways of writing rules or describing sequences). What I am saying is this lesson is brilliant in terms of adding the WOW factor as well as leading nicely into part 6 of the bundle/ series on sequences. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary.

Algebra: Sequences 4 - Cubic, Exponential and Other Sequences / Problems

Algebra: Sequences 4 - Cubic, Exponential and Other Sequences / Problems

This is the fourth lesson in the series. It looks at other sequences that are not linear or quadratic. These are becoming increasingly popular in GCSE exams as it stretches pupils understanding and not just their ability to pass exams. It also includes other sequences problems that don't neatly fit into the previous lessons. This is one of my favourite lessons to teach because there are so many different types of sequences and it does make you think. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary.

Algebra: Sequences 3 - Quadratic Sequences (+ worksheet)

Algebra: Sequences 3 - Quadratic Sequences (+ worksheet)

This lesson is on quadratic sequences and goes through two methods to solve quadratic sequences. One method builds on their understanding of linear sequences as well, which is helpful. The other builds on their understanding of substitution and simultaneous equations. I teach both methods even though the majority of pupils will adopt the first method. I have found that giving pupils more understanding and methods and this does pay dividends in the long run.

Algebra: Sequences 1 - Introduction to Linear Sequences (+ resources)

Algebra: Sequences 1 - Introduction to Linear Sequences (+ resources)

This is an excellent first lesson introducing linear sequences. Starting off with looking at the term to term rule and then quickly building into looking at the position to term rule or the nth term rule. This is a tricky topic for pupils and so there are quite a few teaching slides/ examples explaining what it is and why it is important. It goes onto looking at using the rule to work out another term further along in the sequence. The lesson comes with a starter, learning objectives, keywords, plenty of teaching slides/examples, questions with answers and plenary.

Mathematical Ambiguity & topic relationships

Mathematical Ambiguity & topic relationships

A presentation exploring ambiguity in the operations and objects of Maths and a set of concept maps that connect various topics of GCSE and IB/A level syllabuses. Quadratic, Log, Trigonometric and Functions are mapped in detail. Useful crossover introductory material that can provide some meaning and context in helping to make some connections between otherwise disparate fields. The presentation develops five areas in which the terms and processes of mathematics are inherently ambiguous: from the irrationals and infinity, the variable as a receptacle, the filling of the number line, forming operations with numbers to the notion of equality and sameness. That is from a number being both a noun (a fractional object) and a verb (process of adding a convergent series of rationals). That algebraic formulations using a variable x, allow for x in one sense to have any value ( before the equation is solved) to a specific value when it has been solved. As five separate chapters each one can serve as nonstandard provocative discussion/starter/plenary material .

Summation/Sigma Notation – Math puzzle

Summation/Sigma Notation – Math puzzle

Summation/Sigma Notation – Math puzzle I’ve included two different sizes of the same puzzle. The smaller size is only two pages and it great if you are going to print of individual copies for students to practice with in class or at home. The larger size requires 8 pieces of paper and quite a bit of space to solve – fun for centers and group work! Cut out the puzzle pieces (or even better if your students do it themselves) and students are to solve the puzzle so that it matches the solution provided. If your students are going to cut out the pieces then no prep is needed – the puzzle is not in order. I’ve been using these puzzles for years with great success! I recommend printing the puzzles on colourful paper and laminating them. This way you only have to cut them out once and they will last year after year! What is included in this product? • The solution to the puzzle – Pages 3 – 4 • The normal size puzzle – Pages 5 – 6 • The large size puzzle – Pages 7 – 14 • Expressions and Answers in a table format for easy grading or you can cut these out to play a matching game – Pages 15 – 16 My students love doing these types of puzzles. This product can also be used as a perfect revision of the school work to do at home. All answers can be easily checked thanks to the included solution to the puzzle or questions and answers shown in a table. Thank you for checking my resources.
