Powerpoint: Challenging Higher Maths Logs Exponentials Questions Worked Solutions

Powerpoint: Challenging Higher Maths Logs Exponentials Questions Worked Solutions

40 slide Powerpoint on the topic of Logs and Exponentials, which is intended to challenge more able Higher Maths students who may be considering continuing their Maths studies by taking the Advanced Higher course. The Powerpoint begins with a brief revision of the main rules, followed by 25 multi-part questions. Many of these problem solving questions are multi-topic (such as relating to composite functions, transformations of functions, inverse functions, circles, quadratic theory, cubics and synthetic division, straight line theory, proofs, surds, indices etc) and some require changes of log base, the use of exponential substitutions, and the factorising of exponential and logarithmic functions. There are several examples of finding constants and plotting graphs for log-linear functions. Fully Worked Solutions (including many graphs) included.

GCSE Maths Foundation Revision Poster Worksheets

GCSE Maths Foundation Revision Poster Worksheets

AImed at GCSE Foundation students. Designed to be printed at A3 size. There are 4 separate posters; Number, Algebra, Shape and Data. They are not comprehensive and so do not cover all topics. They are meant to be a reminder of the basics. I made these for a class who were mainly working at a Grade 4 and needed lots of confidence boosting. They really liked these posters and once completed and they said they put them on their wall at home to remember how to do the questions. They liked the fact that they were hand drawn! Answers provided on a separate file.

Factor theorem 2 - fully factorising polynomials

Factor theorem 2 - fully factorising polynomials

Second part of Factor Theorem for my IGCSE Further pure maths, although easily adaptable for IB and A Level, this time on using the factor theorem when we have not been given any factor, before fully factorising by factorising a quadratic. Starter task reminds of using the factor theorem to show if (x-a) is a factor full examples given and follow up questions as well as evaluation tasks involving peer assessment. hope you enjoy, please leave feedback (next time I will do remainder theorem)

Quadratic Sequences 1 (Treasure Hunt)

Quadratic Sequences 1 (Treasure Hunt)

This activity requires students spot the pattern in a quadratic sequence and then work out the next two terms. Click -->https://tes.com/.../Treasure Hunts to download Treasure Hunts on more than 20 other topics. --- A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so. Unlike most Treasure Hunts, this one has the added feature that the answers to the questions give an encrypted clue. When students decipher this clue, it reveals where the treasure is hidden! The question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large version can be pinned around the room and used for a whole class activity. The smaller cards can be used for group work or by individuals. The smaller cards are particularly helpful during interventions. Colour coding: I have used colours to indicate the increasing difficulty of questions: Red, Orange and Green (from primary up to GCSE Foundation) Blue and Purple (GCSE Higher) If you like this resource then please rate it and/or leave a comment by clicking here --> https://tes.com/.../Quick Comment

Systems of Linear Equations Partner Practice

Systems of Linear Equations Partner Practice

Practice finding the solutions to linear equations in 2 different pairs of collaborative worksheets for students. Pairs of students complete different worksheets of 8 problems with the same solution. A/B asks students to solve the system where both equations are solved for a variable. C/D asks students to solve the system where only one of the equations is solved for a variable. Also included are 6 different exit tickets to use to assess student understanding. . Great activity for students to check their work, and promote problem solving skills. Use on one day for different levels of learners in the classroom or different days. You can also use as homework checks using one of the versions and follow up with the matching version the next day to have students check their homework answers. Also a great idea for sub work. Answer keys for all are also included.

Solve Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing Problem Pass Activity

Solve Systems of Linear Equations by Graphing Problem Pass Activity

Twelve problems provide practice or review solving systems of linear equations using the graphing method. Practice includes graphing equations in slope-intercept form, point-slope form, standard form, and problems with “no solution” and “infinitely many solutions”. Students work with a partner while seated at their desks. They should write in their own notebook or on the blank Answer Sheet (included). At the same time the first pair of students is working on Problem 1, the second pair works on Problem 2, the third pair works on Problem 3, etc. At the teacher’s signal, all students pass their problem in a specific direction. The students who started with Problem 2 should now pass it to the students who started with Problem 1, the students who started with Problem 3 pass it to the students who started with Problem 2, etc. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problem to the last pair of students, or the teacher may prefer to deliver these each time. Students now flip over their new page to find the ANSWER to the problem they just finished. Students continue to work problems in order, pass problems and check their answers on the back of the next problem page until they have completed all problems included in the activity. It is important for the teacher to tell the entire class when to pass their first problem and to tell everyone where to look for the first answer on the back of their NEXT problem. After this first pass together, I’ve allowed students to work and pass problems at their own pace. Teachers may prefer to set a timer so all students pass their current problem to the next pair of students simultaneously. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 12 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class. Keep complete sets in order. It is very important to hand out problems in numerical order so the page with the answer on the back follows its problem number. As you hand out problems in order, problem side up, tell each pair of students the direction they should pass their problem when finished. This direction may vary by row if you zig-zag or “snake” up and down the rows of desks. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problems to the last pair of students, or you may prefer to deliver these each time.

Sequences Bingo

Sequences Bingo

Bingo aimed at KS3, focused on finding the next term in the sequence. Supplied is a PDF of the answers and a PowerPoint with the bingo slides. Play for either a house or a line. One of the questions is a red herring with an answer not being on the grid to chose from. This will highlight to you if there are any students who don't follow the rules of the game.
