Factorising & Removal of brackets Revision

Factorising & Removal of brackets Revision

This powerpoint can be used over two or three lessons as revision for removal of one bracket, two brackets and three brackets. Also it can be used to revise factorising through the use of one bracket, two brackets. Each section consists of two or three worked examples followed by several questions for the students to answer. I get the students to copy down the worked examples as we work through them and then they are left to attempt the given questions before we run through the solutions at the board. All answers are given.

KS3 Topic Revision Sheets Pack

KS3 Topic Revision Sheets Pack

A set of revision sheets (each including worked examples of exam questions) which can be used in lessons and for pupils to store for revision in the future. Topics covered are area and properties of 2-D shapes, Triangular Numbers, Area and Circumference of a Circle and simplifying and dividing ratios. The sheets are set out in the style of a textbook, but in a much more concise manner, not only reminding pupils of the key points of the topic, but also providing an explanation of the maths behind them. There are strong cross-curricular links with literacy, with pupils encouraged to learn mathematical terminology.

Rules of Algebra: Collect Like Terms, Multiply terms and Expand Brackets 3 lessons in 1!

I created this series of lessons as I felt I just needed to consolidate the algebra basics with all my classes. This will be useful for all ages and abilities. Broken down in to three topics 1. Collect Like Terms 2. Multiply terms 3. Expand Brackets Each topic has a number of examples and a set of questions to practice with answers. This powerpoint can be used to introduce basic topics or review and revise prior learning.

KS3 Maths Revision Pack

KS3 Maths Revision Pack

This is a great value, extremely useful resource to help students with KS3 Maths revision. It contains a glossary of all mathematical terms on the syllabus to help students become familiar with terminology and boost literacy skills, a test on the essential skills they will use in KS3 Maths as well as a handy formulae sheet for areas of 2-D shapes and properties of a circle. The pack also includes teaching/revision sheets for pupils on finding the area and circumference of a circle, ratios (simplifying and dividing an amount into given quantities), 2-D shapes (including Polygons), Triangular Numbers (which covers the properties and finding the nth term of the sequence with worked examples of exam questions). The pack concludes with an investigation teachers can use to show pupils the origin of the triangular numbers sequence.

Triangular Numbers Bundle

Triangular Numbers Bundle

A handy resource pack which includes 2 investigations on triangular numbers: 1 designed to introduce to pupils to the sequence (this resource links with properties of shape) and the other to help pupils understand the derivation of the formula for the nth term of the triangular numbers sequence (this resource links to finding the nth term of quadratic sequences, simplifying expressions and factorising). Also included is a revision sheet covering all the content of triangular numbers in the curriculum including the properties of the sequence, finding the nth term of it and worked examples of exam questions involving triangular numbers.
