Sequences SOW

A scheme of work designed for KS4 Maths as revision including some general teaching on sequences Created using free sample pages from an AQA GCSE 9-1 text book found at http://fdslive.oup.com/www.oup.com/oxed/secondary/maths/AQASBbladfinalversioncompressed.pdf?region=uk and http://fdslive.oup.com/www.oup.com/oxed/secondary/maths/RC1169_K41068_FINAL.pdfwebready.compressed.pdf?region=uk. The starter (connect) activities have been removed as they were specifically tailored to my class.

Sequences - complete unit for high ability

Sequences - complete unit for high ability

I have created 1 PowerPoint to cover a unit of work for a high ability class. Can be used with KS3 or KS4. Lesson 1: finding the next term, term-to-term rule and the nth term rule Lesson 2: finding the nth term rule of a quadratic sequence Lesson 3: generating sequences It also has a mini assessment and feedback questions to use after marking. All answers are provided. There is lots in here; differentiated starters, differentiated main activity, extensions, plenaries, GCSE questions with model answers and explained mark schemes, self assessments, literacy tasks and sheets that can be printed and laminated for pupils to use if they need extra support. Keywords are highlighted in different colours throughout. I have also attached a mini assessment (with mark scheme) that are GCSE questions and I use with KS4 classes. Please leave a review if you use it, I'd love some feedback so I can maybe create more like this. A lower to middle ability version is underway.

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.

KS4 Triangular Numbers Investigation

KS4 Triangular Numbers Investigation

This resource gets students to investigate how to find a formula for the triangular numbers through the investigating the number of football teams play each other in a round robin. This resource is suitable for GCSE students and more able KS3 students. Students are then guided through an investigation to see a step-by-step derivation for the algebraic nth term for the sequence of triangular numbers. This would be an excellent way of introducing how to find the nth term of quadratic sequences as pupils will be familiar with the triangular numbers sequence.

KS3 Triangular Numbers Investigation

KS3 Triangular Numbers Investigation

This investigation is an effective way of introducing triangular numbers for those in KS3 and gets students to explore the sequence of triangular numbers through shapes and their properties. Pupils could build the triangular numbers using mutli-link cubes or something similar and gives students a visual representation of them. Others topics touched by this resource are

KS3 and KS4 Triangular Numbers Revision Sheet

KS3 and KS4 Triangular Numbers Revision Sheet

This is a great revision source for KS3 and KS4 pupils on triangular numbers. The resource includes a definition and explanation, patterns which can be found in the sequence, how to find the nth term of the sequence and worked examples of exam questions involving triangular numbers. Depending on the ability of the class, you may wish to differentiate; the opening part of the resource is suitable for less able learners whilst the later part of the resource should stretch more able students. Other topics linked with this resource include finding the nth term of quadratic sequences, generating sequences and properties of numbers.

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.

Properties of Numbers Displays

Doc and PDF formats. Includes: * Factors & Multiples (which I used by printing together onto A3 and laminating) * Prime Numbers and Prime Factors (which I used by printing together onto A3 and laminating) * Square Numbers (which I printed, sliced up into its individual squares, laminated, then sliced up again and stuck on the wall in sequence) * Cube Numbers (did as above with the square numbers)
