Absolute Value Inequalities and Equations

Absolute Value Inequalities and Equations

Students in my algebra class have a very difficult time understanding absolute value inequalities and equations with regard to graphing. I have developed a presentation that flows from one slide to the next with each step. It seems to have worked, as students have made tremendous strides in understanding. Common Core Standards for high school algebra include representing and solving one variable equations and inequalities graphically. This resource is tremendous in demonstrating the basic steps to both solving and graphing on a number line. It includes diagrams for equations and (conjunction-disjunction) inequalities in an easy to understand presentation. 72 slides. I'm sure you will be happy with this resource and many other algebra resources in My Shop.

Solving Linear Equations

Solving Linear Equations

A range of solving linear equations questions including questions with brackets, fractions, x on both sides. Answers include positive, negative and fractional answers. I designed this as HW for a GCSE higher group of fairly mixed ability. Students had the option of completing more easier questions or fewer harder questions. Answers are included on the sheet because I was focusing on method and working out.

Factorising and Solving quadratic equations includes questions with coefficient of x squared not 1

Factorising and Solving quadratic equations includes questions with coefficient of x squared not 1

Worksheet on factorising and solving quadratic equations (factorising double brackets). Questions increase in difficulty to include questions with a coefficient of x squared greater than 1. I used this for gcse higher students as HW. There are two options (easier starts with no coefficient of x squared, harder involves solving equations with coefficient of x squared as well as factorising into double brackets. I have uploaded the file as both a word document and pdf because some of my students couldn't see the equations when they open the word file at home. Answers included.

Change the Subject of Equations with Function Machines Card Sort

Change the Subject of Equations with Function Machines Card Sort

Change the Subject / Rearrange Formula card sort matching equations with the corresponding function machine. I often introduce this method as an alternative to balancing, particularly for KS3 and lower ability KS4 students. I find this helps students understand what order the operations have been done & helps build and understanding of how to "undo" the equations to make x the subject. Page 1- easier equations. Page 2- harder equations. Further extension- make x the subject of each equation). Page 3- answers (green is the answers to the matching task, red the answers to the extension). Note: I normally get the students to work in pairs and tell them to only cut on the dotted lines. Each student glues one block of questions into their book. I find this makes it a little easier to mark answers.

Polynomials Wordsearch Starter Activity Maths Algebra Equations Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Polynomials Wordsearch Starter Activity Maths Algebra Equations Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Polynomials'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
