KS3 and KS4 Algebra Investigation

KS3 and KS4 Algebra Investigation

This is an interesting investigation which mainly covers the topics of rearranging formulae, expanding brackets and simplifying expressions. However, there are some links to ICT as the words input and output are introduced to students. The pupils are asked to think of a domino and using all the possible digits on the domino as input (if the numbers on the domino were 1 and 6: A=1 and B=6) into a given algorithm find an output. The pupils are then asked to find a formula which connects the input and output. This investigation is very logical and gets students to see patterns, but there is also a very logical, satisfying solution to the problem which is sequential and hopefully gets students to appreciate the rigor of mathematics.

Place value - use scales to find intermediate decimal values

Place value - use scales to find intermediate decimal values

20 quick questions. Use scale on left to get middle value (eg. between 5 and 6) or to establish the increments on the scale. 2nd question, fill in two more values on scale on right based on that answer. Repeat x 10. (Most increments are 10, but some are just five 'per unit'. One, two and 3 decimal places.)

KS3 and KS4  Compound Interest Bank Account interest investigation

KS3 and KS4 Compound Interest Bank Account interest investigation

This resource handily introduces compound interest to more able KS3 groups and GCSE in the form of adding interest to a bank account. Other topics covered include percentages and decimal multipliers. This resource is an investigation (with teacher notes and accompanying worksheets) which gets students to investigate whether how often interest is added to a bank account effects the total amount of interest. The problem is so: I invest £1,000 in a savings account at an interest rate of 3.1% p.a. for one year. What interval at which the interest is paid will get me the most money? The students can then be guided to calculating the total amount of interest when it is added, daily montly etc. before being guided to an overall formula to solve the problem.
