FRACTIONS INDICES AND STANDARD FORM UNIT 18- LAWS OF INDICES 18 - 2

Hi folks, firstly I just wanted to say thanks to TES and all those who are sharing their fantastic resources. All I have done is utilised some of these resources and made a flipchart with a humble contribution from myself. Some of you will recognise parts of your resources embedded in the flip. I have TEEPED the lesson as well. The lesson has been created with reference to the new edexcel GCSE 9-1 grade boundaries.Please feel free to ameliorate it further.

Triple Brackets

Triple Brackets

This collection of five worksheets ( complete with answers and working out ) covers the basics of multiplying out triple brackets then moves on to using the results in different situations. Students are eased into the topic with a little revision of the multiplying out that they will already have mastered then there is plenty of practise with progressively harder examples of multiplying out triple brackets including those with repeated factors. The extension sheets include proofs and finding the difference between two expressions ( a challenge in itself to remember to do x³ +3 x² + 3x + 1 )- ( x³ - 3x² + x - 1 ) carefully ! ). Geometric problems involving cube diagrams to illustrate the expansion of ( a + b )³ will provide useful extension work for the brightest GCSE students. Evaluate 1.1³ to show how powers of numbers can be found using expansions. The sheets could be used independently by your brightest y9s and above as they include instructions.

Quiz - Order of Operations BIDMAS /  BODMAS - 2 Team Challenge

Quiz - Order of Operations BIDMAS / BODMAS - 2 Team Challenge

This is a 10 question quiz and 1 tie breaker question. The questions are all based around order of operations (BIDMAS / BODMAS) and start simple with no brackets, then with brackets and then insert the brackets. Every slide has two questions on, one for team 1 and another for team 2. Each question has 3 possible answers. Click the answer the team has chosen for it to highlight green if correct or red if incorrect. This allows you to open the question up to the other team to steal the point if you wish. I've design it so both teams have similar questions with different numbers at the same time to help prevent any students from being sat there not doing anything. I often ask all students to write their answer for their teams question on a whiteboard and take the majority answer from the team. This again means every student is participating. Each slide also has a star timer at the top. Each star represents 10 seconds and they gradually disappear. I hope you enjoy the quiz Miss B

Standard Form

Standard Form

Lesson on standard form, starts by looking at changing from an ordinary number to standard form (and vice versa) also looks at negative powers. Then moves on to calculations involving standard form.

Substitution Lesson - Including Quizzes, Worksheet and Model Answers on Substituting .

Substitution Lesson - Including Quizzes, Worksheet and Model Answers on Substituting .

(All answers are provided) I've designed this resource to allow students to start to understand substitution from the basics upwards. It begins with a stopwatch starter asking students to simplify basic algebraic expressions. This leads to a restaurant menu activity and a class discussion about how they intrinsically know how to substitute to find the total cost. I've found it's important to look at the language of mathematics to help students understanding. I find a perfect activity for this topic is connections, here students have to make links related to substitution and the words on the page, I've provided an example and then some possible answers for this. This means moving forward I can use mathematical language, such as variable, and be sure the students understand it's meaning. Afterwards there is a quick true or false activity with the answers, you could do this as a mini whiteboard activity, class discussion, group task or silent focus. I personally use this with whiteboards and hammer out the misconceptions. It is a good tool in getting the students to practise providing explanations and reasons verbally for their answers. I've then modelled 4 different examples of varying ability and these appear step by step and include examples with negative numbers. There is then a catchphrase quiz activity which I find useful to hammer out any misconceptions the students may have. (The answers or on the next slide for this, some teachers may find it useful to jot these down or print that slide before completing the interactive activity). The catchphrase is bad hair day. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 4 separate sections a skill 1 & 2 and a stretch 1 & 2. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. (Answers are provided) Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have. Miss B
