Groups - teaching notes and examples (FP3)

Groups - teaching notes and examples (FP3)

I have used this resource a few times with my classes to cover the whole topic of groups. This 24-page worksheet covers all the required knowledge and skills for FP3. Each section starts with introductory notes or examples, followed by an exercise for students to attempt. The sections are: 1. Sets, binary operations, closed/commutative/closed operations, identity elements and inverses. 2. Groups - definition of a group, order of a group, group tables 3. Multiplicative groups and cancellation laws 4. Groups using modular arithmetic 5.Symmetries of shapes 6. The order of an element 7. Cyclic groups and generators 8. Subgroups 9. Lagrange's theorem 10. Isomorphic groups Note that answers to the examples/exercises are not included.

Venn Diagrams and Set Notation Handout

Venn Diagrams and Set Notation Handout

Introduction to set notation and venn diragrams from the new GCSE, produced alongside AQA guidance documents (includes some snapshots of this). Handout has a PDF and editable PowerPoint format. Idea is that students fill in gaps on their version of the notes (printed as a booklet) as you talk through them on the board. Includes some basic examples, I then used questions from textbook and sourced from resourceaholic.
