Expanding Brackets and Simplifying Revision

Expanding Brackets and Simplifying Revision

An Excel Workbook containing two spreadsheets to practice the GCSE skills of expanding a single bracket and simplifying an expression. Both sheets have an associated answer sheet going through each question. The questions have multiple choice answers, generated using the answer and potential misconceptions. If the correct letter is given it turns the answer box green, or red if incorrect. Note that your computer will need Microsoft Excel with Calculation Options set to 'Manual' and Macros enabled. There is a set up sheet which gives some advice on how to do this. Clicking the 'More Questions' black square will clear the sheet and recalculate questions and answers. Excel's Zoom Bar can be used to scale the sheet up and down to fit on your monitor. Note that as the questions are randomised, some questions could be repeated. With a constant number of re-generated questions (and answers), students can practice this to their heart's content. After all, practice makes perfect!

Colour by solving inequalities with extension

Colour by solving inequalities with extension

As the title suggests, this is a colouring sheet for practising solving linear inequalities. It also covers the concept of < and > being different also looking at x>1 and 1 Unlike other maths colouring sheets, each sheet only requires three different colours and therefore requires fewer teacher supplies. Students solve the answers to the questions and colour based on their solution. This then creates a pattern which looks great on a classroom wall. This version contains two questions which do not fit the pattern. Students are encouraged to create their own questions which do fit the pattern in order to stretch and challenge. Solution displayed with white spaces where questions do not fit pattern. All feedback gratefully accepted.

Equations with Brackets - Fully Differentiated Lesson

Equations with Brackets - Fully Differentiated Lesson

This PPT lesson was originally created for a middle set Year 8 class, but I have also used it with high ability Year 7 and low ability Year 9; it could also work as nice revision for GCSE students. Lower ability classes may need to spend two lessons on this, depending how much they can remember on linear equations! Some questions have been taken from MathsBox, and solutions have been provided. Please let me know if there are any errors and I will correct them as soon as I can.
