Clumsy Clive On Substitution

Clumsy Clive On Substitution

Clive is tackling a bit of substitution but making mistakes again. Your students' task is to help Clive sort out his errors and explain to him what he's done so that he doesn't make the same mistakes in the future. Ideal for starter or plenaries and encourages discussion.

Rearranging formulae - Higher homework

Rearranging formulae - Higher homework

Homework or worksheet practising rearranging a formula. Questions involving changing the subject. 3 levels of difficulty, including questions where you need to factorise the subject. Answers included. 2 recap questions on surds and indices at the top, but that can be easily edited for a different topic.

Substitution - Murder mystery

Substitution - Murder mystery

These resources work together as a lesson and a short game designed to practice substitution in simple expressions. The operations that have been included are: Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division The presentation has an internal timer so that you do not have to click every time - just sit back, relax and enjoy. It can be played as a plenary activity and it will not last longer than ten minutes. There are two versions of this game, this one and a read-only one, which is slightly cheaper than the one you are viewing.

Triangular Numbers Bundle

Triangular Numbers Bundle

A handy resource pack which includes 2 investigations on triangular numbers: 1 designed to introduce to pupils to the sequence (this resource links with properties of shape) and the other to help pupils understand the derivation of the formula for the nth term of the triangular numbers sequence (this resource links to finding the nth term of quadratic sequences, simplifying expressions and factorising). Also included is a revision sheet covering all the content of triangular numbers in the curriculum including the properties of the sequence, finding the nth term of it and worked examples of exam questions involving triangular numbers.

KS4 Triangular Numbers Investigation

KS4 Triangular Numbers Investigation

This resource gets students to investigate how to find a formula for the triangular numbers through the investigating the number of football teams play each other in a round robin. This resource is suitable for GCSE students and more able KS3 students. Students are then guided through an investigation to see a step-by-step derivation for the algebraic nth term for the sequence of triangular numbers. This would be an excellent way of introducing how to find the nth term of quadratic sequences as pupils will be familiar with the triangular numbers sequence.

KS3 and KS4 Triangular Numbers Revision Sheet

KS3 and KS4 Triangular Numbers Revision Sheet

This is a great revision source for KS3 and KS4 pupils on triangular numbers. The resource includes a definition and explanation, patterns which can be found in the sequence, how to find the nth term of the sequence and worked examples of exam questions involving triangular numbers. Depending on the ability of the class, you may wish to differentiate; the opening part of the resource is suitable for less able learners whilst the later part of the resource should stretch more able students. Other topics linked with this resource include finding the nth term of quadratic sequences, generating sequences and properties of numbers.

KS4/KS5 maths convergence investigation

KS4/KS5 maths convergence investigation

This investigation (includes teacher notes and worksheets) is suited to very able KS4 groups and those in KS5 studying Maths. It covers the topics of convergence, subject of a formula and even can be expanded to iteration for more advanced learners. Pupils are given a starting value of a sequence, which they multiply by 3, add 10 to then and finally divide by 4 to generate the next term in the sequence. They then multiply this value by 3, add ten to it and divide by 4 to get the next term and so forth, generating the sequence in an iterative manner until the sequence converges. The goal of this investigation is to find a relationship between the initial starting value of the sequence and that which it converges to. This can be explained in a satisfying algebraic way using subject of the formula although pupils may offer other alternative explanations.

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.
