Coordinate grids Spot the Error

Coordinate grids Spot the Error

A set of 12 coordinate grids, some correct and others with common errors- uneven spacing, using different scales on different sides of the same axis, not drawing the axis on a line, etc. I often use this as a starter with older students before starting a unit on graphing to remind them of all the things they can and cannot to do. Answers included.

Clumsy Clive On Differentiation

Clumsy Clive On Differentiation

Clive is tackling a new topic on the GCSE curriculum, but predicatably is struggling. Four questions getting increasingly difficult requiring you to check as Clive has made mistakes. These will hopefully generate discussion in class.

Polynomials Wordsearch Starter Activity Maths Algebra Equations Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Polynomials Wordsearch Starter Activity Maths Algebra Equations Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Polynomials'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Clumsy Clive On Simultaneous Equations

Clumsy Clive On Simultaneous Equations

Clive is tackling a simultaneous equations homework but as per usual is making errors. There are three sets of linear simultaneous equations to correct and a linear/quadratic to look at. I have tried to cover regular errors for students to spot, correct and discuss.

Clumsy Clive On Function Notation

Clumsy Clive On Function Notation

New on the GCSE syllabus, Clive is struggling with function notation icluding inverse and composite functions. Can your students check, correct and explain what Clive has done wrong in the four questions? This should encourage discussion.

16.2b Plotting y = x^2 + ax

16.2b Plotting y = x^2 + ax

This has been developed in line with the Pearson GCSE Foundation Scheme of Work. It is, however, suitable for use by those who do not use this exam board or who wish to use it with a younger, more able, class. The first half of the PowerPoint contains: * Worked examples (useful for non-specialists) * An AFL example * Classwork options (Grade 3, 4 or 5) for the teacher to choose to complete (answers included) * In built revision through the inter-linking of previously taught topics The second half of the PowerPoint contains: * Worked examples embedding the newly taught topic in a different context * An AFL example * Classwork (answers included) * In built revision through the inter-linking of previously taught topics * Exit pass that will make your marking process quicker, easier and less superificial This is part of a set of PowerPoints that have been developed for this particular unit. Other units will become available over time.

Graphs Matching

Graphs Matching

This is an activity, with accompanying worksheets, that should encourage a discussion between students and teacher about equations of graphs/functions and what each part "does" regarding the position of the line/curve. You could lead on to other discussions about how the function/equation could be presented.

Solving quadratics maze

Solving quadratics maze

A 6x8 grid in which students need to find their way across the grid by finding quadratic equations that can factorise. The solutions to the euqations need to be found before the students can move on. The other equations can be solved using the quadratic formula. Answers and the correct route across the grid are given. Students find this rich task highly challenging but enjoyable. I find they complete far more questions in this way. Please feedback on how thew resource worked and any suggestions for further resources of this type.
