Quadratic Sequences 1 (Loop Cards)

Quadratic Sequences 1 (Loop Cards)

This download contains four sets of cards. Students choose a set and sort them into order by answering the questions. Then they try to do it faster using a different set, which has a different sort order. After downloading these, click --> https://tes.com/.../loop-cards for Loop Cards on other topics. -- The cards can either be used by individuals, pairs or small groups. My favourite use is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins!) Solutions and instructions are included. Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.

Quadratic Sequences 1 (Treasure Hunt)

Quadratic Sequences 1 (Treasure Hunt)

This activity requires students spot the pattern in a quadratic sequence and then work out the next two terms. Click -->https://tes.com/.../Treasure Hunts to download Treasure Hunts on more than 20 other topics. --- A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so. Unlike most Treasure Hunts, this one has the added feature that the answers to the questions give an encrypted clue. When students decipher this clue, it reveals where the treasure is hidden! The question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large version can be pinned around the room and used for a whole class activity. The smaller cards can be used for group work or by individuals. The smaller cards are particularly helpful during interventions. Colour coding: I have used colours to indicate the increasing difficulty of questions: Red, Orange and Green (from primary up to GCSE Foundation) Blue and Purple (GCSE Higher) If you like this resource then please rate it and/or leave a comment by clicking here --> https://tes.com/.../Quick Comment

Sequences Bingo

Sequences Bingo

Bingo aimed at KS3, focused on finding the next term in the sequence. Supplied is a PDF of the answers and a PowerPoint with the bingo slides. Play for either a house or a line. One of the questions is a red herring with an answer not being on the grid to chose from. This will highlight to you if there are any students who don't follow the rules of the game.

5.NBT.A.2 - Quiz and Answer Guide

5.NBT.A.2 - Quiz and Answer Guide

Assess student understanding of standard 5.NBT.A.2 with this quiz. Students answer five questions that test their ability to explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. This product includes: • 3 multiple choice questions • 2 fill-in-the-blank questions • An accompanying answer guide with correct answers and DOK (Depth of Knowledge) levels

KS3 Topic Revision Sheets Pack

KS3 Topic Revision Sheets Pack

A set of revision sheets (each including worked examples of exam questions) which can be used in lessons and for pupils to store for revision in the future. Topics covered are area and properties of 2-D shapes, Triangular Numbers, Area and Circumference of a Circle and simplifying and dividing ratios. The sheets are set out in the style of a textbook, but in a much more concise manner, not only reminding pupils of the key points of the topic, but also providing an explanation of the maths behind them. There are strong cross-curricular links with literacy, with pupils encouraged to learn mathematical terminology.

KS3 Maths Revision Pack

KS3 Maths Revision Pack

This is a great value, extremely useful resource to help students with KS3 Maths revision. It contains a glossary of all mathematical terms on the syllabus to help students become familiar with terminology and boost literacy skills, a test on the essential skills they will use in KS3 Maths as well as a handy formulae sheet for areas of 2-D shapes and properties of a circle. The pack also includes teaching/revision sheets for pupils on finding the area and circumference of a circle, ratios (simplifying and dividing an amount into given quantities), 2-D shapes (including Polygons), Triangular Numbers (which covers the properties and finding the nth term of the sequence with worked examples of exam questions). The pack concludes with an investigation teachers can use to show pupils the origin of the triangular numbers sequence.

Identifying and Reasoning about Multiples

Identifying and Reasoning about Multiples

A brief introduction followed by a series of questions / activities exploring multiples and sequences. Objectives: Y5 - identify multiples. Y6 - Identify common multiples. Y6 - Generate and describe linear number sequences. The skills used in the task includes reasoning about multiples, divisibility, sequences and remainders. Extra grids at the end of the presentation plus the Microsoft excel file for creating your own.

Sequences SOW

Sequences SOW

A scheme of work designed for KS4 Maths as revision including some general teaching on sequences Created using free sample pages from an AQA GCSE 9-1 text book found at http://fdslive.oup.com/www.oup.com/oxed/secondary/maths/AQASBbladfinalversioncompressed.pdf?region=uk and http://fdslive.oup.com/www.oup.com/oxed/secondary/maths/RC1169_K41068_FINAL.pdfwebready.compressed.pdf?region=uk. The starter (connect) activities have been removed as they were specifically tailored to my class.

Sequences

Sequences

COMPLETE UNIT FOR MIDDLE TO HIGH ABILITY. I have created 1 PowerPoint of 112 slides to cover a unit of work for a high ability class. Can be used with KS3 or KS4. Lesson 1: finding the next term, term-to-term rule and the nth term rule Lesson 2: finding the nth term rule of a quadratic sequence Lesson 3: generating sequences It also has a mini assessment and feedback questions to use after marking. All answers are provided. There is lots in here; differentiated starters, differentiated main activity, extensions, plenaries, GCSE questions with model answers and explained mark schemes, self assessments, literacy tasks and sheets that can be printed and laminated for pupils to use if they need extra support. Keywords are highlighted in different colours throughout. I have also attached a mini assessment (with mark scheme) that are GCSE questions and I use with KS4 classes. Please leave a review if you use it, I'd love some feedback so I can maybe create more like this. A lower to middle ability version is underway.

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.
