Index Laws Catchphrase

Index Laws Catchphrase

Catchphrase / Say What You See game covering multiplication, division, power and zero laws of indices. Two levels of difficulty (one without coefficients the other with coefficients). There are two phrases for each set of questions. I normally get students to number their pages 1-16 and give them a few minutes to answer as many questions as they can from the screen. I then use lolly sticks to randomly select a student who must give me an answer to one of the questions. If they get it right they reveal the square and can guess the phrase. I only let the student who has just given me an answer guess the phrase- reduces all the calling out and keeps them from guessing the phrase too quickly. I tend to have a small prize for the student that guesses the phrase. I also keep all the lolly sticks of the students who gave correct answers and pick a second winner. If the phrase is guessed really quickly then I continue to select students to give answers to have a chance at that second prize.

Clumsy Clive on Standard Form

Clumsy Clive on Standard Form

Clive has made some silly mistakes on his standard form homework. Your students' task is to check, correct and explain where he's gone wrong. These are typical errors I've experienced in teaching and are designed to create discussion.

UKS2 (Year 5 and Year 6) Ordering calculations using BODMAS

Learning Objectives Starter: - To perform (mental) calculations. - To revise factors, multiples and prime factors. Main Lesson: - To solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and a combination of these, including understanding the meaning of the equals sign (Year 5) - To use their knowledge of the order of operations to carry out calculations involving the 4 operations (Year 6) - To use conventional notation for the priority of operations, including brackets, powers and roots (KS3) This lesson consists of: A Starter consisting of a series of progressively harder, multi-step calculations and revision of common factors, common multiples and prime factors. A connect activity getting children to begin to understand why it is necessary to have a specific order when undertaking multi-step calculations. An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart, to teach how to apply BODMAS to brackets and orders / powers. This includes a PowerPoint presentation showing defining, explaining and applying BODMAS to two different calculations. A 4-way differentiated series of tasks requiring children to use BODMAS to carry out multi step calculations with all four operations, with brackets, squared and cube numbers and how to balance equations. A stretch challenge including square roots. Answer sheet provided to support marking. A final AFL / Next Steps task, asking children to correct mistakes in 3 multi-step calculations.

FRACTIONS INDICES AND STANDARD FORM UNIT 18- Calculating with Standard Form 18-5

Hi folks, firstly I just wanted to say thanks to TES and all those who are sharing their fantastic resources. All I have done is utilised some of these resources and made a flipchart with a humble contribution from myself. Some of you will recognise parts of your resources embedded in the flip. I have TEEPED the lesson as well. The lesson has been created with reference to the new edexcel GCSE 9-1 grade boundaries.Please feel free to ameliorate it further.
