Equivalent Surds (Loop Cards)

Equivalent Surds (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. 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.

Recognising square numbers puzzle

Recognising square numbers puzzle

A simple (and quick) activity or starter to refresh the first 15 square numbers. Students need to shade in all the square numbers they can find to reveal a short message. (very short :) ) I designed this as a starter for a simplifying surds lesson where the ability to spot square numbers was important. It could be used as a simple warm up or as a test.

Equivalent Surds (Treasure Hunt)

Equivalent Surds (Treasure Hunt)

This activity requires students to manipulate surds and write them in their 'simplified' form. It is great for consolidating or revising. Click --> https://tes.com/.../Treasure Hunts for similar style Treasure Hunts on more than 20 other topics. --- Note that unlike most Treasure Hunts, this one has the added feature that the answers give an encrypted clue. Deciphering this clue reveals where the treasure is hidden! 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. These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large cards can be pinned around around the classroom and used for a whole class activity; the smaller (loop cards) can be used for group work or by individuals – they are particularly helpful for one-to-one tutorials and during interventions.
