I provide maths lessons and worksheets across various GCSE and A Level topics.
Problem solving with fractions (mixed operations)
2molarHCl

Problem solving with fractions (mixed operations)

(0)
This is a set of 12 questions involving adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. Students need to read the worded problems and decide which operation they need to use. I ran this as a relay and displayed their team names and scores on the second powerpoint; they had 3 attempts at a question before they had to move on.
Composite functions
2molarHCl

Composite functions

(0)
An introduction to functions, the notation used and composite functions. A nice and structured powerpoint, with a tarsia activity to finish.
AS Solving quadratic equations
2molarHCl

AS Solving quadratic equations

(0)
A powerpoint used to recap solving quadratic equations, by factorising, completing the square and using the quadratic formula. It was used for a C1 lesson but is also relevant for GCSE.
Surface area (with a wrapping task)
2molarHCl

Surface area (with a wrapping task)

(0)
A lesson on surface area, including a starter on area of 2D shapes, the surface area of cuboids and the surface area of prisms, mainly triangular based. There is a wrapping task that was designed at Christmas time, which involves students working in groups to find out how much wrapping paper is needed and how much it will ost to wrap all of the presents. This could easily be adapted for a birthday or any other celebration.
Collecting like terms
2molarHCl

Collecting like terms

(0)
A lesson for low ability students that introduces collecting like terms, first by using language and pictures then moving into the more abstract. There is a differentiated worksheet in the powerpoint, which is followed by using whiteboards to simplify expressions with multiple terms including negatives.
Factorising quadratics
2molarHCl

Factorising quadratics

(0)
A complete lesson on factorising quadratics. The starter recaps expanding expressions, before moving on to an explanation of how to factorise quadratics. There is a sequence of questions to be used with mini-whiteboards until students are confident. Included in the powerpoint is a slide with questions that are to be printed and cut out, so students can attempt two questions at a time and check with you in the form of a relay. There are also extension questions and help sheets towards the end of the powerpoint.
Sketching quadratic graphs
2molarHCl

Sketching quadratic graphs

(0)
A lesson on sketching quadratic graphs by finding the roots and turning points. Included are scaffolded worksheets for breaking down the steps (solving the quadratic, completing the square etc.).
AS Equations with indices
2molarHCl

AS Equations with indices

(0)
AS Level lesson on solving equations involving indices. Includes examples of raising both sides of an equation to a given power and manipulating numbers to have the same base (e.g. 9 = 3^2, 27 = 3^3).
Equation of perpendicular lines
2molarHCl

Equation of perpendicular lines

(0)
Lesson covering the equation of a perpendicular line. Starts with students identifying reciprocals of numbers before moving on to finding the equation of a perpendicular line to a given line passing through a given point.
AS Roots and the discriminant
2molarHCl

AS Roots and the discriminant

(0)
A powerpoint for C1 that covers using the quadratic formula, what roots are and how the discriminant can be used to determine the number of roots a function has.
AS Tranformations of functions
2molarHCl

AS Tranformations of functions

(0)
An introduction to transforming functions for C1. The worksheet provided has axes for students to draw the transformed functions. The second lesson moves away from using the coordinates and includes an example of an exam question.
A2 Modulus functions
2molarHCl

A2 Modulus functions

(0)
An introduction to the modulus function. Covers sketching different modulus functions and solving modulus equations by sketching.
Equation of a circle
2molarHCl

Equation of a circle

(0)
A lesson on discovering the equation of a circle. Students start by plotting coordinates using a table of values followed by whiteboard questions on identifying the radius given an equation and writing the equation given the radius. After this are a few examples of finding the points of intersection of a line and a circle using simultaneous equations.
Worded ratio questions
2molarHCl

Worded ratio questions

(0)
This is a complete lesson on ratio, starting with the basics of simplifying ratios, sharing amounts in a ratio, calculating parts of a ratio given the difference between and finishing with a set of problem solving questions with answers provided.
Area of shaded regions
2molarHCl

Area of shaded regions

(0)
A scaffolded lesson on finding the area of shaded regions, made from combinations of circles and other shapes. The slides can be printed and break down what the students should be thinking and trying to calculate. Also included is a test on the area and circumference of circles and the area and perimeter of sectors.
Mixed higher GCSE revision starters (79)
2molarHCl

Mixed higher GCSE revision starters (79)

(0)
This is a collection of starters that I used for my second set Year 11s as a way to retain knowledge and revise higher tier GCSE topics. There are 79 slides, each with 4-6 questions featuring a mixture of topics and problem solving exam style questions. Students became used to the routine and their confidence noticeably improved over time doing these every lesson.
Foundation GCSE revision starters (107)
2molarHCl

Foundation GCSE revision starters (107)

(0)
This is a collection of starters that I used for my third set Year 10s as a way to retain knowledge and revise foundation tier GCSE topics. There are 107 slides, each with 4-6 questions featuring a mixture of topics and problem solving exam style questions. Students became used to the routine and their confidence noticeably improved over time doing these every lesson.
