Iteration and Iterative Processes - Full lesson, quizzes, differentiated worksheet, exam questions

(2)
(27/11/17) Updated (All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of iteration and iterative processes. It begins with a quick stop clock starter to review skills they should already know and will need to use throughout the lesson. The it leads to a discussion about what iteration is using real life concepts such as painting a door. This leads into a slide and discussion on the maths definition of what iterative processes are. Non calculator section Students shouldn't use a calculator/ ans button for these first questions so they can grasp the concept of iteration by physically doing substituting the previous answer in. 1) There are two basic iteration examples, fully animated, for students to follow through with yourself. 2) This the leads to 3 questions for the students to try for them selves. Calculator section Finding x1, x2 and x3 1) Explanation of where to find the ans button on your calculator and how it works. It's useful to get the students to do it on their calculators along with the PowerPoint. 2) 2 examples of iterative process questions that require a calculate. 3) 5 Multiple Choice Questions. Estimating a solution 1) 2 fully animated examples on estimating a solution to a required number of decimal places. 2) 2 questions for the students to try themselves. Rearranging to make an iterative formula 1) 3 different example rearrangements of the same formula 2) Odd one out. Students need to spot which iterative formula isn't a rearrangement of the equation. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use, however these questions are quite wordy and it may be worth while to print the slide off as a worksheet. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation with exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have. Miss B

UPDATED 7th September 2017 (All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of handling identities and equating coefficients. It starts with 6 quick fire questions on expanding and simplifying single and double brackets and one complete the square question. Then the definitions of an equation and identity are there for discussion. This leads to students having to identify the equations and identities. Following this is two examples of show that this is an identity. One single bracket and one double bracket. Then there is an interactive pairing activity where students need to come to the board and select two cards. If they could be an identity leave them turned over, if not turn them back over and start again. (Snap) Following this is two examples of equating coefficients. One single bracket and one double bracket. Leading into a tick or trash activity where misconceptions can be discussed.

(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of expanding single brackets. It begins with a stopwatch starter where students need to to answer three simplifying algebraic expression questions. This then leads to discussion over methods you could use to answer numerical questions such as 3(5-2). I'm very much aware that there are 3 different common approaches to teaching expanding brackets. I've included 4 examples for each of the following methods (12 different examples). I know the method I teach sometimes varies on the class I am teaching. 1) Algebra tiles - Explanation slides of how to multiply with algebra tiles, 4 progressively harder expanding bracket examples with algebra tiles and 4 mini whiteboard questions for the students to do themselves with algebra tile solutions. 2) Grid Method - 4 progressively harder examples of expanding brackets using the grid method, 5 mini white board questions 3)Claw/Arrow method - 4 progressively harder examples of expanding brackets using claw method and the same 5 mini white board questions as the grid method. This then leads to three tick or trash questions, where the students need to select which person has answered the question correctly and discuss what the misconception of the other person was. There is then a matching quiz interactive activity where students can come to the board, selected two cards and see if they are a pair. If they are leave them turned over, if not click the cards again to turn them back over. The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder.

Add and Subtract Negative Numbers - Directed Numbers (Whole Lesson with Answers)

(0)
(All answers are provided) I've designed this Lesson to allow students to explore adding and subtracting negative numbers building up from the basic pictorial through the use of counters and coming to identifying quicker methods/ rules. It begins with a look a counters and there meaning and different ways of representing numbers and a mini whiteboard activity. This then leads to 4 basic examples of questions such as -2 + 3, followed by four questions for students to try. Answers are given with full pictorial and written solutions here. This then leads to 4 examples of questions such as -2 - -3, again followed by four questions for the students to try. Answers are given with full pictorial and written solutions here. This leads to a class discussion on quicker methods now that they why is understood. Student have the pictorial to fall back on if they get stuck. There is a pointless quiz activity with two rounds which can be used to help stop misconceptions before the main differentiated activity. (Teacher Guidance notes are within the slides for this activity, however it's pretty straight forward if you have seen the TV show.) The resource then in includes a differentiated focused activity which progressively gets harder. This gives students a chance to master and enhance their skills. It includes 5 separate sections a skill 1, 2 & 3 and a stretch 1 & 2. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use. Then to finish there is an application on how this could be seen in an exam situation including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have. Miss B Bonus Materials There is an extra challenge slide of an additions grid of negative numbers. There is also a mixed challenge activity to be used with students once they have learnt how to multiply and divide negative numbers also. I have attached printable versions of the grid I use throughout the slides. I often laminate them for the students to do the examples with me in lessons)

Quiz - Order of Operations BIDMAS / BODMAS - 2 Team Challenge

(0)
This is a 10 question quiz and 1 tie breaker question. The questions are all based around order of operations (BIDMAS / BODMAS) and start simple with no brackets, then with brackets and then insert the brackets. Every slide has two questions on, one for team 1 and another for team 2. Each question has 3 possible answers. Click the answer the team has chosen for it to highlight green if correct or red if incorrect. This allows you to open the question up to the other team to steal the point if you wish. I've design it so both teams have similar questions with different numbers at the same time to help prevent any students from being sat there not doing anything. I often ask all students to write their answer for their teams question on a whiteboard and take the majority answer from the team. This again means every student is participating. Each slide also has a star timer at the top. Each star represents 10 seconds and they gradually disappear. I hope you enjoy the quiz Miss B
