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

(0)
(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

BIDMAS / BODMAS - Order of Operations

(1)
I've designed this resource to allow students to explore basic connections of number and the reasoning why. For example is 3+2-1 the same as 2-1+3. This then leads into an explanation of what BIDMAS is and includes model examples which go through the process step by step. Afterwards there is a quick true or false activity with the answers, you could do this as a mini whiteboard activity, class discussion, group task or silent focus. I personally use this with whiteboards and hammer out the misconceptions. It is a good tool in getting the students to practise providing explinations and reasons verbally for their answers. 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 4 separate sections a skill 1 & 2 and a stretch 1 & 2. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use.

Identities and Equating Coefficients: Full lesson, answers, quizzes, differentiated & exam questions

(0)
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. 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.

Substitution Lesson - Including Quizzes, Worksheet and Model Answers on Substituting .

Updated 22nd September 2017 (All answers are provided) I've designed this resource to allow students to start to understand substitution from the basics upwards. It begins with a stopwatch starter asking students to simplify basic algebraic expressions. This leads to a restaurant menu activity and a class discussion about how they intrinsically know how to substitute to find the total cost. I've found it's important to look at the language of mathematics to help students understanding. I find a perfect activity for this topic is connections, here students have to make links related to substitution and the words on the page, I've provided an example and then some possible answers for this. This means moving forward I can use mathematical language, such as variable, and be sure the students understand it's meaning. Afterwards there is a quick true or false activity with the answers, you could do this as a mini whiteboard activity, class discussion, group task or silent focus. I personally use this with whiteboards and hammer out the misconceptions. It is a good tool in getting the students to practise providing explanations and reasons verbally for their answers. I've then modelled 4 different examples of varying ability and these appear step by step and include examples with negative numbers. There is then a catchphrase quiz activity which I find useful to hammer out any misconceptions the students may have. (The answers or on the next slide for this, some teachers may find it useful to jot these down or print that slide before completing the interactive activity). The catchphrase is bad hair day. 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 4 separate sections a skill 1 & 2 and a stretch 1 & 2. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use.

Expanding Double Brackets Full lesson & Answers, Quizzes, Differentiated Worksheet & Exam Questions

(0)
(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of expanding double brackets. It begins with a stopwatch starter where students need to to answer four simplifying and expanding algebraic expression questions. This then leads to discussion over methods you could use to answer numerical questions such as (2+3)(1+2). Then there is a product and sum activity. (3 questions where students need to find the product and sum and 3 questions where students have to work backwards from being given the product and sum) I'm very much aware that there are several different common approaches to teaching expanding brackets. I've included examples for each of the following methods. I know the method I teach sometimes varies on the class I am teaching. Feel free to swap the order and delete the examples you don't want, I felt it was important to give options though. Form x^2+bx+c 1) Algebra tiles - Explanation slides of how to multiply with algebra tiles, 3 progressively harder expanding bracket examples with algebra tiles and 5 mini whiteboard questions with both written and algebra tile solutions. (These 5 whiteboard questions can be used even if not teaching with algebra tile approach) 2) Grid Method - 3 progressively harder examples 3)FOIL/Half moon - 3 progressively harder examples 4 questions for students to try in book. Form ax^2+bx+c 1) Algebra tiles - 2 progressively harder expanding bracket examples with algebra tiles and 2 mini whiteboard questions with both written and algebra tile solutions. (These whiteboard questions can be used even if not teaching with algebra tile approach) 2) Grid Method - 2 progressively harder examples 3)FOIL/Half moon - 2 progressively harder examples 4 questions for students to try in book. This then leads to two 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 n interactive wheel of fortune quizzing activity where students can come to the board. Spin the wheel, click the section it lands on, answer the question and total their points. 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 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 with 2 exam style questions including answers. I hope you find this resource as useful as my students have.

Simplifying Algebraic Expressions by Collecting Like Terms - Lesson differentiated, Quizzes & Exam Q

(0)
(All answers are provided) I've designed this lesson to build up students knowledge of simplifying algebraic expressions by collecting like terms. It begins with a stock take scenario after a robbery and students having to find an expression for the value of missing items to give to the police. This is built up slowly with having to categorise the items not taken, think about quicker ways they could do this and then look at the difference between two stock takes of the items. This then leads into a discussion of the definitions a variable, term and expression. Leading to a discussion opportunity as to whether some expressions displayed on the board could be written differently. There is then a true false activity to discuss and hammer out algebraic notation misconceptions. Leading to 8 different examples of increasing difficulty fully modelled (Delete as appropriate for the class level) After each pair of examples there are two miniature whiteboard questions (16 mini white board questions in total) This then leads to an interactive board game where the students have to come to the board or work in teams to select the expressions which simplify to make a certain expression. There is then a tarsia activity attached. 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 and a stretch 1 and 2. These are all displayed on the same slide for ease of use.
