9-1 Efficient Calculator Use (Worksheets)

9-1 Efficient Calculator Use (Worksheets)

UPDATED!! New extra content This resource has been updated March 18 and now includes six worksheets covering a range of questions on topics which can be completed on a scientific calculator efficiently. Worksheet 1, 1a and 1b covers six topics (powers/roots, place value, remainders, primes, fractions and percentages). Worksheet 2, 2a and 2b covers three overall topics but each progresses in challenge (use of formula, right angled triangles i.e. Pythagoras’ theorem and trigonometry, circles, arcs/sectors). Worksheet 1 and 2 are condensed, making them ideal for re-use (print and laminate) or displaying on the interactive whiteboard. Whereas 1a, 1b, 2a and 2b provide space for pupils calculations and final answers. I use these ones for homework or revision tasks. These worksheets complement our 9-1 Efficient Calculator Use Treasure Hunt resource.
