Changing The Subject Of A Formula

Changing The Subject Of A Formula

Full lesson with most answers included. Adapted some of Manoj Mistry's resources with table matching activity of my own and literacy-based plenary with scaffolding. Aimed for Level 6 but can be adapted up or downwards (have a similar Level 5 version). My first upload - comments welcome :)

iGCSE Booklet - Equations of Lines, Quadratics, Cubics, Reciprocals, Trigonometric Graphs

iGCSE Booklet - Equations of Lines, Quadratics, Cubics, Reciprocals, Trigonometric Graphs

A 61 slide Powerpoint Presentation based on graphical representations of functions. Starts with gradients of straight lines, y=mx + c, then plotting and solving quadratics by using intersections of points, properties of quadratics, key features of quadratics (using completing the square to find turning points), followed by cubic, reciprocals, circles and trigonometric graphs. Exercises (from GCSE Rayner & CorbettMaths) and opportunities for starters embedded throughout. The Powerpoint can be used as a workbook with some modification, success criteria given clearly on each slide. If you like this resource, please review and I will endeavour to provide more iGCSE material.

A-Level IB - Differentiation from 1st Principles (with exercises)

A-Level IB - Differentiation from 1st Principles (with exercises)

A great introduction to the tricky concept of differentiation. Fully animated graphical display of how we use tangents to curves to differentiate a function, with regular examples for the teacher to explain key concepts. Solomon Worksheet Questions and Answers provided and embedded throughout the Powerpoint. If you like these resource, please review so I can see if there would be interest for my other A-Level / IB resources.

iGCSE Booklet - Fraction, Decimal & Percentage Calculations

iGCSE Booklet - Fraction, Decimal & Percentage Calculations

A massive 119 slide Powerpoint with explanations, examples and exercises on the following topics: Expressing a number in Tenths, Hundredths and vice versa Comparing decimals, using decimal number lines Rounding to decimal places Ordering decimals Multiplying and dividing by decimals FInding the best value product by using the unitary method Fractions of shapes, finding equivalent fractions Simplifying fractions Converting between improper fractions and mixed numbers. Fractions of amounts Adding and subtracting fractions (with and without the same denominator) Multiplying and dividing fractions (with and without the same denominator) Four operations with improper fractions and mixed numbers Converting recurring decimals to fractions Converting between fractions, decimals and percentages (including worded questions) FInding a percentage of an amount Increase or decrease by a percentage (including problem solving). Increase or decrease by a percentage using a multiplier Work out simple or compound interest of an amount of money. Work out the depreciation of an asset. Calculate the percentage profit / loss. Work out reverse percentage change. This was designed for new students from abroad coming into Year 10 (i.e. be comprehensive), but a total set of resources that would probably save a month of planning.
