Equations with Brackets

(1)
9 worksheets containing linear equations where brackets need to be multiplied out as the first step. The sheets get progressively harder for extra practice or revision.

Students are asked to check their answers for the first worksheets by putting the solution into both sides of the original equation to make sure it works out the same. The answers and working out are included. GCSE from 2017 references A17, A4, A3, A2, A1, N3, N2 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop

CIRCLES - Introduction

(2)
This colourful powerpoint uses animations and photographs to introduce or revise the vocabulary needed for working with circles e.g. radius, diameter, circumference, centre, circular, semicircle. There is also an accompanying worksheet. Slides require students to draw circles with given dimensions and perform calculations based on circles fitting inside other shapes and vice versa. The images and animations can also be used to revise area calculations, metric unit conversions, symmetry ( using photographs of car badges for instance ) and locus work. The hardest problem requires a knowledge of Pythagoras to solve it. The slides have notes and suggestions accompanying them. See my other resource ‘Circles - vocabulary’ which follows on from this one to introduce chords, sectors, segments, arcs and tangents.

The Equation of a Circle x² + y² = r²

(1)
These ten worksheets guide students through the origin of the x² + y² = r² equation of a circle and use a variety of problems to reinforce their understanding of the equation and its uses. Tangents are also introduced as are the methods for finding points of intersection between lines and circles. There are plenty of reminders for solving simple quadratic equations like x² = 16 and also simultaneous equations where one equation is not linear. Written for the GCSE 9-1 specs but the material is also useful for A-level C2 students. Some of the sheets are similar so one can be done in class and the other used for reinforcement. There are problem sheets to extend the most students. As ever, the aim with SKILLSHEETS is to encourage learners to think about what they are doing and use diagrams to help them understand the topic.

Venn Diagrams - Conditional Probability

(0)
This resource comprises 7 worksheets with answers to give students confidence in dealing with sets. It is suitable for higher level GCSE students and those starting A-level statistics. There are some tough word problems that require resilience and possibly some algebra to solve. Three of the sheets focus more on conditional probabilities - the ‘given that’ type of questions that children often struggle with. The questions are worded in different ways to help learners see how sometimes the probability is being calculated out of members from a subset of the universal set. To provide revision on some basic shape properties there are two sheets about sorting triangles and quadrilaterals according to their properties.

Algebra and Shapes. Perimeter and Area Formulas

(1)
This power point can be used very flexibly to teach, practise or revise various algebraic processes whilst also reminding students about the basic properties of shapes. The slides show a wide variety of shapes. For each shape students can create an expression or formula for its perimeter ( and also for the area for many of the shapes ). In doing this they can practise collecting like terms, using brackets in expressions ( and multiplying them out ). The formulas created can then be used to substitute numbers in or for rearranging work. There are two worksheets ( with answers ) to go with the powerpoint which concentrate on creating expressions for perimeters.

Percentage Grids

(0)
This collection of 14 worksheets will help students to visualise the relationships between percentages, decimals and fractions better by shading diagrams to represent particular percentages. There is progression from the simple pages where percentages are introduced as fractions ‘out of 100’ to including the decimal equivalent and eventually relating fifths and fractions like 13/25 to percentages. The sheets are useful for short bursts of revision and reinforcement or extension. They are suitable for younger students meeting percentages for the first time and for older children who need reminders and visual reminders of why 1/4 = 25%. There is plenty of repetition so one sheet could be done in class and the paired version used for homework. DfE reference for GCSE 9-1 R9, R3, N2, N10 Please review this resource.
