Triple Brackets - Extension questions

(0)
This collection of five worksheets ( complete with answers and working out ) covers the basics of multiplying out triple brackets then moves on to using the results in different situations. Students are eased into the topic with a little revision of the multiplying out that they will already have mastered then there is plenty of practise with progressively harder examples of multiplying out triple brackets including those with repeated factors. The extension sheets include proofs and finding the difference between two expressions ( a challenge in itself to remember to do x³ +3 x² + 3x + 1 )- ( x³ - 3x² + x - 1 ) carefully ! ). Geometric problems involving cube diagrams to illustrate the expansion of ( a + b )³ will provide useful extension work for the brightest GCSE students. Evaluate 1.1³ to show how powers of numbers can be found using expansions. The sheets could be used independently by your brightest y9s and above as they include instructions.

Puzzles about the MEAN

Puzzles about the MEAN

(2)
Three pairs of worksheets with answers that are designed to help students understand the use of the mean as an average when data is added or removed from the calculation. e.g. the mean weight of 5 people is 70 kg. Another person joins the group and the mean is now 71kg. How much did the sixth person weigh. A lot of students find it hard to see that if you know the mean of a set of numbers and how many numbers there are then you can find the TOTAL of all the numbers. These questions will make them think about how they can use this idea. GCSE DfE references S4, N2 For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop
