Algebra Codebreaker Bundle - December 2017

Algebra Codebreaker Bundle - December 2017

A bunch of codebreakers (the usual terrible joke) having solved a load of algebra problems involving functions, arithmetic sequences, inequalities, substitution and other algebra topics. These can be used as a starter or plenary or even part of a main task in a lesson.

Expanding, Factorising and Solving Quadratics

Expanding, Factorising and Solving Quadratics

This is designed to take the students from simple expanding a bracket to simple factorising to multiplying out two brackets to factorising quadratics to simplifying algebraic fractions to solving quadratics by completing the square to solving quadratics using the quadratic formula and simultaneous equations involving quadratics. There are questions for each as well as examples and explanations. Between each section there is a 'Where are you now?' section to show progress.

Erica's Errors - AS/A Level Maths (Year 1) Bundle

Erica's Errors - AS/A Level Maths (Year 1) Bundle

Erica makes mistakes; lots of mistakes. You have her homework on every topic covered in the first year of her A level mathematics course where she consistently makes mistakes. Your job, or more accurately, the students in your classes' job is to correct Erica's errors and explain where she's gone wrong so that she doesn't make the same mistakes again. These have gone down well in my classes and really encourage discussion about the mathematics and should embed a deeper understanding.

Christmas Codebreakers

Christmas Codebreakers

Three codebreakers ranging from easy to difficult as you go through them, but all with a Christmas joke (made up by me, so I apologise now) and with all the questions being Christmas-y too. All sorts of topics covered. Hopefully errors corrected (I found one on each sheet!).

Erica's Errors - A Level (Year 2) Bundle

Erica's Errors - A Level (Year 2) Bundle

Erica is struggling with many aspects of the A level mathematics course and needs help from your students. What you have here is 17of her homeworks, each with mistakes in solutions which your students need to find, correct and explain where Erica has gone wrong. These are purely designed to generate discussion and to allow students to demonstrate their understanding, whilst also allowing them to show their own methods of silving problems. These are all based upon the new A level curriculum.

Clumsy Clive Geometry and Data Bundle

Clumsy Clive Geometry and Data Bundle

These are all available for free individually but if you don't have the time then this is for you. Clive makes common mistakes, mistakes you'll have seen in class. Your students need to find the mistakes, correct them and explain where Clive has gone wrong so that he doesn't do the same thing again. These activities are designed to create discussion in class and can be used to assess understanding.
