GCSE Maths resources that are visual and step by step to help all learners

7 x Grade 5 - Grade 7 worded problems requiring students to decompose problem, form quadratic equation, factorise and solve it. They then have to choose a solution that matches the context of the question. Ideal for one 45-60 minute lesson with laddered activities to show progress or to allow students to pick questions they want to work on.
WANT TO PREPARE STUDENTS TO FACTORISE QUADRATICS? Why not take a look at this graded worksheet with examples on how to factorise quadratics using the box method.
WANT TO BUY A QUADRATICS BUNDLE AND SAVE MONEY AND TIME?
Take a look at this factorising quadratics, solving quadratic equations and completing the square bundle.

A step by step and visual resource for students to find LCM and HCF of two numbers using prime factor trees and Venn diagrams. Worksheet ladders students through key skills and helps them develop confidence in this area. Resources requires 30-45 minutes to deliver. Included is a teacher PPT and print ready PDFs (2 per page or 1 per page). Contents:
Teacher led example (with build)
2 x guided questions with steps removed each time to make it harder
2 x independent questions so students can replicate the whole process
1 x grade 5 question

Worded quadratic equation problems requiring students to decompose a problem, form a quadratic equation, factorise it and solve it. They then have to choose a solution that matches the context of the question. This is the FREE version of the popular (6k+ downloads and TES Picks) resource with a 2 x Grade 5 questions and solutions. The full resource can be found here with 7 x Grade 5 - Grade 7 questions. It’s ideal for a 45-60 minute lesson and students can select what they want to do.

This resource steps students to develop confidence in using use sin / cos / tan to find missing lengths and angles in right angled triangles. Scaffolded activities for the following:
Labelling the sides of a right angled triangle (opp, adj, hyp)
Investigation on how the ratio between two sides in a right angled triangle gives rise to sin / cos / tan values
Using FORMULA TRIANGLES to help with usage of SOH, CAH, TOA formula triangles
Finding MISSING LENGTHS in a right angled triangle (with a step by step guide and independence building questions)
Finding MISSING ANGLES in a right angled triangle (with a step by step guide and independence building questions)
Working through all resources would require 60-100 minutes.Potentially 2 lessons.
Answers are included for some of the activities and a sin/cos/tan value table for students who don’t have a scientific calculator.

Graded algebra worksheet which can be used as a revision lesson or assessment. Out of 100 marks with a simple feedback tool (WWW/EBI/Next Steps) for teacher / student evaluation. Indicates GCSE grades next to each topic to show progression. Covers the following topics:
GRADE 1: Simplifying expressions involving 1 variable
GRADE 2: Simplifying expressions involving 2 variables
GRADE 3: Substitution
GRADE 3: Expanding single brackets
GRADE 3: Factorise into single brackets
GRADE 4: Expanding and simplifying single brackets
GRADE 4: Expanding double brackets (quadratics)
GRADE 5: Factorising quadratics where coefficient of x squared = 1
GRADE 5: Changing the subject of a formula
GRADE 5: Difference of two squares
GRADE 7: Expanding triple brackets
GRADE 7: Factorising quadratics where coefficient of x squared not = 1
Feedback / edits welcome.

A laddered resource to help students find the nth term of a quadratic sequence in a visual and structured way. Resource includes teacher slides (with builds to explain the example), a worked solution and answers for the other questions. Includes a quadratic pattern challenge at the end. If you find any mistakes, please contact me using the address given in the teacher slides.

Bundle

3 visual resources to help Grade 5+ students to master factorising quadratics, solving quadratic equations and completing the square. All are stand alone worksheets usable to teach or for independent work.
RESOURCE 1: Factorising Quadratics - Guided worksheet using reverse grid method (GCSE Maths 9-1)
Step by step worksheet that shows students how to factorise quadratics using the box method. 2 resources included - one for Foundation and one for Higher. Higher worksheet covers quadratics where coefficient of x square = 1 and not = 1. Answers provided. Ideal for one lesson (30-45 minutes).
RESOURCE 2: Completing the square worksheet (visual method) / Quadratics
This is a visual step by step for students on how to complete the square. It includes examples and questions and helps students to access the how and why of completing the square as well as serving as a good introduction to the topic. This resource allows the teacher to then follow up with harder exam style questions (not included) knowing the basics are fully understood.
Included are examples and 2 questions each for the form for x^2 + bx and x^2 + bx + c.
RESOURCE 3: Solving Quadratic Equations - Worded and graded problem solving worksheet
5 x Grade 4 - Grade 7 worded problems requiring students to decompose a problem, form a quadratic equation, factorise it and solve it. They then have to choose a solution that matches the context of the question. Ideal for one lesson with laddered activities to show progress.

A visual and guided worksheet to help all ability learners grasp skills required to draw prime factor trees and use them to write numbers as a product of their prime factors in index form. Includes introduction to prime factor trees, 2 examples, 2 guided questions and 2 independent questions.
