Factorising quadratics

(2)
Covers identifying products and sums, factorising when coefficient of x^2 is 1, when it is more than 1 and difference of 2 squares. Full examples and solutions given to all questions. Useful for KS3 &KS4 credit to both DannytheRef and Pixi Maths whose presentations I have merged to make this. please leave feedback
Algebraic Sequences and series
commutercommuter

Algebraic Sequences and series

(6)
Aimed at stronger pupils on GCSE/IGCSE and pupils starting year 12. Probably enough content for 2 lessons. covers arithmetic means, nth terms, recursive and explicit terms Also delves into sum of an arithmetic series (without referring to sigma, I intend to bring that in after geometric series have been done) all answers are provided hope you enjoy , please leave feedback for more of my resources check out the shop https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/commuter (have amended an error on this and added an extra discussion point)
Pythagoras theorem

Pythagoras theorem

(0)
Pythagoras theorem lesson with multiple activities. lesson consists of how the theorem is known, how to find the hypotenuse and how to find the shorter sides. Each section broken down with examples and follow up work. Challenge questions include linking the area of the triangles. Activities include 2 worksheets with answers built into the powerpoint. Wordsearch of the key words and a mixed question type treasure hunt that would cater to paired work well. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it. Please leave feedback. If you like it check out https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/commuter for more have now added some further challenging questions

Aimed at KS4 suitable for KS5 IB SL questions powerpoint on solving simultaneous equations which have a quadratic as one of the equations. fully worked examples, questions with answers included. Discussion points built into presentation hope you enjoy please leave feedback
Simultaneous equations
commutercommuter

Simultaneous equations

(0)
Covering solving simultaneous linear equations using elimination and substitution methods. Also activities covering quadratic simultaneous equations. All the resources you will need to cover this topic. Aimed at KS3 and 4 (the quadratics would also work for IB SL students). Each presentation includes fully worked examples and questions with all answers provided. Opportunities for discussions and paired/group work. Extra activities include 2 jigsaws, 4 loop activities (also ideal as treasure hunt style activities) and a quiz built around identifying the solutions from a multiple choice. Please leave feedback hope you find my work useful.

Tour de France relay
commutercommuter

Tour de France relay

(0)
Great for and end of term or return to school activity In teams of 2 or 3 a fun relay with challenging questions allowing the pupils to still be pushed and review several topics at the same time. Takes 50 minutes on average to complete so a full lesson can be had from this questions all relate to the tour de france and cover probability, speed/distance/time, ratio averages answers included, pupils always enjoy the element of competition (easy to adapt, I allow 2 marks per question. I get the pupils to pick 2 numbers before the start, have one worth 10 marks and only 1 attempt, the other loses all previous correct marks if they get it wrong on their only attempt at it) hope you enjoy it please leave feedback
Similar Shapes up to and including Area and Volumes
commutercommuter

Similar Shapes up to and including Area and Volumes

(0)
Whole topic covered on similar shapes Starts with lengths and scale factors moves on to links between scale factors for length area and perimeter. The ppt can be used as either a single lesson or as two lessons as more than enough work in there for it. Several discussion tasks built into the powerpoint Worked examples, definitions worksheets (with full answers) and 2 treasure hunts which can run parallel to avoid having people follow each other as easily. Hope you enjoy please leave feedback if you like the lesson have a look at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/commuter for more
