One to Two Step Linear Equations Quiz Quiz Trade

One to Two Step Linear Equations Quiz Quiz Trade

Linear equations whole class activity which covers one and two step linear equations. This activity is excellent for differentiation as it allows for pupils to choose their own level of question and progress to the next difficulty at their own speed. It also encourages pupils to work together independently to solve their difficulties instead of instantly relying on the teacher. I have used it many times with my classes and it has proved to be a highly engaging resource for pupils. Instructions: - Print off the card sets on red, amber and green card respectively and place each set of cards somewhere in the room (keeping the same colours together). - All pupils start on a red card (one step addition/subtraction). - Pupils attempt the question on their card writing their answer and their initials on the back. - Pupils fetch another card and repeat. - If pupils pick a card that has been completed, they check the answer. If they come to the same answer they add their initials to the back. If they disagree they find the original pupil and discuss the question together. - Pupils move up to the next level of difficulty when they feel they are ready.

Equations from a Straight Line Worksheet

Equations from a Straight Line Worksheet

Double sided worksheet with 24 straight line graphs for pupils to write down the equation of. ranging from positive gradients to negative, and then fractional gradients. EDIT: I recently did a lesson on this topic with some higher set year 11's, so have produced a second, harder sheet that includes axes with different scales, forcing pupils to use "change in y/change in x" to find gradient instead of just going one across and counting squares. The new sheet is only one sided, but is more suitable for higher attaining pupils. Answers now included.

The regular version omits this so that you can do the working with your pupils on the board, allowing more questioning and AfL opportunities in class etc. I have uploaded both versions in both Powerpoint and Powerpoint 97-03 formats.

Decimal Division Bingo Activity

Decimal Division Bingo Activity

Engaging bingo activity based on decimal division. Bingo is always popular with pupils and I have regularly used them in my lessons - my students have often requested them, or that we do them again after the first go. Pupils can either draw a 3 x 3 grid in their book, or you can print off some of the blank grids at the start of the powerpoint. They then fill their grid with a selection of the bingo question answers. Can play for both a line and a full house to extend the game or keep pupils interested if their questions aren't coming up often. For replayability, the slide questions can be rearranged so they come up in a different order.
