Algebraic Problems involving Angles

Algebraic Problems involving Angles

This lesson and worksheets looks at algebraic problems which involve constructing equations based on the knowledge of either angles in a triangle angles in a quadrilateral ands associated with parallel lines angles in a parallelogram angles associated with circle theorems. There are two worksheets to backup the worked examples. The second worksheet is similar to the first just in case you need a review and want student to "have another go" Solutions are provided.

Dividing into a given ratio GCSE revision

Dividing into a given ratio GCSE revision

Here are two revision lessons I have used throughout the year with foundation students. The lessons consist of worked examples followed by questions for the students to answer. The PowerPoint is broken down so that any foundation student can access the material.

GCSE Revision: Simultaneous equations

GCSE Revision: Simultaneous equations

This revision lesson looks at solving simultaneous equations through the process of elimination. As with the other revision lessons, the lesson consists of a number of worked examples with questions for students to answer embedded throughout the lesson. Duration is approximately two hours.

Decimal, Fraction & percentage conversions

Decimal, Fraction & percentage conversions

This revision lesson reminds students how we can convert decimals into either fractions or percentages. Fractions into decimals or percentages and percentages into decimals or fractions. These revision lessons work with the teacher going through a couple of examples, which I get the students to copy down into their books, so that they have something to refer back to later. Then the students answer a number of questions to ensure they understand the work. The I move to the next slide and do much the same. I find that this has really helped with the low ability students moving their learning form short term to long term.

Properties of a velocity time graph revision

Properties of a velocity time graph revision

This revision lesson looks at revising with students the understanding that area under a curve represents distance travelled and the gradient of a tangent represents acceleration when looking at a velocity time graph. The revision lessons is a mixture of worked examples and questions for the students to attempt before reviewing at the board.

Introduction to Distance, Speed, Time

Introduction to Distance, Speed, Time

This lesson is aimed at introducing students to the three formula involving Distance, Speed and Time. There are plenty of worked examples and a worksheet to accompany the lesson.

Frequency Polygon & Cumulative Frequency Revision

Frequency Polygon & Cumulative Frequency Revision

This revision lesson reminds students how to draw both Frequency polygons and cumulative frequency curves. This is done through both worked examples and a few for them to have a go at before checking answers at the board. The lesson also reminds students how the median and Interquartile range are found from the cumulative frequency curve.

Mathematics GCSE weekly revision 2

Mathematics GCSE weekly revision 2

These 5 sheets of 9 questions per sheet can be given to students to complete in class or as a piece of work for home. The sheets are designed to give students regular practice at questions they often forget. Topics included are: Area of a trapezium Solving equations finding the nth term of a sequence Constructing an equation Prime factors Volume of a cylinder Decimal multiplication Factorising Removal of brackets Pie charts Transformations

Mathematics GCSE Revision questions grades 3-5

Mathematics GCSE Revision questions grades 3-5

These 17 sheets of 9 questions per sheet can be given to students to complete in class or as a piece of work for home. The sheets are designed to give students regular practice at questions they often forget. Topics included are: Area of a regular shape Simplifying algebraic expressions Solving simple equations removal of brackets Finding the percentage of a quantity Expressing as a percentage Compound interest Fractions (add, multiply, divide) Probability of a single event Probability when a spinner is spun twice Dividing into a given ratio Conversion of metric units Distance, Speed, Time Density, Mass, Volume

GCSE Higher level Algebra Revision

GCSE Higher level Algebra Revision

This revision powerpoint looks at worked examples for the topics of Completing the square and solving quadratics inequalities. The second revision lesson looks at iterative formulae and quadratic sequences. The idea is that the member of staff works through 2 or 3 examples before the student attempts one question at a time. The review of the question then reinforces the students understanding of the topics.

GCSE Algebra: Drawing straight line graph revision

GCSE Algebra: Drawing straight line graph revision

This Revision lesson reminds students how we draw graph from an equation in the form y=mx+c. Firstly the member of staff goes through two worked examples before the students tackle one or two on their own before checking the solution at the board. The examples then get more complicated. This revision lesson is aimed at Foundation students.

Mathematics Easter egg hunt

Mathematics Easter egg hunt

A series of Mathematics games that can be played in the classroom or even placed around the school play ground for break and lunchtime activities. Each game consists of twelve questions written onto twelve pictured easter eggs. The idea is that the students know the starting card but initially have no idea of the last card. The aim of the game is to answer the questions in the correct order thereby revealing a code. The student can then submit the correct code to the teacher and maybe receive a reward of some kind! The games consist of : Addition Addition & Subtraction Multiplication Long Multiplication Fractions of a quantity Percentages of a quantity Solving algebraic equations

Types of Solids

Types of Solids

There are approximately four lessons of work here which include the knowledge of Prisms, Pyramids and Spheres. I tend to get the students to copy the examples into their books. Then when they start the worksheet they have something to look back at for guidance.

Probability Tree revision lesson

Probability Tree revision lesson

This revision is pitched mainly at foundation students, however it is also ideal for higher level students. Through worked examples the students revise the fact of multiplying "branches" together in order to obtain an outcome for two event. Further examples look at when there are more than two possible outcomes which would imply we add the solutions together. Nicely broken up for a student who is probably struggling with the grade 5 work. There are also several questions for the students to attempt in-between the examples. Answers are provided.

Revision starters for GCSE topics.

Revision starters for GCSE topics.

Here I have created a group of starter questions for my foundation students to tackle at the beginning of the lesson. This powerpoint includes questions on fractions into decimals sequences the nth term solving simple equations dividing into a given ratio simplifying expressions factorising multiplying decimals

Percentages

Percentages

This spreadsheet will generate infinite worksheets for percentage questions. The spreadsheet will also provide the answers. Once the sheet is generated print the sheet and print the answers. Then change the worksheet number to 2 or 3, extra and watch a completely new worksheet get generated. Alternatively the spreadsheet can be projected onto the board and students answer from the board. Then at an appropriate time the answers can be shown by changing the column hiding the answers back to black font.

Gradient of a line and y intercept

Gradient of a line and y intercept

This lesson is used in lower school to introduce students to the gradient of a straight line by calculation. The lesson then looks at the general equation of the line. Acknowledging that m stands for the gradient and c the y intercept. There is a worksheet attached to this lesson which can be used in class or as a piece of homework. Answers are included.
