A classroom based verison of the addictive internet craze game of wordle! Formatted to highlight green for correct letters in correct place, orange correct letter wrong place etc. This version uses no repeat letters for formatting purposes! There are a bank of 8 in the folder but if you put any 5 letter word in then it is formatted so it will work. Any feedback please let me know. Please check out my other resources. Thanks
Solving simultaneous equations introduction - mastery style using bar models BUNDLE L1-5

Solving simultaneous equations introduction - mastery style using bar models BUNDLE L1-5

(0)
This is a series of lessons designed as a visual introduction to simultaneous equations. The bundle of lessons consists of four lessons and a mini assessment at the end. The lessons are structured as follows: Lesson 1 - Positive coefficients which are the same Lesson 2 - Negative and positive coefficients that re the same Lesson 3 - Different coefficients Lesson 4 - A summary with mixed questions and problem solving The lessons includes fully animated examples to make concepts clear, true/false tasks and looks to link in some decimals and fractions within the main tasks. The lesson has taken inspiration from a mastery style and starts off heavily focusing on using visual bar models to represent the simultaneous equations and later on looks at how we can write this algebraically. The bar models are used to make concepts clear to students but gradually removed and the links between the diagrams and algebraic methods are made explicit. There is a plenary review all of the topics covered. A mention must be given to Pixi Maths as there are two slides at the beginning of L1 which were excellent and borrowed from a Pixi Maths PPT. Hope this is useful, please leave a review if it is or any constructive criticism.

Expanding single brackets (Mastery Style) using algebra tiles

(1)
A lesson to introduce expanding single brackets. Algebra tiles are used to model expanding brackets, focusing on forming expressions at the start of the lesson. This would be a good introduction to algebra tiles. The lesson aims to reveal the structure behind expanding brackets and link to the fact that it is an area model. Do it now on collecting like terms Introdcution/recap to algebra tiles Writing expressions and how we can represent expressions using algbera tiles. Examples of modelling expanding brackets using algebra tiles Multiple choice question A 3 page scaffolded worksheet using a reflect, expect, check style like MrBartonMaths. (Attached as second document) Modelling of examples with negatives Fill in the gaps style activity Reasoning questions, explain the mistake, which one is correct etc. Review questions Feedback is welcome so I can improve these lessons thank you. Please check out my other lessons for a similar style. Check out my expanding brackets bundle or Following this there are lessons on: Expanding quadratics Expanding quadratics with a coefficient more than 1. Thank you

Cumulative Frequency and Box Plots exam questions
tomalley4tomalley4

Cumulative Frequency and Box Plots exam questions

(13)
Cumulative frequency and box plots exam questions scaffolded and differentiated. Two exam questions where students first have to plot the cumulative frequency graph, then interpret it by finding the median and interquartile range and then construct a box plot from this. I stole the format off someone else who uploaded questions for cumulative frequency and I really liked the format (Sorry I don't know who it was to give credit to). I then went on to compare box plots.

Expanding Quadratics (Double brackets) using algebra tiles (Mastery style) Positives only

(0)
A lesson to introduce expanding quadratics with a focus on positives only. The lesson uses algebra tiles to model the structure behind expanding quadratics before progressing into grid method. Ideally the students would have seen algebra tiles before, but there are some slides explaining and modelling these if they haven’t seen them before. Lesson structure: Do it now on expanding single brackets (with answers) Recap of algebra tiles Examples of modelling of expanding quadratics with algebra tiles, then leading into a more abstract grid method. I try, you try style examples Task for students to notice patterns and links between ‘b’ and ‘c’ (Credit to Miss Konstantine @GiftedHKO) - with answers Multiple choice AfL questions Student tasks (3 sheets) - Do it, secure it, deepen it, apply it - Answers provided Links to AO1, AO2 and AO3 Review of lesson with answers Please see my other lessons for lessons of a similar style. Expanding single brackets as a prerequisite lesson. Expanding quadratics coefficient more than 1 as a follow up. OR check out the bundle with 3 lessons on expanding brackets Thanks

A complete lesson, definitely enough to last 2-3 lessons. (43 slides) The lesson uses algebra tiles to represent factorising quadratics and completing the square. Previous use of algebra tiles is preferable but the way the lesson has been designed it is accessible if students might not be familiar with them, Representations is one of the 5 big ideas of mastery. The lesson includes: Do it now (Thanks to Mr CarterMaths) Recap of expanding using algebra tiles (Thanks Mathsbot for the representations) Demonstration of how to factorise quadratics using algebra tiles Tasks for students on factorising quadratics (including when coefficient of x squared is more than 1. Variation questions that lead into perfect squares (What do you notice? If I change this then what will happen?) Demonstration of how to complete the square, side by side with representation Prompt questions based on completing the square Tasks for students to practise completing the square using diagrams. Faded guidance task to support students writing this algebraically. All answers are provided throughout AO2 reasing questions and problem solving questions built in. Examples of completing the square with negative signs Tasks for students to practise questions with mixed signs. Review it now to recap learning Printable templates. Please check out my other resources, particularly the other ones on expanding brackets using algebra tiles which may be useful before this. Any feedback/mistakes please let me know so I can correct!
