Powers of 10 and standard form

(0)
Write 10, 100, 1000 etc as powers of ten Write positive integers in the form A x 10n Investigate negative powers of ten Write decimals in the form A x 10n With a place value table that helps with writing in standard form. I have used resources from WR Maths as well as my own input.

Radius diameter and drawing a circle

(0)
Good intro lesson for circles. Introducing the concepts of radius and diameter and allowing them to see other things such as chords and segments. Lesson also goes through how to draw a circle using a compass.
Inverse functions Tarsia Puzzle

Inverse functions Tarsia Puzzle

(0)
An activity to consolidate inverse functions work after students have learned about them. Includes variation on similar functions so the answers are not obvious to the students.
Inverse Functions

Inverse Functions

(0)
Inverse function lesson used during a NQT observation to a higher year 10 group. Uses function machines to help with the concept of ‘going backwards’ before moving to an algebraic method got replacing f(x) with y and rearranging. Works great with the inverse function tarsia I have also created.

The laws of addition and subtraction.

(0)
This lesson looks at the commutative and associative laws of addition, different strategies of how to complete additions and subtraction efficiently (partitioning, compensating etc.) as well as fact families for addition and subtraction. Uses resources from WR maths as well as my own input.

3D co-ordinates

(0)
Two 3D co-ordinate lessons taught to middle set year 10 students. The first build up slowly and includes a powerpoint I found that illustrates 3D co-ordinates with animations effectively. Worksheets embedded. Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks
Rearranging and solving equations

Rearranging and solving equations

6 Resources
This bundle contains an introduction for rearranging and solving linear equations before moving onto solving equations with brackets, fractions, decimals and indices. Perfect for a mid set year 10 class or year 11 revision!
Significant figures
tomprotheroe92tomprotheroe92

Significant figures

(0)
Full lesson on significant figures. We look at why we use significant figures in real life situations (newspapers) and how we would round to 1/2/3 sf.
Intro to rearranging equations

Intro to rearranging equations

(0)
Introduction to rearranging formulae. Two notebooks. Rearranging formulae - intro for low ability, will then be able to move to the second notebook Rearranging formulae 2 - can be used as an intro for a higher ability group.
Intro to solving equations
tomprotheroe92tomprotheroe92

Intro to solving equations

(0)
Introduction to solving equations with one and two step equations being used. Builds up slowly and can be used to clear up misconceptions. Used with a mid-ability year 10 class all taking foundation. Any feedback apprieciated! Thanks!
