Complete the steps in the table to get from ax2+bx+c=0 to the quadratic formula. Or, cut out the steps and ask students to arrange them in the correct order. Answers on page 1, empty table on page 2, the peices in a random order on page 3. PDF here
A set of questions taken from the AQA Additional Maths specimen paper. A great GCSE A/A* extension or As introduction. PDF here. Ask pupils to order by difficulty using this template and then attempt all that they can. Lesson plan.
A set of 26 A-Grade algebra questions on simplifying, rearranging and solving. Pupils match up questions to answers and then use as support, or just for checking, to solve questions. PDF here. A set of 'rich questions' to go with this activity.
Resources to test deep understanding of differentiation to solve problems, factor theorem for drawing polynomials and coordinate geometry. This activity composed the key part of a Yr11OFSTED OUTSTANDING lesson.
Matchup the equation, differential, specific coordinate, gradient at specific points, stationary points and tangent. Includes two versions; one easier, one harder. Geogebra file used (edit the equation to fit). Images of graphs.
Kinesthetic activity for students. PDF here. Print out the graphs onto A4 paper, then print the final 6 slides onto accetate and cut up. Pupils use the accetates to show the required graph transformations. Smaller print version, this one prints all the original graphs onto 2 A4 sides, another page on tracing paper for the graphs. PDF of this file here.
Four different introductions to the binomial expansion. Spread around class, complete, and then present to other students. An activity to really reinforce the imprortance of the binomial expansion across several areas of Mathematics. PDF here.
All of the required formulae for the old AQA Core 2 module on a single side of A4. Arranged into those formula that must be remembered and those that are, or were, given in the formula book. Tested and much appreciated by my sixth form class!
Notes on how exam marks are typically awarded for Integration by Substitution, Integration by Parts and Differential Equation questions. Includes a writing frame, practice of several questions and answers (questions taken from the AQA syllabus).
A set each of chain rule, product rule and quotient rule questions. Each set including easy, medium and hard questions (the rows) and polynomial, trigonometrical and exponential questions (the columns). My Yr13 students (single and further maths) really enjoyed recapping their knowledge with this task!
Here's a whole bunch of integration questions for you to decide how to integrate. These cover all methods including by substitution, by parts, by partial fractions etc. Some interesting limits for you to work your way through too. There is some structure to the layout of the questions on this document but we'll leave you to work out what that structure is! Includes answers. As pdf here.
A template for students to create their own chain, product, quotient questions where chain, product or quotient rule is used within the whole question also of the format, chain, product, quotient. PDF here.
Three sets, each of three matchup puzzles, for pupils to practice chain rule, product rule and quotient rule. Answers included together with blank templates for pupils to create their own puzzles. PDFs here, here and here.
Prove the trigonometric identities by matching up the peices (steps) in the correct order. Supports students with this topic by providing the steps , and avoiding alebraic mistakes that confuse the key learning outcomes, whilst challenging them to understand the order and making connections between each step. PDF here
Notes on the key aspects of vectors that students ought to know and bring with them from GCSE. Three pages, all you need, one lesson. Its all here. PDF here. The Autograph file 1 and Autograph files 2 that were used to make it 'dynamic'.
