Quadratics Practice 2016
Six questions, of progressive difficulty, each on 'complete the square then solve', 'factorise then solve', 'quadratic formula to solve'. PDF here.
















Four Circles
Not much info on this diagram but can you find the equation of the small blue circle? Includes Answers. PDF here.
























Quadratic Formula Synthesis
Complete the steps in the table to get from ax^{2}+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




Max Box
What's the biggest area you can contain with x cm of string? Whats the biggest volume you can contain with an A4 sheet of paper? Not as easy as it seems! Our answers and Autograph file used.












A Level Formulae
A lovely spider diagram jpeg noting all the useful formulas required for A Level Mathematics. Print out, explore, learn.




Key Pairs
Interactive match up pairs starter activity for key elements of A level maths basics, great for revision.




































Factorising Polynomials
Use combinations of the factors given to make the polynomials. An easier and harder version with answers included for both. Pdf here.
















Graph Transformations
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.




Compound Transformations
Students use the equations given, together with some of thier own creation, to match to the written transformations. Extension questions too on order of transformations.




Trigonometry Recap
Four questions based on each of; Pythagoras, standard rightangled trig, sine rule, cosine rule and sine rule for area. Answers included. PDF here.








APs & GPs
Notes on A Level APs & GPs (Arithmetic Progressions & Geometric Progressions). PDF here








Series Questions
Questions and extensions based on an A level exam question involving sums of both arithmetic and geometric series. Includes answers. PDF here.








Introducing Exponentials
A few quick starter questions on solving exponential and log equations as well as differentiating and integrating them. Includes Answers. PDF here.




Binomial Activity
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.




Binomial Expansions
A progression of binomial expansions to take students from the very straightforward (x+1)^{3} to (32x)^{5} in easy steps.




Binomial Expansion Concept Questions
A couple of questions to highlight finding all terms vs using binomial formula to find just one term. Contains an easier and harder question, with answers.




Making Progress Revision Notes
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!
