EXPRESSIONS


Using A and B tiles to form and simplify expressions


Simplify expressions using an addition grid and finding perimeters of shapes


Simplify expressions by using journey analogy 

Writing formulas from words into algebra


Writing formulas and substituting into the formula 

Simplify expressions by addition grid. Write simple expressions using algebra  
Find values of x and y which make the expressions equal 

Create expressions which give the total value shown in the grid 

SOLVING EQUATIONS 

Use simple function machines to find inverses and convert from function machines into rules using letters  
Solve simple equations using the flowchart method.  
Match the question and the answer to these exponential equations  
Grids and axes in one and four quadrants. Pupils able to move the X onto the grid. Allows a variety of questions to be asked by the teacher.  
Converting between units and using information to draw graphs  
Coorindate grid for pupils to decide on their coordinate position within a class. Use for "stand up if your x coordinate is 5" type questions. Simple x=n, y=n type lines. Develop to drawing lines such as y=2x+3 lines.  
Match up equations to lines. Discuss the meaning of gradient and intercept using Bike Hire analogy. Find gradient of lines drawn and from coordinates  
Use worded examples to draw straight lines and solve the values for x and y.  
Match the equation with the table of values and complete the missing coordinates  
Reading different scales and reading information from a graph  
Empty axes for pupils to draw the travel graph as the teacher or another pupil tells a travel story  
100 square to colour in and spot patterns for different number patterns. Find the missing numbers in a sequence.  
Find differences between square number patterns and investigate  
Find the function machine for patterns made from coloured squares. Use the colours to explain why the rule works  
Match the sequence to the nth term. Create a sequence from a pattern of diagrams and explain why the rule works.  
Starting point for understanding sequences and nth terms. Shown a whole variety of 3n sequences pupils must match the correct nth term to the correct sequence and explain their choices.
