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
Equalize
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
GRAPHS
 
Coordinate grids
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
Equation of a straight line
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.
Gradient and Intercept
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.
Linear graphs plenary
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
SEQUENCES
 
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
Sequences
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.
