Back in March, I wrote, Number Resources, still very much a beginning and a work in progress, I have been reorganising pages. Making things easy to find is a never-ending task! Having written this blog since 2009, many older posts are still very useful – I want to make those easier to find.
Hence some new pages, the first created was Number under GCSE (14-16). This shows GCSE content and links to some favourite posts, also to sites that are particularly easy to search by topic. Further posts and resources and sites will be added, this is quite a project, but watch this space!
I have now added Algebra which brings some posts together such as:
Links to sites that are particularly easy to search by topic for Algebra are included, including some brilliant Underground Mathematics questions to challenge your GCSE students.
Underground Mathematics Algebra Review Questions (old O/AO level).
Some favourite tasks to challenge your GCSE students:
|Review question||Two values of x that differ by 5 satisfy x2 −12x + k = 0, what is k?|
|Review question||How small can this triangle be?|
|Fluency exercise||Quadratic solving sorter|
|Review question||Can we solve these simultaneous equations of degree 1 and 2?|
|Review question||Can we simplify these algebraic fractions?|
|Review question||If we know two values satisfying a quadratic, can we find the quadratic?|
|Rich example||Quadratic grids|
|Building blocks||Which quadratic?|
|Review question||Can we find the three inequalities that define this region?|
|Review question||Can we solve these simultaneous equations that involve reciprocals?|
|Package of problems||Name that graph|
|Building blocks||Gradient match|
|Fluency exercise||Multiple manipulations|
|Review question||When are these quadratic inequalities true together?|
|Building blocks||A tangent is …|
|Review question||When are the coefficients of a quadratic equal to its roots?|
|Many ways problem||Two-way algebra|
If you like the old exemplification examples – there are still some great questions, these have been added to the following pages:
