This is a whole lesson on collecting like terms and simplifying expressions. It is very thorough and really helps pupils to get their heads around algebra and gives a very good foundation for further lessons on algebra. It importantly looks very clearly at the difference between adding and multiplying terms as well as vital keywords.
The PowerPoint contains:
+ a starter
+ lesson objectives
+ keywords and terminology
+ superb teaching and examples
+ embedded questions with answers
+ a plenary.
The lesson does have embedded questions, but I have added in 2 excellent worksheets that depending on the group might use in the lesson or as homework to reinforce learning. Also included are some Tarsia activities for those groups who prefer group activities.
