Patterns and number facts: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Patterns and number facts. Students bring together knowledge and skills of algebraic and graphical representations of linear functions and quadratic functions. They make these connections by systematically varying the parameters in the rules y = ax + b and y = a(x + ...

Patterns and number facts: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Patterns and number facts. Students work with a variety of functions and relations and their rules, tables of values and graphs using digital tools. Students manipulate, explore, investigate, make conjectures and identify emerging patterns from functions and relations. ...

Formulate and manipulate expressions: Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Formulate and manipulate expressions. Students extend the distributive law to expanding the product of two binomials (ax + b)(cx + d) and the factorisation of non-monic quadratic expressions with integer coefficients. Students practise algebraic manipulation involving ...

Algebraic equations: video and teaching guide

This video uses an everyday scenario of three people sharing a taxi ride to explore algebraic thinking, and to apply that thinking to a financial context, drawing on reasoning and mathematical modelling. Use the video with the supporting teacher guide as a springboard to explore mathematical concepts. The teacher guide ...

Sphero slalom lesson

In this lesson students explore slalom sports and how competitors maximise speed when completing a course. Students research different slalom sports and then share their findings with the class. Students investigate the impact of distance and friction on time to complete a course through digital and unplugged activities. ...

Area and perimeter: Year 6 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 6 is for the topic of Area and perimeter. Students refine their understanding of area and perimeter and establish the formula for the area of a rectangle and use it to solve practical problems.

Use variables: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Use variables. Students apply and extend their knowledge and skills of exponent laws to simplify or expand numeric and algebraic expressions and solve equations.

Mathematical modelling (Algebra): Year 10 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 10 is for the topic of Mathematical modelling. Students apply linear, quadratic and exponential functions to modelling contexts and outline reasons for selecting a particular model. They use tables of values to look for patterns in data, recognising that linear functions have constant first ...

Find unknown values: Year 5 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 5 is for the topic of Find unknown values. Students explore mathematical equations involving multiplication and division.

Find unknown values: Year 6 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 6 is for the topic of Find unknown values. Students find unknown quantities in numerical equations involving a combination of operations.

reSolve: Pythagoras' Theorem - Phone finding

This lesson challenges students to apply Pythagoras' Theorem to explore a practical real-world problem. Students explore technology reliant on mathematical concepts. The lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points and student resources such as ...

BTN: Calculating area using locust plagues

How many locusts in a plague? Find out just how big the threat of locusts can be and how farmers try to prevent the plagues from getting out of control. This clip provides context for a combination of area, area units and rate problems.

reSolve: Algebra: Think of a number- Binomial Equations

This lesson engages students in investigating a 'think of a number' game and then model it visually and algebraically. This develops skills in algebraic operations including expanding, factorising and collecting like terms. Students investigate whether the game will work for any number and are challenged to generate the ...

TIMES Module 35: Number and Algebra: proportion - teacher guide

This is a 22-page guide for teachers. The module introduces the idea of direct proportion and illustrates its many uses in science, commerce and measurement. It looks at ratios, gradients and fractions. A history of the development and use of proportion concludes the module.

TIMES Module 34: Number and Algebra: quadratic equations - teacher guide

This is a 19-page guide for teachers. It introduces quadratic equations and methods for solving them.

TIMES Module 9: Number and Algebra: multiplication of whole numbers - teacher guide

This is a 23-page guide for teachers. This module contains a description of suitable models for multiplication, a discussion of the types of problems that require multiplication for their solution, and mental and written strategies for multiplication. The use of the commutative, associative and distributive laws is described. ...

TIMES Module 21: Number and Algebra: rates and ratios - teacher guide

This is a 17-page guide for teachers. This module introduces the idea of ratios and rates. Ratios are used to compare two quantities. The emphasis is usually on comparing parts of the whole. Rates are a measure of how one quantity changes for every unit of another quantity. It relates the ideas of ratios, gradient and fractions.

TIMES Module 35: Number and Algebra: the quadratic function - teacher guide

This is a 29-page guide for teachers. It introduces graphing of quadratic functions.

Algebra four

This is an interactive game for two students in which they solve algebraic equations, similar to 'Connect four'. The players can choose from problems that are one- or two-step, quadratic, have distributive properties or have variables on both sides, and more than one problem type can be chosen. The length of time each player ...
