This resource contains 70 complete lesson plans with complementary worksheets for the students, specifically designed for GCSE level maths. This book contains 70 ready-to-use maths lessons suitable for the new GCSE Mathematics curriculum. The lesson plans contain objectives from both the D-G range and the A-C range to make them adaptable for different sets or for use in a mixed-ability context. Each lesson consists of a left-hand page for the teacher, outlining the structure of the lesson from a starter through to homework, and a right-hand photocopiable pupil worksheet to provide a setting in which pupils are encouraged to explore alternative methods and to describe and explain their ideas. Some lessons offer alternative routes through the curriculum such as practicing indices by solving radical equations, while others concentrate on difficult concepts, like appreciating that not all mathematical relationships are linear. The lessons focus on problem solving and putting maths into context, and are an essential resource for any busy teacher of maths GCSE.
It's hard enough for teachers to fit all their marking, extra-curricular duties and training into their lives, let alone finding time to think up exciting new ways of delivering their subject to a mixed-ability class. This new series offers complete, curriculum-friendly lesson plans for busy secondary school teachers of various disciplines. Each title includes an assortment of approximately 70 lesson plans designed to motivate and inspire students. Each plan consists of a teacher's sheet, providing: the aims and objectives of the lesson; the materials required; a lesson starter, main lesson plan and plenary, each with suggested timeframes to help teachers keep inside the parameters of the lesson; homework ideas; and, guidance on how to adapt the activities to make them harder or easier for gifted and talented, or less able pupils. Each plan also includes a photocopiable, or downloadable student worksheet which corresponds to the teacher's lesson plan.
