### Polynomials

This resource contains seven problems requiring students to explore the graphs of polynomials. Students are required to explain how they know whether a graph will cross the x axis, explain the differences and similarities of the graphs of two polynomials given just the equation, asked to devise questions that could...

### Properties of Functions

This resource from Susan Wall contains five activities designed to enable students to explore the properties of functions in order to connect ideas together. Students learn how to solve equations, how to differentiate, how to find equations of tangents… but sometimes fail to see the picture as a whole. These...

### Quadratic Functions

This resource contains eleven problems requiring students to explore the graphs of quadratic equations, intersection points of quadratics and straight lines, explain what will be the same and what will be different about the graphs of two quadratic functions, transform quadratic graphs, find the odd one out,...

### Sequences

This resource contains six problems which explore arithmetic and geometric sequences. Students are asked to make observations about sequences, create a number of different sequences that all have the same sixth term, solve a question and then explore what happens if the question is altered slightly and find general...

### Sequences and Series

This resource, from Susan Wall, contains five advanced level activities designed to practise and strengthen understanding of the use of notation when dealing with sequences and series. Each resource starts with teacher notes followed by a student activity.

...### Simplifying Expressions Using the Rules of Logarithms

To increase confidence and fluency, students need to spend time practising the basic definition and rules of logarithms and be able to apply the rules in more complex expressions. This resource, from Susan Wall, contains four advanced level activities designed to practise the basics and extend understanding of...

### Sometimes, Always, Never

Three activities produced by Susan Wall are designed to provide the opportunity for students to explore the concepts involved and to highlight any misconceptions by discussing whether the statements presented can sometimes be true, are always true or can never be true.

**Algebra:** students are...

### Straight Line Graphs

This resource contains seven problems requiring students to think, explore, explain and justify the mathematics they use in order to solve the problems presented. Students will explore the equations of straight lines, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, equations of straight lines in a variety of forms and to find...

### Thinking Questions

This resource from Susan Wall contains a number of open–ended questions which explore understanding and allow a variety of approaches.

Each question is easily accessible but can be extended to make a more complex problem. Students are required to justify their answer and, where possible, generalise their...

### Trigonometrical Functions

This resource contains twelve problems requiring students to explore the properties of the functions of sine, cosine and tangent. Students explain which is the odd one out, state which functions can be represented by which graph, devise questions which give a certain set of solutions and state whether statements...
