(a) Revision of simplifying algebraic expressions (multiplying, dividing, adding, expanding single brackets).
(b) Revision of solving simple equations, e.g. (x2 - 7)/2 = 9 and 1 - 3x = 2x - 7
Covers adding/subtracting algebraic fractions, multiplying/dividing algebraic fractions, simplifying algebraic fractions, and solving equations involving algebraic fractions.
Divided into 3 sections: (a) Algebraic notation and simplifying by collecting like terms and multiplying/dividing expressions.
(b) Substituting values, including negative numbers, into algebraic expressions, with consideration of BIDMAS.
(c) Forming algebraic expressions from potentially worded information, particularly appreciating it as the first step in solving equations (the latter which isn't covered till the 'Equations' topic).
(Used for Tiffin Year 8 scheme of work)
Add, subtract, multiply and divide algebraic fractions. Including a 'head to head' game.
