Good Morning and hope you are getting out in the garden and enjoying the sun. The Max. Temperature today should be 15 degrees!

Click on the studyclix link below and try this set of factorising sums. If you click on the marking section they show you the answers. It is great practise. We will also go over all these lessons when we get back to school.

Regards,

Mrs. J.

Hi there, hope you are all well and have been working through your exam paper pack. I will post some examples for you to work on each day. Try them. We can mark your papers when we return to school.

ALGEBRA SOLVE

With SOLVING you are finding the value of the letter in the equation.

Here is an example we can work through now.

2p = 8 The unknown letter is P. What we do to one side of the equation we must do to the other.

Keep p on the left.

Divide by 2 on each side of the = sign or bridge. 2p divided by 2 = p

8 divided by 2 = 4

So p = 4

Click on the above link and work through these equations. If you get an answer wrong it will show you how to do it correctly.

SIMPLIFY EQUATIONS

Try to sort all the same letters into 2 different boxes.

EXAMPLE

3a +4b + 4a -2b = 7a +2b Get all the a’s together then all the b’s
