• On your whiteboards, write down

• As many pairs of whole numbers as you can which make sense in this equation

• On your white boards, write down

• As many pairs of fractions which satisfy this equation

• On your whiteboards write down

• As many pairs of whole numbers which satisfy this equation – one number must be negative

• As above with decimals and fractions

• Express x in terms of y

### Using cards A5 to A8

• Give out the 4 cards to 4 pupils

• Ask pupils to stand at the front of the class showing the cards

• Give ‘x ‘ a value e.g x = 1

• Ask the pupils to put themselves in order lowest to highest value of the expression

• Repeat with other values, keep a record of card positions and ask for comments as x increases in value

• Suitable for Core and Extension classes

EXTENSION

• These letters stand for numbers in a sequence. If the numbers go up in twos and a = 2, what are the other numbers?

• How about if b = 6

• d = 7 …..

• The numbers now increase by 3 each time …..

• The difference is 4 each time. If c = 11 what are the other numbers?

• If d = 5 ……

• Each number is double the previous number. If c = 12 what is a ?

• ……..

The difference is 3 each time. If a =1 what is the nth term?

If a= 4, use the nth term to find the 10th term …….
