Summary - Coming Soon!

This unit returns to the basics of algebra to ensure fluency in the bedrock of algebraic techniques.  Algebraic notation is considered in the representation of an unknown by a letter, the four operations in algebra and index numbers.  Algebraic expressions are introduced and used to represent information given in a context.  The substitution of numbers into algebraic expressions is dealt with, including into known and given scientific formula. Algebraic expressions are manipulated and simplified by collecting like terms, cancelling terms, multiplying and dividing terms, expanding brackets and factorising.  Algebraic terms involving indices and surds are met and manipulated using the laws of indices.  The unit ensures students understand key terminology relating to algebra such as expression, equation and formulae, and continues to deal with the formation and solving of simple equations.  Rearranging of simple formulae is considered including changing the subject of a formula involving indices.

What people say...

We have been using PG Online KS3 materials for well over a year now. PG Online materials have significantly reduced our worries, because the units are extremely well organised and make it much easier to teach the new curriculum.
