This SMILE resource contains two packs of games, investigations, worksheets and practical activities supporting the teaching and learning of equations, from solving simple linear equations to solving Diophantine problems.
Equations pack one contains fifteen work cards with a wide variety of activities covering number squares, solving linear equations, and forming and solving equations to solve puzzles.
Equations pack two contains nineteen work cards with activities requiring students to solve more complex linear equations, use algebra to solve problems involving perimeter and area of rectangles, substitute numbers into formulae, solve inequalities, use trial and improvement to solve quadratic equations, solve simultaneous equations graphically, solve equations involving fractions and brackets, solve quadratic equations, and solve Diophantine problems.
SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments. Related resources include answers to all of the cards and test books and answers.
