Updated resource: Collecting Like Terms Powerpoint
Doing teaching resources is hard! By the time you’ve written some, you realise what you’ve written is a little rubbish!
For instance, my ProjectALesson powerpoints need massive improvement. They often contribute to a modern epidemic in teachers : click-itis. I’ve seen this quite a few times. I’ve been guilty of it myself. I have no idea how to get around this, really.
One of the things I did whist updating my collecting like terms PowerPoint was to remove a lot of the writing. I think this was pointless anyway. It can’t have done anything other that overwhelm students with too much stuff on the screen.
I have added a little bit of silent teacher modelling in there, talking about which terms are like.
I’m not sure what to do, really. Update the old resources or make new, better, resources. Hmmmm.
