Expand and Simplify (Spot the Mistake Worksheet)
Spot the mistake activity can be used to assess pupils understanding of each topic.
This spot the mistake worksheet involves expanding and simplifying brackets. The worksheet given has an already matched up tarsia puzzle and pupils are told there are mistakes to be found.
Pupils should then work through the matched up edges to check, by doing the expansion themselves, if it is correct. If correct shade in one colour (I use green), if it is wrong pupils shade it in red and then list the correct answer in the space provided.
Spot the mistakes are a twist on the usual tarsia jigsaw puzzles and can be used to assess pupils understanding. The worksheet has a completed jigsaw and pupils are told there are mistakes. Pupils work through each question and answer to find the mistakes highlight them and correct those mistakes in the space provided.
