Key tips from Studyit
- Learn to solve equations by setting out logical steps rather than using guess and check.
- Answers should be expressed in their simplest algebraic form.
- When solving a word problem, you will be required to write equation(s).
- Be careful to copy terms correctly from step to step.
- Practise basic algebra skills thoroughly.
- Revise integers thoroughly.
- Check your factorising by expanding your answer.
- Substitute your answer into the equation to check that it is correct.
- Show all working as correct answers only may not be sufficient for showing evidence of the level of thinking required by the standard.
- Show intermediate steps in a logical manner and clearly communicate what is being calculated.
- By giving only the answer, you may lose the opportunity to provide evidence for grades or to have minor errors ignored.
- In the assessment, when you have finished answering a question, read through your answer to check that you have answered the question that was asked.
- Attempt all questions as evidence from higher level questions may be used in awarding credit for a lower grade.
