A remarkable resource Dr Frost - love the progression... many thanks for sharing... This kept my year 8 top set engaged for 2 lessons. They spotted a couple of very minor errors in the answers - perhaps they're deliberate. Slide 11 Q2 - should be x cubed, not x3. Slide 12, Q3b - should be 6x cubed...
