Addition with Decimal Numbers

Students learn how to perform addition with decimal numbers using place value and the column method.  Number pyramids sums with missing digits are used to challenge the more able.  Less able students are encouraged to use a place value table to aid their working.The start of the lesson recaps ordering decimal numbers.  In the main part students are taught how to use the column method by aligning the numbers with the place value table.  At the end, students are challenged to solve a real life problem with decimals to assess their progress.

Differentiated Learning Objectives

  • All students should be able to calculate the sum of two decimal numbers using the place value table.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the sum of two or more decimals using the column method.
  • Some students should be able to use place value to calculate missing digits in a sum

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]
