# Describing Picture Sequences

Students learn how about describing picture sequences.  During the lesson students learn how to model a picture sequence using its numerical pattern.

At the start of the lesson students recap describing number patterns on a term to term basis. In the main part they learn how to describe how a picture sequence and model it using number patterns. At the end of the lesson they consider how a fractals are made.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to generate the next term of a picture sequence.
• Most students should be able to generate and describe missing terms of any picture sequence.
• Some students should be able to understand fractals on a term to term basis.

#### Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
