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.

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 […]

Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]
