Division with Decimal Numbers

Students learn how to perform division with decimal numbers using the box method.  Less able students use a timetables grid to help with arithmetic.  More able find missing lengths when given the area or volume of a shape.

The start of the lesson is used to recap multiplication.  Later, students are taught how to divide with decimal numbers without a remainder.  Throughout the lesson students are encouraged to estimate solutions.  In the plenary, students find the mean average of five decimal numbers.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to divide an integer by a single digit.
  • Most students should be able to use the box method to divide with decimals without leaving remainders.
  • Some students should be able to use significant figures to approximate division.

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 […]
