# Factors of an Integer

The start of the lesson involves organising integers within a Venn diagram according to their number properties.   Students build on this in the development phase by considering the factors of an integer using a times table grid and then mental methods.   The application of calculating factors extends their learning later in the lesson by derivation of Primes and Square Numbers.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the factors of an integer using a times table grid.
• Most students should be able to calculate the factors of an integer using mental methods.
• Some students should be able to discover the first ten prime and square numbers by considering their factors.

#### 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 […]
