# Multiples of numbers and expressions

Students learn how to calculate multiples of numbers and expressions.  As learning progresses they move on to finding the lowest common multiple of two of more terms.  More able students find the multiples of unknowns.  Less able students use a grid to find the first five multiples of a number.

The start of the lesson is used to recap the multiples of seven.  In the main part students learn how to find multiples of a number and simple algebra terms.  In the plenary students are challenged to solve a real life problem using the lowest common multiple.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to find the multiples of number up to 12 × 12.
• Most students should be able to find the multiples of any number and a simple expression.
• Some students should be able to find the lowest common multiple of two expressions.

#### 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 […]
