Multiplication Problems

Students are taught how to solve a range of real life multiplication problems using the grid and column method.  This lesson places an emphasis on using the most efficient calculation strategy to both estimate and calculate the solutions.The start of the lesson recaps finding the sum and difference of decimal numbers.  In the main, students learn how to write calculations from real life problems, estimate the solution and devise the most efficient strategy for calculating the solution.

Differentiated Learning Objectives

  • All students should be able to calculate the product a decimal and integer.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the product of a two or more decimal numbers.
  • Some students should be able to check their solutions by rounding to one significant figure.

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 […]
