# Multiplication with Decimal Numbers

Students learn how to perform addition with decimal numbers using the column method.  More able students are challenged to calculate the product of 2 more digit numbers using factorisation.

The start of the lesson is used to develop student's numerical reasoning.  In the main, students learn how to use the place value table to calculate the product of a decimal and integer.  The plenary challenges students to calculate the product of two, two digit decimals using place value and factorisation.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the product of a two digit and unit integer.
• Most students should be able to calculate the product of a decimal and unit integer.
• Some students should be able to calculate the product of two decimal numbers

#### 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 […]
