Non-Linear Direct Proportion

Students learn how to model non-linear direct proportion functions using formulae and graphs.  Learning progresses from deriving the equation to manipulating it to calculate missing values.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the constant of variation that models how two measurements are in direct proportion.
• Most students should be able to derive and use the formula that models how two measurements are in direct proportion.
• Some students should be able to model how two measurements are in nonlinear direct proportion using a formula and graph.

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 […]
