Place Value

The start of the lesson reviews writing numbers as words by completing a cross number puzzle.   The development phase builds on this through using a place value grid to identify and compare the value of each digit.  As students’ learning progresses they begin to manipulate number sets to find the largest and smallest numbers possible.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to recognise the value of a digit using a place value table.
• Most students should be able to recognise the value of a digit using mental methods.
• Some students should be able to calculate the largest sum and difference of two numbers through manipulating the place value.

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 […]
