# Prime Numbers

To define what makes a prime number students begin the lesson by calculating factors of several integers.  Prime numbers are then defined and listed.  To aid their recollection of the first 12 primes students are challenged to apply them within calculations.  As learning progresses students use the Sieve of Eratosthenes to calculate all the primes up to 100.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to recall the first 12 prime numbers.
• Most students should be able to recall and apply the first 12 prime numbers.
• Some students should be able to use the Sieve of Eratosthenes to calculate all primes up to 100.

#### 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 […]
