Problem Solving with Number

Students practise problem solving with number using times tables, addition, subtraction and the order of operations.

Students are encouraged to work in pairs or small groups throughout the lesson to aid peer support.  Most able students have the opportunity to investigate when brackets are not needed and unique totals that can be thrown on a special dartboard.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recall and apply times table facts up to and including 12 × 12
  • Most students should be able to using division as the opposite of multiplication.
  • Some students should be able to calculate all the factors of a number.

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 […]

Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a  position-to-term basis.  Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
