Problem Solving with Time Tables

Students practise problem solving with time tables using multiplication grids, factors and understanding division as the opposite of multiplication.The start of the lesson reinforces multiplication as a more efficient method of long addition.  In the development phase students are challenged to complete a series of more difficult multiplication grids and use division as the opposite of multiplication.  The plenary is used to introduce factor pairs and square numbers.More able students are challenged to investigate why certain numbers have an odd number of factors.  Less able students have access to a 12 by 12 time table grid.

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.

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]

Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]
