# Ratio and Equivalent Proportions

Students learn how to use ratio and equivalent proportions to write a ratio as a fraction and percentage.  Using diagrams, students gain a visual understanding of how to write a ratio as a simplified fraction and percentage.

The start of the lesson recaps writing ratios and simplifying ratios through similar shapes.  In the plenary students are assessed against the differentiated learning objectives.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to write a simplified ratio as a fraction.
• Most students should be able to write a ratio as a fraction and percentage.
• Some students should be able to convert between ratio and fractions and percentages using proportional reasoning.

#### 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 […]
