Sharing in a Given Ratio

Students learn how to divide a quantity into two or more parts when given a ratio.  As learning progresses students link sharing to a ratio with known geometrical facts such as the perimeter, area and the angles in a quadrilateral.

The start of the lesson recaps writing and simplifying a ratio.  At the end of the lesson students are given a more problem solving question to develop their mathematical reasoning skills.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to share to a ratio where the total shares are a factor of the amount.
• Most students should be able to share to a ratio by calculating the value of a single share.
• Some students should be able derive and simplify a ratio involving three terms and share to any amount.

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 […]

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 […]
