# Sharing to a Ratio

The start of the lesson is used to review sharing a sum of money equally between three people.   The development phase builds on this by demonstrating how to share amounts to a ratio.   The plenary challenges students to consider a problem in context by sharing to a ratio and calculating proportional amounts.
##### 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 to derive and simplify a ratio involving three terms and share to any amount.

#### 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 […]
