# Short Multiplication

The start of the lesson reviews using the times table grid to calculate the products of two integers.   The development phase builds on this by introducing the Chinese Method as means to calculate the product of two, two or three digit numbers.  To extend this students begin to solve multiplication problems from real world contexts.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to calculate the product of a pair of integers involving tens and units.
• Most students should be able to calculate the product of a pair of integers involving hundreds, tens and units.
• Some students should be able to calculate the product of a pair of integers given in context.

#### 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 […]
