# Solving Inequations

The start of the lesson is used to review deriving inequalities from number lines.  The development phase builds on this by using number lines to represent a range of solutions for inequations.  As learning progresses students move on to solving inequations involving brackets and negatives using the balance method.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to solve a two step linear inequation and represent the solutions on a number line.
• Most students should be able to solve a linear inequation involving brackets and represent the solutions on a number line.
• Some students should be able to solve a linear inequation between two boundaries and represent the solutions on a number line.

#### 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 […]
