#### What's Included

• Smart Notebooks Presentation
• Activ Inspire Flipchart
• Lesson Plan
• Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation
• Differentiated Worksheet

Students learn how to perform vector addition and subtraction using column notation.  As learning progresses students begin to use vectors to define and prove geometrical properties.  Lesson comes with a Vectors worksheet.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to use vectors to describe the position of one object in respect of another.
• Most students should be able to use geometrical properties of parallelograms and trapezia to add and subtract given vectors.
• Some students should be able to prove the geometrical properties of shapes using vector addition.

#### 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 […]
