Students learn how to simplify and use equivalent ratios to calculate proportionate amounts. They use this knowledge to model direct and indirect variation problems.

Students are guided through the discovery of Pythagoras’ Theorem using Pythagorean Triples. They use Pythagoras’ Theorem to find the hypotenuse and shorter side of any right-angled triangle. As learning progresses they begin to find lengths in 3D shapes.

Students learn how to choose and then plot the most appropriate representation for a set of data. As learning progresses they interpret a range of statistical diagrams to compare multiple distributions.

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have. Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out. This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson. Writing Equivalent Ratios A few students immediately go […]
