Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a position-to-term basis. Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term.
An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another. To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal. There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear. In this blog I write about how I […]
When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]
There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio. Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]
