              Adding and Subtracting Algebraic Fractions

              The key idea with adding and subtracting algebraic fractions is to create common denominators.  As learning progresses students use algebraic techniques such as simplifying products and expanding brackets to evaluate the fractions.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to add and subtract a pair of algebraic fractions with numerical denominators.
              • Most students should be able to add and subtract a pair of algebraic fractions with a single unknown as the denominator.
              • Some students should be able to add and subtract a pair of algebraic fractions with an algebraic expressions as the denominator.

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
