              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.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
