Adding and Subtracting with Decimals

To add and subtract with decimal numbers students learn how to use the place value table to align the digits in columns. By fixing the position of the decimal point they gain a secure understanding of each digit’s value, why numbers are carried over for addition and how they can be borrowed when calculating the difference.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to add and subtract with decimals using the place value table.
  • Most students should be able to add and subtract with decimals using the written column method.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the difference between a pair of decimals in order to solve problems.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
