Adding and Subtracting in Standard form

Students learn how to use non-calculator methods to solve addition and subtraction problems involving standard form.  As learning progresses students consider negative powers of ten as well as positive.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use the column method to add numbers written in the form A × 10n where n is greater than 1.
  • Most students should be able use the column method to add numbers written in the form A × 10n where n is an integer.
  • Some students should be able to use non-calculator methods to solve addition and subtraction problems involving standard form.

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]
