              Algebraic Proof

              In this mathematics lesson students learn how to construct a mathematical proof using algebraic notation and common number properties.  As learning progresses they are challenged to prove quadratic identities and consecutive terms.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use algebra to prove a linear relationship.
              • Most students should be able to expand the product of two or more brackets to prove a quadratic identity
              • Some students should be able to prove number properties through algebraic manipulation.

              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 […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]
