Bisecting an Angle

Students learn how to construct an angle bisector using a pair of compasses and ruler.  As learning progresses they are challenged to use angle bisectors to identify an equidistant path between two lines.The start of the lesson is used to recap using perpendicular bisectors to find the shortest path possible between a line and point.  The plenary challenges students to identify a region that is equidistant between two lines and two points.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to bisect an acute angle using a pair of compasses and ruler.
  • Most students should be able to bisect and angle using a pair of compasses and ruler.
  • Some students should be able to construct an angle bisector to identify an equidistant path.

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]

Solving Inequalities using a Number Line

Students should be able to represent the solutions to an inequality on a number line, using set notation or as a list of integer values.  Here’s how I teach using the balance method for solving inequalities using a number line. Matching inequalities, Number sets and Number Lines At the start of the lesson students recap […]

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.  […]
