Calculations with Fractions and Mixed Numbers

Students apply their learning with fractions and mixed numbers to solve a wide range of calculations with fractions and mixed numbers.  Including: multiplication, division, addition and subtraction problems. This lesson links with the order of operations, perimeter, area and substitution into formulae.The start of the lesson is used to recap ordering fractions and mixed numbers with different denominators along a number line. At the end students are challenged solve a kinematics problem involving fractions.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to multiply and divide with mixed numbers and top-heavy fractions.
  • Most students should be able to use the four operations, including formal written methods, applied to proper and improper fractions, and mixed numbers.
  • Some students should be able to substitute mixed numbers and top-heavy fractions into a formula and evaluate the result.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
