              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.

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
