              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.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              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 […]

              Getting Ready for a New School Year

              When getting ready for a new school year I have a list of priorities to work through. Knowing my team have all the information and resources they need to teach their students gives me confidence we will start the term in the best possible way.  Mathematics Teaching and Learning Folder All teachers receive a folder […]
