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.

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
