Calculations with Limits of Accuracy

Students learn how to find the limits of accuracy in calculations using the upper and lower bounds of different measurements.  As learning progresses students move from finding the maximum and minimum areas and volumes to substituting known limits into various formulae.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the maximum and minimum sum and difference using limits of accuracy.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the maximum and minimum product and quotient using the limits of accuracy.
  • Some students should be able to calculate problems in context using limits of accuracy.

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]
