              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.

              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 […]
