              Collecting Like Terms

              Students learn how to simplify algebraic expressions by collecting like terms using basic algebraic notation.  As learning progresses they evaluate the perimeter around shapes with algebraic lengths.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to simplify like terms involving one unknown.
              • Most students should be able to simplify like terms involving multiple unknowns and constants.
              • Some students should be able to simplify like terms using addition and subtractions involving multiple unknowns and constants.

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 […]

              Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

              Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

              How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

              The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]
