              Describing Number Patterns

              Students learn describing number patterns on a term to term basis.  More able students tackle Fibonacci and geometric sequences.At the start of the lesson students recap using function machines to find a series of outputs.  In the main part of the lesson they learn how to describe, continue and predict missing terms in a sequence.  At the end of the lesson they encounter the sequences created from the Binomial triangle.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to describe the term to term rule of simple linear sequences.
              • Most students should be able to describe the term to term rule and calculate missing terms of a numerical sequence.
              • Some students should be able to describe the term to term rule of sequences involving fractions, decimals and percentages.

              Behaviour Management in a Mathematics Lesson

              As we approach the start of the next term I thought I would share some tips on behaviour management in a mathematics lesson. These are things that I have picked up over the years and have worked well for me. I am sure there are opposing viewpoints and you may find some of these tips […]
