              Dividing a number by a power of ten

              Students learn about dividing a number by a power of ten.  Most able students divide by 0.1, 0.01 and 0.01.  Less able students are encouraged to use a place value table to divide whole numbers by 10 and 100.The lesson begins by recapping how to multiply by 10, 100 and 1000 using place value.  The part goes on to demonstrate how to use the place value table to divide by a power of ten.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to create six divisions by arranging a group of cards.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to divide an integer by 10, 100 and 1000 using the place value table.
              • Most students should be able to use the place value table to divide numbers by a power of ten.
              • Some students should be able to multiply and divide by 0.1, 0.01 and 0.001.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
