Dividing Mixed Numbers and Top-Heavy Fractions

Students learn about dividing mixed numbers and top-heavy fractions using visual and written methods.At the start of the lesson students recap using visual methods to divide with normal fractions.  The plenary is used to assess the student's progress against each of the differentiated learning objectives.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to divide a top-heavy fraction or mixed number by an integer.
  • Most students should be able to use visual methods to divide with top-heavy fractions and mixed numbers.
  • Some students should be able to use written methods to divide with top-heavy fractions and mixed numbers.

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
