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.

The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
