Dividing with Fractions using Visual Methods

Year 8 maths lesson where students learn about dividing with fractions using visual methods. Learning progresses from finding the reciprocal of a number in the starter to dividing with fractions using visual and written methods in the development phase.At the end of the lesson students are assessed against each of the learning objectives.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to divide a fraction by an integer using visual methods.
  • Most students should be able to divide a fraction by an integer and fraction using visual methods.
  • Some students should be able to divide a fraction by an integer and fraction using written methods.

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 […]
