Enlarging Shapes on a Grid

Students learn how to enlarge shapes objects on a grid using a centre and scale factor. Learning progresses from enlarging shapes to a positive scale factor to fractional scale factors. More able students are challenged to describe as well as perform enlargements by finding the centre and scale factor.The start of the lesson recaps describing translations using vectors. At the end of the lesson students are challenged to perform and describe enlargements on an isometric grid.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to enlarge an object using a positive integer scale factor and centre.
  • Most students should be able to perform and describe an enlargement to a positive integer scale factor and centre.
  • Some students should be able to perform and describe an enlargement to a positive fraction scale factor and centre.

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]
