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.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. 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 […]
