Equations with Algebraic Fractions

Students learn how to solve equations with algebraic fractions by finding common denominators and using the balance method.  As learning progresses they are challenged to solve equations with algebraic fractions involving quadratics by factorising.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able calculate the difference and total of algebraic fractions.
  • Most students should be able to solve an equation involving a linear algebraic fraction.
  • Some students should be able to solve an equation involving a quadratic algebraic fraction.

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 […]
