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.

Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
