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.

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 […]

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

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.
